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 get organised and be sure to stock up on these gym bag essentials to make the whole escapade that little more bearable. Once you’re done, you’ll feel great!
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 ones 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 mathcing top to be the belle of the ball/gym.
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
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.
5. Mio Skincare Gym Kit
The Mio Skincare Gym Kit (£21) contains two workout necessities and is compact enough to stick in the side pocket of your gym bag. Perfect. The kit includes Clean Slate Swipes to remove make up before getting your sweat on and Workout Wonder Invigorating Muscle Gel, to relax muscles after exercising. Voila!
