5 Fab Finds Under $50: Workout Edition

Friday, March 8, 2019

Now that I've been working out consistently and seriously for about two years now, I've streamlined my workouts as well as my gear. I've stopped using canvas totes as gym bags and wearing old tees. I've invested in new sneakers (after I had runner's knee) and a good water bottle. You don't need to spend a ton, especially since gym memberships can be expensive. I've rounded up 5 finds under $50 for the gym.

1. Running Sneakers - If you workout consistently, you should be replacing your running sneakers every 6-9 months. I wasn't always good about this until I recently when I had runner's knee and was told to replace my sneakers. If you run and walk a lot (which I do!), invest in a decent pair of running sneakers not just athletic shoes.

2. Water Bottle - An insulated water bottle is a must for me as I don't like to drink water that isn't ice cold. My gym has an ice/water machine, and I love filling up my cup (I actually use one like this) since it's easier to drink out of a straw while I am in motion rather than stopping to sip out of a bottle. But I've heard great things about Hydro Flask bottles if you are looking for a reusable water bottle.

3. Mesh Leggings - After trying lots and lots of workout leggings, I've finally found a handful of brands that I love and purchase over and over again. These are by Zella, a brand you can find at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, and I love them. They are great quality and reasonably priced, especially when they are on sale.

4. Gym Bag - I purchased this gym bag two weeks ago after having used totes that I had lying around. I really needed something with more room and pockets and compartments. The canvas totes worked fine when I was using the gym for working out only. But now that I am showering there more often, I really needed a larger bag for all my essentials.

5. Open-Back Tank - I bought this tank in black a few weeks ago when it was on sale for less than $15 (it's $21 now). You can never have enough black workout tops in your arsenal. This top is versatile and goes with just about every pair of workout leggings I own.
