I always view Spring as a great time to start fresh and try new things. The seasonal burst of energy comes natural with sunny skies and warmer days, and it’s always a great time to reevaluate fitness and wellness products and routines. Here are a few of my favs if you’re interested in trying something new! There are a few affiliate links, which means if you buy something through one of the links you won't pay a penny more, but RGF will get a small commission which helps to keep this movement going. :)
Showering after each workout just isn’t an option, and these are my two favorite clean hair extenders. Bumble and Bumble’s All Style Blow Dry and Prêt-à-powder Très Invisible Dry Shampoo are daily staples that absorb oil and sweat so my hair is fresh(ish) after all the sweats! Thanks to Parlor Blow Dry Bar for introducing me to these products.
2. FRÉ Skincare
Spring clean your skincare routine with my favorite, all-natural skincare line. FRÉ skincare specializes in combatting workout-induced skin damage caused by the combination of sweat, intense exercise and sun. My favorite is The Glow Set! Use code "RALEIGH" for a great discount!
Forget a new clean tank top or need to freshen your shoes before you put them in your gym bag? No worries – try my favorite eco friendly spray that cleans and protects. I also love the complimentary laundry detergent.
The market for athleisure is just incredible now, but I consistently keep Lululemon staples in my closet. My favorite pant? The traditional Wunder Under. Basic, consistent and comfortable.
My favorite way to work the core and posterior chain when I don’t have an X-Former handy! Grab these inexpensive sliders and get a high intensity/low impact workout anywhere – at home or on the go!
I’m a huge believer in foam rolling. It helps tremendously, it’s easy and it works. But get a good one. I like the TriggerPoint Grid Foam Roller because of the various surfaces – it’s a nightly staple on my quads!
