The wonderful gifts keep on coming! Are you a woman who lugs all her stuff to the gym before heading off to work? Do you like to keep your workout gear organized? Do you just love cute bags? If you answered yes to any of these, our next sneak peek is for you! When Genna from Fivesse contacted us about reviewing one of their amazing gym bags, I jumped at the chance. How many times have you used an old, nasty, boring bag to carry your stuff? In my case, I’ve been using a sling bag that’s simply too small, especially if I need to bring a change of clothes and toiletries. Most times, I would coordinate my morning workouts to be early enough so I could come back home to get ready. Now, I can take everything with me!

The 5S philosophy: SORT all you need for your workout and daily routine, STORE everything in its place, SYSTEMIZE keep all your things organized, SUSTAIN your fitness routine, SHINE look great on the outside and feel good on the inside.
Fivesse sent me their Home-Gym-Work bag in houndstooth pink to review and I have to say, it’s pretty brilliant. All the pockets are labeled, it’s plenty big enough to fit everything I’d need to get ready for work at the gym, and it’s just a beautiful bag. This bag retails for $124 and they sent me a second one we get to give away in our Holiday Gift Guide! There is also an optional garment bag which can attach for $64. If you don’t need quite as large of a gym bag, the Home-Gym-Home bag is an excellent choice at $99. It’s also great for yoga as this bag has a strap for carrying your mat and smaller compartments if you don’t have as many toiletries to carry.
I was able to put a ton of stuff into my bag – enough for 2 trips to the gym – and I still have room left over for a hair dryer, makeup bag, and even an extra change of real clothes. As you can see, the bag is pretty big and the only drawback is that the lockers at my gym are small. The bag barely fits but I can make it work. When I first looked at the shoe pocket, I doubted a pair of shoes would fit, but I think I could even get my cycle shoes in there if I wanted. There are a couple of great videos on how to use the bags. You can find them here for the Home-Gym-Work bag and here for the Home-Gym-Home bag.
