What’s in my Gym Bag?

Many people are shocked to hear that I don’t plan my workouts ahead of time. Remember when ClassPass started limiting class reservations to four at a time? Yeah, I had no clue it happened because I wait until the last minute to book every class. I never know what kind of mood I’ll be in or what time I’ll need to leave the office, so around 3:00 every day, I start perusing to decide what sweat-scapade will have that night.

There are a few downsides to this. First off, since so many people do schedule ahead of time, it can be kind of difficult to get into a class last minute. The longer I wait, the more they fill up. It’s the worst feeling when I finally make a decision only to find out the class is now full!

It can also be a pain because of what’s required for each class. Barre requires sticky socks and longer leggings and I enjoy wearing baggy shirts and need tennis shoes for bootcamp. The worst is forgetting a pair of socks and then signing up for spin class!

For this reason, every morning I pack my bag full of anything I might need for the night’s workout. I’m not very high-maintenance so this is what I typically include:

  1. Sneakers
  2. Sticky socks for barre and Pilates
  3. Regular socks for spin or bootcamp
  4. Headphones in case I go on an outdoor run
  5. Sports bra
  6. Leggings
  7. Tank
  8. Propel to replenish electrolytes after class
  9. Dry shampoo

What do you keep in your gym bag?

I’ve always wanted to be an athlete. I’ve dreamed of running through a tunnel of high-fives. The crowd would be shouting my name. I would score the game-winning point. Daydreams…right? That’s not to say I didn’t play sports in school, but I was mediocre at best. Ever felt the same way? I think Nike can change that mentality. After training with them, now I am an athlete.

Back in April, Rachael and I were lucky enough to attend The Nike Training Club Tour event (which was partially sponsored by ClassPass this year!). We were absolutely spoiled. The weekly Nike Training Club events, maybe not on the same scale as their tour, are no exception in treating the attendees like rockstars.
