HEALTHY MEMBER HINTS 

Gym Bag

WHAT'S IN YOUR GYM BAG? 


How many times have you rushed to the Y and realized you forgot your iPod or shower shoes?


Pack your workout bag the night before and place it in your car. That way you have what you need and no excuse to head to the gym before or after your plans for the day.

GYM BAG MUST HAVES

Avoid those “uh-oh” moments by packing these items before you head out.


  • Lock for your day locker.
  • iPod and headphones.
  • Water bottle.
  • Hair ties to keep hair out of your face.
  • Small snack to refuel after your workout.
  • Extra socks - just in case.
  • If you are planning a shower after your workout, pack flip flops and extra pair of clothes.


WE HAVE YOU COVERED

If you forget to pack your towel or water, don’t worry! Our Y offers filtered water fountains and hand towels to keep you dry. If you are showering, we have bath soap in all showers, towels and hair dryers for our adult members. Don't want to worry about carrying that gym bag back and forth? We have lockers for rent. Ask about availability at the Membership Desk. 

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Click to read more about our Open Door Scholarship Program for financial assistance.
