There is no better feeling than finishing a Zumba class, resetting the weight machine or hopping off the treadmill after a great workout. It brings a smile to my face and it just makes the rest of my day so much better. I feel good about myself when I work out and the natural high of finishing a great workout is like no other feeling in the world – and it all starts with the right gear.
I like being comfortable during a workout because when everything is in place I work out that much harder. My gym bag is packed with all the head to toe essentials that I need for a good workout from start to finish – and surprisingly they don’t have to cost a fortune.
3 essentials for a great workout:
Sweet hydration. I am not a huge fan of water, but I can’t get through a workout without it. I add flavor packets to it sweeten up. My favorites right now are Snapple To Go and Skinnygirl Daily.
The perfect lip balm. I absolutely hate having dry lips any time – but especially while working out. I need a lip balm that can last at least an hour and greasy lip gloss just won’t do. My favorite hydrating lip balm is The One Stick in Girl Crush by Be a Bombshell Cosmetics.
A cute and functional outfit. I know that we get sweaty when we work out, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be cute at the same time. I order my workout gear from Ellie because they offer complete outfits starting at one low price.
