My Summer 2020 Fitness Essentials

The summer of 2020 has been an interesting time to try to do anything, let alone work out. Not only do we have restrictions on where and how to workout because of Covid-19, but it’s also SO HOT outside. 

These are the products that have helped me stay active:

Biker Shorts

I have lived in biker shorts all summer. I wear them to work out, to work from home, to go to the store in, and sometimes to sleep in. This is a must-have for me.

Lululemon Wunder Train High-Rise Short 6″

I wear these shorts a few times a week. They are what I reach for most in my rotation. If you know Lulu, you already know these are good.

I have these in the Formation Camo Deep Coal Multi color and a dark cheetah print (I think that print is sold out).

They have been restocking these all summer so if you don’t see your size, keep checking back.

I wear a 6 in lulu bottoms but I got my first pair in an 8 based on the reviews. I got a second pair in my normal 6. Both fit but the 8 is more of a comfortable fit and the 6 sucks everything in more.

90 Degree By Reflex
Lux Camo High Waisted Pocket Biker Shorts

I recently got these shorts from Nordstrom Rack on sale for under $20. They don’t have many sizes left in these exact shorts but I also would have bought these: 90 Degree Shorts

Infinite Potential Yoga Shorts

This is a local Orlando, black-owned business that you should support! I have these shorts in blue and neon yellow. 

I love the blue. The yellow is “around the house only” for me because they are kind of see-through. 

I have the blue in a medium and they are comfy fitting, not too tight. The yellow I have in a small and they are snug but still fit. 

Something I’m eyeing

THE GYM PEOPLE High Waist Yoga Shorts 

These are an Amazon find. They have side pockets and great reviews. I’ve had these in my cart for a few weeks but haven’t pulled the trigger yet.

Amazon Tank Tops

Amazon has some great affordable options for tank tops to pair with your sweatiest workout. These are a few of my favorites.

Lemedy Women Padded Sports Bra Tank Top 

This cropped tank is amazing. I wish I had more of them. It has a built-in bra with light padding and is so flattering. 

I recommend sizing up a size. I wear a medium and it fits perfectly. 

4 Pieces Basic Crop Tank Tops

I am all about having good basics to throw on with my shorts or leggings. This pack of 4 is a great deal.

Something I’m Eyeing

icyzone Workout Tank Tops

This pack of 3 tank tops come in an assortment of colors and have great reviews. 


I keep it pretty simple with my technology. I always have my Apple Watch for tracking and my wireless headphones.

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) 38mm Aluminum Case

Yes, I still have the Series 3 and I love it.

I HIGHLY recommend an Apple Watch to anyone that wants to be able to track their fitness journey and could use some extra motivation.

Personally, this has helped me stay consistent and on track with my goals. I also use it to track my steps in my weekly step competitions.

The Series 3 is on sale right now at Target for $175.99

JLab Audio Fit 2.0 Bluetooth Enabled Wireless Sports Earbuds

Personally, I don’t need anything fancy with my headphones. These have worked for me for the past few years. 

They are only $30, they’re wireless, and they wrap around your ear so they won’t fall out when you’re running. 

Other Stuff I’m Loving

Other products that have helped me with my workouts.

Versa Gripps

The description says “The Best Training Accessory in The World” 

I might agree. 

These will help take your grip strength out of your lifting so you can focus on working the muscle you are training. 

They have help me with pull ups, RDLs and barbell rows. 

HOEAAS Microfiber Sport Travel Towel Set

If you are braving the gym these days like I am you know you need a towel to enter. 

These towels are cute, absorbent and long enough to cover most of a bench or fitness machine seat.
