Until you’re at the gym – and realize you’ve neglected to stock your gym bag with an essential – you don’t realize how important certain things are (i.e. arriving for a spin class only to realize you forgot a hairband or headband…#truestory #theworst) With a busy life, fitting in the gym or a workout may only be possible in a small window of time. Having a stocked gym bag, ready to go, can mean really help with your motivation to get that workout out of the way.
We are opening our gym bag to share our top essentials.
Keep a full set in your bag. That way, you can workout even if you didn’t plan for it.
A good water bottle is so important. This one is an insulated water bottle and it keeps water cold for a longer duration.
Extra Hair Clips / Hair Bands
There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot a hairband or headband. Your hair can really distract you during a workout.
It’s never a bad idea to have this in your bag — great for pre and post workout. Some other toiletries to consider might include dry shampoo, body spray, facial wipes (makeup remover).
Music/Earbuds & Phone
Make sure you have the essentials to listen to your music – earbuds, a power bank if needed and phone.
Pain Reliever for Sore Muscles and Joints
If you’re working out consistently, you could experience achy muscles or joints. I like to use Biofreeze® Pain Reliever for temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints. (These might be associated with backaches, arthritis, sore muscles, joints, strains, sprains and bruises.)
I love that Biofreeze® comes in a roll-on application. It makes it fast, easy and mess-free to apply so that you can get on with what is most important to you.
More about Biofreeze®:
- Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products do not require a prescription, contain United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade menthol to provide fast acting pain relief, and are free of parabens and propylene glycol.
- Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products are as effective as ice for treating pain – but much easier!
- They are safe and effective pain relief alternative because they are non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates or addictive substances.
