Gym accessories have stepped up a lot in the past decade. Gone are the sweatpants and XL cotton t-shirts. I've complied a list of 10 amazing gym accessories, some that I already have and some that one day would be great to have.
1. M0851 Gym Bag, $540
This is a wish bag! I have two clients with this bag and the leather is so soft it makes you just want to sit and pat it. At this steep price tag it's a little out of the realm of reasonable – but they are a great Canadian business success story so nice to support them.
2. Yogamatics Personalized Mat, $89
Great gift for the yogi who has everything. Jennifer Aniston made one for Oprah with a picture of her dogs on it! Such a great idea!
3. Hermes Scarf, $380
I have a client who always comes into our workouts with one on and she just looks so perfectly cool. H&M makes more reasonably priced options … but this is still my dream bag post.
4. Water Bobble, $9.99
Not your average water bottle. This bobble is a stylish, reusable bottle that filters tap water as you drink, using a replaceable carbon filter.
5. Timex Heart Rate Watch, $89.99
This is so cool! My Dad and I bought matching ones at the Can Fit Pro Expo and they are really neat. You don't need to wear a monitor, this watch will pull a pulse directly off your wrist.
6. Alex and Isabelle Bow Hair Ties, $4
Super cute hair ties that have a strong hold and they won't snag your hair.
7. Lululemon Scuba Hoodie, $108
I live in mine. Very comfortable and perfect for traveling to and from places.
8. Stella McCartney for Adidas Top, $65
I love this top and just might be purchasing it for Bod Squad! Stella McCartney for Adidas is a great place to find original gym wear – I love lulu but so does 98% of the female population now at the gym.
9. Asics GEL-Noosa Tri, $120
Yes funky looking but also no socks required!
10. Beats Headphones, $175.95
Better not lose these if you have them! For real music aficionados these are apparently they are life changing.
