Oh hey there friends! September is upon us, despite the 90 degree temps but I’m getting ready for some warm and fabulous fall recipes to share. For now, I wanted to do a blog post updating you on my favorite fitness equipment/apparel and accessories that I can’t live without. I hope you find some goodies that make your training efforts a bit more tolerable.
First things first… a watch. I’ve been through a lot (mainly Garmin’s) and I find it necessary for optimum training. I train by heart rate when doing cardio and this watch provides accurate data each workout.
Apple watch, stainless 42mm case with Milanese band. I’ve been using this watch for 9 months now and absolutely love it still. I love the Milanese band for work/casual wear and swap it out with my Nike band below when I train.
My band is black with white accents but here is a equally awesome band to work out in.
I bought these leggings after the Nordstrom sale and paid full price. When I received them, I noticed the ombre is VERY subtle. I was on the fence about keeping them until I tried them on. They are heavenly. I wear them every chance I get to the gym and for casual wear. These awesomely comfy tights are on sale right now at Nordstrom. I wear an XS for reference.
These are my go-to sneakers for years. The newer versions are incredibly comfy. And yes I’m very aware of the Nike controversy right now but as you know, I refuse to talk about politics on my blog so refrain from the emails or DM’s. These are currently my favorite sneakers and I’m merely sharing.
I’ve been using a similar Nathan water bottle for years while running and training at the gym. I love the zippered pouch for my wired headphones when I need them (at the gym). I always use my Vega Energizer in water for each workout.
I found this Lululemon wristlet this past weekend. I attached my keyring to the handle (for gym card etc.) and I’m in love. It fits my credit cards/license, money and my phone easily. Great small accessory I can tote around the gym from machine to machine easily without losing a beat. I even keep my air pods in there too!
Finally these! I’m a sucker for a good camo print and these don’t disappoint! Full length wunder under camo legging only available online. They are perfection with a white tee, boots and a denim jacket. With a big turtleneck sweater and boots. Or with a tank and sneakers for the gym. These are a must!
That’s a wrap folks. Time to get dinner started before everyone comes home. Happy September!
