Top 5 Must-Have Gym Essentials #Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Essence pH10. All opinions are my own. 

Happy Friday Guys! I wanted to post about a really fun topic for me, my top gym must-haves. I’m not a dedicated gym goer, and am not some kind of fitness fanatic, but I do keep myself healthy and try to go to the gym at least a couple times a week. And when going to the gym, I find that I have to have a few things with me..

Top 5 Gym Must-Haves #Gym #Exercise #Essenceph10

  • First off, you’ve got to have the right pants. You need to feel comfortable, be able to breathe in it, and it needs to cover any insecurities you may have. After having 3 children, unfortunately I am not high and tight anymore. That’s why I always find pants or capris that are snug tight and keep everything in place! I adore Victorias’s Sport. They have been the most comfortable exercise clothing I have tried. They may be a bit more in the higher price range, but I only buy when there’s a sale. Which is often. Right now they even have sports pants for just $30 with purchase of a bra top. Pretty good deal. I also love Old Navy for gym clothes. They are really inexpensive and do the job.
  • Secondly, a bra top that holds the girls tightly is a must. I personally cannot jog if I’m wearing a top that isn’t supportive. VS is a great place for supportive tops, but you can find these anywhere. Make sure if you are on the larger side in the breast area to get high support tops!

Top 5 Gym Must-Haves

  • Beats earphones. I WILL NOT go to the gym without my beats. Whatever music the gym has playing you’d be stuck listening to. Uhm, no thanks. I used to play whatever popular pop songs were on the radio, but have moved towards only Christian music that has a good beat (check out TobyMac). It keeps me positive and focused on what I need to focus on.
  • My Apple Watch. I have come to fully rely on this baby, day in and day out. I have the 1st series and love it to death. It keeps track of my steps, heart beat, how many calories I’ve burned, how many hours I’ve stood that day, not to mention I can reply to texts, even answer phone calls. Yes, I have answered calls on it and held my wrist to my mouth like I’m some kind of CIA operative. It’s pretty fun 🙂
  • Last but not least, I have to stay hydrated while at the gym. I see a lot of people there with no water and to me that’s just crazy. You’ve got to stay hydrated while exercising! That’s where Essence pH10 water comes in. I bring it with me always.

Essence pH10 will help restore your body to its natural ph balance-boosting your vitality. They also recently added hibiscus to their formulas, the flower that loves the sun and moisture! How cool is that?! I was skeptical at first because I thought it would taste like flowers, lol. But it actually tastes great. I think it tastes just like water I drink at home. I don’t taste any additions in it at all. Essence pH10 also more effectively flushes acidic toxins from your body. If you haven’t tried it yet, go now. I highly recommend this water!

    LOVE Essence pH10! Had it with me to hydrate after snowboarding – perfect for hydrating after being at high altitudes and definitely perfect during a sweaty gym workout!

  5. I love this water – the best way to stay hydrated!

  6. I love my Apple watch, especially for my spin workouts! Essence pH10 looks like something I need to try!

  7. Linda

    The water would help me hydrate for walks with my husband.

    1. Absolutely! Perfect for walks with the hubby 🙂

  8. Having all the right stuff makes getting motivated so much easier. Haven’t tried Essence yet, but it sounds like it needs to be in my gym bag too.

    1. It really does make it so much easier.

  9. Ave

    Comfortable and well fitting workout clothes are a must when exercising! I have heard great things about Essence pH10 but haven’t had a chance to try it yet.

  10. I would use PH10 for the gym! I train 6 days a week from anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. I would also use it for walks and hikes in the future.

  11. Cheryl B

    I would use this to help hydrate myself while hiking this year.

  12. lisa

    I’m getting back into workouts on Monday myself! I need to look into a sports bra like that and stock up on water!

  13. Most Apple products are on our must-have list also! Except the Beats line – they just aren’t comfortable for me.

    Sounds great ..One can follow the guidelines.
    Keep it up

  15. Dana Rodriguez

    This sounds great. It is so hot in the summer where we live and we are out doors a lot this would be great to hydrate with!

  16. Having the right pants is a must. Nobody wants to have anything sticking out while they are working out that shouldn’t be.

  17. I go to the gym five days per week. This is a great list of must-have items to take to the gym. Lately, it has not been as challenging to find workout clothes that are comfortable and breathable but to find workout clothes that do not have crazy patterns with 15 different colors (often bright and/or neon). The pH water sounds like a good idea, especially in the warmer months or on cardio-intensive days.

    It would help me hydrate for long nature walks in the spring.

  19. Water is a must! I do need to get a sports bra though – very bad for not doing that…

  20. LaTanya

    I run and walk a lot and this would help with that.

  21. Never heard of that drink before but looks refreshing! I work out at home and I’ve been looking for a new bra and pants while using the elliptical and weights at home. I’ve heard good things about the Apple Watch too from friends and my brother. Thanks for the tips!
