What does your summer gym bag need in it! Here are 3 of the things that I don’t leave home without!
1- Sunscreen- I must admit that I have tried a few different types of sunscreen, mostly because I burn and turn into a lobster shortly after being in the sun. If you have ever vacationed with me or played a sport with me, you’ve probably at some point been asked to help me apply sunscreen to my back. You’re welcome. My skin thanks you. Don’t be embarrassed or think it’s not cool to put on the sunscreen. I’ve been there; I’ve blistered. Just don’t. If you’re outdoors for any sport, make sunscreen your best bud! Coppertone SPORT is my absolutely favourite!
2- Water.. (or Wahta, whichever you prefer really.) Make sure you bring some with you wherever you go. You never know when you’ll be stuck outside in the heat, or on a smelly streetcar. When you’re playing sports or running, make sure you bring some with you in your fuel belt or in a large water bottle. No sun/heat stroke for you! Sometimes when water feels like it’s just not enough, grab some Wahta and try it out. Fun to say and drink, it’s a new one that I love to carry around.
3– Nuun Energy– I was asked to review these, and I absolutely love these tablets. I have tried the Cherry Limeade and they’re my favourite so far. They give me that little boost of energy that I need in the afternoon to keep me on track for my upcoming workouts in the early evenings! I’m must confess I used to have soda in the afternoon, but I’m trying to give it up. This is a great alternative for me. I don’t drink coffee, so this is my only source of caffeine.
Happy Summer, guys! Hope the heat treats you well!
