    Ah, January! The month when gym attendance spikes and the locker rooms are full of people grumbling about the surge of New Year's resolvers crowding up the place.


    Whether you're a longtime gym-thlete or a bright-eyed newb, you should consider upgrading your gym bag (aka sweaty clothes sack) to the Everest Gym Bag, a sporty duffel with pockets — and five-star Amazon reviews — galore.,

    In addition to its main compartment, the Everest bag has two front pouches, a water bottle holder, and a wet pocket (which quarantines your gross wet clothes from your nice dry ones).

    More than 1,000 reviewers gave this bag four or more stars, praising its spaciousness, pocket wealth, price (under $25), workmanship, and — of course — ability to hold pickleball equipment.

    "Quality design and workmanship in a bag sized perfectly for pickleball or the gym! The wet pocket on the end holds my court shoes and soiled gym clothes and even has a vented exterior wall. Netted pockets for quick access hold my big cell phone and the zippered pockets hold a good quantity of stuff. Top access opens for easy access to my paddles, balls, rule books, extra gear. Zippers are of very good quality, well designed and all workmanship is excellent." —B Bob the Pickleball Man

    "LOVE this gym bag. The multiple pockets are great. The material is not too stiff so it's easier to place/remove from the gym lockers. I honestly didn't think I'd care for the inside pocket for wet gym gear, but have learned to appreciate it and now use it all the time. No longer need to carry an extra plastic bag for my wet gear. Will definitely buy this bag again in the future." —Amazon Customer

    "Love this gym bag! It has two outside pockets to hold my supplements and my toiletries for showering at the gym. Absolutely love the shoe pocket. I keep my gym sneakers in there or you can use it for dirty gym clothes. Love the center pocket for holding your water bottle/protein shake container. Very well made and the perfect size." —David B

    Seriously, stop schlepping around your gym shorts in a plastic bag. It's no way to live.

    And just in case you're thinking, Sure, this bag sounds okay for *amateurs*, but what about for a professional fit person like me? I'll turn it over to Amazon user Jessica:

    "I am so glad I have purchased this gym bag. It looks cute (I got the blue and black), and it holds just about anything an instructor could ask for. Lots of pockets (that alone won me over), and space for me to keep about two outfits, three pairs of shoes, and my electronics in easily found locations. My only suggestion is to add attachment straps (for a yoga mat or Pilates ring) or make the bag just a touch bigger." —Jessica

    Listen to Jessica! She's an instructor of some kind!

    Now all that's left to do is actually, you know, exercise.
