Happy Friday! I wanted to write this post to to share all the things I use for working out. When I’m packing my gym bag the night before, I put my workout and work outfits in a bag with EVERYTHING needed so I have no excuse to not get out of bed and go! Writing about makeup products I love always inspires new looks, so I’m hoping writing about workout gear will inspire me to go really hard at the gym.
Wireless headphones / Once you go cord- free, you will not go back. I love not worrying about my headphones ripping out of my ear if my phone tumbles off the stair stepper, or awkwardly positioned when I’m on a weights machine. I always thought wireless earbuds were expensive but nope. 🙂
Waterbottle / This might just be a Northwest thing, but Hydroflasks are the shit. I have a Swell bottle and barely use it since getting my Hydro. Swells don’t fit normal sized ice cubes and you can’t use a straw lid or even a pop top… not okay! My other favorite bottle is the typical Starbucks tumbler cup- drinking out of a straw always helps me take down way more water.
Pre-workout / Right now I use caffeine and BCAA capsules, but I used to be really into C4. I’m on the hunt for a good new pre-workout that doesn’t make me feel like I have ants crawling under my skin, but helps me focus during the whole workout. Give me recommendations please!
Dove deodorant spray / This weirdly makes putting on deodorant enjoyable… The only thing stopping me from switching to Native aluminum free deodorant is honestly the fun spray- on application.
Sports Bra / Target sports bras are affordable and such great quality. They are definitely the style I reach for the most when I’m packing my gym bag!
Legging / I was unsure about buying leggings on Amazon, fearing constantly yanking them up and see through-ness. These wowed me and are the perfect fit. They remind me a lot of Old Navy workout gear, which is great quality! They come in every single color and I’m obsessed with the bright red. My other favorite workout leggings are from Victoria’s Secret.
Headbands / Since I try to go multiple days without washing my hair, I try to block the sweat from soaking into it as much as possible. Somehow I lose hair bands like crazy, so a multi pack is a necessity.
