My Summer Fitness Wish List… In Case You Haven’t Read 20 Other Bloggers’ Already

July 2, 2015

A few weeks ago I did a post on my current travel wishlist. Today, inspired by Kat Horrok’s post, I’m breaking down what’s on my gymbag’s current fitness wish list (and yes, I knowwwww this isn’t the most original post but I’m currently on a bus to Philly. Cut me some slack, yeah?).

I always feel a little greedy when making wish list posts because I honestly already have so much that I don’t really use but wishing is also a good way to get your goals in check and shows ambition. A little ambition never killed nobody right?



1. HidrateMe Smart Water Bottle

If you guys haven’t heard about this, it’s about time. Firstly, let me say I’m kind of tech obsessed. If it seems useful and is techy, I’ll probably love it. This is a water bottle that links to an app to help get you fully hydrated. Check out their Kickstarter asap.

2. Foam Rollers

I love foam rollers; they work MAGIC on sore muscles (and preventing them) but I have yet to call one my own. This one seems to be the perfect size and those groves seem perfect for a nice roll (lol, that’s totally something people say…).

3. Matcha Powder

I fell in love with matcha a looooong time ago (admittedly, Starbucks actually introduced us) but I haven’t had it at home for the longest time. I’d love to try some of the funky matcha muffin and cake recipes that seem to be popping up everywhere.

4. A Strapy Back Sports Bra

Hi, I’m mainstream. I know you’re probably rolling your eyes and waiting for a Lululemon link (it’s actually Victoria’s Secret, ha….). But I actually really do like strapy-backed sports bras because they’re so much cooler (like temperature-wise) and this one even has a hook; there are few things worse than struggling out of a sweaty sports bra.

5. Medicine Ball

I have weights and jump-ropes at home. What I don’t have is a medicine ball. I think this would make squats more fun (okay, maybe not fun, but more valuable) and I’m sure there are a bunch of other moves I could use this for.


So that’s all. As you can see, it’s a bit of a mix between equipment, apparel and supplements.
What does your fitness wishlist include? Have you tried matcha?!

PS. I’d love to hear what you think of the image layout. xx

    I would love to make a matcha frappe or something using it, it tastes amazing but it’s pretty difficult to find! That water bottle sounds amazing oh my gosh now I want it too haha! Awesome post sweetheart. xxxxxx

    I actually own a foam roller and just bought the matcha powder, though I’ve yet to use it Foam rollers at home are awesome, because you can roll out while listening to a podcast or watching a video and it allows for me to ignore the pain a little better lol.

    Also, I use med balls pretty much weekly, and they’re definitely good for not only squats, but ab workouts, coordination, balance, so much!

    haha I always feel like if I buy more stuff or cute workout clothes it will motivate me to workout!

      Totally agree! There’s no better motivation than a new shirt haha. xx

    I run on a daily basis because I am participating in a school sport. That is why I bought a foam roller. However, do consider buying a massage roller stick. I personally believe that both rollers do the same. The only difference is the way you use it. The foam roller requires you to go on the floor and use your whole body to move the roller. As to the roller stick, it only requires your arms and hands. Both have their ups and downs. : ) (Coming soon…)

      Oh cool, I hadn’t thought about a roller stick. I’ll definitely look into it. Thanks for reading!!

    Ahhh, matcha is just the best! Just emptied the last box I brought back from China last year, so I can’t wait to move to Hong Kong next month and have matcha everything around me everywhere I go! 😛

      It sounds like it’d be good for evvvvverything! So jealous you’re MOVING to Hong Kong. That’s awesome! Good luck! xx
