5 Essentials to Pack in Your Gym Bag:


Have you ever driven all the way to the gym and realized you forgot your water bottle or a pair of earphones? Having a compiled list of essentials is the easiest way to avoid this from happening. Here are 5 of the most essential items to pack in your gym bag:

  1. Headphones

A good pair of headphones is absolutely essential when you are working out on your own in an open-gym area. Having your favorite tunes playing in the background makes getting through your workout that much more fun! We recommend wireless headphones; therefore wires wont get tangled and in your way.

  1. Water Bottle

Hydration is key when working out! Your body will not be able to perform at its maximum without proper water intake. Try a stainless steel water bottle to keep your water icy cold all day!

  1. Towel

Having a small towel in your gym bag can be very convenient, especially for those extra sweaty workouts! 

  1. Change of Clothes

If you’re coming straight from work, it is very important that you pack your workout gear! Here at Excel Body Fitness in Cary / Morrisville, we have locker rooms available for all members to change and shower if necessary. 

  1. Post-Workout Snack

After working hard in the gym, it is natural for you to feel hungry immediately after. Keeping a small snack, such as a protein bar, in your bag can be a life saver! However, if you forget to pack your snack, you can always buy one at the front desk. At Excel Body Fitness, our Co-Founder and Fitness Director, Carolee Poythress has a few good-for-you bars and protein shakes that she recommends.  Stop by the front desk to ask about them or talk to Carolee and she will give you more information!

Now grab your gym bag and load it up with these essentials to ensure you never miss something you may need! We have locker space available for purchase as well if you need to store your bag while you are working out.
