A bag for everything and everything in its place

These are the “bags” I’ve put together to help me get out the door to the gym faster while not forgetting anything essential. (Now if I can just remember to take the bag…)

Swimming Bag

  • Swim goggles (I have prescription ones – makes a huge difference)
  • Swim cap
  • Nose clip (I hate getting water up my nose)
  • Towel
  • Swimsuit
  • Flipflops
  • Lock and key for the locker
  • Labrada Rock n Roll bar for post workout nutrition (I cut it into 4 pieces)

Weight Lifting and Kickboxing Bag

  • Hand towel
  • Workout gloves
  • kickboxing gloves
  • Hand wraps
  • Labrada Rock n Roll bar for post workout nutrition (I cut it into 4 pieces)

Running Bag

I don’t always take a bag when I run, but it is nice to have everything gathered so I don’t get 1/4 mile away and realize I forgot something:

  • Running shoes
  • Heart Rate monitor (I use a garmin 305 and keep it plugged in because it drains fast)
  • Chest strap for the heart rate monitor
  • Nathan labs water bottle (has insulation and a gripping handle)
  • MP3 player (and a spare battery)
  • Headphones
  • Headband (keeps the headphones in and the sweat out of my eyes)
  • Chapstick
  • Sunscreen stick

Biking Bag

My bike bag is attached to my bike so I leave it packed at all times:

  • Spare tire
  • CO2 cartridges
  • Sunscreen stick
  • Chapstick
  • Bike lock and chain
  • Labrada Rock n Roll bar (cut it into 4 pieces)
  • Bike water bottle
  • Sunglasses
  • Take look mirror (hooks on my glasses temple)
  • Helmet
  • Padded bike shorts

Then all I have to do is get dressed and refill my water bottle and I can run out the door.

Work Clothes Bag

On days when I walk or bike to work, I need to shower and change at work:

  • Shampoo
  • Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Towel
  • Comb
  • Lotion
  • Underwear
  • Clothes
  • Work Shoes
