Between work, school, and having a life, it can be hard to make it to the gym. This is especially true when you're being weighed down by a tote for every occasion. Drop the extra baggage and invest in one bag that can carry it all. These five stylish gym bag have lots of compartments to keep everything in place (including your yoga bag!), as well as a built-in padded laptop sleeve to keep your computer safe.
Whether you are a runner, dancer, or swimmer, you need a bag that you can depend on. If you need a pouch for your shoes, area for wet clothes, or something with comfy straps, no problem. Here are five cool bags that we've found that will store your items perfectly for your workout of choice. Let us know what's your favorite bag.
Considering my everyday handbag is large enough to carry more things than necessary, I was happy to receive the roomy Lululemon Hobo Bag ($118) for review. At 15 inches wide by 13.5 inches tall, this bag is made to fit everything you'll need before and after your workout, whether that's a sweaty Bikram class or a heart-pounding gym session.
After a few weeks of trucking the bag to and from work, the gym, and yoga class, I've gotten used to being able to lug around more gear than I probably should. For one, the Hobo bag holds its shape whether it's packed or empty, which makes it easy to fill when I'm getting my gear ready at night. A surprising number of pockets and compartments makes gym organization easy too — there are three interior mesh pockets, one zippered, for small items (most pockets have a label, like "before," "after", "keys," and, naturally, "chocolate"), not to mention a strap to hold your yoga mat (it will stick out of the unzipped top). On the outside there are two large zippered compartments that can fit your clothes, and two outside pockets for anything from a yoga towel to your phone; they also have toggle ties, which will keep your water bottle from spilling. With these organizational amenities it's no wonder the bag can fit everything I need; in addition to my shoes, sports bra, pants, cosmetics bag, and multiple workout shirts, I'm able to stuff my laptop in it as well.

I'm in the market for a new gym bag, and I'm loving the options that I've found. Now all I've got to do is narrow it down to type: do I need a bag that can fit just the basics, one that can go anywhere, or one that can carry work clothes, a laptop, and the rest? Check out these picks for bags for every type of gym-goer!

Puma's Fitness Lux bag ($60) is for the girl who wants the practicality of a gym bag without sacrificing on style; its slouchy hobo style fools onlookers that she's more fashion than function. If she's more utilitarian in her look, pick out the adidas by Stella McCartney Plico bag ($112); the blue canvas material is so on point with the military trend. Maybe your gal pal is a bit flashier and likes to bring the bling? Then grab her the gold and black Nike Club bag ($70). Or, get back to basics with Puma's Fitness bag ($51). If it's lively you want, it's lively you get; the adidas Anya Day duffel ($45) has cartoons, anime, and video games written all over it.
