5 gym bag essentials

The Vitl Nutrition Team / 12 Jun 2018

Our friends at Fitty, the health and fitness box for men and women are here with their top 5 favourite gym bag essentials to help you get the most out of your sweat game.


Arete Complete Sweat Towel

If a sweat towel was a work of art, this is it. With their super cool prints, Arete’s towels are the most stylish way to cool down. They’re insanely absorbent, quick drying, slip resistant, and way outperform traditional cotton.

Fitty hip circle

We couldn’t not mention our own product! This hip circle (which you’ll find inside The Angus Box) is a super strong resistance band, which can strengthen (and build!) your glutes. Strong glutes aren’t just for aesthetics; they impact performance too – from running to weightlifting. Use it to warm up, or as a whole workout in itself.  

Jax Compact

If you lift weights, this new invention is genius. You wedge the Jax Compact under your weight plate, so it acts like a jack (see what they did there?), allowing you to add and remove extra weight easily. Essentially, it means you save your strength for when you need it most.

Mr Black’s Sports Refresh Spray

This is our saviour! It’s a powerful solution that kills bacteria and neutralises sweat odours in gym kit, making it perfect for a quick refresh when you’re dashing off after a sweaty class. It’s designed specifically for technical fabrics, and it helps prolong their life (so buying those expensive Lululemon leggings is totally justifiable).

Protein Superblends 

We always advise eating a proper meal to replenish and refuel after a workout, but protein shakes are a brilliant in-between. As well as nourishing protein to help muscles recover, the VITL Superblends are vegan and provide a range of essential vitamins and minerals to help you get the most from your workout and help with recovery. Winner.
