Fitness Must Haves
Working out can either be something you love to do or something you have to peel yourself out of your bed to do. Whether you are a regular gym-goer or a workout beginner, there are super cool products on the market to help keep you motivated AND fit! These are the BEST fitness must haves to pack in your gym bag or to keep in your home gym.
It is never a bad time to set a goal to better yourself, but I know how hard it can be to get started. It can sometimes feel even harder to keep going than it is to start! I have a bachelor’s in Exercise Science, and I STILL find myself having to get creative to stay motivated!

Fitness Must Haves
This Vooray gym bag is perfect for those who don’t want to lug a huge duffel to their workout! It is smaller than a standard duffle and comes with a shoe compartment & a wet-gear pocket! Bonus points for having super cute patterns.
These Maven Thread brand headbands are INCREDIBLE! Not only are they cute, but they are also no-slip & sweat-wicking. These headbands are literally designed for you to have the best workout of your life, and I can’t recommend them enough.
A good water bottle is ESSENTIAL! This is non-negotiable. If you are working out you need to stay hydrated during your exercise as well as throughout your entire day, and this water bottle will get you through it all!
I handpicked this yoga mat specifically! It is eco-friendly, non-slip, and it comes with a carrying case. It also comes in a ton of different colors!
These versa gripps are a must have if grip strength is something you’re working on. They will help you grip the weight you’re working with and will help all those pulling exercises that are hindered by a weak grip!
This dumbbell set is perfect for the first addition to your home gym! They also have a few different weight options to choose from.
I hate to be that girl, but AirPods really changed my workout experience for the best. I use them to workout, walk my dog, run, do yoga, meditate, etc. If you’ve never used some, they stay put in your ear much better than you would think, and are 1000000% worth the splurge!
This set-of-5 resistance bands that each have their own resistance level. I love the color scheme and they’re perfect to stash in your gym bag so you don’t have to worry about sharing!
A stability ball is perfect for your home gym & more! With the increasing rate of people working from home, switch out your desk chair with a stability ball for a few hours a day to help develop your core and posture when you’re not working out.
This scale will help you track your BMI, weight, and body composition throughout your fitness journey. It has an app that tracks your body fat percentage and can help motivate you to reach your goals!
If you don’t already have a smartwatch, a Fitbit is perfect to help you track your fitness progress throughout your workout and your day. It tracks your steps, heart rate, distance, calories burned, and more! A watch like this is essential for keeping me motivated throughout the day and throughout my workout.
This foam roller feels amazing between your shoulder blades and down your spine. It will help break up scar tissue that is created through your workouts (and is totally normal, by the way). It also helps to prevent herniated disks, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
This pilates bar kit has completely changed the game when it comes to working out at home! It comes with resistance bands, foot loop bands, a yoga ball, and a full-size exercise bar. This set will help you target nearly every muscle in your body!
