What's in Your Gym Bag: Volume 1

Blog Single

A picture is worth a thousand words, so what’s a picture of a bunch of your most trusted gym gear worth? We thought it was a great way to find out a little more about the people and sports WAG is fueling. So we asked some of our members to send in a sneak peek of their gym bags. Check them out because you may find something new to add to yours! :)

  • Wrist wraps
  • Headphones

Hi, I’m Dan! I live in Norfolk, Virginia, and I really enjoy staying active. My workout schedule usually consists of going to CrossFit, running with a local run club and playing in a kickball league. Having my gym bag ready to go is crucial since I've started working out in the morning. It’s so easy to grab and go! I graduated from James Madison University and bleed purple, which you can probably tell from the water bottle and jump rope (double-unders are still a work in progress). The wrist wraps have been super helpful, so they are a happy addition to my gym bag. I also keep headphones on me, because I love podcasts and enjoy having something to listen to when running, working out, etc.!

Client: Maude Dull


  • Sweat towel
  • Jump rope
  • Shin guard for rope climbs
  • Hand wraps
  • Snack
  • Whey protein with PB2
  • Water
  • A bag with a spare inner tube and bike tools
  • Bike lock and cable
  • And of course a helmet (on my head not in the bag!)

I’m a 47-year-old physician (pediatrician) and I’ve just moved to San Francisco to live with my mom. When I moved to the city I sold my car and I primarily bike, walk and use public transportation to get around. I’ve been a WAG member for several months and I’ve seen a huge improvement in body composition. I’m currently in the Alumni Program and taking a “supervised” break from weighing and measuring to work on intuitive eating techniques.

My superpower is consistency….

Client: Kim Freisen

  • Lifters
  • Knee sleeves

  • KT and athletic tape
  • Water bottle
  • Weight belt

  • Gum

I’m a three- to four-day a week CrossFitter and newbie CF coach. I’m 40 years old, husband of almost 19 years, father of three, and operating room nurse in the military. I enjoy all sports (especially those my kids are involved in) and reading “self-help” books, and I love a great cup of coffee (you have to love coffee when you live in Alaska)! Lastly, I’ve been a WAGer since Sept ’16 and love debunking the myth that carbs make you fat!
