As a first responder and a fit mom on the go, we don’t have a steady 9-5 schedule. Therefore if you can time for a workout or gym and are prepared at all times. On a daily basis, I have twenty million things running through my head, I’m notorious for forgetting something. That’s why I compiled a list, Gym Bag Must Have For Busy Moms on the Go. Trust me if you forget any of your workout gear it easily kills your motivation to workout.
I’ve been guilty of that, and it just kills my gym routine. I check my bag the day before to make sure I have all I need, in case I have to add and replace toiletries. I hope I can make make life a bit easier and help your workout routine.
I use two different kinds of Gym Bags. In the winter time, I use the Adidas women gym bag and in the summer the Fitmark Transporter. I purchase the Adidas Women Gym Bag, at the Sports Authority when they were still in business and I have to say this is the BEST gym bag I ever owned. And ladies when it comes to any BAGS I’m extremely picky. If the bag is not the right fit or comfort for what I will be utilizing it for, I don’t bother. So when I find the perfect bag and fit, I’m in heaven. What I love about this bag on the side it has an extendable area to put your gym shoes and sweaty clothes, but I used that compartment to put my sneakers and shower slippers. It has side pockets and plenty of room for your toiletries and accessories. I love this bag and I’ve been using this bag for two years and it still in great condition.
The Fitmark Transporter bag is another favorite of mines. It’s a 3-1 go-to bag. Gym Bag, Travel Bag, and Meal Bag. It includes a removable meal prep bag and two oversize containers, 2 ice packs. The containers are BPA Free, microwave and dishwasher safe.
This bag is perfect for Gym and traveling
The quality is great and durable and there’s a lot of space to fit extra things. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs to carry less minimum stuff at once. This bag serves as a way to carry food, clothes and personal products without carrying so many bags at once.
Workout Gear-Sneakers, Pants and Sport Bra
I’ve tried out sooo many brands of sneakers and I vary from Reebok to adidas. They are comfortable to workout in the gym and especially run. We all know if we don’t have a good pair of running sneakers our workout will not be that great.
I learned the hard way how important it is to have good comfortable running sneakers and even to be able to work out comfortably. So I highly recommend looking into Reebok’s sneakers. As for sports Bras, I have to use well-supported bras that snug my tatas. And workout pants I vary but because I’m very curvy with big booty I have to make sure I buy pants that are very supportive, tight that they move with my body especially on the Booty. I hate pants that if I squat they are not tight, I’ll be flashing everyone. Ladies it has happened and that’s one thing that it has killed my motivation.

I saw these bottles in a blog Post I stumbled on, I fell in love and started researching where to buy the bottle because I wanted one. I ordered it and Omg, I love it, it definitely helps me track my water intake in which I literally sucked on. No matter how my day entitles to, my water bottle reminds me when it’s time to drink water and each bottle comes it an inspiring quote, love it. If you like to infuse your water, Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
Protein Shaker Bottle
I have a collection of blender bottles, I change them every other month. Two of my favorites shakers are, Blender Bottle Pro Stack System and the Perfect Shaker Hero Series, I use one or the other and I keep in my Gym bag. The Blender Bottle Pro stack I like because the compartments it comes with. I need to take certain supplements separately and this allows me to do so, and I can also put my Pills inside. It’s very convenient especially when you are on the go.
I’m obsessed with these little containers. When it comes to containers I’m just so addicted because I love to have all my daily essentials organized. And the Blender Stackers do just that, you can store anything from protein powder to your Daly pills, chia seeds etc. These are great to have and the cool thing about it you can attach them To your blender shakers.
Did I mentioned I’m and germaphobic, yeah that means there’s noooo way I’m going to walk barefoot on any Gym shower or Locker room shower 🤢🤮 yuck. With all kinds of nasty bacteria going around, make sure you wear shower slippers. I got these from a friend recommendation and I love them. They protect my feet from any Bacteria lingering on the shower floor and they are non-slip.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shower cap. My hair and humidity don’t get along and with the regular plastic shower cap, my hair will get so damp. I would have to use a hair dryer to get the frizz out. What I love about this shower cap the inside is made of terry material ( like a soft towel ) and it prevents hair from getting damp.
These are amazing and I love Bose. My husband gave me this pair of headphone as a gift and I have no complaint. I love their noise cancelation abilities. I don’t like to be bothered when I’m working out. But you might be bumped into that person and all they want to do is chit-chat. That will drive me insane because at times I will workout during my meal time when I’m pressed for time.
I used a few waist trainer belts, but after using them so much they get work out. I needed a new one and I stumbled upon this one on Amazon, decided to try it. I’m impressed, I love that it provides support in the lower back and improves posture while doing certain exercises in which you have to have a back straight and shoulders back.
I don’t leave these behinds and they are always in my gym bag. There are time I can’t workout in the gym at work or outside of work, if I want a quick workout adding resistance I used these.
I wanted a small makeup bag just for my gym bag. This case is perfect, I love that this bag zippers shut and it has different sections. There is a section for brushes, and I put my mascara and liners in the one zippered area and my make up palette and foundation in the other.
