Locker Room Look Book is Well+Good’s new video series where we share (and you’ll score) post-workout beauty and style tips from white-hot wellness stars.

Packing your gym bag is the most mundane part of your workout routine—but also the most crucial. Going back out into the world without fresh socks, dry shampoo, or snacks? That’s a disaster waiting to derail your life plans.

Model (and yoga-loving fitness aficionado) Emily DiDonato has the secret: a giant gym bag that can fit it all. Think of that massive carryall Mary Poppins has—and then make it sweat-proof, and you’ve got the gist.

Plus, her packing routine is a master class in efficiency, with a well-stocked makeup bag, a smartly edited list of eats, and fitness essentials so she can take her workout wherever she goes.

In the video above, she gives us a peek inside her tote after a hot-yoga sweat sesh at New York City hip hop yoga spot, Y7 Studio.

Scroll down to shop our picks for the best bags for over-packers—plus, DiDonato’s post-workout-approved snacks.
