What's in my gym bag

Hey Babes! I just got this gorgeous new gym bag from VOORAY and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you exactly what I bring with me when I go to the gym. My old gym bag was pretty sad...It was a free gift backpack that I got from Victorias Secret. It was too small for all my stuff and I definitely needed a replacement! I choose this one because I how large it is, the beautiful print, and the cool side straps that will hold a yoga mat, towel, or any other bulky items that won't fit in your bag.



How cool is that feature!!! I am using the straps to carry my barbell pad. This is something I don't go to the gym without. I use it primarily on leg day when Im using the smith machine and barbells. It protects your neck and makes doing heavy weighted squats, lunges, hip thrusts etc sooooo much more comfortable on your body. My gym actually has a barbell pad but it is sooooo disgusting, dirty, and stinky that I would never actually use it!I also linked my favorite water bottles below. I love that they don't leak, and you can squeeze that water right into your mouth without opening a lid or flipping a cap;)

     



Padded and faux fur lined Media Pocket to protect your phone, iPod, or other essentials. This is where I keep my Powerbeats3 so I never forget them at home! Because lets be honest...working out with out music sucks! I really love the Powerbeats because they have incredible sound, they stay on my ears, and they have a battery life of 10 hours! 





I typically wear my Shoes into the gym back its so nice to have a place to put my shoes when I'm done at the gym. The floors are gross and I don't want all those germs on the inside of my bag. My favorite shoes are the Adidas Pure Boosts! I have them in multiple colors and have been wearing this style for almost a year now. They have held up great and surprising the white cleans up really easy in the wash machine. 



The inside of the bag is super spacious and has enough room for everything I need in the gym as well as my outfit I change into after I finish working out. It also comes with an odor proof bag that I can put all my sweaty gross clothes in so they are stinking up my bag and everything else in it.

These are the things I have in my bag at all times. I always use my own foam roller because the one at the gym is gross and not firm enough for me. I also like to bring my own jump rope that I custom cut to my size. Ive been using rogue for years and they never fail me. I also my loop bands, a resistance band with handles, and my fit girl ankle strap. I use the loop bands for glue engaging exercises and the resistance band for arm toning exercises and to warm up for arm day. The ankle strap isn't that necessary but its super nice to have your own especially if your gym doesn't have one. It makes engaging your muscles so much easier than if your trying to loop your foot into one of the cable machine handles. 

     

I also have my make up bag in my gym bag because most mornings I'm getting dressed and ready at the gym. I usually just bring very basic makeup to keep my routine quick and easy. I like to get in and out of the gym as fast as possible. Having a "no-fuss" routine makes this possible. Ive been using NARS tinted moisturizer for a while now and it gives great coverage without feeling cakey and also has spa 20;) NYX matte bronzer is an all time fave that I've been wearing for years. I have to fill my brows in and I love this product by NYX for a super natural look. Also pictured is a new mascara that I'm trying since getting my false eyelashes taken off and my travel sized hairbrush.

  8. I love this bag!! Currently I have an Adidas bag that isn't very pretty, and the shoulder strap squeaks! I carry gym shoes, shower shoes, a sweat towel, my gym clothes, socks, blow dryer, make-up, SquareOrganics bar, my Polka Audio bit, headphones, cell phone foam roller, shower gear, and I have a small space for my keys and credit/ID cards. I'm sure I'm forgetting something! @marcias_fitstagram

  9. We have the same ankle strap! That's a must for my gym bag, as well as my unscented makeup wipes bc I work out right after I get off work so I need to take it all off ���� I also bring flip flops for afterwards bc who wants to put sneakers back on?!

  11. Love this cute gym bag!
    In my gym bag I keep my 40oz hydroflask that I love, it has a straw and flip waterbottle top so I don't have to turn it up! I always have my yoga mat with me for yoga class, or for stretching since I agree the mats at the gym are so gross! Always have my wireless headphones and iPhone. I also keep a fitness heart monitor in my bag. Typically have my gym clothes, shoes, makeup bag, and dry shampoo since I hit the gym right after class on campus!

  12. Woohoo! What a coincidence. I bought a vooray this evening - I got the Zen as an alternative smaller gum bag / purse. Love the one you have too! What you can always find in my bag:

    - flip flops for showering at the gym (that's why I love the shoe pocket too)
    - my dopkit that opens and hangs and holds all my stuff for getting ready at the gym
    - workout clothes and/or clothes for after
    - 2 sets of headphone (1 with aux if I want to watch the gym tv on the treadmill or stairmaster and my regular wireless jaybirds)
    - extra clear plastic bags for throwing sweaty clothes
    - pins, tape, hair ties, lotion --anything random I might need!

    In the summer when I do rooftop workouts at my gym, I also bring some weights, strength bands and my yoga mat. Thanks for sharing lexie!!

  13. Love how cute and functional this gym bag seems!! I've been looking for the perfect bag for quite some time because as of now, my bag barely fits everything I need to take with me. I usually just take the basics - my outfit, shoes, sweat towel, and water bottle. If I had a better bag, I'd be able to clean up at the gym and head to social events without having to go home every time! Thanks for sharing this bag, Lexie!

  14. I always keep an extra pair of socks in my gym bag. I don't know why but for some reason this is the one item I think I've packed but actually haven't. So, I stash away an extra pair since working out without socks is the worst. Love this pretty gym bag! @hay_girl_haaay

  15. LOVE that you keep makeup in it! I also do the same. I make sure I have my powder, mascara, dry shampoo all ready to freshen up after the gym. My bag is filled with hair ties, bobby pins, and clips. I also bring a small hand towel, water bottle of course, and a change of tank top so I can get extra sweaty. Thanks for the post! Great ideas!

  17. Currently on have a gym backpack and it's packed! I workout before work, so I always have work clothes, gym shoes, shower stuff, brush, makeup, towel blow dryer & straightener, smooth infusion hair product, protein, headphones & anything else that sneaks in my bag! Wayyy too full for a backpack, looks like I need to upgrade. 😊 - IG handle @anniegullickson

  18. My current gym bag is stuffed! It's so small and sometimes won't even hold my shoes. I usually workout after work, so I change at the gym. If I change at the office, I'll feel so comfy and go straight home! So I usually have my workout clothes, gym shoes, SEVERAL pairs of socks (because I love to forget socks), towel, makeup removers, headphones, and armband for my phone. As well as anything else I can squeeze in there! I definitely need an up grade and I'm in love with this bag! 😊 IG handle: @rachelproctor_

  20. I JUST looked at this exact bag from Vooray, but unfortunately I'm gonna have to wait, I don't have the money right now since I'm looking for a job at the moment and can't spend money on things like this right now🙄

    I always have my Nike shoes, resistance bands, water bottle, BCAA shake, Womens Best shake, Sudio Regent headphones and polar watch in my gym bag❤️

  25. Love this bag!! I definitely would love to have one similar because my is an old, small jaw string under amour bag. It gets the job done, but I wish it was bigger and had more compartments. I always make sure to bring my wireless jaybird X2 headphones, both pairs of tennis shoes (one pair for lifting and one for cardio), my yoga mat, foam rolling stick, jump rope, and an extra pair of socks for emergencies!

  27. This is THEE BEST gym bag I have ever seen. I usually have 2 bags that I bring with because one is never enough. I carry my headphones, phone-band to hold the phone, skipping rope, gym towel, giant water bottle, protein shake bottle, towel for showering, toiletries, make up, brush, clean set of clothes, my dinner (I have lectures in the evening so I go to gym before), and perfume. I'll have two bags so I can put the gym clothes and used towels in one and keep the clean clothes and bag clean!!:) This bag would change so much! And plus, it's beautiful. @burpeesandpb

  28. That bag is too cute! I carry various straps with me, including a hip circle (must have). Other than that, I carry an ankle strap, gallon of water, headphones and chap stick. Hope I win ;) thanks for the awesome giveaway @acleanfitlifestyle

  30. Love this bag!! I've been wanting a Vooray bag for a while, but I keep saying I don't need to spend money on that. Instead, I use a large purse (gross, right?!). I keep shoes, socks, leggings, a sports bra & tank, my headphones, and a snack in case I need some extra fuel. Great post Lexie! Keep it up!!

  31. I looooove this gym bag! I am always trying to make sure everything I purchase has at least two different uses or ways to function and this could easily be a weekend bag as well as a gym bag. I keep deodorant, extra clothes, water bottle, chopstick, moisturizer and dry shampoo in mine. Great post!

  32. This is such a great bag! The strap on my bag finally gave out last week lol apparently walking to the park with 24lbs of weight in it was a bad idea! Would love this one but it looks like it's sold out on the website!! I keep light makeup, deodorant, dry shampoo, a small towel, spare socks and my runners in my bag all the time!

  33. I've been eyeing this bag because I'm in love with the shoe compartment! I actually hit the gym & go to work or out, so I have shower slippers & bring my hairdryer �� A water bottle is a MUST! But I love that you can put your yoga mat on the side of the bag! So versatile! @kuhzican
