Happy 2023! We are so excited to kick off the new year and work towards being our very best selves! This year is a little bit different for me when it comes to setting health and fitness goals because we just found out we are PREGNANT! Although this does present some changes to my goals I still plan to work towards having the healthiest and most fit pregnancy possible! What would you like to achieve for yourself in 2023?
Home fitness is a great way to work towards health and fitness goals, and I want to share with you our top recommended fitness items to outfit your home gym to help you hit your fitness goals!

The year 2022 has been a huge change for me, I went from being an avid runner to becoming a Peloton junkie and I just can’t seem to get enough of spinning classes! Getting serious about cycling has been a blast and allowed for some serious retail therapy! If you or someone you know loves taking spin classes, then check out the list below for all of my favorite things to kick that booty straight into shape! Also, check out all our very favorite spin bikes here!
Our very favorite pair of spin shoes. They are tried and true and work great for both males and females.
Who doesn’t love jamming out to some serious tunes while working up a sweat?! I know for me that music is the best way to get me motivated to really crush a hard workout, and I must have some loud and crisp music for that full effect while working out! Here you will find some of the best music-related items to really rev up your workout!
These noise-canceling headphones are the best on the market, and they are a wonderful gift for any music lover!
Those long lean muscles that you achieve through Barre and Pilates are simply amazing! In order to get the most out of Barre and Pilates we recommend having at least a few of the items below on hand. Many of these items are wonderful gift ideas for those of us who are getting into Barre and Pilates and want to step it up a notch!
We love Barre and Pilates because it’s another form of exercise that can be done with minimal equipment and classes can be found for FREE on Youtube…does it get any better than that?! If you are looking into working out from home, this may be a great way to start!
For free Barre classes on Youtube, we recommend Andrea Robertson. Check out her Youtube page here
For free Pilates classes we recommend Move With Nicole. Check her Youtube page out here!
A pilates mat is a bit thicker than a standard yoga mat. This mat provides the perfect amount of cushion for a great pilates workout.
This Booty Kicker is the perfect addition to a home gym because it easily folds up to be stowed away. It offers the support that is necessary for doing Barre workouts and is of excellent quality! We highly recommend the Botty Kicker for any Barre lover!
Running is such a beautiful form of exercize that can be done nearly anywhere! I find the easiest way for me to workup a good sweat is through running. My guilty pleasure is purchsing myself a new pair of running should about every 4 months because i wear mine out so quickly. If you know a runner in your life…the best gift you can give is a new pair of running kicks! Take a look at some of our favorite things for runners, we hope you love what you find!
I am an avid runner and the Books Adrenaline are hands down the best running shoes for men and women on the market! Check out the reviews…they speak for themselves!
We have all been there….”do I have to get out of bed”….”I will start tomorrow”…..” I’m too tired today”… The excuses can oftentimes be endless for why we find it difficult to work out or get into a regular routine of working out. The best advice I can give is… STOP YOUR BITCHIN’ AND JUST DO IT! After a couple of weeks of consistency, you will love how you feel and you will have created a HABIT, I should know…I get up religiously 7 days a week at 4:45 AM and I love it…it feeds my soul! Here are my favorite items to help get you motivated to get MOVING!
OK, it’s time to start working out…but before you start make sure you have what you need to stay hydrated! This top-of-the-line water bottle is sure to keep you hydrated while you are working up a sweat!
For those of us that struggle to find the motivation to work out…here is a tip, get yourself some new shoes to get you excited about working out! These are our very favorite shoes for men and women, they work phenomenally for running as well as cross-training.
If you do not yet have an Apple Watch and you are about to start working out…then now is the time! Track your steps, and your workouts, and get notified on your watch while working out rather than checking your phone…It’s the best!
Getting into working out can cause some serious pain in our muscles! It’s essential to keep our muscles feeling their best so we can keep working hard! This muscle roller will help with blood circulation and keeping any soreness at bay! It also would make for a wonderful gift for anyone..whether they work out or not, it feels wonderful on the muscles!
