Packing a gym bag the night before a workout makes me feel like the queen of organization and it unashamedly gets me more excited for the gym. But it's burned a hole in my purse trying to find and purchase all my gym essentials, hence why these Prime Day gym bag essential deals that are all under $20 are so impressive!

Workout accessories have a reputation for being pricey and if you've joined a gym recently, you'll probably have realised just how full a gym bag can get. In my training bag I carry, my best workout earbuds, padlock for a locker, barbell clamps and a pad (these are annoyingly hard to find even in some quieter gyms), towel, resistance bands and, last but very much not least, my trusty water bottle. Here's seven Prime Day water bottle deals to consider after reading this article.

But for now, if you've put off buying any of the items mentioned earlier and know they will make your life much easier and gym experience more seamless, then you should definitely take a look at the Prime deals happening below.
