5 Workout Essentials You Need To Own

June 2, 2017
Workout Essentials

We get it. Some days you feel like powering through your best workout ever. Other days, you feel like power napping is essential – especially after a super busy day. We say, ‘go for the nap, then go for the workout.’ Napping may be just the boost you need to breeze through your next amazing workout. The key is to get your pulse going and your body moving, right? So, after you’ve had that essential nap, grab your gym bag and be sure to pack these five essentials from Gordmans to keep yourself cool, comfortable and content during your next sweat session:

Workout Gear

Tanks That Can Take The Heat

The right top can make or break your workout – and we think a performance-knit tank is a no-brainer for ultimate comfort. No sleeves to restrict movement. No too-tight necklines. Good ventilation where it counts. Tanks have everything going for them (& you) when it comes to style and comfort for your most demanding routines.

Check out the newest styles at your nearest Gordmans!

Workout Gloves That Serve To Protect

Essential for any activity that requires grip, workout gloves provide an extra layer of padding and protection. Shield your hands from wear and tear (and callouses and blisters) while lifting weights, performing floor exercises, doing pull-ups, riding stationary bikes and other similar exercises. You’ll thank yourself later. So will your hands.

Workout Gloves

Capris That Show A Little Skin

Made to move with you, not against you, performance capris are everything for gym workouts to outdoor running. For those who want more coverage than shorts provide, but less coverage than long bottoms, capris are a happy medium. Because your ankles are exposed, they tend to be a bit cooler – and that’s a good thing!

Muscle Roller Sticks For Much-Kneaded Relief

Muscle RollerIt’s the piece you don’t know you need, until you try it and then wonder what you did without it. Yep, this is that piece. What looks like a folded umbrella actually provides relief to tired and sore muscles – and it’s super easy to use. Just roll it over those areas where you feel discomfort to massage, relax and relieve muscle soreness and stiffness for quicker recovery after workouts. (Think of it as a rolling pin for your muscles.)

Ear Buds To Make Time Fly 

Workouts seeming a bit long? Ear buds can help speed up your workouts – by way of your smartphone or your gym’s TVs. For outdoorEar Buds or indoor workouts, just plug ear buds into your smartphone to jam to your song list while working up a sweat. Or, plug into your gym’s TV bank to watch your fave programs. You’ll be amazed at how quickly the minutes tick away.

Finally, an essential workout tip: fight boredom by varying your workouts. Exercising in the same manner, with the same gear at the same time and place is bound to get  boring. Try mood-boosting yoga. A ballet-inspired barre workout. Kickboxing. Weight training. Chances are, you have many options available. Variety is the spice of life – and a good workout. So, get your sweat on and get moving in new and different directions.
