Although getting sweaty in the gym is fantastic for your health, it’s not always ideal for your complexion. Making sure you’ve got face wipes suited for your skin to clear away, sweat and grime after a workout is essential for your skin. Whilst you sweat, your pores open up, and you don’t want to block them, so be sure to wear minimal make up during your workout to allow your skin to breathe properly
After a particularly strenuous workout it can be tempting to reach for the junk food, but stop your cravings in their tracks by planning ahead and keeping healthy snacks in your bag. Although fresh foods like fruit and nuts can be handy on the day, if you’re planning in advance, Protein Bars are a perfect way to feed your body without giving in to temptation. Carry a few with you at all times so you don’t get stuck in a jam without proper nutrition.
Seems straight forward no? You’d be surprised at just how many of us don’t take hydration seriously. By making sure you’ve got your water bottle with you at all times, you’re more likely to be conscious of keeping on top of it. Also, we often confuse feelings of thirst or dehydration with hunger, so keeping your water topped up can help keep those cravings at bay.
Can’t work out without music? Never fear, make sure you’ve always got a spare set with you and you don’t have to worry. It’s easier said than done buying two high-end sets of in ears, but even if you buy a low quality set as a backup and always keep them in your bag, you’ll never go without no matter what.
Life has a tendency to throw curve balls at us. An impromptu work meeting after a lunchtime session, a last minute coffee date with friends, it’s difficult to know what to expect. By keeping a spare set of clothes with you at all times, you can change straight after training without having to sit around in wet gym gear.
