So I joined a gym...again. I quit my old one because it was too expensive and I never went because there was only one in the LA basin. The one I belong to now is about 1/4 of the price of the first one I joined and they have facilities all over the place. It’s not as nice as the other gym but I’ve discovered I don’t really need all those fancy amenities. I just need a place to run on a treadmill and take group classes.

The trouble is at this place there are no assigned lockers. I kept all my gym shit at the gym in my locker at the other place. Now I’ve found myself needing a bag to carry that stuff in (deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, lock for locker, sneakers, gym clothes, wireless earphones, extra socks, etc) so I thought I would crowdsource from the lovely Groupthink crew.

What do you carry your gym stuff in? What do you like about it? What do you dislike about it?

Also, what do you keep in your gym bag? I carry a lot with me and I’m wondering if I should pare it down or if I’m missing something that would be useful!
