Even if you finally get your workout outfits on fleek, a bad water bottle can kill the whole vibe. However, you will be the envy of gym rats everywhere if you carry one of these three bottles to your next workout.
The Original Little bkr
These glass water bottles are dishwasher safe, a must for any true workout hero. Obviously, being glass, they are BPA-free. Bkr bottles come in an array of amazing colors and sell for $35.00. And while it may not look like much, it isn’t until you carry the bottle to the gym that you realize how amazing it is. I’ve never spilled water on my shirt while taking a sip and it has a finger loop handle that makes toting it around super easy. It’s obvious that the bottle was designed with user experience in mind. Plus, the bottle comes in big, little and teeny. The big bottle can hold 2.5lb of water!
Bobble is on a mission to replace plastic bottles everywhere. And while the bobble comes in Classic, Sport, Infuse, Insulate, and Jug, it is the Insulate version that has caught our eye. Like most stainless steel bottles, it can keep your hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours and colds cold for up to 24. Unlike other stainless steel bottles, it is dishwasher safe. This is huge, as a previous owner of an expensive and non-dishwasher friendly water bottle, cough S’well cough, I can attest that a water bottle needs to go in the dishwasher from time-to-time to avoid smelling musky. The 15 oz Insulate is also BPA free and sweat proof. Best of all, you can snag one for $24.99.
This water bottle is a bit of a tease. After all, after raising over $600,000 in crowdfunding, the project is successfully funded, but not available for the masses. The 24oz Hidrate Spark is a water bottle that connects to a mobile app. The duo works together to track your water intake. If you need to take a sip, your water bottle will glow as a reminder. Never go thirsty again! And yes, just like the other bottles, Hidrate Spark is BPA free, but only semi-dishwasher safe. After all, it is technically an electronic device. And that means batteries and other things that shouldn’t go in the dishwasher. While you can put the bottle cavity and lid in the dishwasher, you cannot put the sensors in the dishwasher. Before washing, you must dismantle the bottle and there are parts that are hand wash only. A little inconvenient, but might be worth it to those that don’t naturally drink enough water to stay properly hydrated. Hidrate Spark is slated to ship in May and can be pre-ordered for $54.95.
If you leave home for an office each day, you’re going to need to take a lot of items with you; a laptop, files, lunch, phone and accessories, makeup, wallet, even a spare set of clothes if you’re heading out to a bar or the gym when you’re done. So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
