No matter how frequently you visit a gym we all know that a gym visit might never happen without a bunch of gym bag essentials - and new active wear threads to boot.
(Which is why if we forget our gym bag essentials, or don't have kick a$$ active wear it could actually be perfectly ok to skip a workout.)
Anyway since we mostly tend to go to the gym either to/from work, or even on our lunch breaks we don't want to carry too much. Just enough in case we need a quick shower, or to freshen up before leaving.
Which is why we've rounded up some of our current essentials to help you do just that. What are you carrying in your gym bags right now?
