Fresh gear makes getting your daily sweat in that much more fun, so we’ve rounded up some new products to check out before your next workout. From lunchboxes to sports bras, every fit girl deserves one (or three) of these cool items in her gym bag.
Eddie Bauer Ashford Tote
Perfect when heading to your yoga studio or Spin class, the Ashford Tote is lightweight and roomy, and it has a style most gym bags don’t offer. The 600-denier polyester is durable, and the snap closure system will keep all your essentials in place. With a can’t-beat price point, this fashionable tote is a must-have for the active woman.
Scosche BoomBottle H2O+
Nothing pairs better with a workout than your favorite tunes. The BoomBottle H20+ is an ultra-durable and waterproof Bluetooth speaker designed to be taken anywhere and everywhere. The 11-hour battery life will outlast even the hardest sessions, and the lightweight design is perfect for carrying in your gym bag.
You want to jam out during your high-intensity interval training, but how and where do you secure your smartphone? No worries because FitHolster has you covered. An alternative to an armband, this magnetic phone case was ergonomically designed with guidance from an orthopedic surgeon, engineered to move and work with your body’s natural range of motion. The reversible magnetic clasp positioned above the protective case allows movement without being restricted by your hip joint, and the neoprene is sweatproof.
Meal preppers, rejoice! Gone are the days of bulky, leaky Tupperware to tote your food around for the day. Fittbo creators wanted to revolutionize the lunchbox, and they developed a product that’s leakproof, fits vertically in your bag and has enough compartments for your protein, carbs and fats. It’s thermo-insulated, easy to clean and BPA-free, plus it has a super-stylish wood-like exterior. Presale is happening now on Indiegogo.
Handful Bound & Determined Sports Bra
Handful was founded in 2006 by a group fitness instructor after she struggled to find an up-to-par sports bra for her active lifestyle. Its newest style, the Bound & Determined, provides stylish support — including adjustability on both wide and narrow straps — but also can double as athlesiurewear in crop-top form. It’s made of stretchy, soft, quick-dry fabric and comes with removable pads. And what’s even cooler is that Handful has cultivated a strong community of cancer survivors, offering a 30 percent discount to any one of them who wants to purchase a bra.
Miiego AL3+ Freedom Woman
What separates women’s headphones from men’s? The Miiego AL3+ Freedom wireless headphone includes a lightweight and secure neckband designed specifically for a woman’s proportions. Designed for an active sports lifestyle, the on-ear design still allows you to be aware of your surroundings while out for a run or in the gym, and the lightweight build stays securely in place.
RYU Quick Pack Lux 18L
Not all packs are created equal, and RYU (Respect Your Universe) has set out to create a minimal and modern bag that’s functional and durable. The molded internal shell provides a structured design that protects all your gym essentials, and the wax-treated face creates a water-repellent fabric. The leather straps contour your body for an adjustable and comfortable fit, and the simple ergonomic design makes it easy to access your gear.
If you can’t make it to the gym consistently or prefer to work out at home, Monkii Bars may be your new best friend. Similar to TRX, this super-compact, lightweight suspension training system can essentially turn any space into your whole-body workout playground. Several editions are offered — with a new one available for pre-order — and all are made in the United States by craftsmen, plus come accompanied with a guide full of workouts.
TomTom Spark 3 Cardio + Music
From reliable GPS tracking to a personal music storage device, the Spark 3 activity watch does it all. Its waterproof and durable design is great for tracking swimming, cycling and running, and the long battery life and 3GB of storage will have you listening to music for miles to come. Bluetooth enabled, this watch will pair to your smartphone for easy data uploads and will pair to your favorite pair of wireless headphones.
Getting enough H20 in daily is a nonnegotiable, and if you’re on the go, a bottle that’s practical and efficient is key. Enter Memobottle, a premium, reusable, flat water bottle designed to neatly slide into bags alongside computers, books and valuables (like your gym clothes and shoes!). Did we mention it’s eco-friendly, too? In an effort to reduce single-use plastic bottle consumption, the Aussie founders designed Memobottle with an innovative slim shape out of BPA-free plastic, presented in recycled cardboard packaging.
Roka Rio TI
No workout outfit is complete with a cute and sporty pair of sunglasses. This aviator frame from Roka features a lightweight and durable titanium frame, and the impact-resistant Carl Zeiss Vision lenses are designed to withstand whatever workout you throw at them. Better yet, they’re just as at-home at the gym as they are at your post-Spin class brunch.
