1. Workout While The Sun’s Out!
As a bonafide Cali FitGirl I love a good outdoor workout. So if you are a sun sweater like me then be sure to snag these RAD items for your summer sweat sessions. I searched high and low for the best products to date so get your game face ready and repeat after me – “suns out guns out!”
2. Get Your Jam On
First things first, there’s no way I’m working out without my RAD playlists – which is why I love the Jawbone MINI JAMBOX Bluetooth Speaker! This vibrant and lightweight toy comes in tons of colors and since it is wireless you can stream audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device within 33 feet. Small enough to fit in your pocket and portable enough to take anywhere! Now squat it like it’s hot!
3. Own Your Workouts In Onzie
Calling all fashionista FitGirls! If you don’t own any fit gear from Onzie (pronounced Own-zee) then I don’t know what you are waiting for. This fashionable yet functional line is killing the fitness fashion game. With a wide collection of booty shorts, uniquely cut sports bras, one pieces and so much more, this RAD line is guaranteed to turn heads this season!
4. Keep Your Locks Undercover
Nothing worse than your hair color looking fried after too much fun in the sun, which is why I love this cap by Under Armour. I found these bright colored dome protecters at Six:02 and you should snag a couple this summer too. Don’t worry your pretty little head – the moisture wicking material keeps everything up top dry and the adjustable back makes this headgear perfect for any FitGirl beauty.
5. Fly Through Your Workout
I am not a fan of socks (or shoes really) – but thanks to the uber breathable Nike Flyknit Lunar2 I am now cool (literally and figuratively) with both. The mesh upper lining keeps my dogs dry even during the toughest workouts, plus this updated version has more stability without being heavy – genius. These kicks bring all the boys to yard so be ready to make friends during your next outdoor workout!
6. Throw Some Shade
Don’t let this sleek pair fool you, the Oakley Feedback in Honeydew Pearl/Black Grey Gradient are perfect for a run or for running errands. Plus when it comes to these frames there is more to them than what meets the eye – the ultra-feminine, lightweight wire frame, fixed hinges and no-snag nose pads (hello no tangling with your hair) makes these babies perfect for the oh so athletic beauty!
7. Back It Up Sis
What would a workout in the park be without a little glam. Tote all your equipment, water, snacks and even laptop in this super chic backpack from Kipling. The Kipling Seoul Metallic Backpack With Laptop Protection is too cute to boot in this Toasty Gold color. This large (but not bulky) backpack has compartments for days so don’t worry about bringing your organization A game. A must have indeed!
8. Resist The Urge To Skip Your Workout
My absolute favorite piece of equipment for outdoor workouts is the resistance band. These latex rubbery pieces of magic instantly makes majority of your favorite strength training moves portable and functional. I always travel with mine and even my clients have their own RAD bands “to make them dance” too. Get you one for only $12! I promise you that you wont regret it.
9. Fold And Go
Calling all yogis! If toting your yoga mat is a pain then I suggest you get a Khataland YoFoMat. Roll no more with this one of a kind (and award winning) foldable mat. When folded, it is compact (about the size of a large book) and therefore easy to carry (P.S. check out that little bag it comes in). Pick a color any color and get ready to pose whenever and wherever this summer.
10. Om My Goodness….Love This Flip Flop
Speaking of your yoga mat, if you love the way your feet feel in downward dog then you’re gonna love these “yoga mat like” Manduka Women’s Onward Sandals. With arch support built in and fun colors galore these flip flops are likely to make an appearance well after you namaste.
11. Sport This SPF Sis
The key to having safe fun in the sun ladies is SPF. But let’s be honest – there’s nothing worse than sunscreen running into your eyes during bootcamp. So unless you’re into that “oh my goodness I can’t see” feeling then I suggest you get the entire Coppertone Sport line. The lotion is great to layer on before you head out, the spray is perfect for touchups and the stick is super for traveling.
12. Infuse Some Fun Into Your H20
The more you sweat the more important hydrating properly is. But if you hate water then you just might be in a bind boo. Well that is if you haven’t been infusing some fun into your H20 that is. The Tritan Water BottleBTA 711 by AdNArt is such a sassy sipper! This high material is super impact resistant and I love stuffing fresh fruit in the infuser. My fav? Cucumber and lime.
