With the new year here everyone is heading back to the gym. Right? I mean I have NEVER seen my gym parking lot so full. So for those of you jumping back into it or those of you who are just continuing your healthy life, I am sharing 5 new years workout essentials that will help get you going!
5 New Years Workout Essentials
Caffeine: I can’t go to the gym until I have SOME SORT of caffeine. Some days if I am going super early I just don’t have time for coffee. So lately I have been trying the Alert Caffeine Gum. Alert is a caffeinated chewing gum for adults that gives you a boost when you need it. One piece of Alert Caffeine Gum is equal to half a cup of coffee, so if you can’t get that morning coffee in before it’s perfect! Plus it’s portable! Alert Caffeine Gum goes where caffeinated beverages cannot (energy drinks, shots, coffee) – in your gym bag, in your shorts pocket, in the console of your spin bike, wherever! This has been great for me because honestly being so busy with Liam I can’t always get a boost before my workout at home or at the gym. So this gum is handy to have on my way to the gym or while playing with him before I go!
New Shoes: Nothing says goals like starting the new year out with new shoes. There are so many insanely great sales right now to find great workout shoes. Plus the right shoes will save you in muscle issues and knee issues down the road.
Entertainment: I need some sort of distraction at the gym. Personally, I love podcasts. I have tons of suggestions here if you are a podcast lover. If not make a great playlist on Spotify or scroll to find ones you love. There is always Netflix too! Seriously tons of options to distract you.
Post Workout Snack: I am usually pretty hungry after a workout. My favorite go to snack right now is a banana. Sometimes with peanut butter but it’s easy to transport or grab from the snack bar at my gym. Make sure you pop something in your purse or gym bag for after your workout.
Hydration: Hydration is KEY! I got a Yeti Tumbler for Christmas that I have been loving and I swear it has been helping me reach one of my goals of drinking more water. Make sure you bring water with you and keep refilling it as needed.
I hope you found my new years workout essentials helpful to get you going on your goals!
