"Now this is for some high quality H20! I'm kinda obsessed with S'well bottles ($42; swellbottle.com), not just because of their sleek design, but because they keep my drinks hot or cold for twelve hours."

"I feel like I'm always carrying a million things around, and when regular headphones are involved, it usually means they're getting tangled up in those millions of things. I switched to wireless ones by Beats by Dre ($199.95, beatsbydre.com) and suddenly my gym experience became a little bit easier."

"Current obsession: myofascial release. It's a way to release muscle tightness and target trigger points. You can usually find me on the ground, rolling around on one of these balls ($17; amazon.com) for several hours at a time."

"If I had to choose one light jacket to live in the rest of my life, this one ($345; bandier.com) would be it. Besides that fact that it's black, the two different fabrics make it texturally interesting in a subtle way, and I love the somewhat boxy cut."

"I've been living in this tank top ($95; belo-forte.com) at my spin classes and in between. The fabric is moisture-wicking, which is a huge plus while working out, and I like that the cut is different than most tanks I own. It's a win-win!"
