Essential Gym Workout Accessories

Essential Workout Accessories for the gym include a good pair of trainers, leggings, a loose-fitting top and a water bottle to keep hydrated.

Yes, I've joined a fitness centre (gym)!

Nike Internationalist Trainers in Ivory

But I have to be honest I'm not too keen on the actual fitness machines but instead, I go to a few of the classes; Zumba, Legs Bums and Tums and on Monday of this week I tried Yogalates and very quickly decided it's not for me; good gawd have you seen the positions these people get into?!😧

I'm totally in love with my Nike Internationalist Trainers they're great quality and so comfy. These Nike Leg-a-See Swoosh Printed Leggings are made of lovely soft stretchy smooth jersey fabric with an all over swoosh print. 

You'll also need a top of some description; a sleeveless racerback perhaps (they don't suit me) I particularly like Nike T-shirts with Dry-Fit technology that's designed to keep you dry and comfortable.

Plus of course, all girlie's will need a decent Sports Bra. 'Next' has a great range of their own brand at reasonable prices too so it's worth checking them out. A Gym Bag is necessary to put your towel and change of clothes in for when you're all done.

I realise I'm liking a lot of Nike stuff in this post but it's just because I'm becoming a bit of a Nike freak. Their products are made really well and last forever.

I saw someone had given these leggings a poor review on Next saying they looked old after just a couple of washes.

But it really is because they couldn't have followed the washing instructions which is to wash at 30 degrees and not to use fabric softener.

I use non-bio washing liquid for my gym stuff as it helps keep the colour and elasticity.

I've got Nike stuff from years ago (way before I started at a gym) and one pair of trackie bottoms I have must have been washed a gazillion times and have still kept their colour and honestly could still pass for new; amazing.

Keep Hydrated!

It's ever so important to stay hydrated and this ion8 Leak Proof Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Flask from Leakproof is just perfect. 

Holding 480ml (160oz) it will see you through a good workout at the gym or when you're out and about or off to work. It's easy to carry with a textured grip band & carry hook and fits all cup holders.

Ion8 Leak Proof Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Flask

100% leak proof BPA Free vacuum insulated Pro-grade stainless steel travel mug and the flask is brilliant for keeping your drinks hot or cold.

This one-touch thermal insulated bottle is made from food-safe, pro-grade stainless steel protecting the temperature of your beverage for hours. FlavourShield is odour resistant and protects original flavours and freshness.

Available in other colours too; Red, Rose (shown above) Navy or Black and in a smaller 360ml size. It's easy to drink from too and doesn't glug.

I really like that the drinking spout is covered by the flip top.

These bottles are leak proof (with the lock in place) and doesn't get wet with condensation on the outside keeping your bag nice and dry.

When you're done is also easy to clean (handwash only). I must say I'm really am impressed with it and I say it's excellent value for money too.

At the time of writing the two sizes available are £19.99 and £24.99 Pop over to Leakproof and check this and the rest of their range out.
