When you go to the gym , do you prepare well for exercise? I initially went with any type of clothing that was a little comfortable and that’s it. But in reality this is not the right thing to do. If you go to the gym you must equip yourself with the essential accessories to exercise properly.
Today I want to recommend some of these elements that should not be missing in your sport bag, but, as always, ideally choose the ones that suit you best.
The most important thing so that you can carry out a satisfactory and undisturbed exercise is that you wear comfortable clothing suitable for the activity. You can find multitude of models of trousers of sport, but the meshes are the most practical, since when adjusting to the body will give you the possibility to make better the movements, in a group class as in the machines of the gymnasium.
But not only clothes are important, what about the slippers and accessories like the towel or the water bottle?
A good pair of sneakers is indispensable
You should keep in mind that sneakers are an essential element to train. But these have to be as perfect as possible, because if they touch or are not suitable for the sport you are going to do, you will not be able to exercise in a normal way. In addition, poor quality shoes can cause injuries to the knees. I know from personal experience…
I also recommend that you bring two different towels to the gym. A little larger to dry after the shower, and another smaller towel to dry your sweat during exercise. In addition, in many gyms it is mandatory to wear this small towel for reasons of hygiene, to clean the machines after use. To me it seems perfect!
You may also need gloves to perform different exercises with the machines and avoid blisters or scabs on your hands. They can also help you not to slip through the sweat on machines. Of course, these gloves should be special for sport.
Moisturize is very important
The water bottle is one of the most important elements that you have to take to the gym, since hydration during and after exercise is basic for the body. I suggest you buy a hard plastic bottle so you can refill it, as it is not very advisable to give several uses to a normal water bottle. If you choose the latter you should use a different one every day. I also wash the hard plastic bottle with hot water and soap to prevent germs.
On the other hand, a music player or Mp3 player is also advisable to make training easier. In many occasions the ideal is to work to the rhythm of the music so that it helps us to be constant in the exercises. In addition, in this device we can see the time to control the series or repetitions and thus avoid wearing a watch, which is always more uncomfortable for the wrist.
If after the exercise you decide to take a shower at the gym do not forget all those items of personal hygiene that will be useful as the gel, shampoo, comb and slippers. If you have long hair you should also wear hairbrushes and hairpins to be able to pick it up and avoid being disturbed while doing sports.
With all these accessories you can equip perfectly to go to the gym, but can you think of more?
