5 gym bag essentials

By  | 

I know that everyone doesn’t love the gym as much as I do. But believe me, gym life is easier when you have the right equipment. Check out my 5 favourite gym bag essentials that will have you covered for anything.


My 321 filtered water bottle is a must-have essential that removes impurities and contaminants that we normally consume from tap unfiltered water. This water bottle is beautifully designed to be light weight and the filter can be used time and time again in fact up to 55 plunges. A real cost effective gym essential that saves the need to buy bottled water.

A great tool to use to self massage and release adhesions in the muscles and connective tissue. After an intense workout I love to foam roll my whole body well for at least 20 minutes to increase blood flow to my muscles and create better mobility and aid in recovery to preform better.

This product is an amazing sweat resistant deoderant that contains a lovely soft lemon myrtle scent that last’s on me all day! Formulated to be water resistant, bicarb free, anti bacterial and provides me long lasting protection. No Pong deodorant is an all natural, aluminium and paraben free unisex anti-deodorant that is effective and affordable.

Durability is a must for gym headphones to withstand my sweaty training sessions without packing up. My plantronics backbeat fit 505 wireless headphones provide me up to 18 hours of wireless listening time and are super comfy especially when I’m running long distances.

Using a workout towel is an important part of proper gym etiquette. It’s the worse feeling to use a machine, only to find it covered in sweat from the previous individual. I always have my favourite quick-drying towel with me when training to keep my face, eyes and forehead feeling clean and dry.
