Don’t you hate those days when you try and squeeze in a work out only to rush to the shower and realize you forgot some VERY essential items. Here is my list for top five gym bag essentials:

  • The Evolution No Slip Grip Gel Hair Ties: Black (a #musthave obviously)
  • LnA ‘Fallon’ Tank Top:
    • Tip: On the list is a tank top. A tank top? Let me explain – I made a rookie mistake this winter and bought my outfit to change into after my shower. Being winter I brought my go to J.Crew Relaxed Wool Turtleneck and we can all guess what happened next… So hot in the gym especially with all that heat from the showers and all I had was the turtleneck! I thought I was going to die!!  So now I bring a tank top to put on while I am drying my hair, etc. so there is no need for a second shower!! But of course tank top has to have a little edge to it.

 

  • thinkThin High Protein Bars:
    • Tip: Peanut Butter is my fave but they come in all kinds of flavors. With the protein you’re packing away all the muscle just earned at the gym and staving off hunger the healthy way
  • Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick: Ylang-Ylang + Calendula: because you should smell as good as you feel after the gym
  • Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream:
    • “Beyond BB Cream, this 12-in-1 multi-tasking CC cream (color correcting) delivers the ultimate in age defying, skin perfecting results. Available in five shades to match and enhance any skin type and color.” And everyone needs a little SPF!
  • Mio Skincare – Gym Kit:
    • “The ‘Clean SlateTM’ wipes are perfect for removing makeup and sweat, while the label’s invigorating gel soothes aching muscles. The handy neon pouch will be easy to find at the bottom of your gym bag. – Softly scented with Mint and Cucumber and infused with moisturizing Aloe Vera and Omega Oils..”
