Up for a meet or gym practice? Carry everything you will use in a gym bag. What is it exactly to include in a bag? Whether you pack it for yourself or for your gymnast kid, it is great to be prepared. Here are a few essentials you should always bring.
Athletic tape or duct tape can fix everything. This will protect your wrists or body from injury. It is something a gymnastics world will never lose.
No grips mean no bars during the meet. While some gyms allow you to leave your grips it is still good to bring one yourself. It is a must for both men and women gymnasts. Extra Clothes
You should always have extra clothes along with you so you can change after practice. Wearing sweaty clothes will never be healthy for your skin.
Sometimes, hair falls out. Have a comb, clips, or hair elastics to be able to fix it. Don’t forget your hairspray to make a strong hold. This will help you avoid a messy hair day.
You can’t always go out to buy anything you want to fuel up making it essential to keep something you can munch on. Foods that are high in protein will do.
Water or Sports Drink
Always keep yourself hydrated by bringing a bottle of water of your own. A practice is so much tiring and you sweat a lot. Having something to drink could save your day.
Carrying a deodorant is something that needs no explanation. You and your fellow players may be thankful for having some backup.
Gymnastics is full of activity. It is good to pack everything you need in advance to save yourself when in a hurry. Is there something you can add to this list? We’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments.
