Gym-baggin’ & packing for PDX made easy!

As many of you know, I’ll be making my way at the end of the month (6/27 to be exact) to PORTLAND, Oregon for Fitbloggin 2013! T minus 9 DAYS!!

What is Fitbloggin?

The FitBloggin’ Conference is for anyone who blogs about fitness, wellness, good food and a healthy lifestyle–regardless of where they are in their journey. Our attendees are a melting pot of fit-minded people. Some of us are on a mission to lose weight. Others are training for triathlons. We have gym rats and folks learning to run. We welcome vegetarians, vegans, and convenience food junkies alike. We may all be in different stage of fitness, but we all share one passion: To live a happy, healthy balanced life.
More than just another blogging conference, FitBloggin’ is all about the desire to use technology, blogging and social media to motivate, inspire and foster a culture of health and wellness. We strive to bring together bloggers from all walks of life to create a tightly connected group of men and women who care deeply about and are committed to spreading this passion for fitness. 

What am I looking forward to the most?
*Visiting PDX – I’ve never ever been and am stoked to see all it has to offer
* Trying New workouts…and giving you all the scoop on them!
*Learning more about blogging and social media
*MEETING BLENDS IRL! (oops – sorry, not sorry)

 I was introduced to an awesome bag, made by the folks at Livewell360, by my pal Lindsay as I get ready to pack up for PDX AND have been using this lovely bag already for my [just about daily] gym visits!

Old gym bag vs. new Livewell 360 bag – that old bag NEVER fit under the seat on planes and was WAY too bulky
Check out the handy yoga mat straps! (Steph & I at Yoga in the Park)
*I purchased this Luxx Livewell360 bag on my own, with a provided discount and offered to do a review. Opinions in this post are my own.
I’ll be sure to do a post next week as I actually pack for Portland – that’ll be an interesting one – and show you guys the features in a Vlog!
Check out more about LiveWell360 and their philosophy HERE and also ‘meet’ the creator herself – she’s pretty much a genius!
What are your gym bag must-have-features?
Who’s going to be at Fitbloggin? Or wants to sneak into my Luxx bag?

    Kat you know Im always sneaking into your luggage so I can come along. *let’s think back to myrtle beach when I spent the night in your suitcase* 🙂 … Portland sounds like a blast remind me to be like you when I grow up. I want to travel the world. I’m looking for a new gym bag with a lot of compartments and doesnt weigh me down… so Im looking forward to your review. My current gym bag is causing me more neck and back pain than I already have :(… looking forward to your review!

    Ekkk, the 27th will be here in no time! My gym bag necessities are pretty standard–face wash, deodorant, etc.–and I always have an emergency snack just in case I can’t eat for a while. 🙂

    That looks like a great gym bag. I love bags that have the shoe compartment to keep my smelly shoes away from my clothes.

    I keep hearing about Fitbloggin’- it sounds AMAZING. I’m sure you’re going to have a blast. I can’t wait to hear all about it. I’ve seen that bag on Lindsey’s blog – definitely looks good, although I honestly think G would have a coronary if I brought yet ANOTHER gym bag into the house. I have 4. And I actually use them all. Hmmmm…work out much??? 🙂

    I love fancy gym bags. Especially with a ton of pockets. I’m such a pocket snob. Have so much fun at Fitbloggin! That will be fun. Patrick and I are going to Portland in September so I’m excited to hear about your trip there.

    Fun fun! I wish I could go. Love that bag. For me I would like some pockets for storing smaller things so they don’t get lost in the abyss LOL

    Yes please! I need a bag like that for the gym, yoga studio, and traveling. I’m packing for RnR Seattle this weekend and can’t decide what to bring/none of my bags are the right size!
