I used to go to the gym at night, after work. It would be about midnight or so, and I would meet my friends there. I worked my mouth chatting more than I worked my body on the machines, but still, at least I was there. Pete used to be completely different. He used to go first thing in the morning, before work. He would then shower at the gym. Of course, we had to pack very different gym bags.

If you’re one of the shower-at-the-gym people, this what to pack in your gym bag list is for you.

What To Pack In Your Gym Bag

Shampoo and conditioner.
After working out, you definitely want to wash your hair, especially if you’re heading to work after. Pack a bottle of shampoo and conditioner in your gym bag. Personally, I would pack a pair that you got a good deal on. That way, if you accidentally leave it behind, you won’t feel too bad.

Speaking of deals, there are a few deals on Suave hair care products at CVS. From now until July 1, save $2.00 on any TWO (2) Suave Professionals® Gold Hair Care or Dry Shampoo products (excludes 3 oz. trail and travel sizes).

Soap.
Of course, you’ll need soap to wash your body. Personally, I like body wash, but packing three large bottles will make your gym bag really heavy. So, either take your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash and put it in three small trial-size containers, or pack bar soap since it’s lighter.

Wash cloth.
You’ll need a wash cloth for your shower. Don’t pack your favorite one, just in case it gets left behind. 

Bath towel.
Just like your wash cloth, don’t pack a great bath towel. Pack one that will dry you completely, of course, but not one of your favorite towels. 

Flip flops.
Gym showers are cleaned by the staff, but any time there’s a public shower, I always wear flip flops in it. You don’t want to worry about athlete’s foot.

Change of clothes.
If you’re heading to work after, you’ll want to pack your work clothes. If you’re headed out for the day, just pack a regular outfit. But whatever you do, the last thing you want is to change into your sweaty gym clothes.

What else do you pack in your gym bag?
