So, I know that approximately a bajillion people make the "get my ass to the gym" resolution every New Year’s. But it doesn’t have to be January 1st for me to tell myself, "I’m going to start being good about working out!" Dude, I make that kind of promise on a weekly-ish basis all year round. I’m probably the most consistently inconsistent worker out-er ever.
But now, after having used a buddy’s bring-a-friend-for-free Flybarre coupon, I’m actually genuinely motivated to stay committed. The class (a sort of toning-resistance-dance hybrid) was effing hard—but effective. My abs, arms and some weird thigh muscles I didn’t even know I had still hurt six days later. However, amidst all those cute and glowy Flybarre and Flywheel devotees, I also realized that workout wardrobe-wise, I am very under-equipped.
The first item on my must-buy list? A cute gym bag that won’t look too "high school P.E." or too “free from Urban Outfitters” (much like, well, the free Urban Outfitters shopping tote I’ve been using these days to lug around my sneakers and spandex.)
See some of the options I’m contemplating below—and help me choose!
