It seems like everyone and their mothers are embarking on a makeover. Who can blame them? The pandemic has shown us how precious and fragile life is and that we must do our best to keep our bodies healthy. We understand that 150 minutes of exercise per week are needed to stay in shape. Now 20 minutes on the treadmill a day doesn’t sound too bad, especially with all the Netflix and Disney + shows you can watch to kill time!
Now on to the 13 items you need to stay healthy!
1. Under Armour’s UA Mask
Unlike your typical cloth face masks, this is made for exercise. The UA mask is designed to rest on the face and lips to maximize breathability. The material receives an antimicrobial treatment so that the inner layer of the mask can stay cool throughout the workout.
Although the mask has built-in UPF 50+ sun protection, it is suitable for indoor and outdoor training. Just make sure you keep social distance – the mask is not medical.
2. Nike Free Metcon 4 and Adidas Ultraboost DNA 1.0
If you think being locked inside is an excuse to hang out all day, think again. Put on a pair of sneakers and listen to your favorite YouTube workout videos. The Nike Free Metcon 4 combines flexibility and stability so you can get the most out of your workout.
Adidas kicks, on the other hand, are a throwback to the OG pair. They feature the same knitting pattern used in the very first Ultraboosts of 2015. While they carry the DNA of performance running, this interpretation of the Ultraboosts works wonderfully for indoor training.
3. Fitbit Sense and Apple Watch Series 6
Doesn’t every workout seem more interesting when you can actually measure the effect of your efforts? The Fitbit Sense is an advanced health smartwatch that helps you connect to your body with tools for stress management, heart health, and more.
On the other hand, the Apple Watch Series 6 is in a league of its own. With the ability to measure your blood oxygen level, you can get a better idea of ââhow well your body is.
4. NordicTrack X32i incline treadmill
This treadmill will literally take you on a journey. The iFit integration is an incline / decline feature of the treadmill, and it syncs with the elevations and inclines of the terrain you choose to explore through the iFit Google Maps app. Pair that with a TV documentary and you can virtually experience the routes in Africa, America or Asia!
Your eyes need care too! Working indoors does not make it easy on the eyes. Here are two pairs that will prevent these spectators from getting tired more. For these rare outings, because you should stay indoors when possible, we have Coach sunglasses that will add just the right amount of accent to your outfit.
And for those days when you’ll be working hard behind a screen, protect them with your prescription lenses, framed in this gorgeous Prada pair.
6. Lululemon Stash It Bra
If there is one smart sports bra, this is it. Lululemon’s most advanced creation features nifty storage options for hot items like a small towel or your t-shirt – for when workouts get hot – and a back pocket to keep little essentials on you.
No more headphone cords wiggling around either, with loops securing them to you. All of these new features come with the same sweat-wicking fabric that all Lululemon lovers have come to know and love!
7. Gymshark 7/8 training leggings
There is no limit when it comes to owning leggings. If you’re still looking for the next best thing, give them a try.
Cut to that perfect mid-length, they don’t have a front seam that has been the root of too many wardrobe missteps.
8. Rockay water bottle
Your water bottle game is about to get an upgrade (green). Rockay is playing the sustainability game. They use recycled stainless steel to make the body of the bottle, recycled plastic for the lid, and 100% recycled cardboard for the packaging. For each bottle purchased, the brand removes around 700g of plastic waste (around 77 water bottles) from the ocean.
It’s not just good for the planet; the bottle works well too, with the ability to stay cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours.
9. Puma Gym training gym bag
For those days when you can get a quick workout at the gym, pack your essentials in this handy gym bag. With enough storage to fit everything on this list (except the treadmill, of course), you won’t be running out of space anytime soon.
10. Great face! Play daily sun lotion
This is perhaps one of the most important things on this list. Super goup! is one of the most renowned brands in sun protection. While they have a plethora of sun protection options – we’re talking over 50 variations – PLAY sunscreen is still a good standard to look to. With a broad spectrum SPF 50 PA ++++, you get just about the best level of sun protection, in addition to their light texture and lotion that penetrates perfectly into the skin.
Did we mention that it is also water and sweat resistant?
11. Blackmores turmeric curcumin capsules
You’ve probably heard of the benefits of turmeric, but did you know that it’s especially effective when you take its most active compound, curcumin? According to a Healthline article, it has a potent anti-inflammatory quality and is a very powerful antioxidant.
While it is highly recommended that you take turmeric in your meals, there is simply not enough curcumin when used as a spice. That is why this supplement is the way to go, and according to this study, the compound can reduce muscle damage and pain after vigorous exercise. It basically lets you cheat the pain! A shorter payback means you also stay consistent.
