EssentElle’s: The Gym Bag

So, I have a little project in mind which will be a collaboration with a good friend of mine. In order to do it though, I need a little help from you all…

I need to know about the gym bag you own…or the gym bag you would like to own! What do you carry in your gym bag?! 

Here’s what’s in mine right now…

I got the bag pictured as a prize in a Maxitone competition early last year. I love it because its compact, but has lots of space. It also has many different compartments where you can store things separately. My only bug bear with this bag at the moment is the fact that it doesn’t have a long strap so I’m unable to wear it cross body when cycling to the gym. I have to clip it down on the back and hope that a. it doesn’t fall off and b. the clip doesn’t damage anything in the bag! …So what’s good / not so good about your gym bag?! …what would you expect from a gym bag?! 

So, please leave me a comment below and let me know about your bag! Tell me anything…about the size, the colour, the shape, what you carry or even about your dream gym bag! 

Elle 🙂 x

    I use the shoulder bag I got from the NWM2012 – it has 2 front pockets to fit a shoe in each & the main compartment is huge lined with mesh.http://ntclove.blogspot.ca/2012/10/day-1-arrival-in-san-franciscowhat.html for picInside my gym bag you will find:hair ties bus/gym passwater bottletowelchap-stick2 in one shampoo/conditionersmall make-up bag w/o gear yoga strap for stretching and runners

    the only time I use my 'gym' bag is when I go to run club. In it will be my drink bottle, the kids medi bag (epi pen, asthma puff), my medi kit (bandaids, tape, pins etc), a change of shoes and I think that's it. Not really exciting
