Win a Free Go Caddy: The New Compact Exercise Bag

If you’re like me, when you head to the gym, you want your experience to be as simple and quick as possible. One common annoyance is finding an efficient and handy way to carry your water bottle, car keys, cell phone and membership card, without lugging in your huge purse or clunky gym bag. Those days of lost keys, misplaced gym passes and water bottles left on the treadmill console are long gone, thanks to the Go Caddy.

This past December, the makers of the Go Caddy, an ingenious slender tote and water bottle holder, sent me a sample of their compact device. I tested it out at the gym just before the holidays. After using this handy efficient mini-bag that fits over your shoulder, I was pretty sold and now I’m using it not just for the gym but when I’m running errands and don’t want to carry my huge purse with me.

Here’s the skinny on the Go Caddy:

The Go Caddy is a compact tote that is equipped with tons of little compartments to easily fit all of your essential items that are normally spilling out in your purse, gym bag or wallet. It’s made from MicroFiber that can be cleaned on instant in case it drops in a pile of dirty snow or gets a splash of coffee on it.

The Go Caddy holds a variety of water bottles and it has a discrete security hidden interior pocket so that your credit cards and dollar bills are kept safe and stashed away. It also has a key holder, an elastic back pouch that is spacious enough to slide your cell phone, camera or glasses into and an adjustable strap.

The tote also has a water bottle sleeve so your water is kept cool, despite the steamy temperature of the workout room. It really is the perfect little workout bag. But you can also use the Go Caddy for a hike, travel or a day trip. It’s super easy to travel with and more than forgiving when it comes to getting it dirty. It comes in always fashionable black and in pink.

The Go Caddy was created by Vicki Forster, a longtime fitness enthusiast who became so tired of carrying her belongings with her – and losing them – as she bounced back and forth from home to an aerobics class to the weight room.

This would be really great to have for a quick trip to the gym when I don't need to carry clothing etc.

I'm always juggling my keys, etc, so this would be a great way to keep everything together.

it would be so much easier to take to zumba with me, also I forget to take my water bottle with me and this way I would not forget it, because I would have it with my car keys.

Everytime I go to the gym, I have to pack a diaper bag (they have a nursery for my 2 year old), my water bottle, my membership card, and my gym bag (which is a little on the big side). Then I have to pack my toddler and all that stuff from the van to the gym in a pretty big parking lot. To say that this bag would make that load a lot lighter, would be an understatement! :)

I think this would make my workout easier because is small and quant and I would be less likely to forget it. Also I could carry my water in it so instead of forgetting my water and buying a soda I could keep from adding calories into my system

It would be a great asset. It is big enough just for the neccessities needed to take with you for a workout.

I currently carry a large bag in the gym and this would be so much more convenient!

This would definitely save me from loosing my keys. It would make it so much easier.

This would be so cool for me to have because I wouldn't have to worry about leaving my water/phone/card/keys anywhere - all that stuff would be together in my bag!

This tiny bag is perfect for me EVERY DAY, not just for the gym or yoga. I carry a lunch to work, and balancing a purse and lunch bag is a struggle. This would be perfect for the necessities - water bottle, cell phone, keys & ID. I don't really need much else. OK, maybe a lipstick. :-)

This would be great for me, I am a medical student and constantly running around the hospital. I can't carry a big bag but still need my water. Perfect solution.

As much as I'd love this for me, It would really be perfect for my daughter to use while she is at school to go to her workouts.

I am into bags and trinkets for the gym and this wol ensure I wouldn't leave anything behind like I have in the past.
