What Not To Pack In Your Gym Bag?

Let’s go off-topic for a bit and find out the things you don’t need to pack in your Ruigor Motion for the gym, to be sure. But, don’t worry; the best section of this blog is next. We promise.

  1. Gloves.
  2. During-workout drinks.
  3. Disinfectant wipes.

Gym Bag Essentials For Beginners

When you start packing your Ruigor Motion before going to the gym, remember to always zip in these things unless you want a round trip back home. It can frustrate you and burn some extra unwanted petrol too if you go to your exercise club on a bike for that matter.

Gym bag

Unless you want to look like someone who has come shopping with a shopping bag at the gym, you need a gym bag to put all your gym essentials in. You don’t need anything fancy, just something that can conveniently carry your gymming stuff, such as a duffel bag. We would recommend the Ruigor Motion backpack.

Workout-specific gear

This one is optional, and you only need it if you schedule your daily workout. Let’s give you an example to be more precise. For instance, you might need a weighted dipping belt for pull-ups, fractional plates for micro loading Barbells or tension bands, a yoga mat, ankle weights, a weighted vest, etc ., depending on your workout.


So what’s a pre-workout, you ask? Nope, it’s not the warm-up or exercise before the real deal; it’s caffeine drinks that give you energy for workouts, performances, and recovery. These are optional, but as per some studies, it gives you a performance boost. As a bonus, which is a win-win.


We have been through this harsh realization when we would forget our sneakers to the gym. Trust us. It isn’t very pleasant to see others cycling, while you can’t because you forgot your shoes at home. Also, don’t forget your socks either.


Let us ask you something, would you like a good workout or a satisfied excellent workout? You will surely prefer the latter, for which you need motivational music. So pack your favourite headphones and hit the gym.

Reusable water bottle

It’s the basics. When you exert too much sweat, you get thirsty. So without explanation, don’t forget to pack your water bottle before you reach the gym. Staying hydrated is crucial to achieving your weight loss goals.

Gym clothes

It will be so embarrassing if you forget your gym attire at the gym. Although you can exercise in anything that makes you comfy, gym clothes inspire you at the right spot. So they are a must-must

Dry shampoo

This thing on our list can be convenient, especially at times when you are spent enough to take a shower. At such times a dab of dry shampoo can help you remove excess sweat & oils from your hair and give your roots volume and texture. Very useful if you ask us.

Shower essentials

Now, for those of you who never run out of energy, even after extreme workouts, we would suggest you pack some shower essentials, including shampoos, conditioners, body wash, etc. ensure that you are shinning from tip to toe.

Cleansing wipes

These are the essentials, especially for women. After a heavy workout, you wish to remove sweat and makeup (although we won’t recommend it at the gym). Not only that, but it also works perfectly as an odour neutraliser.


You need this spray can at the gym. Not only to smell good for others but for yourself. Besides, there is no harm in spraying some in your underarms before, after, and during your workout.

Wide-toothed comb

Another essential for women and men with long hair. You know, it’s always annoying when snags or knots in your hair get in the way of your exercise. This accessory helps you gently remove these things, isn’t it great?

Compact microfiber towel

A word of advice before you hit the gym; its towels don’t guarantee to work on everyone. In other words, it might not clean you properly after a workout. So, be wise and pack your compact microfiber towel in your Ruigor Motion bag and get ready for the challenge.


Last but not least, snacks. If you are asking, am I going to the gym to work out or eat? Then let us inform you, you will need some light snacks like an energy bar to replenish your energy between workouts.

So there you have it, now you are familiar with all the gym bag essentials to pack in your Motion bag. We wish you good luck and success in your next workout.


We all know that a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. That’s why we go to the gym every day to work out, lose weight and stay in shape to stay energized for the day. However, there are some essentials at the gym that you must have in your Ruigor Motion bag. So pack everything and hit the gym, fully prepared for your next workout.
