Your Gym bag is the second most important thing you will need at the gym after focusing on your workout, so make sure you give yourself some time to stock it with the essentials you will need pre and post workout.
Here are 9 things you shouldn’t forget while going to the gym:
1. A bottle of water
Make sure you have a big water bottle to keep your body hydrated during and after workout.
2. Athletic Shoes (Sneakers)
Your pair of athletic shoes will not only make you feel comfortable while exercising, but also will keep you safe.
Not all gyms provide locks for your locker, so always bring yours, just in case.
Deodorant is key at the gym, make sure you have one to keep your smell fresh during and after workout, choose your favorite brand and apply it before and after your workout shower.
5. Music Player
Whether its your phone, ipod, or mp3 player, you should always have a good playlist to encourage you and keep you enthusiastic.
6. Your Headphone
In order to listen to your favorite music, headphones are a must. Wireless headphones will be suitable for your workout.
Keep some fresh wipes in your bag, you will definitely need them during or after your workout, imagine if you’re running out of time and can’t take a shower!
8. Personal Towels
Even if your Gym provides towels, but it’s definitely better that you bring your own ones, a small towel to be with you during your workout, and a larger one to use after showering.
9. Healthy Pre and After Workout Snacks
Some nuts, cereal, whole grain, fruits, or shakes are perfect.
