    Where to put keys and gym card?? 25th Feb 19 at 8:48 AM
    Gym users...silly question! Absolute newbie!!

    Where do you keep your car keys? Gym card. No pockets. I could use a locker...but then u get a locker key!

    Do you literally carry your keys, machine to machine? Doesnt the rattle become annoying?? Doesn’t seem like anyone else does?

    Don't the lockers keys have some sort of pin/band you can attach to yourself?

    Otherwise, just carry them with you and pop them on the floor at each station. They'll only rattle if you kick them.

    What type of locker keys do they have? Some have pins you can attach to your clothes and some have a strap that you can wrap around your water bottle.

    I keep my gym card in my phone case! I do use a locker for everything else though, since I have a jacket and such. Honestly keeping the key is easier, you could even strap it around you water bottle if you don't want to keep it on you wrist

    My locker has a padlock on with a code - so I put everything in there and then don't carry anything but water, or I carry a jacket around with me which has a zip pocket.
    I get it though, not ideal to carry keys around with you everywhere.

    I use a locker so only have small key and phone for music.

    Most gym leggings have zip pocket in the back for the key, I also have a wristband with a zip pocket. That either goes on my wrist or around a water bottle.

    Have been known to stick them in my bra

    Most lockers nowadays require you to slot your membership card or a pound coin into the locker to lock the locker door

    If not, just Carry then around with you. Most cardio machines have little holders to put stuff in. Just don’t forget to pick them up!!!

    Half of the lockers at my gym are broken, so I tend to take a hooded jumper and put my stuff in the pockets of that, and just pop that next to whatever machine I am on

    The 1 I used you could use a padlock from the gym (cost £5 though) or your own, I kept keys etc in there.

    What you could do is just have your car key on you, maybe attached to your pass eg a lanyard in a pocket.

    Ha ha this is actually a sensible question!

    I put everything in a locker then I bought a clip that I put my key on and I pin it to my trousers.

    I also use a smartphone case. By the way, you can also create a one for yourself by watching any DIY video from Youtube. I also put my debit card, keys and gym card in that case. I made it at home according to my needs.

    If you drive to the gym you could keep your cards, wallet etc in your car but obviously out of sight, its 1 less thing to take into the gym.

    my gym has lockers (obviously) but they don't have locks, you bring your own padlock / buy one from the reception ... so you just get a combination padlock and try not to forget the number.

    I bought a pair of leggings specifically because there was a pocket at the back of the waistband for phone etc. Great - until I started doing floor exercises on my back... Oww!!!

    I use a locker and have a zip pocket on my shorts that the key goes in. I keep my phone on me and set it beside each machine as I go too.

    I put my gym card in the pack of my phone case! Then I never lose it! As for keys well I don't drive, so I just have a lanyard with my house key on it and put that with my towel. What are your locker keys like? Ours are similar to swimming ones so they just go on your wrist. You could fit a keyring loop to your phone case and put them on there.
