Check out some of my favorite workout essentials below:
A good yoga mat is a must – I like this one by Lululemon. It’s lightweight but offers just enough cushioning and grip. It also has an antimicrobial additive to help prevent bacteria, mold, and fungi.
I have more shoes than I’d like to admit, but you will always find me in Under Armour whether it’s running on the treadmill, trails or hitting a body pump class. Most recently I bought a pair of the UA Threadborne Slingflex and I’m pretty pumped about the purchase. They are lightweight but still offer enough support (at least for my liking – I don’t do the whole bulky shoe thing).
As far as leggings go – Lulu is still the front runner in my opinion. My favorite pair right now is the Align Pant II. High rise, lightweight, hidden pocket, and the waistband keeps them from sliding down while working out.
While most of my leggings are Lulu, I have a few pairs by Under Armour that I really like as well. My favorite is the Breathelux Capri. The fabric is awesome (serious moisture wicking) and they have perforated leg vents to release excess heat. Some UA leggings I own tend to move around (specifically in the waist and I find myself constantly pulling them up), but not these!
I recently bought this crop top and I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can give it a try. I’ve seen similar ones at Lululemon and am anticipating that there will be a lot more of where this came from.
