What's in my gym bag | Lifestyle

Today I thought I would share with you what's inside my gym bag. I mean I have literally been living out of this bag for the last 3 months, I don't even take a handbag into work with me anymore. 

I have very fixed gym routine and 3 times a week I go to the gym twice in one day so morning and night this means I have to carry quite a lot with me. I would love to have like one of those small, cute, girly gym bags but I just can't fit half of what I need in it so I have to settle with my bulky Nike bag, but I love it anyway!  

I haven't included my trainers in this bag because they are always on my feet unless I'm in the office, then I change into shoes or boots. My gym bag must haves are:- 

  • Gym clothes
  • Bath sheet 
  • Hand towel  
  • Hair brush
  • Deodorant
  • Make up bag
  • Rail card 
  • Card holder
  • Headphones  
  • Umbrella
I must admit I have excluded some extra bits such as my work fob, apples, work clothes because that just a little boring but as you can see I actually carry quite a lot on me. I also forgot to take a picture of my shampoo and shower gel - dumb dumb!

I was recently told that my gym was closing down in my town which was a little heartbreaking I'm not gonna lie and the way Virgin Active handled it was pretty bad actually. This means however I'll be joining a Fitness First gym in London which will probably work out a little better for me in the sense that my workouts in the morning will be a little longer. 

What do you carry in your gym bag that you think I'm missing?


  1. More than anything, this has given me a kick up the butt to actually break my 7 year exercise drought (I wish I was kidding but unfortunately I'm not) How cute is your VS bag and Lulu Guinness card holder? So pretty! :)


    1. I must admit I have been inactive for a good few years and this year I just thought no more, I must do something! Ah thank you very much!xx

  2. I'm a no gym fitness gal, but I love your card holder

    1. Haha! Thank you very much, gotta love a bit Lulu Guinness!xx

  3. Great essentials! That dove spray is a new favorite of mine, it makes getting ready in the morning just a little easier.

    1. Thank you!! I'm a massive fan of Dove too!xx

  4. We should each inquire as to whether we are demonstrating the significance of a solid lifestyle to our kids.
