There’s few things worse than either getting to the gym and realizing you’ve forgotten something that would prevent you from working out or not being prepared to get ready to leave. Make sure your gym bag is packed full and ready for yoga, crossfit, and everything in between.

A water bottle

It’s important to stay hydrated while working out. Opt for one that keeps your water cold like this one

Makeup wipesIf you go to the gym after school or work, these are necessary to keep breakouts from happening. 

Extra socksAthletic socks are the way to go for a better workout. They’re often cushioned and created to work against sweat like these. 

A change of clothesIf you choose to workout before work, or have some errands to run afterward, it’s nice to have a change of clothes ready to take on the rest of the day.

Extra hair tiesYou never know when you’re going to forget a hair tie or run into someone else who needs one. Opt for some that don’t leave creases like these.

Small toiletriesThese are important to keep in your bag when you workout before going elsewhere so you can get ready without hauling around full-sized products. Check out a convenience pack like this one

Tennis shoesTennis shoes may be the most essential part of a workout. Go to a sporting goods store in order to find the perfect ones for your body and workout. You won’t regret it. 

Pack your gym bag, grab your workout partner, and hit the gym. You’re ready to go!
