Summertime Workout Essentials

May 28, 2015

Now that it's basically summer, I'm coming out of gym hibernation and taking a lot of my workouts outdoors. It's a much better view and smells nicer. ;) I'm so excited that it's time to swap my capris for shorts and hit the ground running. (Pun intended.) Oh, and note to self: buy more sunscreen because I've already gotten burnt twice. #palepeopleproblems I tell ya.

summertime workout essentials, workout wear, activewear, Nike training shoes, resistance band, Target, water bottle, Neutrogena sunscreen, Under Armour, hat, Under Armour hat, Garmin Vivofit, fitness watch

Garmin Vivofit - I love using my Garmin watch to track my steps, calories and keep track of my daily goals. It's a great way to stay motivated - especially with a desk job. My only complaint: the time is an hour off and I can't figure out how change it! Darn daylight savings. (Anyone know how to fix this?)

No Tug Hair Ties - These are the only kind of hair ties I use because they don't break my hair or leave much of a crease. (However, when they stretch, this happens.) A little dry shampoo the next day and I'm good to go! And I really enjoy matching them to my gym outfit. Weird? Maybe.

Sunscreen - Because no one wants to be that person peeling like a lizard during a workout. And no that's never happened to me.....

Water Bottle - It's so important to stay hydrated during any workout - especially outside in the hot sun. And you can get closer to the recommended 8 glasses/day! #bonus

Resistance Band - Instead of lugging weights outdoors, grab a resistance band and get to work! How cute is this pink one?!

Hat - Just another (cute) way to make sure your hair is out of your face while you work up a sweat.. and the sun is out of your face.

Training Shoes - Shoes can wear out quickly so be sure you're wearing proper shoes to train. Nike's training shoes are lightweight and great for weight training and outdoor circuits.
