Gym Bag Essentials


A good workout starts with having the right shoes. The type of workout you plan to do will determine the kind of shoes you should keep on-hand. For activities such as weight lifting, a light shoe is recommended, especially if you’ve spent most of your day wearing dress shoes or high heels. A shoe that is flat and has light padding will be ideal in order to help you with balance and strength.

Comfortable Socks

In addition to having the right shoes in your gym bag, you should have one or two good pairs of socks in your bag at all times. Socks that have arch support can be especially beneficial for added comfort during your workout. You’ll also want to ensure your socks are breathable and will absorb sweat easily so your feet don’t get too hot.

A Much Needed Sports Bra

Let’s face it, working out without a sports bra isn’t even an option. Keeping a few sports bras in your gym bag will guarantee that you’ll be ready to workout no matter what. Our women’s sports bras are both stylish and supportive. Be sure to check out our cute sports bras in addition to our compression workout clothes.

A Stylish Headband

Headbands are a great way to ensure hair will be kept out of your face, and sweat won’t get into your eyes. Plus, headbands are pretty popular right now, making it easy to find cute and colorful headbands that can match every workout outfit you own. Look for a headband that absorbs moisture and be sure to check that it stays in place before beginning your workout.

A Hand Towel

For areas such as the back of the neck or your chest, having a hand towel handy can be a lifesaver. If your workout is going to include a yoga mat, keeping a hand towel nearby will be helpful in making sure that your mat doesn’t get slippery.
