Fit Tip: Keep Workout Gear With You, Just in Case

I've learned my lesson. There have been many times when a meeting has been canceled, a friend invited me on an impromptu run in the park, or I finished work a little early. These were perfect times to fit in a workout, but I had the lamest excuse — my gear was at home. So now I keep an extra outfit and sneaks at work or in my car, or I wear workout clothes if I've got nothing going on that day. So if an opportunity to exercise presents itself, I won't have the excuse that I don't have anything to wear.

As a follow up - I actually ended up having a cancellation and had time to get to the gym! I'm so glad I had my clothes with me!!!

I do this too...I keep a bag with a set of workout clothes and shoes in my car. I also keep a jump rope in there and a spare battery for my MP3 player so I'm always prepared.

Too funny - I just made that decision today. My day is so planned today and I normally DO NOT skip a workout but I just can't get to the gym today. But...I thought....life doesn't always go as planned - so on my way out - I grabbed my gym clothes!!

i always take my bag w/ workout clothes, shoes, etc. so that I can run a few miles on the treadmill on a lunch break or go straight to a class at the gym from work. it's rare that something comes up to ruin both of those opportunities, and sometimes i feel motivated enough to do both.
