Gym bags are high on utility and are very stylish to look at as well.

Given the hectic lifestyle we lead today, gym subscriptions going up is to be expected. The work-life imbalance, stress and dependence on processed food have led to very unhealthy health indicators - obesity, blood pressure, diabetes to name a few, that have taken a toll. While it is ideal to ensure that lifestyle parameters, we just mentioned, are stabilised naturally, the reality is far from it. What one can do is work towards negating some of the bad effects by exercising and workouts that can be helpful to some extent. That perhaps explains the hike in gym subscriptions and mushrooming of gymnasiums all across India.
