A Fitmark Bag Review by yours truly. Gym bags are a funny one for me – I always feel like I am lacking one and want a cute, new one but I never end up finding something I like. Right now my soccer bag is a reusable cloth bag I got at a conference a couple years ago. And my “gym bag” is literally an old duffel bag that I’ve thrown my swimsuit, fins, and running shoes in. Time for a much needed upgrade!
Recently I was given the opportunity to try out a new gym bag by Fitmark. I was able to go to their website and select a bag. I chose the Sport Tote in purple. I was super excited about this bag because it was not only purple but a) cute and stylish b) a good size and c) had all sorts of different compartments for all my different gear. It’s got a separate shoe bag too, which is nice because I hate when the bottom of my shoes gets all over my other gear. It’s gross and I end up keeping my shoes outside of my bag when this happens. That or it makes a huge mess.
I also really love the shape and color of this bag. It’s super cute and feminine, which most gym bags are not. I also love the shoulder strap because it’s long enough to wear across my shoulder. It’s not small, but it’s not gigantic either so it can fit a fair amount of stuff including my work clothes for the day. I even started switching out our old soccer bag for this new beauty. I tried to get a picture of it for you all on the soccer field, but instead I got photobombed by our team captain!
Recently my husband and I went to the mountains to celebrate New Year’s and I took this bag with me as a separate bag in addition to my suitcase. It worked out great! I am pretty picky when it comes to finding a gym bag and I loved this Fitmark bag from the moment I saw it online. I even featured it in my Holiday Gift Guide for Fitness Lovers. If you got a gift card for the holidays and looking to get a new gym bag you might want to consider this one. Or if not, you’re in luck because in honor of this Fitmark Bag Review I’ve teamed up with the folks at Fitmark to offer all my awesome readers a chance to win their very own purple sport tote bag just like the one I have. So go ahead and enter below and we can be twinsies!
What about you? What kind of bag do you use for the gym? Post in the comments and let me know.
This would be perfect for my gym outings…right now I’m using a little conference tote. It doesn’t zip so if it’s raining/snowing, my stuff gets wet.
I was using a conference tote before this, too! At least we are resourceful 😉
I have so any bags but none as functional as this looks! It doesn’t look bulky which I need since I carry at least 2 other bags along with it to work!
Kris – this bag could probably hold everything for you. I took it to Vegas with me recently and it fit my laptop bag AND my purse.

I use a Lululemon tote — the “vinyasa to vino” bag that I bought SUPER cheap at the LA Warehouse sale. I’d love to win this though, my mom needs a gym bag!
Oooo, nice! How was that Lululemon warehouse sale?
Samantha V. says
Since I currently take my handbag to the gym right now (don’t laugh) this would come in very handy for packing all my essentials for working out.
You know what’s great about this gym bag? It kind of looks like a handbag 😉
Lisa (@lisalivingwell) says
I really need a new gym bag because my current one is ripping and it was a freebie! I’d use this when I go to my YMCA or to yoga classes outside of my gym.
Good luck, Lisa!
I have a sad, beat up, stained gym bag that the cats have been nesting in for years. I could totally use an upgrade!!
Sounds like you need an upgrade for sure. Good luck!
Maria H. says
Great review! A new gym bag would do this girl good- just discovered Fitmark and would love to upgrade my current gym bag!
Fitmark is so awesome! Good luck to you 🙂
Carla S says
I would take it to the gym everyday.My current gym bag is a lunch bag for kids.I love these bags.
A lunch bag? Does that fit all your stuff? I may need to see a pic of this! Tweet one to me 🙂
Carla S says
I put small towels in it and a shirt.Everything pops out when I pull one thing out. 🙂
I am like you, I am picky on my gym bag and still haven’t found one I love. This one looks just perfect I would love to have this new bag!
Good luck, Dana! It is a really great bag.
Jeremy Pepper says
Is it gross that I just throw my wet stuff in my computer bag? Yah, I go straight from work (or in the middle of the day) and go easy that way.
Kind of gross. Hope you don’t fry your computer doing that 😛
What a cute bag! Doesn’t look like a typical gym tote. I’d love to have one of these. I currently use a mesh tote bag that is about 10 years old and ripped to shreds HA!
I know, it’s actually cute and stylish. Two words I wouldn’t use to normally describe a gym bag but I would here!
Simi Silva says
Wow what a beautiful gym bag and in my fav color – PURPLE! It’s difficult finding the right kind of gym bag, but this Fitmark gym bag is the bomb! Hope I win so I’ll be stylin’ at the gym and can show it off to everyone too. 🙂
Good luck, Simi! It is a pretty awesome bag that’s for sure.
Simi Silva says
Thank you Lindsey! Hope I win this awesome bag!! 🙂
I have a purple one but you can never have too many purple bags 🙂
Oooo, what kind of purple bag do you have?
It would be perfect to take to yoga class!! Too cute!!
I would say the only addition I’d make to this bag is a strap for a yoga mat. Then it’d be beyond perfect!
I’d use the bag for my long runs to keep an extra change of clothes and a snack.
Nice! Are you currently training for anything?
Great review I was wondering how these bags were. Thanks!
Thanks, Amanda! I hope it was helpful.
My current gym back doesn’t fit much and this looks way roomier!
It’s pretty roomy! I could easily use it as a weekend bag.
Neal Allen says
I wear a simple pull string bag its light and out my heart rate monitor, protein snacks, towel , water bottle in it can be hard with no slots everything in one big space. Need to try something new this 2014 a upgrade for sure.
This bag has lots of compartments and zippered pockets which is great. I agree one big space is hard especially with different components and electronics.
Vanessa Martinez says
I’m just starting out so I don’t have a gym bag/tote yet. This would be perfect.
Hi Vanessa – this would be a great bag for you. What does your current workout routine look like?
Vanessa Martinez says
I get out of work and go straight to a local diner with my four kids where they have Zumba classes. We then go home and do our Sally Up’s (squats, knee ups, step up butt kicks to the Sally Up song) and if I’m not dying by then we go walking for about 2 miles.
Vanessa Martinez says
I usually just have my workout clothes loose in my car and take them off in my hand and change in the bathroom before Zumba.
jill barville says
Too cute. My bag is one of those cheap string strap backpacks that don’t hold or separate, though that makes it sound like a bad bra.
This would be a big improvement.
LOL. I think I need to see a picture of this bag!
Taylor Closet says
I would used this bag daily going to the gym.
It’s a great daily gym bag that’s for sure 🙂
LOL…I carry a book tote bag…it looks silly but Thats just what I have to use.
Not silly at all! Silly would be not using a bag at all 🙂
I have a repurposed reusable grocery bag. Real classy, huh?
I was pretty much using the same thing until recently so I completely understand!
Wendy Flynn Del Monte says
I need a stylish bag to help keep me motived to get my butt to the gym. All my spin stuff can fit in there!
It will fit all your spin stuff and then some. Yesterday I had my laptop bag, my purse, and workout shoes in there!
I’d use it for my morning trips to the YMCA-triathlon training means I’m there every day! 🙂
Nice! What event are you training for?
tom wing says
Looks like a great bag to me…
It’s pretty fantastic.
I love purple & have been ahopping for a gym bag a few weeks.
trichica- Daniela says
I use a rucksack made by Goruck
Healthy Running Mom says
I just joined a gym, so it’d be perfect for me to take with me to the gym!
I need this!
J Marie Thompson says
just started crossfit classes. i would love to use this stylish bag.
I’ve been using a backpack. This Fitmark bag would be great because it has an insulated liner that would keep my water bottle cold and keeps the bottle upright.
I love it and I want to win the giveaway.i need something forv when I go into the hospital for my kidney transplant.
