Rehydrate Drink Mix by Advocare
Take your electrolytes on the go in stick packs or a quick scoop from the canister to get in the energy you need before, during, or after a workout.
Great flavors like Red Raspberry and Melon (Coach’s favorites!) with 70% less sugar than the standard sports drinks!
Meal Replacement Shakes by Advocare
Coach’s go-to shake for a busy morning or easy mid-day meal…but she’s also been known to power charge a smoothie with a Vanilla MRS or make a scrumptious treat with a Chocolate MRS heated into tasty ‘hot chocolate’.Purchase >
Spark by Advocare
When I need some focus or energy (or both!) Spark lights a fire and gets me going. Whether it’s a slow moving morning, a project that needs total attention, or a workout that needs a kick start Spark is great!
While I haven’t met a flavor that I didn’t like Blue Raspberry and Grape are my current favorites!
Meal Nutrition Bar by Advocare
While Advocare offers a variety of fantastic snack and meal bars, this Peanut Butter/Chocolate Bar is ALWAYS in stock in my home pantry and often in my book bag. It’s both filling and tasty when errands run long or I’ve got a long day but not much time to eat!Purchase >
Mini Resistance Bands Pack by Perform Better
Though they may be appear mini, they are enormous when it comes to exercise potential. Whether working on Monster Walks or Inchworms, adding Mini Resistance Bands are a great way to increase joint stability and muscle activation.Purchase >
First Place SuperBands by Perform Better
Superbands are a great addition to any home gym or gym bag as they can be used for stretching, strengthening, power development, agility…the potential exercise list is endless!
I recommend having a mix; 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″ are the ones I have a ton of…and a few 2 1/2″ for fun (lol).
PB Extreme Soft Toss Mini Medicine Ball by Perform Better
The Mini Medicine Balls are the small cousins to the standard large medicine balls which are great for smaller people, storing, and transportation. Since they are soft they are easy to catch, but still get a good bounce if slammed on the floor or wall.
I recommend having a mix depending on the size and strength of the person using them. I have 4-16# that I use for a variety of exercises.
Court Slidz by Skilz at Perform Better
The day I saw someone sliding on rubber flooring I KNEW what my next equipment purchase was going to be as this was the first one I had seen that would slide on gym flooring. Whether you are working on your core or cardio, these little sliders are a great addition to your gym bag!Purchase >
Neoprene Hex Dumbbells by Perform Better
Available 1-15lbs. Neoprene coating improves grip, even when sweaty (!), and the hex shape allows for stability when doing fun exercises like Renegade Rows or when a modification is necessary for wrist issues.Purchase >
Traditional Foam Roller by Perform Better
Whether activating muscles prior to a workout or helping them recover after one foam rollers are often called ‘the poor man’s massage’. Not as relaxing as a Swedish massage, but a more comfortable recovery strategy than a cold tub! (well, in my opinion…BRRR!)Purchase >
