What’s in My Gym Bag?

Sharing is caring!


Staying active has really changed my lifestyle for the better. It helps me relieve stress, boosts my energy, and I overall just feel good. I go to the gym on a regular basis now, so I make sure I am always on top of it and come with everything I need to have a good workout. When packing my gym bag, I try to ask myself a few things like “How can I make this the best workout ever?” and “Do I have time to shower at the gym?” and even “Is my period coming soon?”

So, what’s in my gym bag?

Today, I’ll share with you all what I keep in my gym bag and what kind of gym essentials I always have with me.

What’s in my gym bag?.. These 10 Must-Have Essentials

1. Water Bottle– A must have for any physical activity.

2. Towel– No one wants to sit in my sweat and I sure don’t want to sit on anyone else’s sweat.

3. Shower Carry-on Bag– I bring my carry-on bag on days I want to take a shower at the gym.

4. Smartphone with earphones – For listening to music when I’m running on the treadmill.

5. Body Wipes– The easiest way to clean up after a lunchtime workout.

6. Lock– I can’t carry my bag around with me so I bring I lock for the lockers.

7. Dry shampoo– I can’t leave home without it. I use this about 3-4 times a week for in between washes. 

8. Headband– It keeps my hair out of my face and it’s sweat wicking.

9. Perfume– I may get a bit smelly after a workout, so I need this!

10. Playtex® Sport® – My gym bag isn’t complete without keeping a tampon and/or pad (with sport level protection) inside especially now since Aunt Flo decided to pay a visit today. Her monthly visits still doesn’t stop me from being active and doing what I love. Thanks to Playtex® Sport®, I feel more confident and protected in my workout sessions.


I’m currently using Playtex® Sport® Combo Pack which provides two varieties of Sport Level Protection in one convenient package.  I like the ultra thin pads a lot because it has this Qwik-DryTM technology that wicks moisture away, keeping me dry and fresh and the tampons 360° tampon design comfortably fits my body and its every move.


Playtex® Sport® partnered with four one-of-a-kind female athletes to create a Ready, Set, Play On! video series. Together, these women who embody the Play On® spirit, shared their unique preparation rituals that motivate them to Play On®, even during their period, because feeling confident AND comfortable is so important while being active.

  1. I use a DivaCup now so I almost never use pads and tampons anymore, but it’s always good to keep a few around just in case. Or for when other ladies have an “emergency” and ask you for one!

  2. I have totally forgotten my water the last few times that I have gone! I do bring most of the rest of this! It is a great combo with this tampon. I use these all that time.

  3. I think that’s a great list of items. There are so many things we can put in our gym bags. It’s important to make sure to have all the right items too.

  4. These are great gym bag essentials. I will have to pick up some Body Wipes. They would make cleaning up a breeze when you do not have time for a shower after a quick workout.

  5. Ok so I wish I could show what was in my gym bag, but have to actually get a gym back first – lol! Looks like what I would have in my gym bag if I had one though. Thanks for sharing.
