What every fit chick needs in her gym bag
Benjamin Franklin was a pretty smart guy, and I have to agree with him that, indeed, "If you fail to plan, you're planning to fail," which is exactly why the most dedicated fit chicks always have a gym bag stocked and ready to go. It's a whole lot harder to make excuses to skip a workout if you always have everything you need in a bag at your side.
The trick, of course, is knowing exactly what to pack. Some of the basics should be fairly obvious — shoes, hair ties, deodorant, and a sports bra — but if that's all you keep in your bag, you're probably going to be disappointed. As an exercise physiologist and exercise science faculty member, my life (literally) revolves around fitness, so I'd like to think I've honed the skill of packing my gym bag down to a science. While everyone's needs are a little bit different, let this list be your jumping off point to the perfectly stocked gym bag.
