Let’s be honest, you would cart your entire life from point A to point B if you could. And so would we! The same goes for when you head to the gym. You never know what you’re going to need, so the perfect gym bag needs to be able to do it all. It has to be chic and stylish, while also easily helping you transition from the office to the gym. Lastly, you want to be able to pamper yourself or prep for any post-exercise outings you have planned.
Regardless of your workout style or level of intensity, you can score points for fashion and functionality with a bag filled with a few items we think are must-haves for the perfect work out sesh! Follow along for our top gym bag essentials for every woman.
stay hydrated with your favorite water bottle
Now you may be thinking, duh. But it really is the most important item you should always have. Staying hydrated during and after the gym does wonders for your body and skin – by replacing moisture. Plus, water fountains are so second grade, right?
wipe away the day
Clean the skin you’re in after an intense workout session with perfectly sized face wipes that fit in your bag and purse – making life at the gym a little less messy.
For all those times when you can’t rinse and repeat, just spray on some dry shampoo and slip out.
knock your socks off
They truly are your toes & shoes’ best friend. Working out without socks is both unhygienic and super uncomfortable.
Because sweat is expected, but manageable. If your gym doesn’t have a shower, or you just don’t have enough time, face and body wipes are the quickest way to refresh until you’re able to shower. And makeup wipes are a must to keep your face clean and clear.
hold up the girls
Nobody wants a black eye. Period. Keep everything where you want it to be with a cute and durable sports bra.
doll yourself up
For freshening up your face, a cosmetic bag is also essential for concealing and containing all of your just-in-case personal hygiene items like pain meds, feminine products, and razors, or just your favorite makeup products.
