Motivation and preparation are both key to a successful, consistent fitness regimen. Stocking your gym bag with the items and accessories you need to feel your best will, in turn, help you perform your best while eliminating any room for excuse-making. Take a look into the gym bag of a Longevity trainer and shop their essentials.

BALA WRIST WEIGHTS

LAUNDRESS SPORT SPRAY
Who doesn’t love smelling like a clean load of laundry, even after an intensive workout? Made with less than 5 plant-derived ingredients, this long-lasting spray is a gym bag must. Shop Laundress detergent and sport spray at the Longevity Fitness Penthouse.
We love a good sweat, but that love isn’t always reciprocated by our hair. Dry shampoo is a quick and effective way to freshen up hair without having to fully wash and dry. However, many dry shampoos, aerosols especially, contain harmful ingredients to both your body and the environment. Opt for naturally-derived powdered dry shampoo - and if you prefer aerosol, avoid any of the following ingredients: butane, propane, isobutane, mica, fragrance, talcum and tetrafluoropropene. This dry shampoo is a clean alternative.
