My favorite water bottle is the CamelBak Podium Chill.  It comes in a variety of colors, so each of my family members has their very own color. 😉 I love that it doesn’t spill because of the jet valve. It has a lifetime guarantee, too!

Product Description from CamelBak: “CamelBak Podium Chill is a high performance insulated sport bottle that keeps your water cooler longer. A double-walled bottle construction uses closed cell foam technology to keep your water cold twice as long as a standard bottle. The patented spill-proof, self-sealing Jet Valve allows the user to hydrate immediately without having to open or close a drinking interface and the bottle’s streamlined ergonomic design offers excellent squeezability without compromising bottle grip. The large aperture of the drinking nozzle generates an exceptional water flow rate and is easy to remove for thorough cleaning. The Podium Chill also has a lockout dial with easy to read graphics for leak-proof transport.”

This Marcy Adjustable Utility Weight Bench is the bench that I’ve used several times per week for the last 2 years, and it still looks in PERFECT condition! I would definitely recommend it to you for an affordable bench if you need one for your home gym. 🙂

  • Deluxe boxed upholstery made of top-grade, high-density foam
  • 6-position back pad adjusts from flat to incline to decline
  • Adapts to fit most squat racks, half cages, and Smith machines

Kettlebells are a tricky purchase. You want *just* the right feel to your kettlebell. The handle has to feel right in your hand. Not too slick. Not too rough. Not too thick. And not too thin. You want a high-quality cast, solid kettlebell. This kettlebell has been my favorite, budget-friendly one by far!  I have two 30 lb kettlebells from this brand. My husband and I both love them!

From the manufacturer:

  • Single Cast
  • 1.5 Inch Handle
  • Convenient color-coded marking to make size selection easier
  • Both lb and kg sizing options are available

The Airex Balance Pad is THE solution for painful hip thrusters.  Although the listed purpose of the pad is for balance and mobility training, the tear-resistant feature allows me to put a ton of weight on it to perform heavy hip thrusters without pain for the barbell. #HugeDeal 😉

From the manufacturer:

  • Great for balance, mobility, standing stability, and motor-skill training
  • Improve joint stability through moderate instability
  • Pads will not absorb water and are pre-sanitized
  • Tear-resistant foam for long-time use
  • Available in multiple sizes

The PedEgg foot file is great for your HANDS too! I use it 1-2 times each week to file down the calluses on my hands from lifting weights. I don’t recommend filing the calluses down as far as they will go as you need that protective layer when lifting weights. However, large calluses will tear open more easily leaving you with sore, bleeding hands. No bueno. 🙁

From the manufacturer: “Gently removes callous, dry skin. Safe to the touch. Ergonomic design. Traps shavings – no mess. So gentle, won’t burst a balloon! Easy no-mess disposal.”

The OXO Salad Chopper is a great tool to help you eat LOTS of veggies in one biggie salad. 🙂

From the manufacturer: “Eating a full day’s dose of fresh produce gets easier and quicker with Oxo’s two-piece salad chopper set. Designed to let you chop ingredients without transferring them to and from a cutting board, the set includes a rimmed bowl and a rolling chopper hand tool. The tool sports double circular blades made from stainless steel for efficient slicing of greens, veggies, fruit, cheese, and meat. An angled, soft-grip handle makes the work safer and more comfortable. Fashioned from durable white plastic, the bowl has a continuous inner curve to create constant contact with the blades, and its gripper rim simplifies chopping rotation. With a 5-1/2-quart capacity, the set easily cranks out salad for a group, and for easy cleanup, both bowl and chopper go in the dishwasher.”

The Spiralizer helps our family replace high carb, starchy noodles with fresh veggies! Turn any pasta meal into a gluten-free, Paleo-friendly, healthier version of the original. We love using it with zucchini. 🙂

The Gymboss Interval Timer and Stopwatch is a great addition to your workout equipment. I love it for tabata and other timed workouts. I also use it on when I do intervals on a bike or treadmill. It’s programmable to fit any need that comes up!

As a woman with a full plate, I just don’t have time to wash my hair every single day. Maybe I’m alone, but it takes me so long to wash, dry, and style it. (I do take daily baths but only wash my hair every 2- (sometimes) 3 days per week.)

My solution is Batiste Dry Shampoo!

This stuff saves my hair from the wear and tear of washing and DRYing!!! Why Batiste? Well, I’ve tried Suave and Pantene and neither compare. When I tried this brand, I was SOLD on the superiority of it. 🙂
