Condiments, seasonings, ingredients, etc:

- Golds Gym Total Body Suspension Training System (This one is so much cheaper than the name brand and works well)
- Adjustable weight vest (Great for weighted sprints, stair climbing, progression from bodyweight exercises, etc.)
- Pull up/push up bar: Makes the basics more convenient.
- Grip pads/gloves: (I have these, because I personally prefer grips to gloves). I rarely do a workout without using these at some point. They make holding dumbbells and barbells much less painful LOL. Also… Muscle on ladies=sexy. Calluses on ladies=not sexy.
- Resistance bands: Use for assisted pull ups, warm up, alternative to weights, etc.
- Jump rope: Good for warm-ups and cardio intervals.
- Water bottle: It is super important to make sure that you stay hydrated while you’re exercising. To me, it is worth paying a little extra for sweat proof and a locking lid so you don’t have a mess. I carry my water bottle everywhere, and don’t need it dripping all over my desk at work, and I am bad about knocking things over.
- Clicker counter: To keep track of laps, sets, etc. if you’re like me and frequently zone out listening to podcasts, music, audio books, etc. while exercising.

- Quest bars
- Jolly Time Kettle Corn (100 calorie bags)
- RxBars ($5 off your first order here)
- Craving Cocoa (BCAAs + cocoa + fiber supplement that is sweetened with stevia which helps control hunger, energy levels, and prevent cravings) (1 time purchase, every other month subscription, every month subscription)
