What’s in My Gym Bag?! [Reebok Swag Bag Giveaway!]

September 15, 2014 | 1 Comment

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Last week was the first week back at work with the dance and gymnastics class session starting up. I’m teaching some new classes that have just been added this year – such as Ballet I, Tap/Jazz I, and Musical Theatre – and it has been very successful so far! 

Now that I’m able to finally have a more routine schedule, I’m going to have to better plan my meals and workouts. The salad jars work perfectly for lunch, but for dinner, I hate getting home at 7 or 8 o’clock and still having to cook! It keeps me up later, which makes it harder for me to get up at a decent hour to be productive. Keep an eye out for some more food prep posts in the future ;) 

Throughout my week, I wear many hats. I wear my fitness instructor hat, dance teacher hat, fitness nut hat, student hat, and more! Being a typical female, naturally I have to have a bag to match each of my I right? ;)

As a child, I’ve always been a ‘bag lady’. Tons of bags. Lots of junk. To this day, I remain the bag lady. I LOVE bags. I don’t go on a vacation without bringing at least one extra purse to match my other outfits. So, depending on which hat I’m wearing, I rotate between several different bags.

My first bag is my work bag – a pink Thirty-One bag with five outside pockets and one big middle compartment with a zipper.

The next bag is another Thirty-One bag, but this one is more of a convertible messenger bag of sorts. It has two front compartments, and a third compartment which can be accessed by opening the zipper located on the flap. (Secret pocket, woooo! It even confused TSA once :p )

The third bag is my gym bag for when I’m showering at the gym. It’s super big, and has a pocket in the front and a shoe compartment! I got it from NASM when I ordered my study materials and the Recertification for Life bundle. It’s that big blue one in the middle of the photo!

The fourth and newest bag is my Ogio gym bag! It is the perfect medium-sized gym bag to take to and from the gym, fitness classes, or to teach for CSS. I got it for a steal at the IDEA World Fitness Convention Expo last month.

In my gym bag, there are some essentials that I always have on me:

  1. Giro cycling shoes
  2. UA Armour39 Performance Monitor strap & module
  3. Headphones
  4. Armband for iPhone5
  5.  Sweat towel
  6. Deodorant
  7. Fitness notebook – contains all my bootcamp workouts and spin sets to teach
  8. Polar water bottle
  9. Gum
  10. Spray sunscreen 
  11. Face sunscreen stick
  12. Chapstick

It’s super important to have your gym bag ready to go with all your essentials. It gives you one less excuse to get moving!! I thought I’d share a little giveaway to help get you started if you haven’t already!
