workout essentials

Regular exercising not just keeps you fit but also makes you feel good. It not rev up your energy levels but also helps in improving your mood. A regular workout can help in getting better sleep. It can also help some people who are suffering from mild depression. It not just helps in losing weight but also in lowering the risk of many diseases like obesity, High BP and many more. Considering the benefits to the body and mind, it’s easy to see why exercise is wise. And the great thing about exercise is that it’s not essential to hit a gym all the time. A simple exercising routine of 20 minutes is also good to keep you in shape. Even the small things, like a walk or a jog or even climbing up the stairs, are good enough to make a difference. I have seen a lot of people are consistent with their routine, but they still forget the workout essentials that are sure to make the exercise easier giving out better results. Also, by ignoring these, they’re risking injuries. So, do check out this list of workout essentials that fit in almost every budget and workout style.

Sports Bra

Nothing can be more irritating than straps falling down or hooks becoming loose or the sweaty straps giving you an itch when you are trying to do an intense workout. Wearing a sports bra while exercising, not just gives you comfort but also helps to keep the breast in shape by giving them a proper support. By wearing a sports bra you are also able to regulate the feeling of being sweaty as most are made out of fabrics that won’t make you as hot and sweaty.

Nowadays, there are different types of sports bra available. Important is to identify which one is perfect for you? Choosing the right bra depends on your preference and activity level. Like for yoga, you’ll need a sports bra that gives you a right support and comfort but is not very restricting. But while you’re doing Aerobics or running you definitely need a sports bra that is restricting enough to prevent bounce and jiggle.

Your workout may involve running, walking, aerobics, any sports or gyming. For all, a decent sports shoes are a must. Inappropriate shoes can needlessly cause you an injury and derail your fitness programme. Investing in a quality shoe can help you to prevent any injury and make your workout a more pleasant and comfortable experience.

Yoga Mat

Having your own gym mat has various benefits. You can create your workout space, anywhere you wish to!! It can be a beach, your garden or even your home. Setting out a mat will help you define your workout area and also create a  mental space and a piece of motivation that you need to exercise and keep yourself fit. At least for me, this has been a source of motivation.

Water bottle

If you are a workout enthusiast, then keeping yourself hydrated is very important. One should drink water before the workout as you tend to lose water while you exercise even without heavy perspiration. Proper hydration not just improves the quality of your workout but also reduces fatigue and increases your level of satisfaction. Hence your workout essentials list isn’t complete without a quality water bottle. Make sure its BPA free.

Fitness Tracker

It’s important to keep a track of your fitness regime. This not only keeps you aware of how well you are doing but also motivates you to break your own records. There are many such apps that can be downloaded right on your smartphones to help you track your workout. You can even get smartwatches if that fits in your budget.


Sunlight contains harmful ultraviolet radiation which ages the skin causing wrinkles and also leading to diseases like skin cancer. Sunscreen is necessary to keep your skin safe, while you exercise outdoors, even on non-sunny days. You should go for water-resistant sunscreen because you will be sweating. Apply sunscreen liberally to your legs, arms, face, neck and back.

So, have you packed all of these workout essentials in your gym bag?
