My Favorite Gym Essentials

I have found that if I can make things as easy on myself as possible, I’m more likely to go to the gym.

I mean, that’s true with most things, right? Remove the obstacles and it’s easier to do anything!

So here are some things that I have gotten recently that make a trip to the gym more enjoyable – and several of these things can be purchased in your favorite colors!

items to take to the gym

I’ve discovered that I actually like showering at the gym – and these items make it a breeze. Let’s take a look at my “What should I take to the gym” list.

Suction hooks – I can hang my toiletry bag, my clothes, a towel – just aim the shower water away from them!

Hanging toiletry bag – I definitely want to use my own soap and shampoo – not whatever might by in the gym dispenser.

Quick dry microfiber towel – it takes up hardly any room in my gym bag.

Shower sandals – you know why 🙂 and I like that these have holes in the bottom.

Gym bag with a shoe compartment – for stashing those shower sandals! The exact kind I have isn’t available any more – but they’re all pretty similar. Just make sure you check the size in case you want to fit a yoga mat or long foam roller inside.

My own foam roller – I really like these for massaging my legs after squats.

Mesh laundry bags – so convenient for containing, and separating, dirty and clean clothes.

Dry shampoo for dark hair – I don’t need to be adding any extra white to my roots thankyouverymuch.

So probably nothing there really surprises anyone – except for maybe the shower hooks 🙂 Then you’ve also got things like water bottle, ear buds, small towel. But there’s a good chance you have something there you like already.

Do you have anything you’d like to recommend to me? Something that’s in your gym bag that helps motivate you to go? I’d love to hear about it!
