Do You Use a Gym Bag?

Do You Use a Fitness-Specific Gym Bag?

It wasn't until recently that I started using a fitness-specific gym bag. I always thought, "No need to waste money and material on something that I don't really need." I was dead wrong. Ever since getting a lululemon gym bag, I get the appeal: tons of pockets, separate compartments for clean and dirty clothes, and it's well-ventilated to keep away funky smells. There are also little extras that I love, like a strap for my yoga bag.

Why it may seem crazy that I didn't have a gym bag — I am a fitness writer after all! — it's not that unusual. Lots of people at my gym use old totes, or stash essentials in the trunk of their car. How about you?

I really want one, but I just don't know which one to get. I do yoga, and (should sign up for) gyms, and I am always on my bike to get to places. Just have no idea which bag is good for that. :(

I'm terrible. I use my friend makes fun of me for it. I think I should buy a gym bag. :/

I use either my cheap Target bargain bin beach tote or one of my Aerie bags I've gotten for free. Three gyms for less than $10 = awesome.

I bought my lululemon gym back a couple years ago and it was a great purchase. I use it for gym and weekend travel. The laundry bag and designated pockets are those things you don't realize you need until you have them. I'm sure there are other great brands out there too, but my lulu bag is nothing short of amazing.
