    for me it's my Sweaty Band and 2 ponytail holders to put my hair up in piggies. I can't stand my hair getting all in the way of my exercise!

    word :)

    I have the same problem

    100% need my headphones/music. Without it I can't focus. The gym makes me a little nervous and I get really self conscious without my distractions from everyone around me. lol

    self conscious? why sweetheart? Im sure you look better than half of the crocidiles in your gym ^_^.

    But when I started out i was like that too, the eyes of people watching me hop on a treadmill at 400lbs. Thank goodness for headphones. I dont wish that kind of attention on anyone =/

    Headphones - no doubt! I have a few pairs I tuck away now in my bag/coat/car just in case lol.

    ^ I do the same. I also hate forgetting my water bottle... drives me cray-cray.

    I've managed to work out at various times with various levels of discomfort after forgetting:
    water
    socks
    sneakers
    sports bra
    headphones

    The only time I turned around and went home was when I forgot my bike lock. No way I'm leaving my bike outside the gym!
  • In order of importance:

    Headphones, Phone (for music), Water bottle, HRM

    That's about all I need. It sucks hardcore if I forget my headphones cause music is the thing that motivates me the most in the whole world! Even at home.

    Haha, one time I forgot my sports bra for rugby practice. I had a regular bra but it was more than worthless for any type of sport. Rather than skip practice, I borrowed a teammates XS tshirt and wore it like a sports bra. Hahaha it totally worked but it was sooo ridiculous.

    I simply have a water bottle, sweat towel, and key chain (with the key card on it) and (on lifting day) a very small pocket sized notebook and pen to keep track of my sets.
