What's In My Gym Bag?

A month ago I did something completely out of character for me and I joined my local gym. I've been unhappy with my figure for a really long time and something snapped in me this Summer which made me decide to do something about it. While I enjoy team sports I do not like running and in the past could never see myself at a gym, however I actually really enjoy going and seeing the results my hard work puts in. I thought I would do a twist on the typical 'What's In My Bag' post and show this amazing Vans backpack the lovely people at sent me last week. 

Not only do I love Vans as a brand, the tiger print on this bag is so cool and slightly different from the usual animal prints. It fits all my gym essentials inside with ease meaning I can go before or after work and not have to lug a huge bag around with me. I also love the little slots for stuff on the additional pocket at the front as it means I can always find my membership card, earphones, hair bands etc.

You can check out the rest of the Vans range on the Surfdome site here.

Would you like to read more about my mission to get fit, such as recipes, progress reports etc?
