Lately we’ve been trying to get our bodies moving whenever we can. Whether we go on a long walk with a friend or participate in an online yoga class, we’ve found that getting a workout in each day helps us prioritize our overall wellbeing and keep our health in tip-top shape.
And now that spring is on the horizon, we’re looking forward to finding lots of new ways to stay active, especially outside in the fresh air. But as always, our number one priority when we’re working out is still making sure that we’re sweating in style. So that’s why on this week’s edition of Friday Faves, we’re sharing the 7 workout essentials that will not only help you meet your fitness goals, but that will also have you looking oh so good while doing so. Scroll on to see the products that have gotten our heart rates beating a little faster lately!
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated while working out. That’s why when we came across this bottle from Larq, we knew that we had to share it with you. Not only does it come in 5 super cute colors, but it’s also able to purify your water in under a minute. Yep, you read that right! This is the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle and purification system. It features a built-in UV light that automatically neutralizes up to 99.9% of harmful germs every two hours. So now you can confidently drink your water wherever you may go!
2. ASMC Yoga Mat:
Stretch in style with this yoga mat from designer Stella McCartney’s collaboration with Adidas. We love the fact that it comes in a pearl rose and maroon combo that’s sure to have you looking stunning at the studio. Plus, it features a high-traction grip that’ll prevent you from slipping and allow you to settle into your flow. So whether you’re perfecting your form in tree pose or improving your flexibility in downward dog, this is the yoga mat that you’ll definitely want to use to create the foundation underneath you.
Add a bit of resistance to your exercise routine with this set of weighted bangles from Bala. Whether you wear them on your wrist or your ankles, you can trust that they’ll enhance any workout – from yoga and pilates to running and aerobics and back again. The best part? They come in four different color variations, so they won’t force you to forgo fashion for function.
If there’s one thing we know for sure about working out, it’s that the perfect outfit undoubtedly has the power to keep you motivated. And The Tessa Top from Beach Riot is definitely cute enough to have you running a little faster and working a little bit harder to reach your fitness goals. It’s made with ultra soft ribbed fabric, as well as thick straps that’ll offer you some extra support while you get active.
If you’re on the hunt for a fit that’ll have all eyes on you at the gym, you’ll also want to grab the matching leggings here.
5. Oura Ring:
Of course you’ve heard of fitness bracelets, but have you ever heard of a fitness ring? This ring from Oura combines advanced sensor technology with an easy-to-use mobile app to deliver precise, personalized health insights straight from your finger. Whether you wear it day or night, it calculates three different metrics – readiness, sleep and activity. The best part? It features a minimal silver design that will easily pass as a stylish accessory and won’t distract from any of your other jewelry.
It’s no secret, babes. We all want to stay smelling fresh, both during and after a workout. Whether you’re a biker, swimmer, or runner, you can trust this sports spray from The Laundress to help you do the trick. Not only does it feature antibacterial properties that add scent while effectively removing odor, but it’s also made with a clean fragrance blend of rose, eucalyptus, orange and jasmine. We also love the fact that it’s non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free!
Once your workout is all said and done, you’ll definitely want to release any soreness or tension with a foam roller. This one from Lululemon caught our eye in particular because it’s made with dense foam that’s both durable and supportive. We’re also big fans of the fact that it’s a two-in-one. You can start by using the exterior roller to massage your arms and legs and then finish by using the interior roller to relax the muscles in your back. Whichever roller you use, you’ll be ready to roll when it comes to meeting your next fitness goal (pun intended!)
