What's in your gym bag?

Somedays I feel like I spend more time getting ready for the next day's workout, taking stuff out of my gym bag, putting in into another, adding stuff to the gym bag....etc. So, in the process of putting together my gym bag for today, I was wondering if anyone else feels as if they are constanting filling and emptying their gym bag... So after work, I have a scheduled spin session with a short run afterwards.... and then to a friends for grey's anatomy night. Here's what's in my gym bag today....
  • heart rate monitor and watch
  • ipod
  • two pairs of socks
  • underwear
  • three pairs of shoes ( 1 for cycling, 1 for running, and then tennis shoes for afterwards)
  • tank top
  • sports bra
  • shorts
  • a pair of jeans
  • a long sleeved shirt
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • shower gel
  • towel
  • mousse
  • headbands, bobby pins, and ponytails (can never have too many)
  • lock for locker
  • two packs of sports beans
  • water bottle
  • gatorade

I never use the gym, so I don't have anything packed. Sorry. I can't play.

yea.. this used to bug me forever. So now I have just this in my bag:
1. A shirt
2. Shorts
3. MasterLock

I wear my running shoes from home to work. I have a pair of work shoes there that I basically wear all day and then leave them there. So this way I don't have to carry any shoes. I hate hauling stuff around!

Mine is super simple:

Nothing :P

I don't go to the gym hehe

Allez said...

Lucky for me I don't get ready at the gym. All I ever bring is notepad (for weights) & ipod. Or if I'm swimming, my normal swim supplies. Plus spray leave-in pre-swim conditioner.

Danielle said...

Ah yeah, isn't the gym bag fun? Mine has my sports watch, my HRM (for when I do decide to use it some more), shorts, shoes, top, sports bra, pony holders, the typical stuff for showering and getting ready...I used to have a hairdryer and curling iron on occasion too. Oh, towel and lock too...Usually I don't get ready at the gym but when I do it takes a lot of stuff. Oh my MP3 player is in there too...and I'm going to start swimming soon and will be adding swim suit, goggles and maybe swim cap too...sigh...

Neese said...

I probably have the outfit I wore to work on Tuesday, since I had to change to run that afternoon.

P.O.M. said...

Crap. That's a lot of stuff. I don't have to get ready/shower at gym, so I just have the basics.

Well, I don't have a gym membership, which means that any runs over lunch I come back nice and stinky. Yay for my coworkers I'm sure!! In my bag today I have:
- sneaks
- capri pants
- tights
- long sleeve top
- short sleeve top
- L/S outerlayer
- underwear
- three pairs of socks
- Garmin
- deoderant

My gym bag is currently empty, since I haven't been to the Y since March. But once I do head back indoors, it'll just have the general stuff, since I hit the gym after work and shower at home.

Liz said...

HOw big is your bag?

I just have a towel, lock and MP3 player.

If I am showering, I will have a change of clothes, shampoo, conditioner and a brush. BUt that rarely happens.

IronGambit said...

wow... I have all of those EXACT items except for the ipod!

robtherunner said...

I am not sure about my gym bag, but getting ready for school the next day seems like a similarly daunting challenge at times. I keep most of those things pre-packed in my bag for when I want to run.

In response to your comment...

The spray in stuff I like is from Biolage. I got it at Trade Secret. Here's the info I got off the internet...
Biolage Protective Hair Oil
-Protects hair from sun, chlorine and salt water
-Prevents the drying effects of sun, chlorine and saltwater
-Leaves hair soft, shiny and tangle-free
-Adds instant softness, shine and moisturization
-Safe for color-treated hair

I don't know if you wear a swim cap, but that's pretty important to protect the hair. Otherwise, for hair care as long as I stick with high quality salon products, I haven't had a problem with my color turning funky from the chlorine. I don't even use the color protecting stuff, I get the moisturizing conditioners instead. I like the Biolage, Nexxus and Halo lines the best! Hope that helps :-)

"What's in your gym bag?"

Um. Which one?!?!?

LOL

J~mom said...

I have a teeny, tiny swim bag that I keep:

a) goggles
b) change to pay
c) inhaler
d) swim watch
e) swim cap

That is it. :>P

Joe said...

I'm constantly reconfiguring the contents of my bag depending on whether I'm swimming, running or coaching a soccer practice. When I go swimming, here's what's in my bag:
- Tyr jammer-style swim suit
- Speedo Hydrospex goggles
- Speedo Vanquisher goggles
- anti-fog solution
- eye drops
- two swim caps
- fins
- pull buoy
- socks to wear with fins to hold the fins on better
- flip flops
- soap
- Gatorade diluted with water, in a Nalgene bottle

6 out of 10 People in the US, Canada and Europe are Over weight, so losign weight has become the most important goal for many around the globe. If someone is a lazy slob who wants a 'magic pill' to give him a fabulous bpdy, that will always remain as a dream.
One should be willing and determined to in efforts over a period of time and only then they can get lasting results. I find a few programs quite interesting and effective, you can also check some programs here and rate them based on your experience.

According to E!, Megan Fox is “thisclose” to starring in Eminem’s new music video, “Love the Way You Lie,” which is a collaboration with Rihanna for those of you who don’t listen to Eminem. That’s pretty neat, I guess – I haven’t listened to Eminem since “Superman,” and I don’t care much for Rihanna – but guess who else is already going to be in the video? megan fox naked

Miley on the other hand, at least has a teeny tiny smidgen of talent and is somewhat not stupid. Her primary talent of course being pissing people off and making them go all crazy bitching about her. I find that kind of talent admirable in a person. This is also Sarah Palin’s primary talent. Which also acknowledge as impressive. megan fox naked videos
