What do you need for a workout?

Deciding what you need for a workout can be tough. You don’t want to go overboard and have to lug around a heavy bag but you also don’t want to disadvantage your workout because you forgot something important.

With that said you really don’t need anything to still have a good workout. However, the list below will give you an idea of some things that can help improve your workouts. And there’s a surprise at the end of it all!

A gym bag

You need something to carry all of your stuff in. A light bag is ideal for this. For example this backpack from ADDICTED.

Wipes For Body And Face

Our recommendation for this is Anthony Shower Sheets. This product works great! I’m more than sure that you’ll love it. These babies will get the job done (maybe almost too well?) in 30 seconds flat. They are very light and do not take up much space in your bag.

Headphones and a good playlist

There are thousands of different headphones on the market. It really just comes down to personal choice. I like wireless headphones – that way there is no chance of the wire distracting me or getting caught up during my workout. That is just my preference, feel free to go for whatever brand or style of headphones you prefer.

After you’ve packed your headphones you need a workout playlist to pump during your time at the gym. A great playlist can help lift your energy and motivate you through your workout. You can start to follow us on Spotify as we have a great playlist!

Use a deodorant

You don’t want to be known as the workout stinker! You can try to use this product from Anthony – The No Sweat Body Defence is an award-winning, talc-free, cream-to-powder, chafe-preventing miracle in a tube, providing a defensive barrier for your delicate areas, private parts, and feet!

A unique no-mess formula made with tapioca starch, a natural, talc-free alternative with a smooth, lightweight powdery finish. Enriched with aloe vera that soothes and refreshes, macadamia nut oil extract that delivers superior moisture and glide, and glycerin that acts as a nourishing skin conditioner. This product is great for use down below, as well as on the hands, feet, and thigh area.

Workout tracking app

Progressing in your workouts is key to making gains and becoming a stronger, fitter, healthier version of yourself. The key to progressing is measuring your workouts so that next time you can aim to improve on them. The benefit of having a record is you can look back and see how you progressed over time and see if some lifts are progressing faster than others. This is really beneficial information if you are serious about your health/ fitness goals.

You should record all of your lifts, how many reps per set, and how much weight you’re moving. That way your next session you can get straight into it and you no what you’re aiming to beat. Trying to remember everything in your head is just asking for trouble.

I record my workouts in an app called Strong, which has been the best app I have found so far. The downside is it charges a monthly subscription. The good news is you don’t need a fancy app if you don’t want to. You can record everything you need in the notes app on your phone.

Comfy gym clothes and underwear

They don’t need to be from a fancy brand. What they do need to be is comfy. A shirt that allows you to move around freely and isn’t too hot. If it’s leg day you’ll want some shorts that let you squat without having to worry about splitting the back of them open. Not good!

Also, I can recommend you to wear jockstraps during your training-sesh. In my opinion, this is the most comfortable underwear for that. You can get them from our store, or just subscribe to a Gay Pack, and in your taste profile select only jockstraps – then you’ll get a pair of fab jocks!

Cool down foot spray

Recommended by GQ Magazine in its Best Grooming Items of the Week – Foot Spray From James + Jake! It contains a blend of natural eucalyptus to blitz nasty bacteria and mint for a fragrant, uplifting, and cooling sensation. Free from unnecessary fragrance or artificial colors and packaged in a lightweight, shatter-proof, and recyclable spray bottle.

Let’s be honest, having a minty fresh foot spray handy is always a quick and easy way to cover up nasty foot odours that can catch you off guard after your workout.


So hopefully this has answered your question about what you need for the workout. Ultimately all you need is yourself and a good mood. But these are some other good things that can help improve your workouts. That’s why we have created the perfect kit for the perfect workout.

It includes 1 pair of surprise underwear + 7 grooming & lifestyle products, from exclusive socks to a fantastic foot spray and everything in between. And yes, that beautiful bag by Addicted is also included.

Let me know what you thought about this kit. Did we miss anything? What essentials do you use during your workout?
