Yesterday, I shared with you my fitnessentials…aka the things that I own.. and use daily.. that help to keep me motivated to continue living a healthy, happy life.
I loved reading what your fitnessentials were! I think we can all agree that there are a number of things that maybe not be essential to staying fit,happy, and healthy through exercise, but are definitely things we dream of owning someday (hopefully soon!)
So, here are my top 5 Dream Fitnessentials
Now that I am starting to train for races and am into going on long runs outdoors, I really want one of these. They are a great piece of equipment to slap on your wrist because it tracks your run, mileage, pace per mile, etc. I think it would help me a lot when I am trying to do tempo runs – and am having a difficult time controlling my pace. So many runner-bloggies have one of these…so it is definitely near the top of my wish-list. Today, it just so happen that I was able to read Megan’s review of this bad boy.. which convinced me even more… that I.NEED.ONE.NOW!
Have you ever used one of these babies? Hot tamales.. it is a full body workout in a tiny package! The first time I used one of these was during group circuit training. I’ve done plenty of leg, arm, ab, chest and back exercises with this piece of equipment. I don’t get to use it much anymore since I now live over an hour away from my favorite trainer ever. A couple of weeks ago.. I saw one in my gym and my face lit up. Then I saw the girl it belonged to take it down and put it in her bad. Enter: heartbreak. Bottom line is – find somewhere that has one of these a try it out! Then try and steal it and mail it to me! Kidding. Kind of.
Yet another wonderful piece of fitness equipment that can truly train so many aspects of your body. Yes, these are available at practically every gym.. but these are my dreams. And I dream that I have one right in my living room..with my measly home gym.. consisting of a jump rope, yoga mat, and a set of 6lb dumbbells. I think I am in need of a home-fitness upgrade!
Yes please! Don’t get me wrong, I love a bargain and I search high and low for cost efficient fitness clothes. But, I have heard SUCH positive things about the Lululemon line of clothes.. and have never worn a piece of their ever-so-lovely clothing. Right now, it is definitely not something I can afford. I will be sticking to Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and the newest edition to my fitness apparel.. Forever 21.
Okay, okay.. so this may not necessarily be out of my price range, but I don’t own one. Between different running intervals, circuit training and other various fitness activities, an interval timer would make my life a heck of a lot easier. It is not an easy task to a. try and count to 60 in your head… or b. continuously look at your Polar F7 .. to figure out when the minute of BALLS TO THE WALL… INTENSE WORK.. has come to an end. So yes please to this as well! 🙂
Well lovelies.. that wraps out my top 5. A girl can dream.. can’t she! Don’t get me wrong.. if I had all of these things, I am sure there would still be more things I would want. But I am not the splurge kind of girl… and I am doing just fine with what I’ve got right now!
