We’ve all been through the struggle, knowing how great we’ll feel after going to the gym, but we just can’t be bothered to get up and do it. So stock up on your gym bag essentials and get organised to make the whole escapade that little more bearable. Once you’re done, you’ll feel great!
Read on to discover our top 10 gym bag essentials for all you Workout Wonders out there…
Our first gym bag essential has to be music. Music is the main priority when it comes to working out, running on a treadmill just isn’t the same without Beyonce blasting out the earphones. Grab yourself some wireless headphones, so you don’t suffer from the annoying tangle we all endure with normal earphones! Pump the volume up for that extra motivation on the treadmill. You can do it!
2. Workout Wear
We all know looking good while working out gives us that extra motivation. Get some funky leggings and team with a matching top from MyProtein to be the star of the show at the gym or in your Zumba class.
3. Stay Hydrated
The most important thing whilst working out is staying hydrated, keep a bottle of water in your gym bag and re-fill it daily with fresh water. Our favourites are the filter bottles, which filter your water as you fill it and keeps your thirst at bay.
4. Hair Ties
If you have long hair, don’t forget your hair bobbles. We buy them, we use them, we lose them, it’s a vicious circle. Keep a pack in your gym bag to ensure your tresses don’t stick to your face whilst you’re working out – not a good look! The Invisibobbles are perfect for not only keeping your locks secure, but minus the annoying dint most hair bobbles leave post-ponytail.
The Mio Active Skin Routine contains two gym bag essentials to revitalise, hydrate and protect your body as you push it to its limits. First up is our Dive In Body Wash, this refreshing wash is supercharged with energising natural ingredients and a 100% natural Eucalyptus fragrance. Active, natural AHA’s help protect your skin against the drying effects of salt water and chlorine whilst banishing any post-exercise odours for a the ultimate refreshing, zingy feeling. After your shower, cool and soothe sore muscles with our Muscle Motivator Cooling Gel. Infused with a revitalising Eucalyptus and Menthol fragrance and a cool blue texture, this gel is an essential SOS for hardworking bodies.
