Getting to the gym can be hard enough, but getting to the gym and realizing you forgot something that’s essential to your workout makes things even harder. And, while most gyms and studios are stocked with the necessities, the best way to be prepared (no matter when and where you’re working out) is to have a gym bag full of all your essentials. It will save you valuable time when you’re running out the door in the morning and keep you prepared for anything that comes your way. Lucky for you, we’ve pulled together a list of the gym bag essentials we can’t live without. Read on, and start packing!


 Extra-Roomy Bag

Trade that trusty duffle for a gym bag that’ll hold it all in style. This season, the athleisure trend is all the rage, so we suggest investing in a carryall that you’ll be proud to rock to and from the gym. Our current bag crush? This Signature Bag, – featuring a large compartment perfect for holding workout clothes, an interior padded sleeve to store electronics, an imploding shoe bag, and tiny zip pockets to keep your most precious essentials safe.

Eco-Friendly Water Bottle

While most studios have water fountains readily available, a reusable water bottle is an essential in our books. Our current favorite – the Infusion Water Bottle –features detachable pieces for easy care, and a middle strainer to add fresh fruit combinations to your water. It also comes complete with a flip-top, leak-proof lid (no more spills!), and attached wrist lanyard for easy transportation.

Ensure maximum benefits from your workout with grip bottom socks. Besides enhancing your routine, these socks will give you extra confidence as you move in yoga, Barre, Pilates, or dance class. The socks we’re wearing now feature a slip-free grip bottom and ultra-comfortable arch support. Introducing the No-Toe No-Heel Grip Bottom Socks.


Comfy & Seamless Headband

Keep your locks in check with a headband that’s cool, comfortable, and perfect for working out and beyond. Seamless options are always #1, and our go-to Seamless Headband, boasts interior silicone grips to keep strays at bay and a stylish-yet-subtle feminine design, too.
