I’m somebody who likes to pack for any kind of situation so my gym bag is usually filled with my favourite goodies made up of fitness, beauty, skincare and wellbeing products. There’s nothing worse than getting to the gym and realizing that I forgot to pack my headphones or deodorant. Who else can’t workout without listening to music? The struggle is real. That’s why it’s important to have gym bag essentials ready. I thought I’d share with you what’s in my gym bag, let’s have a sneak peak inside…
