The current Covid-19 virus has had a major impact on our lifestyle but we should not give up our exercise habits. Health is priceless. The current situation has many psychological, behavioral and physical effects on all of us. However, living in a state of lockdown does not necessarily mean giving up a healthy lifestyle. On the contrary, it can be the perfect opportunity to improve your physical fitness!
As long as you maintain a safe physical distance and personal hygiene in public places, you can still jog, hike and walk with your friends. During such outdoor sports, it’s a good idea to keep all your sports-related items in your sports duffel bag. This way, not only will your hands be free, but all your personal belongings will be neat and tidy.
How to find the right sports duffel bag for you. Below, we will list a series of selection criteria and share what a perfect duffel bag should look like.
Four criteria for selecting a sports duffel
As with any other bag purchase, there are several key aspects to consider in the selection process, including the type of fabric, adaptability to your sporting activities and spaciousness.
In addition, appearance is also an important aspect.
Whatever the sporting activity, you need a reliable and durable duffel bag that can be stuffed with all the essentials. In addition, if you play sport at least twice a week, the fabric and design of your sports duffel must be strong enough to withstand any wear and tear.
Don’t forget that just the basics (such as running shoes, gym clothes and water) take up a lot of space. Therefore, when choosing your sports travel bag, you should look for one that is sturdy and reliable.
When looking for the perfect sports duffel, make sure it is spacious enough to hold all your gear. For this reason, large main compartments are a must.
You can use the main compartment to store your clothes and toiletries, while your shoes can go in another compartment. This ensures that you don’t store your dirty clothes alongside your clean clothes or shoes.
On the other hand, carrying your gym bag should be effortless. An easy-to-use and lightweight duffel bag will help. Try to strike a balance between the spaciousness of your bag and its lightness.
Of course, some people don’t care about the look of their sports duffel, but for most people, a sports duffel will also reflect your personal taste.
If you’re ready to swap a blank duffel bag for a unique one made just for you, decorate your sports bag with words, symbols, or drawings. This will make your bag look very stylish.
If you practice more than one sporting activity, the first thing to consider is the bag’s adaptability to different types of sporting activities. For example, taking the same duffel for exercise, hiking or even traveling without worrying about forgetting something important in another bag.
What to pack in your sports duffel?
Everyone has probably experienced the annoying feeling that we forget to bring something important(such as headphones or trainers) after we arrive at the gym at least once.
Having your list of sports bag essentials can help you pick the right one for you.
Your sports shoes are obviously an essential item. The type of shoes required for a specific sport is important. For example, you can’t go for a run in bulky hiking shoes or go for a quiet yoga practice in dusty running shoes.
In addition, having several pairs of alternating sports shoes will allow you to keep your shoes dry, which will prevent smelly feet.
There’s nothing more annoying than bringing the wrong important workout clothes. The wrong pair of sweatpants could turn your yoga workout into a disaster. The material of your workout clothes is also important, for example in summer you should choose a high-performance breathable fabric that keeps you fresh.
You need to choose a lightweight, reusable stainless steel water bottle with a BPA-free lid. In the long run, you will save more money if you buy a reusable water bottle than if you buy mineral water or sports drinks.
Some gyms will ask you to bring a towel. This is not only hygienic but also polite as even if you don’t sweat too much, the sweat you leave on the exercise equipment can affect the next person who uses it.
Even if you are working out on your own outdoors, you should bring a towel to freshen up after your workout.
Whatever your sport and wherever you go, hygiene is important. You should try to freshen up after strenuous exercise.
