I promise I have not abandoned this blog-o-thing haha. You fabulous readers are always and forever on my mind! But I got time today!! I have a spin cycle playlist to share with you today, as well as the return of the fitness instructor GYM BAG! As you all know a lot of my free time lately has been dedicated to my side hustle teaching spin cycle classes at the gym so let’s do a little update. I think probably the most important thing to being a successful early morning instructor is having the RIGHT ESSENTIALS in your bag. It is a thing you guys…so let’s get straight to the gym bag and those jams.
–My all time favorite deodorant that I carry any and everywhere. I love the smell of this stuff so much low key I would wear it as a perfume. (Hey Dove, do you hear me?!) It’s just such a fresh and refreshing scent and lasts all day from teaching classes at 5:30 AM to producing and writing promos for TV at 9:30 AM. I’m all about things that smell good and are long lasting. All about that endurance, baby.
–Warm and Cozy body mist and lotion from Victoria’s Secret. I am going to be a sad panda bear if they ever get rid of this. LOVE putting this stuff on after the steam room / showering at the gym. They have travel sizes too which I love because they are easy to stash in the bag. The lotion is super hydrating too since I feel like my skin gets so dry in the cooler months. Plus it’s actually a great scent for spring time as well.
–The absolute best facial cleanser. Vitamin C and ginseng make this runnergirl/fitness instructor very happy.
–Cosmetic bag with fun sayings on it. Having uplifting things to look at when you’re half asleep getting ready will wake you up.
–Post workout slides. These don’t necessarily go in the bag but I love easy slides to put on after my feet have been through a high energy or tough workout.
–Snacks/ponytail holders/hydration. Yes those all go in the same category haha. Love dried fruit/nuts/coconut water before during and post workout since I go straight to work after teaching and getting ready at the gym.
And without further ado let’s gets straight to the jams this week! Check out where I’m teaching spin class next here and email me for a free pass to my class if you’re not a member!!
