I’ve had many questions over the years about what my favorite workouts are, favorite gym clothes, and of course workout nutrition; today I’m sharing a “What’s in My…” post, gym bag edition. Here I list my favorite workout essentials from water bottles, to clothing, and to my must-have beauty items that are always available just in case I’m bouncing from workout to meeting and back and forth. Added bonus, my go-to music playlist listed below to fuel your workout with extra motivation!
What’s in my…
Gym Bag Essentials
No. 1 Nike Free Runners | No. 2. headphones for music (secret to working out = good music) | No. 3 S’well reusable water bottle (birchwood and white is my jam) | No. 4 Stella McCartney for Adidas jacket (obsessed) | No. 5 Matcha Matcha Matcha muscle tank and Good Food Good Vibes tank | No. 6 Emi-jay hair ties (these are THE best hair-ties even for really long hair like mine, no pulling is a major win!) | No. 7 Herschel Supply Co. workout duffle, my absolute favorite since it’s waterproof
Gym Bag: Beauty Favorites
No. 1 BeautyCounter Facial Cleanser | No. 2 Revision Facial Toner | No. 3 Bobby Pins | No. 4 Odacite Rose Water Spray (refreshing mist after working out) | No. 5 Headband (for working out or to help back locks while washing your face) | No. 6 Soapwalla Deodorant | No. 7 Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint (perfect for on the go, or use a SPF tinted moisturizer) | No. 8 RMS Lip 2 Cheek color (multi-purpose color for your lips and cheeks, you can never go wrong)
Having the right gym essentials is only half of the mix, you also need the motivation and I always find music being the best bit of motivation that I can externally get; otherwise it always starts from within! Welcome to the most random assortment of workout jams, but so good:
On my workout playlist
- Rihanna “BBHMM” and “American Oxygen”
- Drake “Can I”
- Wale “The Body”, “The Girls on Drugs”, “The Pessimist”, and his entire “The Album About Nothing”
- Mikky Ekko “U”, “Time”, “Riot”, and basically every song…on repeat.
