I’ll admit, fitness is not something I’m great at.
Besides dancing, my ideal life includes a lot of laying down and eating mangoes.
BUT. Fitness is super important. My friend Noelle is really the expert on all that jazz and if you’re just getting started, I recommend checking her website here.
I’ve recently had the chance to try a couple of new fitness products that I really liked.
Super helpful and motivating, these help make working out more convenient and efficient. Check them out!
#1 Go Pockets
Okay, so this is one of the best idea EVER.
What is the deal with women’s workout attire and not having properly sized pockets??
Like I’m going to take my key off of my full key chain or leave my phone at home as I traipse around the city?
Smart phones and credit cards are real and we need to carry them comfortably, but women’s workout pants usually seem more designed to cling as tightly to one’s butt as possible, no room for pockets.
It’s just not practical.
But now there’s Go Pocket. They use a strong adhesive to adhere temporarily to your workout clothes, giving you a perfect pocket to place things in.
They don’t last forever so you aren’t stuck with them, and the adhesive won’t ruin your clothes. They are also easily removed when you don’t want them anymore or want to try a different color.
They are also washable and lasts through several wash cycles.
They can hold your phone, keys, cards, anything you need for your workout.
They come in black and all kinds of fun colors and patterns, changed every season!
#2 This Fitness Tracker
Okay, so you probably have one of these already. It seems like everyone does.
But if you don’t, you need to hop on this train!
The Fitbit Alta HR is the best fitness tracker I’ve used.
It’s a bit pricier than other brands but it is definitely worth it. Heart rate monitoring, step counting, food tracking, and lots of fun calculations to see where your fitness is at.
It also tracks sleep (which is just as important as fitness!) and I love that it can help me identify if I’m not sleeping as well. That way I know to kick back a little if I’m overdoing it.
Plus, since so many people have it, you can always find friends to motivate and inspire you to hit those step goalz.
And you have to love the fact that you can change the band.
I mean, looking good is life so… (I love these bands to match it all here)
And if you have prime you can have one in 2 days!
So just take the leap and do it! Find them here.
#3 These am-ah-zing glass bottles
After working out, strenuous cardio or weight lifting exercise, recovery is important. A good carb with a high quality protein is important.
I get sick of constantly mixing my shakes in the same bottle, washing it out, and remixing it again.
Instead, I bought this set of 6 glass bottles (no BPA, yay!) and I just make my protein shakes up in advance.
I leave them in the fridge or freezer until I need them and voila!
