Giving Away One of My New Favorite Things

If you read my blog, then you probably know that I work out a lot.  What you may not know is that I don’t always work out in the same place.  I have a membership at a gym that has locations that are walking distance from home and school, but I also exercise at the gym inside my building.  Sometimes when I visit Mom, I exercise outside, and sometimes I hit the local gym there.  My workouts are pretty solid, and there are a few things that I always need regardless of where I’m sweating.

gymneeds

I need lots of water so I carry a 32 oz. bottle with me, and I need my music, headphones and I.D.  I also have to carry my house key and the key fob that allows access to my building and the elevators, but carrying my purse to the gym just doesn’t work for me.  I see women do it, but I have no interest in carrying a pretty designer bag home on my shoulder after a long, sweaty workout.  I suppose I could carry a gym bag, but being so close to the gym, at least in most cases, makes that unnecessary too.

pouch

When I go to the gym, I like to carry as little as possible so my new favorite gym essential is my On-The-Go Accessories Pouch from Active Accessories.  The company focuses on designing things that allow us to make our workouts the focus, as opposed to worrying about all of the things we have to keep track of at the gym, and I’m not sure how I carried everything before I had it.  Actually, I do remember what I did, and let’s just say that the pouch is much more convenient than stuffing my wallet in my bra.  (Yes…I really did that…a lot.)

I often use mine  even when I’m not at the gym because it’s a great way to keep my most important things organized even when I’m carrying my purse, and living downtown, I often walk to the grocery store, the bank, the post office, restaurants and bars to meet friends.  Carrying this pouch on my wrist is perfect for someone who’s always on the move, and it’s also great for people like me who like to keep it light during workouts.

    This looks like a good solution. I usually go to the gym with my keys, phone, headphones, and water bottle. It’s a lot to juggle sometimes. It would be nice to put everything except the water bottle in one handy spot.

    Love this! I would use this at my yoga class that has no locker room to store stuff. It is small enough to take it to class.

    You work out. When you work out, you do a workout. Or a work-out. But you work out. Two words. With a space in between. The verb is “to work out,” not “to workout.” The noun is “workout” or “work-out.” SOMEONE HAS TO GET THIS RIGHT IT MAKES ME INSANE.

      If I had an editor, I’m sure he or she would catch an abundance of typos that slip through the cracks. I know the difference, but I dictate many of my posts. I do my best to check for typos, but that’s an easy one for me (and auto-correction) to miss (apparently.)

      I pride myself on being pretty good with the words, but if you’re looking for grammatical perfection, you should probably look elsewhere.

    Since I run outside, this would be a wonderful solution for saggy pants from carrying my keys, phone, and iPod! Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

    I would like to enter to win the On-the-Go pouch. Many times at the gym I have to backtrack myself, looking for my locker keys. Sometimes I will leave the keys on the treadmill or on the gym floor. If I had the On-the-Go pouch visibily beside me, I would not have to worry about keeping up with extra things again, especially at the gym.

    Hi there,, I would love to have that pouch…i am going to be new to a gym, and this would be perfect for the nervous me, first time in years in a gym since gaining the weight, and at my age…nervous. That pouch would suit nervous me fantastically, could have it right there with me and can focus my mind on that, instead of having fear people are looking at me….don’t know. I don’t know how they are in gyms anymore. I mean seeing my plump behind in there..I’m not saying I am very huge, i just need to loose that 40 pounds…Well anyways, I did follow on twitter, as I did facebook, and i am mentioning it to you here…so that is 3 out of the list. Thanks so much, and here’s to our health..

    This is AWESOME! I would like this for when i workout, work out, and work-out! (funny how some people are so anal, ha!) I also would like this for when i go out and do not want to carry a purse! It’s cute and i love the colors and all the pouches, but most of all, I love that it will fit my smart phone!!! All too many times they fit everything BUT my phone! Thanks Kenlie, what a great giveaway! 🙂

    I would love to win one, but when I went to look at the website they were having a sale so I bought it, and some hair thingies. Perfect for my trips to the gym.

    Thanks Kenlie I probably wouldn’t have found that site on my own.
