Workout Essentials | What's In My Gym Bag?

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a peek into my gym bag, filled with all my workout essentials :)

My Gym Essentials:

1. Aer Duffel Pack work/gym bag (courtesy of Aer - see my recent review of this bag here). If you're interested, you still have until 7/15 to take $10 off your order with code 'THECHICDIARY' :)
2. Work laptop - 13 inch MacBook Pro
3. Master Lock 3-dial combo padlock
4. Under Armour women's shower flip flops

5. Power Crunch protein energy bar. Pre-workout tip: you should always eat some time before working out, so your body has enough sugar to expend energy. Otherwise, your muscles will start to deteriorate as your body looks to converting your muscle tissue into energy! (Jillian Michaels).
6. iPhone 6 for my Spotify music and these gorgeous white gold earbuds to listen with :)

7. VSX Sport Fanny Pack - to carry my iPhone and other small items.
8. Misslo Portable Waterproof Travel Bags. These bags are the best! I keep my work/gym shoes in one, shower flip flops in another, and post-workout gym clothes in another.
9. Workout Outfit (Old Navy Go-Dry Compression Pants, Everlast Sports Tank, Victoria's Secret Sports Bra). See the 'Mentioned/Similar Products Below' section at the bottom of this post for some of my workout outfit picks!
10. Polar Bottle Sport Water Bottle
11. DryBar 'Full Pint' Medium Round Brush
12. Makeup/toiletry bag by ReVive Skincare (I may do a 'What's in My Makeup Bag' post sometime in the future :)
13. Fit Four Neo-Grip Callus Guard Work Out Gloves
14. T3 Micro SinglePass Compact Iron
15. Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit sneakers (mint).

Below are some additional items you may want to bring, in case your gym doesn't provide them:

1. Deodorant spray
2. Shampoo, body wash, conditioner, and lotion (if you plan on showering at the gym)
3. Blow dryer
4. Hair and body towel
5. Cotton swabs

I have a very special giveaway coming up next week in celebration of my blog's 1 year anniversary, so be sure to stay tuned! Thanks for visiting!
