Fitness Products Every Fitness Enthusiast Should Own

*this post is sponsored by fabletics. all thoughts and opinions are my own*

Happy Friday! I always look forward to Friday because: 1) FRIDAY anddd 2) I get to share my weekly fitness post. If you remember this post from a while ago, I shared the contents of my gym bag and there were a ton of products (sorry not sorry) but thought I’d share the necessities every fitness lover should own! What’s one fitness product you can’t live without?

Fancy Water Bottle:

It’s important to drink lots of water before, during, and after a workout. I’ll be honest, I tend to drink more H2O when it’s in a cute bottle (I can’t be the only one) and I just ordered this one from Soma. The bottle is made from shatter-resistant glass so if you accidentally drop it or it falls out of your gym bag, it’s ok! Plus, it looks so sleek and I love the sleeve. Another favorite would be this one from Forever21 (also glass).

Fitness Headphones:

I love to listen to music or watch Netflix while working out. Unless I’m wearing headphones specifically for exercise, they fall out and it’s the most annoying thing! Bose is definitely my go-to for music anything and these are a top-seller. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, this pair has great reviews on Amazon (although I’ve never tested them out).

Yoga Mat:

Even if you don’t do yoga, I would highly recommend getting a mat. It makes working out so much more comfortable and it’s a lot easier to grip. I prefer a thicker mat, this one from Lululemon is 5mm and my favorite but they also have a 3mm mat! Forever21 has some really cute designs, although they aren’t quite as nice as a high-quality mat. This design speaks to me 🍕.

Bright Sneakers:

Fun workout clothes doesn’t make exercising quite as bad and there are so many cute pieces out there! You know I love Fabletics and I recently did a round-up of my favorite spring clothes, too. I have pretty basic workout clothes, the usual black Nike sports bra and shorts, but one thing I prefer to have lots of color in are my shoes. Shoes are life, yo. Nike is definitely my go-to for sneakers and I’m drooling over this neon yellow pair (SO fun) and this blush pink shade.

    Totally am on Team Cute WaterBottle! Its much more fun to drink water when its out of a cute container, right? All about that – and keep adding to my cute collection!

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    Ohhh, I am not a fitness enthusiast, but all of these sound amazing!! I do workout occasionally, and when I do, a great set of head phones is always something I gotta have!

  • Allison

    I love a good fancy water bottle! It always helps encourage me to drink more water if I am carrying around a cute bottle. Great picks!

  • Reesa Lewandowski

    I am always on the hunt for good headphones, they are so hard to find!!! And a water bottle that doesn’t leak!

  • Jessi Joachim

    I love bright sneakers! I always felt like pretty and bright colored active wear makes me more motivated to actually work out.

  • Tereza

    I have all of these, hurray! Apart from bright sneakers – I just can’t pull off bright gym wear so I’m sticking to blacks and greys and some pops of white and khaki! I’m on a lookout for the fanciest of yoga mats though, the cats have ripped mine to absolutely shreds haha!

  • Theresa

    These are all awesome spring shopping ideas. I could use some new, bright sneakers to remind me to go out and run more often.

  • Angela Tolsma

    A cute water bottle is a must for me when it comes to working out! I have the same Lulu mat. But sneakers, I would so prefer black or gray than bright colors!!

  • Blythe Alpern

    I bought a new pair of workout shoes late last year and I notice a huge difference. They are lighter and actually help me perform better. Going to check out the Lululemon yoga mats and I’ve been looking for one that is a bit thicker to support my knees and wrists.

  • Lynn

    Okay, I have some work to do! I have the bright shoes and the water bottle but I usually go without the tunes and the yoga mat! Thanks for the suggestions!

  • Donah

    Yaaaas! Great yoga mat 🙂 Am I the only one who thinks about food at the gym? I need to get my own mat for sure. Thanks for sharing!

  • Amy Desrosiers

    I totally could use a new fancy water bottle. Actually, I also need an extra shaker bottle too.

  • Terri Steffe

    Agree about the goodies for fitness. I think having quality things around you makes the experience all the more pleasant.

  • Jean

    Some really great priducts! I may not be a fitness enthusiast (yet!) but I already have some of these products so I’m half way there! I love the bright shoes and its great to have a fab water bottle.

  • Heather

    I love your sneakers! I don’t have headphones specifically for exercise but should get some!

  • Angela

    Well these are all great tips for the fitness enthusiast!!! My favourite are probably the bright sneakers and the fancy bottle

  • Jeanine

    I need to get a new yoga mat its something I keep putting off, but need to go grab one! I also need better headphones. They are top of my list now that spring has arrived i want to take my work outs outside!

  • Reshama

    yup! i love the glass bottles too 🙂 although since i have a little one in the house, i had to get a stainless steel one.. i should get a glass one for my work place though.

  • Roxanne

    I wouldn’t label myself a fitness “enthusiast” but I do like to look cute while I’m working hard for my dewy glow! 😉

  • Mandy Carter

    I agree with all of those plus add a great pair of weight lifting gloves and a practical gym bag!

  • Rachel @ Kitchen Cents

    I need to be better about exercising but all these things sound awesome. Thanks for sharing these great items.

  • Nikki

    I’m in agreement with you on the water thing. I tend to drink more water too if its in a cute bottle haha. My earbuds fall out when exercising, so I switched to actual headphones!

  • Amanda Love

    It’s good to have all the things that you need when you’re trying to get fit. Especially since it’s not so easy to find motivation if you’re just starting out. I think these are all lovely gift ideas.

  • Yona Williams

    I’ve been thinking about getting earbuds specifically made for working out because I can’t live without them, and I am constantly sweating them out. I also like to wear brightly colored sneakers…I think they are more motivating.

  • Heather

    I need to look into those headphones! I love riding my bike and those would be perfect to take along with me!

  • anvita

    I love those bottles. No matter where I am going I always love t carry a water botlle. BTW I like those sneakers

  • Amanda Rosson

    Woot!! I have all these things so I guess I’m good to go! Now if only I had some time to actually make it to the gym lol.
