As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

Gym bags - most everyone has one. But what you will find inside will vary from lifter to lifter. The purpose of this thread is to peek inside YOUR gym bag. Why? Because, quite frankly, I find it interesting in its own right. Secondly, because this has great potential in giving others sudden flashes of "hey, that would be really useful to have in MY bag!".

Not only that, but I find this interesting enough to warrant some more free T-shirts; one Official Logo Tee will be awarded to two (2) RANDOMLY drawn participants. Simply put, everyone has an equal chance of winning a shirt NO MATTER WHAT'S IN THE BAG. So please, don't stuff your bag with stuff you don't generally carry with you to the gym. To be eligible to win, you need to submit your entry by September 1st, 2007 following these rules:

  • 1. Take a photo of your gym bag, preferably so that most contents are visible (DON'T take a photo of your closed bag!!). You may spread them out around the bag if you want. Scale the image down to a maximum of 450x450 pixels (there is also a 128kb file size limit, but that should not be a problem). If you don't know how to do this, please send your image to and I'll take care of it for you.

  • 2. Post a reply to this thread with a listing of the contents of your gym bag (feel free to be as vocal as you want) AND post the image as an attachment.

PLEASE SUBMIT ONLY ENTRIES IN THIS THREAD! Discussion is encouraged, but should go into the comment thread. Participation after September 1st is also welcome, but that is the deadline for being eligible to win a shirt. In the interest of spreading the love more evenly, those who have received a complimentary free shirt before this date will not be included in the draw (but don't let that stop you from submitting your bag, we're still interested!!!!). The winners will be announced by September 5th and will be asked to privately submit the address they want the shirt shipped to. If an address has not been received by September 15th, I reserve the right to draw a new winner. Only one entry per member please!

Good luck! Eagerly awaiting your bag...  Grin

EDIT: The competition has ended, but the more bags the merrier!

So here's what's in my bag o'goodies.  Smiley

- My shoes; a pair of oooold Otomix gym shoes. They work, don't smell too horrendous and their still in good shape.
- My shorts of Virtualmeet fame. Yes, the same one's I had on the first time. Still use them, since they're comfy. And they don't smell too funny neither.
- A silver tank top. Usually I wear some kind of tank top to the gym, because I sweat real easy these days, and I can't wear a t-shirt since I'd be soo sweaty. And then I'd smell funny.
- My trusty bottle of Ed. It's an energy drink (hence the "ed"-name, clever huh?) and it comes in three flavors: regular, light and red berries. Yummy...  Wink
- Then of course there's the shaker. Can't leave home without one. Or two, depending on where you're going. They don't smell funny either, because I wash them.
- The training diary aka notebook. I've always kept a record of my workouts, so now I have records dating back to 1993, if you can believe that. And no, I haven't trained continuously since then, but still. A lot of workouts...

Anyway, that's what's in my gymbag! Cool

Now lessee who else dares spill his/her bag!  Grin

Anything is possible, except maybe skiing through a revolving door.

What's in my gym bag?  Well, I usually have my shoes, my training log with chicken-scratchings in it, an allen wrench to tighten the dumbells that won't tighten all the way by hand, my own clamps (my gym only has 2 pair), elbow and wrist wraps, chalk, an anatomy book (new this month - makes me look smart  Grin), some Tiger Balm, and whatever else falls into it of of my dresser in the AM. 

Although not in there now or in there intentionally back then, but one time there was a pair of my wife's underwear in the leg of my sweats.  I didn't notice that they were hangin out by my shoe, but my friends did.  At least they were black and not bright pink or something.
