More often than not, we need the additional push to get us out the door to work out. However, if you're anything like us, nothing can spark some fitness inspo like a cute outfit or an attention-stealing gym bag.

Ladies, it's essential to have a gym bag designed for women that's tailored to your needs: If you're going for a yoga session, you need a bag that'll secure your mat in place; going to spin class requires a bag that stores your shoes separately from your wallet and water bottle, and so forth. We know the struggle, so we found the most fun and functional gym bags for women to take you from work to workout.

No matter what your workout preference, the gym bags for women below will be suited to whatever's getting you sweating.
