6 Totes That'll Get You From Class to the Gym

Between classes, meetings, internships and homework, going to the gym can seem impossible to make time for. Not only do you have to physically get yourself there (which is half the battle), you also need to get dressed for the gym before, and shower before changing back into your normal (non-sweaty) clothes afterwards to keep your day moving. Unfortunately, this means carrying around not just your books, but also your gym essentials, around with you throughout the day. Fortunately, with the simple swap of your standard school bag to a big carry-all tote, you can keep everything you need for the gym with you when you’re running around during the day!

1. Boat and Tote Bag, $24.95, L.L.Bean

In a variety of colors and sizes, this tote is a classic Northeastern staple that will hold all of your things with ease. Its durable design can hold up to 500 pounds... not that you want to be carrying that much stuff.

2. Pretty Nylon Tate Tote, $198, Marc by Marc Jacobs

Nylon is easy to wipe clean if it gets a bit roughed up and the bag’s outside side pockets are the perfect size to hold your water bottle for your workout.

3. Camo Tote, $225, Mark & Graham

This stylish camouflage print bag can be embroidered with your initial in a contrasting orange thread. You can also pick up matching cosmetic bags, which will hold anything  from pens and pencils to makeup and shampoo! 

4. Cabana Tote Bag, $178, Lilly Pulitzer

This nautical tote is accented with super cute metallic leather handles. It’s a great bag for the spring... and you lucky collegiettes who go to school where it’s summer all year round.

5. Noelle Tote Bag, $99, Kipling

Kipling is known for their luggage, so it only makes sense that they would make a sturdy tote bag to add to their collection. This one comes in fun bright colors and has lots of pockets on the inside and outside so you can separate your school must-haves from your sweaty gym clothes.

6. Janis Tote, $168, LeSportsac

A high-shine tote is always chic. This large one from LeSportsac has a zipper top to keep your things secure and will go with even your most fashionable outfits.

Any of these bags would be great for carrying your gym things along with anything else you’d need for your day. Which one would you use around campus?
