Hey! This page is dedicated to all my favorite resources for fitness. Websites I use, equipment, clothes, healthy food ideas…all of it.
I have a few fitness websites I go to daily:
Yoga By Candace-My number 1 for yoga. She’s super inspirational and is where I go for all my yoga workouts. There’s a video for every yoga imaginable with some HIIT workouts up as well. Check her out!
Rachel Brathen-Another great yoga website. Also, she’s super fun to follow on snapchat!
Crossfit.com -My husband is super into crossfit and I have found many of the workouts to be amazing. Crossfit.com has a WOD up daily along with a great demo page with a bunch of different exercises you can do.
Blonde Ponytail-Another great fitness blogger. I started following her when I was first trying to lose some babyweight. Her workouts are quick and efficient.
Pumps and Iron– Great website. Lots of workouts that you can do from home which is awesome. Plus some fashion, recipes, and life posts.
Ok…one thing to know about me..I’m not a fan of working out at a gym. Here are some essentials you can have on hand at home for a great workout.
Kettlebells-Get a few in different sizes if you can. They are extremely versatile.
Dumbbells- Great way to add weight to any exercise.
What I’ve learned from doing yoga is that you really don’t need much to start out. You can actually do yoga without any equipment at all. If you want the basics, I recommend a yoga mat and at least two yoga blocks. You can always add to your collection.
Yoga Mat– When it comes to yoga mats, there are a ton out there. Get one that feels good to you. You don’t want one too thick or it might mess with your balancing but too thin and your knees could hurt if you’re practicing on a hard surface. Some cost $15 to $30 dollars others can be $50 plus. A good quality mat is worth it but there are options if they’re not in your budget. Here are a few that I like or have heard really good things about put again, get one that works best for you:
Yoga Blocks-Yoga blocks are really helpful when you’re just starting out to help hold poses and increase flexibility. Again there are tons of options so pick one that works best for you. If you don’t have the money for one, don’t worry about it. Grab something similar from around the house. I’ve used books in a pinch and it works mostly the same. Clever yoga makes a great yoga block or you could look into trying a cork block. Again, whatever works best for you.
Yoga Strap- Straps help to increase flexibility and help you to keep good posture and form when working on getting new or more advanced yoga poses. I LOVE mine.
Yoga Wheel-Yoga wheels are amazing to improve flexibility and help release muscle tension. I LOVE them. Clever yoga and YogaDev both make great ones.
Bolsters-Another great yoga prop. Bolsters help mostly in restorative yoga but can really be used in anything. It can help open the heart, get you deeper into some yoga poses, and even a giant pillow for a nap!
