There is nothing worse than carrying around a bulky gym bag caused by an oversize towel! Fortunately, my small Gaiam thirsty yoga towel ($12) has changed that. I love that it is small enough to keep in my gym bag without taking up space or causing a hassle when I'm on the go. I first bought it specifically for my Bikram practice but now use it at the gym and during spin class. Since it is extremely absorbent and quick drying, I've even used it after a swim! Best part? It's a great substitute for a stretch rope at the end of a workout.
