Hey everyone! So, I’ve been watching the Rio Olympics since the beginning and I’m so proud of our US teams especially the gymnasts. It makes me wonder how much training these gymnasts do to compete at such high level. It’s simply amazing to me!
Even though I’m nowhere near the level of these athletes, I wanted to create a post that shares a few of my new favorite workout products that could motivate and give us that Olympian level of confidence.
1. Stay Hydrated
Everyone should know by now that hydration is important to any good training. I carry a bottle with me everywhere and it’s important for me to support products that support the environment. Just Water is 100% spring water in a paper-based bottle responsibly sourced, produced and packaged for improved environmental and community impact.
The Just Water bottle is made of 83% renewable resources by using paper and plant-based plastic from sugarcane, resulting in a 74% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to a range of traditional plastic bottles. It’s sourced from the Glens Falls watershed in Upstate New York where water is abundant. An ethical trade revenue partnership with the city of Glens Falls is revitalizing the local community by paying six times the municipal rate for access to less than 3% of its excess water.
The price of Just Water isn’t bad either. It is currently available nationally at a retail price of $0.99 for a 16.9-ounce bottle – the price point is deliberate to ensure JUST water is accessible to everyone.
2. Take Nutrition Supplements
Vitamin Shoppe is simply amazing. I like to visit my local store at least twice a month. True Athlete is the next generation of sports nutrition supplements and was created for fitness enthusiasts (like myself). It was formulated with care by Vitamin Shoppe and contains no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and is free of banned substances NSF Certified for Sport.
Below are the products from the True Athlete line:
Energized Training Formula (Fruit Punch Flavor) – This formula is designed for serious muscle, endurance, performance and energy support. It was developed for the athlete and fitness enthusiast looking for that extra edge on the field, on the court or in the gym. Energized Training Formula contains creatine, arginine and beta-alanine along with caffeine and AstraGin™. This trademarked ingredient is produced from ginseng and astragalus and is designed to improve absorption of amino acids, glucose, vitamins and other nutrients. The fruit punch flavor taste amazing too!
Natural Whey Protein Packets – OMG, I love these! It adds that extra boost of protein to my diet. They’re also amazing for smoothies! I like to throw one packet in my smoothies as a post-workout snack. My favorite is the strawberry flavor.
3. Wear Performance Clothes
These 2XU Mid-Rise 7/8 Compression Tights are great to wear during training. The compression is engineered to promote maximum blood flow, reduce fatigue through less muscle oscillation and muscle soreness, and you’ll get a much faster pre-exercise muscle warm up. The performance tights have a comfort wide waistband for a streamlined and sleek fit. My legs and butt look great in these.

4. Have a good training watch
I just love the patriotic look of this Casio Baby G Watch! It truly is the perfect fashion accessory to wear this summer if you want to make patriotic statement whether you’re going to the gym or to the grocery store. The functionality is pretty amazing too! If you like to dive into the pool its equipped with water and shock resitance or if you need to time your sprints the stopwatch and timer functionality are included as well. Plus there’s an LED light for the night owls, world time for traveling the globe, and multiple alarms for those who have a hard time getting up. This watch has everything! Casio Baby G Watch is available at Macy’s for $130.
5. Recharge Your Skin
After I come home from the gym, I immediately take care of my skin because the sweat can clog my pores. To recharge my skin, I’m currently using this portable five-step facial treatment kit from Purpletale and I’m loving it. It’s a complete facial solution that will leave your skin feeling deeply nourished and looking absolutely lovely. It comes with (1) foam cleanser, (2) ampoule, (3) bio-cellulous sheet mask, (4) facial cream, and (5) neck cream in one neat packet so that you can enjoy facials whenever and wherever you want!
Here’s how to use:
1) Cleanse : lather foam cleanser in hands and wash face and neck. Rinse and gently pat dry.
2) Treat : apply a thin layer of ampoule to face and neck and wait for the product to sink in.
3) Pamper : peel away protective film on one side, place the mask on face and then peel away the other protective film. Leave on face for at least 20 minutes. Remove when ready.
4) Moisturize: dab facial cream on face and apply evenly.
5) Nourish: massage neck cream onto neck with an upward motion.
We all want #nofilter fabulous skin and this effective at home mini-facial is the perfect way to end the day. Here’s an added bonus: This all-in-one facial kit is TSA friendly. Now you can easily recover from your long flight, so that your selfies look stunning!
