7 Things to Put in Your Gym Bag

Fitness Pittsburgh

Your gym bag holds all type of necessary items, from a change of clothes to deodorant and all the other gym worthy accessories in between. At the Wilfred R. Cameron Wellness and Fitness Center in Washington, we are dedicated to providing you with a great workout experience.

To help you get the most out of your gym bag, we’ve put together a list of essentials that can make your workout experience more enjoyable and convenient.

Keep Your Gym Bag Smelling Fresh with a Deodorizer Pouch

As you may already know, after multiple uses holding sweaty clothes and tennis shoes, your gym can begin to have an unpleasant odor. To help prevent that, you can use a reusable smell deodorizer pouch in your gym to hold your smelly items and contain their odor.

Drawstring Storage Bag to Keep Your Small Items Organized

A small drawstring bag can help keep items such as jewelry, band-aids, phone charger, hair ties, breath mints, or any other smaller items you need. By using a drawstring bag, you can avoid digging and searching for your smaller items, making them easier to access.

Full Body Wipes to Refresh After Your Workout

If there is no time for you to shower after your workout, consider putting full body wipes in your gym bag to help you clean off and feel refreshed after your lunchtime workout! There are many brands out there to choose from, so it’s best to shop around and find a brand that meets your needs.

Dry Shampoo to boost Your Post-Workout Hair

Dry shampoo is available in scented and unscented types along with varieties that suit all different hair types. This product can help soak up the sweat and oils in your hair, leaving it smelling and looking great.

Microfiber Towels to Soak up Sweat

Microfiber towels are more compact than your regular bath towels and care super absorbent, making them an excellent option for soaking up sweat during your workout or drying off after your shower.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

More workouts come with more sweat and more showers which can cause your skin to become dry. For a quick solution for your parched, post-workout skin, consider using an Eminence travel kit to moisturize your skin and save space in your bag.

Pre and Post Workout Snacks

Fueling up for your workout and after your workout is essential. You may consider purchasing a Clif Builder’s or Quest protein bar or perhaps a small bag of Skinny Dipped Almonds or a Totally Fit Mama Gluten-Fee mini bar to fill your gym bag with healthy snacks.
