Back to gym: 6 things to pack in your gym bag in 2020

The festive feasts are behind you, and now it’s time to knuckle down and get to work on those fitness goals for the new year. It’s time to head back to gym, and you need a gym bag filled with the tools to help you succeed.

Headphones (and a killer playlist)

Whether it’s “Eye of the Tiger” to keep you motivated or “Bust down Thotiana” to get you squatting at gym, you need a pair of headphones in your gym bag. Go wireless to stop you from getting tangled up and take the time to put together a good selection of beats to keep you moving.

Stay Powered Up

Once you’ve got those jams together, make sure you pack a portable charger. You don’t want to be left without your gym playlist, your routine or your fitness tracker’s app. Keep this charged at home and pop it into your bag before you leave the house – no one has time for a dead phone when they’re smashing those fitness goals.

Odor protect

Just because you’re working up a sweat, doesn’t mean your trainers have to carry around the smell. Sneaker LAB brings you an advanced biotech sneaker cleaning formula – dedicated to fighting odours – straight from the lab and into your fitness routine. Keep a bottle of Sneaker LAB’s Odor Protector in your gym bag to prevent and put an end to unwanted odours.

Sealable bags

Keep a few reusable and sealable bags with your gym kit to keep your sweaty clothes, gym gloves and towel in after your workout. This will keep your bag and other belongings fresh. Invest in reusable options to save both your wallet and the planet.


Before you pack away your gloves, you should give them a wipe down to remove any excess moisture and germs. This is best done with a multi-purpose wipe, such as Sneaker LAB’s Sneaker Wipes. These can be used to wipe down gloves, your phone and your trainers and are a must have for any gym bag to use on-the-go.

Water bottle

Keeping hydrated is a must while you’re sweating it out at the gym – but think about the planet while you’re at it. Invest in a reusable water bottle to make sure you’ve got a cool drink at hand, without adding to the waste chocking up landfill sites.
