Just as the perfect little black dress can boost your confidence level on a night out, certain fitness items have the power to make you work harder and feel better in the gym. Whether it’s a piece of equipment or a hot pair of leggings, it's important to find what helps you stick with your routine and feel strong and sexy in the process. For me, the following 10 items do the trick.

These portable muscle toners are another ideal piece of equipment to bring on the road. There are so many different ways to use them, but here are three of my favorites:
1. To tone my biceps, I hold the weights in front of my body (elbows off waist) and curl them in for 30 reps.
2. To keep the backs of my arms trim and tight, I do triceps extensions (Click here for a detailed description).
3. Finally, I use these weights to do shoulder and postural work. This involves T’s, Y’s, and W’s, which are some of the most under-appreciated exercises (Get details here!).
