A Fitness Instructor’s Favorite Things

Hello there!

Well, we officially have 15 days until Christmas……..are you ready?? Don’t worry, I’m not either. All I have to say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime and that I don’t have a ton of people to shop for. 🙂

Today I wanted to take a peek into some must-haves for a fitness instructor- whether you teach classes everyday or just once a week….

Yoga Pants

This is a no-brainer, but has to be included. Since I teach Stroller Strides classes and am a SAHM, I LIVE in yoga pants. I need something that I can wear for most of the day- after class running errands etc. I’ve tried so many different brands out there, but I have to say my favorite brand of late Is Beyond Yoga. They are THE MOST comfortable pants I have ever worn, seriously. Try some on and you won’t be disappointed.

A Cute Pullover

To go along with the yoga pants, for me, I don’t have time to shower and change immediately after teaching class. So, I need something that is comfy but cute enough to wear out and about. I love that so many fitness brands sell things that can be wear outside of the gym and the studio.

Below are some fun finds from Zella:

 Comfy Shoes

My shoes are on their last legs, so I’m currently on the hunt for a new pair…soon! 🙂

Headbands

My classes are usually in the AM, so I don’t have time to do my hair and I also figure…..what’s the point?  So, a headband can hide my lack of hair style. My favorite brand is Sweaty Bands because they are cute AND they actually stay on my head!

Dry Shampoo

Refer to previous statements as to why this is a necessity. 🙂

Power Bars

I’m always hungry and snacking, so I keep a granola bar in my bag at all times.

Water bottle

I carry one with me at all times, whether I’m teaching or not. My favorite brand of late is Contigo because the water actually stays cold….score!

And that’s all I have!

Is there anything you would add to the list??

Also, for those of you that follow me on Instagram– you may have seen my post that we are expecting a baby boy this Spring! I’ll dedicate an entire post with more details very soon! 🙂

Alright friends, have a great Thursday!!
