What’s In Your Gym Bag: The Swimmer

Birchbox staffer Claudio swims up to 3,000 yards to start his day, sometimes following up with a complete gym routine. As such, he is smartly stocked up on supplies to combat the damaging effects of chlorine and sweat. See how our resident swimmer packs for his rigorous regimen.

1. TM1985 Canvas Dopp Kit

Perfect for the gym, travel, or home. The waterproof canvas material protects the stuff inside from my wet swimwear.

2. GO247 Styling Cream

Allows for fast application and an all-day, casual style.

3. Hanz de Fuko Natural Shampoo

I always wash my hair after a swim. This is a great natural product to combat the pool water that dries out my hair.

4. Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer

Again, the pool water can have harsh effects, and quite the opposite of hydrating my skin. This moisturizer is the remedy to that.

5. Raw Materials Sport Fix Body Spray

The scent control ensures freshness all day, which isn’t easy on its own since I head to work after a morning workout.

6. Game Day Shower Gel: Body + Facial Cleanser

One product for a clean start to the day. This takes care of the chlorine smell from the pool and wakes up my skin like a shot of caffeine.

7. Speedo Vanquisher Goggles

A necessity for any serious swimmer.

8. TYR Men's 4" Nylon Trainer

These give me little resistance and great mobility in the water.

9. Speedo Pull Buoy

Tuck this between your legs to keep them afloat while working on upper body strength.

10. Catalyst Brites Paddles

These go on your hands and improve your stroke by increasing resistance and making your back and shoulders work harder.
