We’ve all been there. You’ve motivated yourself to go to the gym. You feel energised, fantastic and ready for your workout. Then you realise you’ve forgotten your leggings, your shampoo, or something equally essential that you know will leave you sweaty and uncomfortable for the rest of the day.
Lucky for you, we have the essential list when it comes to gym bags. We're here to help you organise your life (and your bag), so you're always prepared to hit the gym!
Always keep a little spare cash on you when going to the gym
In a society that's pushing towards being cash-free, it's surprising how helpful it can be to have a little spare change when at the gym. From lockers to vending machines, there are still places that rely on you having a trusty £1 coin in your pocket.
It’s always better to be prepared, so keep a special ‘gym wallet’ in your bag. That way, even if you forget your wallet you will always have a backup. Keep your membership card, a couple of pounds and any other important gym documents handy, and de-clutter your day-to-day wallet in the process.
Our Circle Purses are the perfect option as they have card pockets and space for loose change. Even better, they have a waterproof zip closure, perfect for humid changing room environments.
Step up your after-sweat routine with travel bottles and travel pots
Let’s face it. The shampoo/body wash 3-in-1 you can find at the gym is not going to be doing wonders for your hair and skin. However, you’re not going to want to bring everything from your shower routine with you.
Avoid leaks, breakouts and damaged hair by bringing your own shampoo, conditioner and body wash with you in travel bottles. OurTravel Bottle Trio comes in three colours with dots on the lids so you can easily determine your shampoo from your body wash. We also havetravel pots that are perfect for keeping your favourite moisturiser safe with a wide bottle mouth that is perfect for easy refill.
Keep it all safe and organised in aclear pouch so you don’t end up with product all over your kit, and if you really want to treat yourself, splash out and get some ‘gym only’ products that will add a little extra luxury to the communal showers. You’ll deserve it after how hard you’ve worked!
Don’t forget to bring your La Pochette sweat bag
Gone are the days of bringing your kit with you in a crumpled Sainsbury’s bag.
Intelligently designed, stylish and functional, ourSweat Bags are a must-have for anyone who wants to streamline their commute and organise their life.
The antibacterial protection stops you from ruining your gym kit and it’s deodorising so there’s no need to worry about smelling at work. Pop it into your gym bag and forget about it until evening.
If you’re a swimmer, or just want to be extra organised, ourWet Bags are also perfect for keeping towels and wet swimming costumes in. Not just for the gym, they’re perfect for travel and the beach!
Make a spare gym kit just in case
For those who tend to forget about their dirty workout gear, it may be a good idea to create a spare gym kit. Nothing is more de-motivating than realising your kit is dirty and you don’t have time to run around the house looking for clean leggings.
Your spare kit doesn’t have to contain the best of the best, just enough that you can grab it and go without having to rummage around looking for alternatives.
If you’re looking to organise your life, there is nowhere better than La Pochette. With innovative designs created with you in mind, whatever your day holds you can be prepared and find the balance you truly deserve in life.
