Over the past couple months, I’ve been focusing on getting fitter and more healthy in general. I started exercising regularly, going to Barre classes and hitting the gym.
At first, my gym bag was kind of chaotic. With time, I began to know what I needed with me and what I didn’t. If you’d like to know what I keep in my gym bag keep read on!
The most important things in my gym bag, are my earphones. I can never exercise without having my own playlist playing or having to go back to wearing traditional earphones. The Apple AirPods are wireless which makes exercising so much easier no wires tangling or constraining you!
Although I love my AirPods, the small packaging can get easily lost in my bag, that’s why this PodPocket is the perfect case for them. Not only is it so cute, but it can also be easily connected to your keychain or bag so you never lose them. I always know where my AirPods are thanks to my PodPocket in my chaotic gym bag. They also come in handy when I’m working from a coffee shop, and because they’re attached to my keys they’re always with me!

Personally, I prefer to exercise with a bare face. You totally can make up if you like but my pores get too clogged so I skip it. After a sweat sesh, I wash my face immediately afterward. I always have a travel size cleanser to help clear out my pores. I’m currently using the First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser With Red Clay which cleanses my skin without overdrying it. When sweating your whole body looses water, thus for hydration. So after cleansing, I make sure to hydrate my face with the Murad Hydrating Toner. It comes in a spray bottle so it’s easy and quick to use on the go!
I don’t know about you, but I always suffer from dry lips when exercising. Therefore, a lip balm is essential in my gym bag. If you love the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum cream‘s smell, you’re gonna absolutely love this Sol De Janeiro lip balm! Not only does it smell so good, it also keeps your lips hydrated after a workout.
As for my hair, I admit I don’t wash it every day. On the days when I don’t sweat much, I just use my Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder dry shampoo powder to suck up the excess oils and refresh it. I then brush it off with my Tangle Teezer which is compact enough to keep in any bag, not just a gym bag.
Finally, the last few things I have in my gym bags are a big water bottle, a clean face towel and a healthy snack. The Bounce Superberry energy balls are my favorite. They’re both nutritious being made from real ingredients and very tasty to boot!
These are all the things I like to have in my bag. What about you? What do you keep in your gym bag? Is there anything I should add to mine? Let me know!
