If you read my blog yesterday, you know how much I love the new year! I feel refreshed, energized, and ready to implement healthy changes. If you follow me on social media, you also know how important exercise is to me. It keeps me fit – physically, mentally, and emotionally. I have found that the routine of working out 5 days a week is what my body and mind need. Typically, my week consists of three days of strength training, two days of pilates, and a weekend of rest and recovery. I have found that this combination is what works best for my body. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite activewear pieces (many of these I wear daily), as well as some home gym essentials. Whether you are just beginning your fitness journey or have been exercising for years, these items are my tried and true must haves!
Ab Roller Wheel Kit | Pilates Set | Bala Bangles Weights | Kettlebell | Wireless Earbuds | Glute Ham Roller | Dumbbell Stand | Resistance Bands | Blogilates Loop Bands | The Complete Home Gym Kit | Mirror | Hip & Core Bands
This pilates set is a great place to either begin or continue your pilates journey! It includes a pilates ring (this ring is fabulous for shaping your body, thighs, and booty… you can purchase the ring HERE), mini exercise ball, and 3 resistance bands. I use this set every time I do pilates… easy to use and so functional!
GLUTE HAM ROLLER
If you’re looking for a tool that targets your glutes and hamstrings, this is the thing for you! My trainer has added this tool in to add a bit more “burn” to glute bridges and it has truly become one of my favorite workouts. After using the Glute Ham Roller, you will never do glute bridges any other way. This roller can also be used for a variety of ab, shoulder, leg and chest exercises… such a fabulous all-in-one tool.
AB ROLLER WHEEL KIT
This kit includes everything you need for an incredible at home total-body workout: Ab Roller, Push-Up Bars, Resistance Bands, and Knee Pads. These items can be used together or separately to target different areas of the body. Easy to assemble and store… I absolutely swear by this kit!
ADJUSTABLE DUMBBELL SET
Dumbbells are a staple in most of my workouts, and different exercises require a different level of weight. This adjustable dumbbell set is the perfect home gym equipment. It takes up less space than your traditional dumbbell stand, and allows you to easily move up or down in 10 pound increments.
Define Jacket | Slim-Fit Tank | Nike Sports Bra | Nike Running Shoes | High-Neck Corset Slim Tank | 7/8 Leggings | Ultra High-Rise Workout Shorts | Skort | Crewneck | Black Leggings | Hat | TechLoom Slides | Socks | Clifton 8 Running Shoes
HOKA CLIFTON 8 RUNNING SHOES
For as long as I can remember, I have been loyal to Nike sneakers (which I still love and wear outside the gym). However with age, my body has grown to need more support from a platform on my sneakers… leading me to try the HOKA Clifton 8 Running Shoes. I’ve worn these for a little over 8 months and I absolutely SWEAR by these sneakers! The positive impact HOKA’s have had on my shin splints, knee, and back pain is immeasurable… I could not recommend these more!
TechLoom SlidesThe APL TechLoom Slides are truly my favorite slides. They are extremely comfortable, and offer the perfect amount of arch support. I wear these before and after pilates, running errands, and even around the house… simply fabulous!
