    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0005]
    An increasing number of people are taking part in physical exercise activities today. Many people enjoy exercising both indoors and outdoors, but have a problem keeping their valuable personal items, such as keys, wallets, cellular phones and money, safe while exercising. Exercise facilities often provide lockers and lock boxes that are used to store valuable items. It is common for items to be left behind or stolen when kept in these places. Also, when people are exercising outside they commonly place their valued items on the ground or even in the hands of a trusted friend, only to have the items stolen or misplaced. Another problem encountered when exercising is having to carry a towel to wipe sweat from your face and hands while exercising. During some exercising where it is necessary to grip bars or weights with your hands you must leave your towel on the floor, which may result in getting the towel dirty or misplaced.
