A month and a half after the new year, I have one question to ask: how’s your workout resolution going? The population in my gym has thinned down in terms of number of attendees every class. Starting a fitness regime can be easy, but sustaining it is the real challenge. Skipping one class can snowball into skipping a whole week, until you’ve forgotten having a membership.
I’m one of the lucky few who hasn’t quit yet. Maybe it’s because going to the gym is an excuse for me to try out new things. Gym visits merit wearing cute sports bras and comfortable leggings. It’s also where I test how sweat/waterproof makeup is. Oh, and of course it’s where I work on keeping my weight in check and body healthy. There’s also no better excuse to devour junk food than doing butterfly crunches.
Going back to my first agenda, going to the gym may be easier if you have a few upgrades to your current set, or some products that will reinforce your goals.
Fitlegend Jessica Empire Cropped Leggings
Being a small girl, I always have a problem with leggings being a bit too long, so cropped ones are my go-to. This pair from Fitlegend is the right length for me. It has mesh panels so it’s breathable. My favorite feature is how it has deep pockets. It’s convenient for people who jog with their phone or it’s where you can place your membership card. I pair mine with the Venus Infinity 2 in 1 Tank. It has a built-in bra so it’s good for any fitness routine or sport you’re into.
Champion The Zip Bra
Bras are tricky when you have big breasts. It’s a little painful when you’re working out and the bra doesn’t fit right. This is why I like this bra from Champion, it has a front zipper plus three hook and eye closures in the front. It’s also why this is easy to take off, another plus feature.
Aladdin Active Vacuum Hydration Water Bottle
I’m very particular with the water bottle I bring with me to the gym. There are non-negotiable features such as ability to keep my water cold until the end of my work out, easy to carry, and leak-proof so I can stuff it in my gym bag with no worries. Among the many trendy sports bottles out there, I think this one from Aladdin is one of the best. It’s big as it’s designed for long hikes and even beach trips, so you don’t worry about running out of water. Plus it has a one hand push button which helps keep get your sweaty hands away from the opening.
Clarins Extra Firming Body Lotion
You may be raising your eyebrow at this but you should also take care of your skin as you work on your figure. For the fine lines forming, this is a good counter-action. It has lemon thyme, centella and bocoa that helps promote youthful-looking skin. JB
