Obe Fitness App

27

If you don’t like to workout, Obe might just change your mind. There are over 5,000 on-demand classes and a daily live schedule. If you get lucky, the instructors will give you a shout out. It makes me feel like I am back in group fitness classes that I desperately miss!

Amazon
Bala Bangles
$
49

These are not your mom’s velcro ankle weights. The sleek one-size-fits-all design makes them a perfect companion for a long walk or when you want to level up a sculpt class.

Target
Dumbells
$
4

Right before quarantine, I randomly invested in five- and ten-pound dumbbells to keep at home. I use them for strength training and yoga sculpt. Bonus: they’re easy to store.

Dolan
Running Mask Set
$
15

I haven’t been as inspired as I was before quarantine, but I still try to run a few miles once a week. After trial and error with a bunch of masks, this has been the best for comfort, breathability, and staying put.

Manduka
Pro Yoga Mat
$
120

I’ve had this mat for years and it has been through hundreds of hot yoga classes and outdoor workouts— it’s still going strong. It is heavy duty and is just the right amount of thickness not to annoy your downstairs neighbor during jump squats.

Lululemon
Align Pant
$
98

I have never met a Lululemon pant/short I didn’t like. Their material is unparalleled and I appreciate how the high-rise is both flattering and functional. Even working out alone inside, I feel way more motivated wearing cute and comfortable activewear.

Amazon
Muse Bath Apothecary Mat Cleaner
$
15

Since I use my yoga mat daily, it's important to keep it clean and smelling fresh. The fresh mint and eucalyptus scent offer a little aromatherapy to set the mood.

Apple
Apple Watch SE
$
259

I have been using my Apple Watch more than ever during quarantine. I track all my workouts, and set a realistic step goal that encourages me to make sure to spend enough time outside and away from my computer screen.

Target
Women's JoyLab High Neck Brushed Jersey Bra
$
20

This low-impact bra top pairs perfectly with my high-rise leggings. It’s great for yoga and pilates and I’ve even thrown it on when I’m not working out since it is comfortable and soft.

Amazon
Resistance Bands
$
11

These bands are no-brainer. They take up virtually no space, are affordable, and are a great alternative to dumbbells.

Lululemon
Lift and Lengthen Yoga Block
$
18

If you’re a yoga enthusiast like me, then these are really helpful for practice. Especially after sitting at my computer during a long day, I get a lot of relief putting one under my lower back and laying on the floor.

Amazon
TriggerPoint Foam Roller
$
35

I have a love-hate relationship with foam rolling, but my body has been extra out of whack with everything going on this year. I always feel better after taking the time to roll out my sore muscles.

Urban Outfitters
Tangram Factory Rookie Smart Jump Rope
$
40

I am a newbie when it comes to jumping rope, but I like the efficiency, the fact that it gets me outside, and how effective it is even just for a few minutes a day. This smart jump rope helps keep track of my activity.
