Fab Fitness Finds – for under $40

It’s January. The trimmed trees have been trashed, the gifts have been put away, and so have all of those holiday calories you consumed… in your butt, legs, stomach, arms, face… need I go on?

After the holidays, a lot of people feel motivated to get back to the gym and get back in shape – whether your inspiration is a New Year’s Resolution or just trying to squeeze back into those skinny jeans.

I gave up on the “Lose Weight” New Year’s resolution years ago – mainly because, for me, it feels like it’s only a short term surge of motivation, when it should be a long term lifestyle choice. My 2015 resolution is to be a better version of me – always, and in all ways (thanks Ryan Serhant from Million Dollar Listing for that last bit of wordsmithing) — and this definitely includes being the healthiest, fittest version of myself.

I’m so lucky to have my trainer, Mara, help me reach my goals. She pushes me — hard — but I always have so much fun with her and our weekly training session always flies by.

When I’m not working out with Mara, though, I try to look for other ways to get motivated to put in the time at the gym. And as silly as it sounds, sometimes some cute new gear can provide just the right motivation.

So, here are some of my Fab Fitness Finds for 2015 — and they’re all less than $40!

1. Yurbuds Inspire Pro for Women – $30.99 from Amazon










My Apple earbuds cracked a few weeks ago, so I’ve been in the market for new headphones. While I am dying for a pair of Beats by Dre Solos, the Yurbuds Inspire headphones got great reviews on Amazon and they mold to fit in your ear so they don’t fall out if you’re doing heavy cardio like running.

2. Patterned Compression Capris – on sale – $22.00 from Old Navy

I’m obsessed with patterned leggings and have really enjoyed the different options at Old Navy. These are a steal at $22!

3. TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller – $38.00 from Amazon

If you do any sort of strenuous exercise that leaves your calves, thighs, quads, or back sore — ever– you need a foam roller.  Mara introduced me this cylindrical massage wonder a few months ago and it helps so much to release tight muscles and knots. It’s also great to get blood circulating and is downright relaxing, too.

4. bkr Water Bottle – $30 from mybkr.com

I’ve posted about the bkr water bottles before. I’m obsessed with mine. They’re glass, so you can fill them up all day to stay hydrated and pop it in the dishwasher when it needs a scrub. They’re also really cute. Saving the environment, one adorable water bottle at a time? Sign me up.

5. C9 by Champion Tank – $16.99 at Target

C9 by Champion® Women's Tank

Lulu, you can have your lemons. I’ll take this pretty double strap tank for under $20 any day. Same style, waaaay lower price.
