Update your Workout gear with this list of Essentials


This year came with another endless selection of new fitness products to try out; as well as global lockdown. As soon as the Fourth of July decorations were cleared off, facemasks, hand sanitizers, filled the shelves of stores from Target to Walmart, groceries, boxes of essentials, announcing it was officially ‘back-to-school’ season.

One thing that didn't change in 2020 was the fact that people want items that help them perform and make them look good doing it. These are the items you need for a successful "back to fitness" season. From pain relief technology to, shoes and accessories, we've got you covered on the top 11 items for fitness enthusiasts to help you reach your workout goals in 2021 and beyond.


Workout Notebook


Aside from having the fresh pages of a new exercise book to encourage you to dive right in to your group fitness classes in Keller Texas or a personal fitness gym in Keller Texas, having a place to record your fitness activities goes a long way in helping you set and achieve your fitness goals. Have your eyes on strength training? This classic workout logbook from Joe Oliver is one of our favorites. Interested in running, the believe journal created by Lauren Fleshman should be your pick. For other fitness buffs, a journal such as this is a fun way to track and celebrate your workout progress in and out of the gym.


Illuminating Vest


Noxgear Tracer360 is another recommended tool for early-morning and late-evening runners. This lightweight illuminating vest has been a game-changer for staying safe and visible while running on dark streets.


Proper Shoes and Fresh Clothes


Investing in new options to fill your athletic box will give you motivation, and the spark of excitement, to be prepared to tackle your workout. As workout shoes age, their cushioning starts to flake, providing less support for your feet and joints, hence getting new fitted shoes can give you more than just a mental boost. Ensure you get the right pair of shoes for your fitness, and that they’re in good shape to help you crush your workout goals and stay fit when you enroll in group fitness classes near you.


Fuel for Healthy Workout


Whether it’s a group fitness class or a fitness gym in Keller Texas, good nutrition should be a component of your workout routine because properly fueling your body is vital for staying healthy and getting results. Take time to plan out your nutrition; ensuring you have portable, nourishing, meals, and water, on hand before and after your group fitness training in Keller, Texas or your personal fitness training in Keller, Texas to help you get the best out of your workout activities.


Reusable Water Bottle with Filtration


The importance of hydration for fitness and health cannot be over emphasized, and one quick way to stay hydrated daily is by using a reusable water bottle. Select a BPA-free water bottle, and if your pocket allows it, shoot for one with a filtration system so you are not consuming toxins and contaminants from unfiltered water. This reusable water bottle should be with you most times of the day, not just when you workout in your group fitness training in Keller, Texas or your personal fitness training in Keller, Texas alone. This will help you achieve proper hydration.


Headphones


The importance of headphones during workout cannot be overemphasized. One recommended headphone is the Aftershokz Aeropex Headphone. The latest model of these headphones has a conduction technology that helps deliver quality sound, the sweat and waterproof Aeropex offer enhanced sound and up to eight hours of battery life. Selecting the right music for your workout can help rev-up your energy for your daily fitness routine.


Sweat Towels and Body Wipes


Running out of time? Body wipes are the go-to material for fitness enthusiasts. With tight schedules, some people are forced to quickly squeeze in some workout activities, which don’t always leave enough time for one to shower and change. When you’re in a time-crunch, body-wipes help you stay bacteria-free and fresh. Towels are good too. They are useful in helping you pat away dampness as it occurs. Hence, it is always good to take one with you whenever you’re headed to the gym.


Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT

If you’re a runner or a race enthusiast, chances are you noticed a sea of people running in pink or green Vaporflys, especially after they were released to the public. If you're a jogger looking to run a big personal best, chances are either you already own a pair of Nike ZoomX or you've got them high on your to-get list. 


BCAA Supplement


Whether your goal is muscle gain or weight loss, most of us can agree that it’s not muscle we want to lose but fat. Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) supplement helps maintain muscle mass by increasing protein synthesis hence preventing muscle breakdown.


Recovery Tool


After a lengthy day and intense workout session, it is vital that you relax your body and mind before going to bed. Giving your muscles some rest helps keep them in optimal condition. Use a stick, foam roller, lacrosse ball, or other self-massage tool to help release tight plugs and return muscles to their ideal tension-length.


If you're a workoutaholic who often suffers from aches and pains, this stainless steel massage tool can save you a visit to the chiropractor while helping to increase blood flow and break up scar tissue and recovery. Vibration therapy is another recovery method that gained traction in 2019 and early 2020, as it can help speed up recovery for anything from plantar fasciitis to hip flexor tightness. The mini version of this recovery tool is also a perfect pick because it's portable and easy to travel with.


Doing these 5 to 10 minutes daily before bed will go a long way towards keeping your muscles healthy and fit, and in turn allow you to stay consistent with your group fitness training in Keller, Texas or your personal fitness training in Keller, Texas.


Wrist Watch


In everything we do in life, it is important we budget time to whatever we do – fitness is not exempted. A recommended watch for workout is the COROS Apex Premium Multisport. This sleek watch is well known for its long battery life, which makes it alluring to runners who cover extreme distances longer than marathons.
