After a solid lifting session, it is nice to take off your exercise shoes and slip on cozy slippers. This slippers are at a low price point at $10, but pack a big punch.

Some lifts are tough to do at home! Resistance bands are fairly inexpensive and can be incredibly helpful when working on lifts like good mornings, lat pull downs, seated row, standing row, high row, and are amazing to help if you need some assistance during a pull-up. This set comes with four loop bands, which are perfect to let you select the exact resistance you need based on the lift you are doing. There are $22, and currently there is an extra 5% off if you check the discount box below the price.

Heavy Foam Plyo Box
Expand your options! This 3-in-1 box allows you to simply flip the box to another side to select a different height. The heaviness of the box helps it to stay put as you step or jump onto it. I made the mistake of buying the lighter weight box, thinking it would easier to transport, but I would have switched and bought this heavier weight box instead! The foam takes away the fear so you don’t have to worry about bashing your knee into the box if you miss a step. $199

Anatomical Heart T Shirt
Bland your love of art and science! I am a crazy fan of the art from Codex Anatomicus. (Go poke around on their website) Their art covers our home office, and I keep buying from them because they produce gorgeous anatomical art. This T-shirt is extremely soft and comfy. $35, Look for a coupon for 15% off on the site.
Easy Peasy Shorts
The name of these shorts makes me laugh. Your workout may not be easy peasy (because we get after it), but you’ll sure look like you’re having a blast. Don’t wear uncomfortable crap to exercise. I hate tugging on my shorts, or constantly adjusting my top. I love these shorts because they stay in place so your effort and attention can be focused on what is most important! On sale for $29
Wireless Curling Wand
If you’re always on the go and want your hair to look fresh, you can throw this in your bag and give yourself a quick refresh whenever you need to. I love the ability to charge it and take it with me whenever I need a quick pick me up. On sale for $49.
