Keeping that New Year’s resolution to hit the gym doesn’t need to be a hassle. Prioritizing your health is self-care, and I think we can all agree that we deserve more self-care in 2018. Whether it be going to yoga class, or jogging around the neighborhood—a girl has got to look cute. Putting on cute leggings with matching sneaker is essential to the gym routine. I’ve rounded up a list of fashionable, and durable gym essentials for the girl on the go.
Gym Essentials 1: The Water Bottle
Hydration, hydration, hydration! It’s important to drink plenty of water every day for optimal performance. You need to sweat out those toxins, and replenish the fluids you’re losing. Why use a plastic water bottle when you can save the planet with a re-usable bottle? The S’well bottles are my go to accessory. As gym essentials go, a s’well bottle is most definitely essential. They come in all different colors and designs with some size options, so you can always find your fit. Personally, I try to match them to my outfits. The one pictured above has such gorgeous colors that inspire me. You can find it here.
Gym Essentials 2: The Gym Bag
SwissGear Getaway Vertical Travel Bag Heather Gray
If you’re going to hit up the gym, you’ll want a bag to carry your stuff in. A spare change of clothes, a towel, make up wipes, dry shampoo, and whatever other things you need should have a cute place to rest while you work out. This travel bag from Target is both cute and functional for carrying your items. You can find this snazzy bag here.
Gym Essentials 3: Leggings

Gym Essentials 4: The Sports Bra

An essential gym must-have are sports bras. An ill fitted bra or no bra will just lead to an uncomfortable work out.

Gym Essentials 5: The Shoes
Nike Free Trainer 7 Premium
Last, but certainly not least a good pair of sneakers are a definite must-have essential gym component. Can’t get your work out done in heels, although that would be impressive. Nothing says Nike better than their ‘Just Do It’ motto and these sneakers are a perfect example of a walking Nike billboard. Snatch these up from your nearest Nike store or click here. Remember as your running your fifth lap around the track that you are doing it, you are making those life changes and you will stick to your resolution.
