Spring break is just around the corner, so it is officially crunch time! As much as I love to be in a good routine, I find that it is so much easier to stay motivated when I incorporate new tools and products into my workout regimen. Thankfully, my go to shopping site, Amazon, is absolutely killing it in the fitness department! Before running out to your local fitness store or spending tons of money on celebrity-endorsed products, check out the 7 Amazon fitness items that we’re completely obsessed with right now!
And don’t forget you can also shop these items via AmazonSmile and a portion of proceeds will go back to supporting the breast cancer patients we serve.
FitGirl – Fitness Padded Ankle Strap
If you’re looking to switch up your leg day routine, this padded ankle strap is the product you need in your life! Sometimes it can get boring just using the squat rack or dumbbells on leg day. This strap is super comfortable, portable, and cute with all its pink detailing! You just attach it to the cable machine and you can do cable kickbacks, cable hip abductions/adductions, cable leg mountain climbers, and other exercises! Most gyms don’t keep ankle straps for cable machines on hand, so this is a perfect product to keep in your gym bag!
Hydro Flask Wide Mouth Water Bottle with Straw Lid
Whether you’re a student, have a desk job, or just looking for a way to up your water intake. A Hydro Flask is the perfect way to do so! They keep beverages cool for up to 24 hours, and they are also BPA and phthalate free. The handle on the lid makes it easy to carry around the gym and the straw lid allows your lipstick to stay intact while at work. Also, they are incredibly durable (I drop mine at least 3 times a day and it does not even look damaged) and they come with a lifetime warranty!
BEAR Strength and Conditioning Next Generation Squat Pad
As much as I love using the barbell for squats on leg day, I hate how uncomfortably the barbell sits on my neck and shoulders. These squat pads are the perfect way to alleviate tension and prevent injuries when doing squats or hip thrusts with a barbell! Some gyms will have barbell pads on hand, but they are usually either damaged, do not stay on the barbell, or full of germs, so this is another great item to invest in and keep on hand for leg day.
SKLZ Mini Bands – Resistance Loops for Exercise
Being that most people are sitting for the majority of their school or workday, it is important to wake up your muscles before beginning any type of exercise. This variety pack of resistance bands, consisting of a light, medium, and heavy band, is the perfect way to warm up before any upper or lower body weight training. It is rare to find these on hand at a gym, so they are another great item to invest in! Plus, they are great to add to an at home workout to add that extra umph!
Limm All-Purpose Fitness Jump Rope
What better way to warm up for a workout and remind you of your childhood than jump roping! Jump ropes are great for getting your heartrate up before a workout, throw into an at home workout, or to include in a HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) circuit. This jump rope is incredibly durable and easy to adjust to fit anyone’s height. They’re an easy product to toss in your gym bag to help liven up your workout!
SKLZ Slidez Dual-Sided Exercise Glider Discs for Core Stability Exercises
Abs are by far my least favorite muscle group to work because of how boring the exercises can be and the difficulty of them – that was until I discovered this product! These dual-sided glider discs provide comfortable, nonslip grip for your hands and feet and are made with low friction material that allows them to slide smoothly on almost all surfaces. They are great to keep in your gym bag for an ab circuit at the end of your workout or to add into an at home workout routine!
Poecent Protein Shaker Bottle
After working out, it is imperative to get large amounts of protein into your body as quickly as possible! The quickest and most convenient way I have found to accomplish this is by keeping a protein shaker bottle with a premeasured amount of protein powder in it to add water to after my workout. I can shake it up after my workout and drink it on my way home from the gym so my body can get the replenishment it needs after a long workout. This protein shaker bottle from Poecent on Amazon is durable, dishwasher safe, BPA and phthalate free, and leak proof – saving your gym bag and car from a mess!
