I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for awhile now, but now is more of an appropriate time than ever to be talking about my gym bag essentials. I’m convinced that I’ll be a pro-nomad by the end of the summer, with my long commutes and crashing on my friend’s and family’s couches. LOL, if you guys are reading this, I love you guys and thank you for opening up your home to me!
I actually got this blog post idea from my manager at Xsport, shoutout to Hannah Burke. As my New Years Resolution, I promised that I would consistent with my life in terms of heath and wellness. Working for Xsport helped me realized this, and the people that I have been surrounding myself with have helped pushed me to become a better version of myself I have met some of my favorite people at this company!
My friend/trainer, Thomas Wellington, has kicked my butt with HIIT workout classes and his program that he created for me. I also wouldn’t have been able to be as consistent with my workout schedule if it wasn’t for my accountability and workout buddy, Esther Onate! My post-graduation work life has been a little hectic. I have been working long days, so I have to get back in the swing of things and set time aside to workout. But shoutout to all of you for helping me work towards my fitness goals.
With that being said, I will be driving around A LOT this summer to work towards these goals and will most likely be living out of my gym bag and my car. There are a handful amount of things that I absolutely cannot leave the house without. Click on the links to shop similar styles below!
I am obsessed with my workout/weekender bag. Shoutout to my girl, Lauren Nieves, for getting me one of my favorite birthday presents ever! I don’t know how I lived without this Calpak in my life, but it is the perfect size and has made my life so much easier. I literally fits everything I own. My top ten needs include: the perfect size gym bag, cosmetic/toiletries bag, water bottle, foam roller, resistance bands, face masks, deodorant, dry shampoo, makeup wipes, travel sized toiletries, etc. Whatever you could think of, I probably have it. Chances are, it’s probably stuffed to to the brim of my bag. 😂
