Some people prefer a simple workout, a minimalist sweat sesh. If you’re like us and enjoy being extra at the gym, then let us help trick out your fitness gear stash. The beauty of these little gym accessories is that they don’t interfere with or get in the way of a workout. Rather, they alleviate some of the annoyances that prevent us from turning 100 percent focus over to the work.
You know, like when your boobs are spinning around like a tennis ball in a dryer and all you want to do is finish this 5K...you get a sturdier bra that’s actually made to support those double-something tatas!
Instead of fidgeting with a slippery wedding ring or constantly readjusting your undies, you could just wear the right stuff from the start and have an all-around less irritating workout!
Married to the Grind
After you’ve said I do, everyone’s saying I don’t want to deal with this ring during a workout! Whether you want to protect your precious jewelry, or hate the slip and slide of finger sweat, sometimes it’s worth just leaving your ring at home. The Qalo silicone bands are a brilliant, and super cute, substitute. In a rainbow of colors and styles, and designs that are even customizable, you can comfortably don an I’m taken badge at the gym.
Put Some Junk on Your Trunk
You better believe the fanny pack is back! Frankly, we wonder why it ever left. Is there a more utilitarian piece of gear? Since its fall in the early 90s we’ve been trying to balance our keys, ID, and sunblock when we go out on a run. Finally! Everything has a place again. And unlike its first round of popularity, our music device actually fits inside. You can find one just about anywhere to suit any style - from Etsy to major sporting good stores to the trendiest brands.
Lookin’ Real Goodr
Is there anything more annoying during a workout than when your sunglasses treat your nose like a zip line and just keep sliding down? OK, maybe the guy who grunts after every. single. rep. But back to the point, Goodr sunglasses punch this peeve right in the peepers. This super fun brand has designed running shades that do not slip, are super comfortable, come in the brightest, funnest colors, are even polarized, and cost less than $40. Sounds too gooder to be true, doesn’t it?
Hold the Wedgies
If slippery sunglasses suck, then undies that can’t stand up to even a modest workout are a real pain in the ass. The Candi Factory makes the most adorable undies that comfortably hug your hips and hold a no-slip-grip on your booty whether you’re chasing chaturangas or running races. The designs on their breathable bamboo/Lycra material are fresh and charming, and they last just shy of forever.
Do Look Down
All the jingle jangle of mantra and inspirational bracelets and necklaces can really weigh down a workout. That’s why we like these little Foot Notes from Momentum. These badges of motivational wisdom lace right into your shoes and serve as a reminder to Just Breathe, Run Happy, Shut Up Legs, be Relentless, or just about anything else you need to have shouted up at you. Love the ENELL motto of UNSHAKABLE? We have an awesome Foot Note for you!
