Well, once upon a time people used to live in cottages located on hills, by a water body, surrounded by forest, fields and natural elements that will help them with living. After all, they did not have a fridge, tap, gas, electricity or packaged food. In fact, they hardly had anything. So they used to work. They used their body to do the toughest of a job too including washing, cooking, bringing water, laundry, etc. that too daily.
But not now anymore. We have every appliance that we need in our home. We do not need to work that hard. Also, we have freshly packaged frozen and fast food chains for feeding us anytime. Literary anytime be it 2 in the morning. It cost us a lot too. Not only money but also our health. That is why workout has become so important.

Carry These Things in Gym with You for Safety
When you make your body work it doe much more things. It is wise to be prepared for everything.
Water Bottles. Carry your own one. Thus it is hygiene, eco-friendly and keeps you hydrated all the way. Many gyms do provide water in an environment detrimental plastic bottles but having a reusable water bottle is the real thing of a grown-up.
Tissue Wipes. Tissue wipes are really good. After a sweat session, the face wipes will make you feel so refreshed and charged up and will also prevent acne breakout.
Something Light to Eat and Something with Sugar. Yes, sugar. Sometimes our body sugar level drops out of exhaustion and people may faint at those time, sugar solution, glucose, chocolate (my love!!) helps. Carrying one will help you and maybe save others life too. After a workout session, it is obvious to feel tired and hungry leading to hangry mode. So, eat something for darling.
Medicines. if you have any. Fully noted with dosages and how to, when to card included. The body does get tired, muscle, heart, lungs all wear out so you can any time fall victim of asthma, allergy or anything.
Towels. When you sweat you sweat from everywhere. Drops falling all over your face during the activities is annoying. So keep fresh clean towels with you.
Fresh Clothes, Socks, etc. do yourself and others a favor and take a bath as soon as possible after the gym. Why? Odor. Bacteria. Aching muscles. Relaxed mood. A nice and quick warm bath will get rid of bacteria preventing bad odor and soothing paining muscles.
Deodorant. In case you are not able to take a bath and still have to continue with the day get yourself a nice strong odor-fighting deo. But anyways do wipe yourself up with wiping towels. You will feel better.
Dry Shampoo. When can you not even take a bath how will you wash your hair? And how will your hair look the least bit of presentable? Dry shampoo will handle the hot mess and keep it chic.
Face Wash, Moisturizer, Balm. Wash your face no matter what with the water you have got or wipe either you will breakout. Apply SPF moisture and lip balm diligently.
Music. It helps a lot with moods. A piece of good music will influence your behavior a lot. Listening to nice energetic rhythmic music will pace you up and encourage you with the exercise routine. Headphones, earbuds, Bluetooth, mp3 your choice.
First Aid Kit, Muscle Rub, and Sprays. You never know what happens. It does not take much for an accident t happen. It is just a matter of second. A small pull in the ankle, calves, back is painful too and if not treated immediately it will worsen. That is why first aid is important. Pain relief spray, band-aid, bandages, antiseptic cream, sanitizer.
Locks. It sounds really bad but the act of thief can happen. Most gyms do provide lockers with built-in locker bit who knows. Having one of your own especially if there is something valuable is not a bad idea.
