In my opinion, one of the most challenging aspects of fitness is stepping outside of my comfort zone. As humans, it’s only natural that we have a little self-doubt every now and then. In all honesty, there are many times where I’ve questioned my capabilities and second guessed my ability to perform a certain exercise. However, it is such a reward once I push past those barriers of not letting anything get in my way and achieve a goal I’ve been aiming towards.

We as women, tend to allow our periods to overcome us as well. Whether it’s a physical or emotional barrier, it’s important to work through them by continuing to stay strong and positive throughout the process. Therefore, I’ve teamed up with U by Kotex® to introduce the new U by Kotex® FITNESS* line, including tampons, that  come with a plastic FITPAK (so you can protect your protection). They are durable, compact, and discreet. Additionally, U by Kotex® FITNESS* liners and ultra thin pads are also available with shape to fit and flex with your body. What I love about these are their discreet packaging, so you aren’t flashing a giant box of tampons in your gym bag!

Honestly, I’m not one of those girls who brings her whole life in her gym bag. Some of my gym bag essentials are fairly basic:

– Water bottle
– Cell phone
– Weightlifting gloves
– Sunglasses (for the walk or drive over)
– Headphones
– U by Kotex® FITNESS* Tampons
– Hairbrush
– Hair ties
– Alpha Aminos
– Sweatshirt
– Facial cleansing cloths
– Dry shampoo and dry conditioner
– Lip gloss (so I look like a human afterwards)
– Shaker cup with protein in it (for post-workout)

What are the must-haves in your gym bag?
