When you live a busy life, you require a bag that does it all. Going from working out at the gym straight to work or running to the gym after work is common, so you need a bag that can carry both gym and work essentials. Below are bags that are bigger than they look and will ensure that both areas of your life are covered.

#1 ISM: The Classic Leather Backpack

The perfect work-gym-life backpack. Good, quality leather and materials that will last. Most backpacks were too casual for the workplace, or did not seem functional. The ISM backpack can actually carry a laptop and look professional while feeling casual and sporty enough to wear to the gym or the dinner out.

The perfect bag for the gym-lover! Fit your shower essentials, change of clothes, plus anything from boxing gloves to your dance shoes in this bag. The bottom shoe compartment (fits 2 pairs) has a mesh strip for ventilation to ensure your clothes and smelly shoes will be able to air out properly — you can even stash a hair dryer in there.

Store your water for before your workout, your protein shake for after and even your laptop for the work day to follow. Includes a cosmetics case, laundry bag and there’s even a zipper pocket on the back that becomes a trolley sleeve.

I absolutely love the 30L On My Level duffel bag from Lululemon for both work and the gym. Because I’m a mom and a fitness influencer/entrepreneur, I have lots of stuff to bring with me places on a daily basis. This duffel bag has room for my daughter’s toys and diapers, my laptop, fitness gear, and more!

There are internal pockets and zippered areas that are perfect for keeping you organized or your dirty gym clothes separate. There’s also an exterior pocket that’s great for storing your phone. There’s some space to tuck away an umbrella, too. The bag’s fabric is lightweight and easy to clean, which is nice! I also love how simple the duffel’s design is, as well as the two color options. You can get it in black or what Lululemon calls chrome.

The chrome has a great natural vibe (it’s not flashy, as one would think), and the black is timeless. The duffel looks clean and professional, so you can definitely bring it with you to the office! You can wear it across your body, or take off the strap to carry it by the handles. It’d also perfect to bring on a short trip or weekend getaway!
