Since we are doing a lot more home and outdoor workouts, I’ve found a few items that will spice up your routine. From the latest in fitness technology, to soothing creams and accessories, you’re sure to find something on this list to add to your regimen.
1. AeroTrainer Exercise Platform
Get in shape in the comfort of your own home with the AeroTrainer inflatable exercise platform. The AeroTrainer can help you safely and comfortably get your body into perfect ergonomic form when doing planks, crunches, squats, or even pushups. Regardless of your fitness level, the AeroTrainer helps create the right level of stability and balance. When you’re done working out, deflate the 7lb AeroTrainer in 30 seconds until next time.

3. Bath Bean
Baths are meant to be relaxing but it’s not always easy staying in one spot. I can’t be the only one who’s constantly repositioning myself bc I’m sliding down or my arms hurt from holding myself up. This is your sign to get a Bath Bean and truly release tension after a work out while taking a bath. Suction the Bath Bean to the bottom of your tub and slide along the surface to fit any position you’d like to sit in. Now sit back, relax and unwind without getting your hair wet!

10. Ginger Essential Oil
There are so many benefits from using essential oils. I recently learned how oil can help relieve sore muscles. After a workout, apply Jinjers’s Ginger Essential Oil to the affected area and massager it in. Ginger Essential Oil is blended with 2 carrier oils - 100% jojoba oil and evening primrose oil. The ginger actually produces heat which soothes aching muscles.
Everyone needs that drink to keep you going during and after a work out. Tapout's drinks are perfectly balanced performance drinks designed for hydration and recovery.

Boost your collagen levels with ShiftSetGo's Collagen. It's the ideal blend of all 5 types of collagen that helps support healthy hair, skin, nails, joints, and digestion. It’s also gluten-free, dairy-free, and non-gmo. It’s tasteless, which is a huge plus for me, and easily dissolves in any beverage.
13. Superstratum Fabric Odor Protectant
After a work out, we tend to be smelly. And, if you’re like me, there may be sweat stains on your clothing aka in the underarm area. So, before you throw those dirty clothes in the wash, spray them with the Superstratum Fabric Odor Protectant. The smart polymers in this spray prevents mold, mildew, and bacteria from growing and causing nasty odors.
