Finding you always forget the small but important things at the gym? Not to worry - we've rounded up our essential gym bag essentials - to make your workouts more efficient.
1. Gym Towel
A towel is essential for wiping down equipment after use, and of course, cooling yourself off!
2. Spare Socks
Ever been at work, planning on going to the gym and realising you've left your socks at home? It's good to have backups in situations like these, so you don't have to skip your workout! (Even though you may have wanted the excuse).
No more leaky bottles ruining your gym kit with this leakproof water bottle, just throw it in your bag and go!
Give yourself a quick spritz after your workout with this Victorias Secret body spray; we love this scent in particular - fragranced with cherry blossom and peach, it smells fresh and fruity.
Smash your workout with your favourite playlists. These wireless headphones feature Bluetooth connectivity, so you're not tied to your phone while working out! They also come with their own carry case, and fold up neatly, taking up minimal space in your bag.
No time to shower? Clinique has you covered with these face and body cleansing wipes, just a quick swipe and you're good to go! Perfect for a lunchtime workout session.
Keep warm after your workout with this comfy Zip Up Hoodie. Featuring a warm fleece lined inner, and zip up detailing this will keep you cosy on your way to and from the gym.
No one needs the hassle of their face wash exploding in their gym bag; instead, try this stick cleanser by Cosmetea, just swipe over your face, rise and go.
Perfect for transporting to and from the gym, when you want to take a shower, is this no mess, no fuss, soap bar from Lush - featuring Vanilla Absolute. You'll be the best smelling person in the gym!
Gym hair don't care! Keep greasy locks at bay with this dry shampoo, specially formulated to prevent white residue, perfect for blondes and brunettes alike.
Keep this handy mini razor in your bag for those "forgot to shave" moments!
12. Flip Flops
No one wants to go barefoot in the gym showers - think of the germs! Protect your feet with some affordable flip flops.
13. Hand Sanitiser
Following on from the germ theme, hand sanitiser is always a good thing to have on hand - especially this one as it features a handy clip so you can clip it on your bag. It also smells like iced doughnuts - yum.
