Winter is here Kentucky. We skipped right past fall and landed in the cold, wet, gross part of the year before we see any real snow and no sunshine.. in 3 dang days.. (please get that reference.. Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow?? ) Anyways, it’s the time of year when we don’t want to be outside, and I don’t know about you but I go stir crazy always having to be inside- so working out is absolutely necessary.. as is getting new workout gear. (Somehow new workout gear always makes me happier when thinking about going to the gym and we gals know that women’s workout gear wears out SO fast!) Amazon is my go to for good quality but realtively inexpensive workout gear. It’s also easy to exchange sizes, colors, etc., so if you don’t already have Amazon Prime- you totally should. I also believe in getting quality pieces for less so all of the athletic wear listed is less than $40 for each individual piece and sometimes just for the set!
A must have of mine a high impact sports bra. I cannot do a full workout without one so as you can imagine – I’m always on the hunt for a good one but also an inexpensive one. (They can get incredibly pricey!) For me as much as we do outside, my job etc, I need them to last me a while. This particular company has done a great job with their high impact bra and they have over 5,000 reviews on Amazon about how great it is. (Click here for the High Impact Bra.) I also buy another set of sports bras just to have for hikes etc. that are medium impact. This saves my pricier high impact bras from wearing out so fast & this set of 4 is great with 6,000+ reviews! (For reference I’m a 34D and I wear a large in the high impact and a medium in the medium impact.)
90 Degrees by Reflex
The next two items are from my personal favorite brand of Amazon athletic wear: 90 Degrees by Reflex. I currently own about 4 pairs of their leggings because they’re just that good. Not see through, no chafing and they don’t wear out quickly! The jacket I linked here is just a great easy to throw on jacket over any workout wear for the fall/winter that makes youlook a bit more sleek if you need to run errands around town after (which I do frequently)! (In the products section below I also linked a really great fleece throw over jacket that’s not expensive and gets great reviews for those colder days!) ( For size reference: I’m a size 8-10 and I wear a medium in all three.)
Non-Chafing Long Sleeves
Long sleeve tops that don’t chafe are a must have in the winter as well. These are two really great options, that look chic as well as being at great price points! The white mesh, tie-back is linked here, and the sweat-wicking purple top is linked here. (For size reference: I’m a size 8-10 and I wear a medium in both)
When it comes to working out, I feel completely naked without my apple watch. Truly, I just do. When I lost mine, and had to get a replacement, I ordered and it came to my house from Amazon the same day! I got the the series 2 which Amazon doesn’t seem to keep in stock anymore but I’ve been considering upgrading and this is the one I would go with! Its the new model Series 5. (It looks so good my hubs now want’s one and he’s sort of been opposed for while.. He’s now considering ‘losing’ his old watch as well! ) As with all things techy, I’ve also found that wireless headphones are an absolute necessity now. The feeling of a cord attached to my headphones hitting me in the neck while running drives me crazy! So here are the Apple Airpods you know you can’t live without.. and the best carrying case for them! ( See the products below for the Series 5 Apple Watch, Airpods and the Airpod carrying case!) The carrying case is linked here, because it truly was the smartest thing Ev bought to go with his Airpods!
