Our workouts are in full swing because beach body season is here, and it’s in full swing. And today I’m going to show you some of the things that I never go to the gym without.
I don’t know why – but I really like lists and “must-have” guides. They are very fun to write because I love sharing my thoughts with others.
Alrighty, here are 10 of my favorite things that you should totally consider getting:
1. Bose SoundSport Earbuds
If you know me, I can’t go to the gym without music. Nothing kills a workout faster than hearing 80’s music on repeat over and over again. Though I have to admit, Smooth Criminal is a guilty pleasure of mine :).
I recently upgraded my standard-issue iPhone headphones to these Bose SoundSport In-Ear headphones.
Seriously, these things rock. You can get them in three different colors. I really like bright colors like this so that’s an added bonus! They are waterproof to withstand even the sweatiest of workouts, and you can control your music directly through the cord. The earbuds stay in your ears even if you accidentally pull on them, and it takes a really good yank to actually get them out.
I usually don’t get that excited about technolg y-relatedstuff, but I am REALLY excited about this one. It’s a total must-have. Check them out here.
2. Adidas Fearless Training Bag
Okay, every Fit Girl needs a good training bag, right? She needs a place to put her shoes, workout clothes, shaker bottle… And why not make it a CUTE bag too?
So this one definitely fits the bill. Not only is this Adidas Fearless club bag totally cute, but it is the ideal size to fit anything you need and has multiple openings. Totally worth checking out. Take a closer look here.
3. Inspirational Tanks
Every once in a while things get tough. Motivation wanes. And we don’t feel like moving forward. Meh. The bed is sooo much more comfortable, we think.
Who can give us the kick in the butt we need? If we don’t have someone to literally do that, maybe a shirt can help? I’m a big sucker for a good quote and a workout tank is a great place to put it. When a workout starts getting especially tough, just one look in the mirror and you want to keep going. Push through!
Great gift for any fit girl who wants to stay motivated in and out of the gym. Check these Inspirational Tanks here.
4. Tights or Yoga Pants
I guess these are considered tights but I have been wearing them as yoga pants… these pants are SO comfortable, I couldn’t even believe it when I put them on. I wanted to LIVE in them. And… I kind of did. Haha.
I have a ton so pairs, but these are my favorites :
NIKE Legend 2.0 Swift Tgt Cpri – Hudson Bay
These are real head-turners and are very comfortable to work out in. Get them on Amazon.
Women’s Nike Pro Core Compress Tights – Amazon
These are great for running or to use as a base layer when hiking or camping. They only run you $40 on Amazon. Very affordable and worth every penny!
I wore them to work with a cute blazer. And I work them around the house. They are just so comfortable, super cute, and flattering on any shape. I am absolutely in love.
5. A sporty long-sleeve top
Personally, I like to wear long-sleeved tops and just more slouchy tops when I work out. I don’t like things to cling to me but probably because I’m not the fittest person on the block. But that’s fine.
So when I first put on this long-sleeve I wasn’t sure if I’d like it or not. I’ve usually considered any sporty women’s tops to be too form fitting and not very flattering on my body. So I was very pleasantly surprised to find this top to be VERY comfortable on me… and I actually liked wearing it. Definitely worth checking out.
6. Healthy Vitalicious Snack
After searching for alternatives to curb sugar and my ever-present sweet tooth, I came across my new favorite company, Vitalicious. Vitalicous sells snacks that have no preservatives and contain vital nutrients like fiber and protein to power you through the day.
If you are looking for a healthy snack, check Vitalicious out. As an added bonus, first time customers will get a free pack of Harvest corn Energyloaf bread on orders of $79 or more.
7. Fitbit Flex
I am in love with my Fitbit Flex. At first, I thought it was stupid to wear something that my phone can track and the wristband wasn’t worth the money. Boy was I wrong.
This bad boy not only tracks my steps, but also monitors my calories burned, distance traveled, active steps, and also my sleep patterns. If you are looking to step your fitness game up, a Fitbit is for you. Find out more here.
8. Gatorade Water Bottle
Sometimes I take advantage of the little things. I tend to overlook my favorite gym accessory without even realizing it. My trusty Gatorade water bottle goes with me everywhere I go, and does a mighty fine job, I must say.
These 32 ounce waterbottles are just the right size, and sure to quench even the thirstiest of gymgoers. Definitely worth buying one, or two, or three.
