Gym Bag Essentials

The enduraLAB coaches often like to share their insight to great products designed to make your fitness journey a success. This month, we wanted to share our favorite handy gym essentials: everything from face wash to a lifting belt. We believe it’s the details that can make all the difference when working out.

As it stands, your gym bag likely already includes the basics: sneakers, athletic shorts or tights and Bluetooth earbuds. Below are a dozen or so additional things that will prepare you for both the expected and unexpected.

  • Fitness tracking device such as an Apple Watch or Garmin
  • Reusable water bottle (dishwasher safe)
  • Small towel
  • An extra enduraLAB tee or tank
  • Soothing muscle rub (Coach Lee recommends Dr. Bronner)
  • SFH Push
  • SFH Whey protein
  • enduraLAB BlenderBottle
  • First aid kit
  • Extra pair of athletic socks
  • Lacrosse ball for mobility and recovery
  • Logbook

We also gathered a few no-brainers for your bag, which means they are the easiest items to forget to pack. These include: deodorant, 2-in-1 soap, face wash, chap stick and lotion.

Planning to lift heavy? Coach Staci recommends Nike Lifters, Exo Knee Sleeves and a lift belt.

If you still need to buy a bag, Coach Lee suggests the UnderArmour CORDURA® Range Duffle. This bag does it all with a laptop sleeve, shoe compartment and plenty of pockets for your gym essentials. There’s also room to toss in a jump rope and Rogue Monster Bands for the perfect on-the-go workout. Plus it’s versatile, so it can be carried like a traditional duffel or a backpack.
