Home-work-gym can leave you with a sore head trying plan!! Get prepared so you don’t end up skipping a workout. Below are the top 5 tips to help making the work-gym transition easy;
1.Try to pack your gym bag the night before you train. You don’t want to have to scramble to find a pair of socks when you’re late, running around with coffee in one hand and a piece of toast in the other! Make a habit of re-packing your bag every night before you go to bed, you’ll be grateful the next morning when you have one less thing to deal with.
2.Wipes are your best friend: Whether it’s wiping off pore-clogging makeup before Zumba or giving yourself a quick refresh before a workout, having a stash of face or body wipes will help you get where you need to be in a flash.
3.And the extras: It always helps to keep a few extra items in your gym bag for those days when you realise you forgot something essential. Trainer socks, hair ties, plasters, and a few plastic bags are just a few extras that should find a home in your gym bag. Here are some more items to pack.
4.Keep it separate: Wet swimsuits, dirty towels, and sweaty workout clothes can breed bacteria. Keep a plastic or reusable wet bag in your gym bag — or designate an entire compartment for these items only — so you can keep damp clothes contained. I’m especially bad for this and let things linger far too long!
5.Clean it out: For similar germ-related reasons, make sure you give your gym bag a regular clean out. Take some time every weekend to throw away any old tissues (lets keep this clean shall we) or half-eaten snacks that have made their way into your bag, clean those knee/angle supports, and wipe down or wash the bag itself in order to prevent germs from festering.
