If carrying your bag to the gym feels more like a workout that your actual gym routine it may be time to search for a new bag. From 5am workouts to late bulking sessions the last thing you should be worrying about is having a mediocre gym bag. Sure, you could shove your yoga pants, sneakers, and water bottle into your purse, but no one wants to be the girl with an overstuffed handbag. Hang up the flimsy, unstylish tote you got for free from last year’s Sephora sale.
