A few months ago I was sparked by a situation that taught me I can never be too prepared! As a result, I wanted to bring you a few gym bag essentials every women needs at all times. Signing up to the gym is the first step into a healthier lifestyle. In the beginning it can be very intimidating and therefore, a thought of a gym bag may seem almost unnecessary, wrong! So let’s just say one day while at the gym I’m running along in the treadmill, when I feel shark week decided to start. Instantly, I feel everyone knew of my situation and had their eyes on me, although nobody probably had a clue of what was happening . Due to this incident, I have learned to be prepared for unexpected situations and U by Kotex Fitness has been a go to.

As I’ve mentioned previously I will not be unprepared for shark week again! If you are hitting the gym with me you can be sure that my gym bag is filled with anything or everything we might possibly need. For example, Hungry? I’ve got gummy bears! Let me grab my bag. There’s no need for carrying a ginormous bag, but there is a need for something that can help in various situations. Did I miss any of your essentials in my list?

    So happy to see those Kotex tampons with the cute packaging. When Kotex was my client when I was in advertising years ago and all the marketing folks were men, I was trying to get them to introduce colorful, fun packaging and they wouldn’t hear of it. Finally!!

      I’m so glad you saw the vision of that, honestly packaging is everything.

    I remember teaching my little 7-8 year olds and realizing that Shark Week was starting. The look on my face must have been priceless. These would have been in my desk drawer with my necessities.
