If you’ve been keeping up with your fitness new year’s resolution, well… CONGRATULATIONS!! You are still on track to a healthier you! But if you are still getting started, you might need to know some essentials to make sure you come in the gym for different types of workouts.
First things first(I’m the realest), I stuff all my gym gear, big or small in my trusty Printed green canvas shoulder bag(which I don’t have a link to), but this is a similar one, link here!. I like the whole zipper-less design to make it more versatile when I need to throw in a yoga mat or anything that can’t exactly fit in a closed bag.
Aside from taking with me a pair of rubber shoes like my Nike Zoom Pegasus sneaks, I make sure I throw in my long time favorite deodorant, the Lady Speed Stick. It has been tried and tested, its really the best!
The two things that I constantly bring in my bag even if I am not so sure if i’ll be using it are the Nike Training Gloves and my Nike Arm Band. The gloves come in handy when I do things like TRX, crossfit or basically things that have been holding a bunch of equipment. While the Arm Band comes to great use when I go on jogs because I always prefer taking my phone with me just incase!
When it comes to gym attire, I am not too picky when it comes to the actual apparel thats why I just like wearing my usual H&M Yoga Leggings and Sports Top. But when it comes to “support” I always like to make sure that I wear a high impact bra to keep the ladies up there!, my fave is the Nike Sports Bra (High Impact).
I don’t know if its just me, but I hate bringing huge water jugs to the gym. I see no point in bringing a 1.5L jug when you can easily fill it up at the gym if ever you run out anyway?! My 20 Oz Klean Kanteen is the best water jug I have ever had to date. It is so versatile!!! It keeps your drink iced for more than 24 hours and hot drinks for up to 8 hours. This is such a great investment! I already have two!
I am not much of a social person at the gym. I tend to focus on what I have to accomplish on that day then leave when I have finished it. To help me zone out all the overheard chitchat, I put on my Urbanears Humlan Headphones. I finally traded in my in-ear earphones for headphones because its less straining on my ears(because I also use these during my 9 hour work days), plus they are washable!
***I know A LOT of my things are from Nike but this post is in NO WAY sponsored by them. LOL! I wish it was though!!(srsly though… Nike, my contact info is on my blog) I have a Nike depot close by so that has always been my go-to active wear store.
