What’s In My Gym Bag – Winter Edition

In all years past, the cold season has always signaled hibernation mode. No, I’m not talking about bears. I’m talking about my own habits! LOL. The chill of the air always prevented me from stirring up enough motivation to get myself to the gym on a regular basis during the winter.

When we signed up for our gym membership at the start of the year, I realized that it’s all about my mentality and discipline that fuels the regularity of my workouts at the gym. I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m so much more focused on my health. And that has been the driver to making me get to the gym, even on the days that are freezing cold outside.

During the winter, I wear my regular clothes to the gym and change in the locker room. It saves me the discomfort of being cold on my commute to/from the gym. It’s a simple change that makes it easier to get to the gym on cold days.

Because of this, I pack my gym bag differently for each season. I pack my workout clothes and sneakers because it makes more sense to wear my winter parka and boots. Some of the things that I pack year round are essentials like water and a heart rate monitor. Another essential gym bag item is Febreze Fabric Refresher.

After a long and hard workout, using Febreze Fabric Refresher on my gym clothes and sneakers is essential to keeping gym odors at the gym. After working out I change back to my regular clothes and spray all of my workout gear so that the OdorClearTM Technology can clean the tough odors and deactivate/replace them with a light, fresh scent. That way they are not stinking up my gym bag and car as I transport them back home.

Thanks to Febreze Fabric Refresher, my sneakers smell fresh for my next work out and my workout clothes don’t get soiled. I make sure to pack an extra tote bag with me to store the clothes and shoes post workout.

The process is simple! If it’s fabric, Febreze it. Post-workout, simply spray Febreze Fabric Refresher on your gym gear until completely damp to safely and effectively clean away workout odors – and ensure that gym odors stay where they belong (at the gym!).

On days that I skip the gym, I try my best to get in a quick at home work out. Sometimes I do fun workouts with the kids and we try to make an activity out of it. I’ve learned that making regular workouts a part of my day doesn’t have to be a time suck. I try to think of it as an investment into my overall health. And getting the kids to do with me sets a great example of a healthy lifestyle for our whole family.

At home workouts mean that I usually have dirty work out clothes that sit in our laundry basket for at least a few days. Bleh! With Febreze Fabric Refresher, I can eliminate work out odor from my clothes. I love that it keeps our hamper from being filled with stinky clothes and keeps those odors from spreading throughout the room!

And other days, I just quickly refresh my leggings and can wear it post-workout too. Because, hello, you guys all know that I’m totally Team Leggings as Pants. Haha. But seriously, Febreze Fabric Refresher leaves my clothes with a fresh scent for the rest of my busy, chaotic days.

Don’t let the winter season turn you in a bear. Head to the gym or to your favorite workout class! Make a fun at-home workout and get your kids involved. And don’t forget to Febreze Your Gear so you can leave the odor behind and not stuck on your clothes!
