A Glimpse Inside Byrdie Editors' Gym Bags
Going to the gym on a regular basis is a commitment for even the most exercise-inclined among us. Booking sessions around a busy schedule (social, or otherwise), remembering to wear workout-appropriate makeup that day—even just reminding yourself to pack a hair tie takes effort. Some days, we don't have that kind of energy to give. (They're called Mondays, FYI.) When we'd much rather go home and flop on the couch than hit up Pilates, we rely on a fully stocked gym bag to make the process as painless as possible. Going for a run at lunch on a sweaty spring day isn't so bad when we know we've got a muscle-soothing roll-on and several cans of dry shampoo waiting for us when we're done. Keen to see what Byrdie Australia editors keep in their gym bags?

"The Nike+ Running app (free) is my go-to helper when I’m going for a run. I like that you can add friend and help to keep each other motivated."
Venustus Muscle Melting Roll-On ($49)
"I think I love this stuff more than my husband, it's that good. I've tried so many post-workout sprays and balms but I can never go past this one. It kills muscle pain so effectively, and it's also entirely organic. It's the only antidote to leg day I know."
Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers ($17)
"I keep these blotting papers in my bag at all times, especially good for after work gym sessions if I forget my makeup wipes. They take the excess/dirt off. These ones are handmade in Japan so I guess I feel a bit special using them. I also like the plain packaging."
