Gym Essentials: What To Bring To The Gym

You've signed up to the gym and you're off to have your first workout but you're not quite sure what you need to take with you. Check off these items and you're good to go!


  1. Phone

Tune into your workout playlist, book into a class via our Pure Fitness App, follow a workout, or set a timer to complete a workout - have your phone so you're prepped and ready for your workout!

  1. Padlock

We have lockers available in our gyms to store your belongings, just make sure to bring a padlock. If you don't have one or forget to bring one, you can always get one from the vending machine in the gym.

  1. Towel

Bring a towel to keep you dry and an extra one if you want to take a shower after your workout.

  1. Watch

Use your watch to track your workout times. If you've got a smartwatch why not log your workouts so you can monitor your activity levels and progress?

  1. Bottle of water

Hydration is important if you want to perform well in the gym. Don't forget to bring a water bottle with you when you visit. We have water stations in the gym if you need to top up during your workout.


  1. Resistance bands

Great for working on your mobility or using in your warm up. For example, use a looped resistance band for glute activation exercises in your warm up on leg day.

  1. Toiletries

If you want to freshen up after your workout, don't forget to bring your toiletries, including shampoo and shower gel.

  1. Post workout snack

If you're on the go and don't like to go hungry after a workout, don't forget to pack a healthy snack in your bag so you don't undo all the work you've worked hard for in the gym.

  1. Spare change of clothes


All of our clubs have vending machines with drinks and protein snacks in case you get hungry or thirsty before, in-between or after your workout. You will also be able to buy a Pure Fitness branded goods such as a towel, padlock, water bottle and more.
