The days of heading to the gym in nothing but your plain cotton t shirt with yellow pit-stains is over!
Here are 7 gym essentials that will provide both added style and performance to your next workout.
1) iPod/mp3 Player Holder
Are you still carrying your mp3 player in your pocket? If you are, get an arm band iPod holder that will keep the headphone wires out of your way.
2) Sport Headphones
When you’re running and moving around at the gym, make sure to get a pair of sport headphones that go around the ears to prevent the headphones from slipping out.
3) Performance Socks
Nothing is worse than a sticky, sweaty sock. Go for a breathable pair with wicking technology to keep your feet dry and stink-free. Some can also support your arch and absorb shock for maximum performance.
4) Heart Rate Monitor
Heart rate monitors can be a bit intimidating at first, so if you’re not training for an Ironman its best to keep things simple. These devices can quickly tell you how many calories you burned and also tells you when your fitness is improving based on your heart rate.
5) Lightweight Duffel
When your’e carrying all your “stuff” (sneakers, towels, water, etc.) it’s best to have a duffel that’s light and compact. Also, look for ones that have lots of pockets to help you stay organized.
6) Antimicrobial Tech Shirts
Embarrassed by odors during and after workouts? Antimicrobial tech shirts feature odor block technology to keep you smelling fresh until you hit the showers.
7) All-In-One Training Shoe
For your full-body workout, you need a shoe that has it all including exceptional traction, cushion, and support.
What’s the Point?
The above gym “tools” can make working out a more successful and pleasurable experience.
