What I Keep In My Gym Bag

Hi loves ❤️

Are you a recent Gym lover? Do you seem to never have what you need at the gym? One thing I struggled with when I first started consistently going to the gym was feeling under prepared.

I wanted to pass my knowledge to all of you beginner gym rats. I am always prepared for the unexpected – and you can be too!

My gym bag is just a simple Amazon find. My gym, Planet Fitness, provides you with a free bag when you sign up – but I never found the bag they provided was big enough. It definitely got me by for awhile. I love my bag I purchased from Amazon because it has a separate compartment for my shoes and a pocket for wet clothes as well.

Permanent Items In My Gym Bag

These items I keep in my bag and am in big trouble if I run out. The main thing I tend to forget to repack is my hair ties. Often, I forget to return my extra hair ties to my bag after I have to use them.

  • Wireless Headphones (The MOST Important)
  • Facial Wipes
  • Extra Hair Ties
  • Deodorant
  • Extra Tampons
  • Tylenol
  • Extra Pair of Socks
  • Lock for Gym Lockers
  • Tanning Lotion / Eye Wear
  • Resistance Bands
Additional Items

These items I take out / replace each day I pack my gym bag. I essentially have a mental checklist each time a pack my bag in order to make sure I have everything before I head off to work.

  • Pre-Workout
  • BCAA’s
  • Post Workout Protein
  • Bottle Shaker
  • Gym Clothes (Leggings, Sports Bra, T-Shirt, Socks)
  • Tennis Shoes

My list is pretty simple, I don’t try to complicate things. I want to be prepared for certain scenarios like if I forget socks or hair ties, want to tan after my workout, or if I need a pain killer. I want to feel prepared but not over pack.

Do you have a few essentials that isn’t on my list? Let me know below!!
