“If you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good, you play good” – Deion Sanders (NFL star and coach)

It’s that time of year again – the holiday season. Shortly after, it will be time to make New Year’s resolutions, that is, to get back to routines. If you’re planning on making the gym part of your New Year’s goals, you need to start with some new gym clothes. With Black Friday approaching, there are plenty of deals with my favorite gym brands like Gymshark and Alphalete. Gymshark started its sale earlier this year on Thursday, November 17 at 11:00 AM EST, and sales are up to 60% off! Alphalete began its Black Friday sales on Saturday, November 19 at 1:00 p.m. EST. It’s the perfect time to grab those cute sports outfits you’ve been coveting. Personally, having cute new gym clothes is my motivation for going to the gym.

Here is a list of my favorite gym items that every girl needs:

  1. Sportswear: My favorite sportswear is
    1. Alphalete Amplify Leggings/Shorts.
      1. These leggings are minimalist with a little branding and the perfect booty scrunch. They come in multiple color options ranging from hot pink to neutrals. You can use discount code ‘ALPHA10’ or any athlete code for 10% off your purchase.
    2. Gymshark Workout Sports Bra
      1. My current favorite Gymshark workout bra is the minimalist sports bra. I like to show off my back and you can remove the straps for a backless look. They also have other options for girls with larger breasts. Gymshark also offers an additional 10% student discount on your entire purchase.
    3. NVGTN
      1. These leggings/shorts are known to hug your glutes and emphasize your curves in all the right places. They advertise that their leggings and shorts should be worn like you have a wedgie.
    4. Dupes of Amazon
      1. A few more affordable options from Aurola’s Alphalete Amplify dupes.
      2. Another open back sports bra from Aojox is the Dupe from Crop Shop Boutique.
  1. Shoes
    1. Converse and Nike Blazers: These are stylish and versatile inside and outside the gym. They have a flat sole, perfect for leg day.
    2. Notorious Lift: For those who love weightlifting, you need this. However, you don’t have to be a powerlifter to wear them. I love doing squats and deadlifts in it! These shoes give the impression of being barefoot and have thin soles with non-slip grip.
  1. Lifting accessories
    1. Superior Equipment: They have all the colored lifting belts, lifting straps, wrists, ankles, dumbbell pads and resistance bands. Their Black Friday sale will begin on Tuesday, November 22 at 12:00 PM EST.
    2. Gymshark Duffel Bag: Along with all of your accessories and other necessities, you need a bag to carry it all. Gymshark has a variety of sizes and colors. My personal favorite is the Everyday mini backpack. I use it for the gym and also for travel. It holds the perfect amount for me, and you’d be surprised how much it can hold.
  2. Supplements
    1. PE Science: PE Science has my favorite proteins and supplements. Each order also comes with free samples of other supplements. If you like pre-workouts that lead to less jitters, they have the prolific options or a caffeine-free pre-workout for that pump.
