Actually going to the gym is hard enough. (Show of hands, who else recently became a member at Equinox or some such in the last month?) The real hurdle is figuring out what to bring. There's the sneakers, the secret stick of Secret you cheat on your natural deodorant with...not to mention the rest of the dopp kit full of things you might need so you can look normal again. The possibilities are endless and the stakes are high.

Some say it's about the two bag technique—one pouch with shower essentials, one for everything else. Makes for a quick grab when the entire class is gunning to use one of three showers. Or there's the non-shower route, supposedly. Less baggage, but more aerosol cans of dry shampoo.

So, please disclose: What's portable, reliable, multi-purposeful? It's important to get this out of the way now so that there's time to focus on not hating the treadmill.
