Pretty Cup Love, You’re the One I Lean On

Sometimes a fitness hack is so dang simple it just makes sense! We know it’s a struggle to get the recommended amount of water in a day, with suggestions ranging from 64 oz to 2.7 liters and everything in between. So how can we guarantee that we’re getting enough water?

According to TikTok user @vpopitdontstop, you need to get yourself a pretty cup! With a fancy cup that makes you feel like a bad b*tch, you’ll be more inclined to be sipping on water all day long and make sure that your body is well hydrated.

Getting enough H20 on a daily basis is so important.

  • It keeps your joints lubricated

  • Helps you sleep better

  • Keeps your brain functioning properly

  • Improves your mood

  • Regulates body temperature

Snag yourself a fun, badass, helpful, or funky cup and keep that agua flowing!

We Like It Thick

Not all smoothies are created equal. Some smoothies just reign supreme. But how can we take our smoothies to the next level? TikTok user @kizedwards_ has let the secret out of the bag! The key is frozen bananas!

For this fitness hack, all you have to do is chop up your bananas when they’re ripe, throw them in a plastic bag or container, and pop them in the freezer. It’s that easy! Not only do frozen bananas give your smoothies the perfect, creamy consistency, but you can also use them for nicecream (a healthy, vegan alternative to ice cream) or smoothie bowls!

For the perfect healthy breakfast, throw your frozen nanners into the blender with some of our favorite superfoods! We love a blend of banana and acai topped with cacao nibs, chia, and hemp seeds. *Chef’s Kiss*

Keeping That Mane Under Control

Have you ever talked yourself out of a workout just because you don’t want to wash your hair? No? Just us? Well, that excuse is going out the window with this gym hack on how to handle your sweaty hair during intense workouts.

Low ponytails, dry shampoo, and a blow dryer are the key here! @gabiburgfit breaks it down for us. She says that dry shampoo will be your best friend throughout the week. Using dry shampoo both before and after your workout will help you soak up all the sweat. We love classic Batiste or Moroccan Oil which comes in options for both dark and light tones.

One for the Kiddos

We know what it can be like as a parent. Your kids want to do everything that their parents do! Do your kids ever try to ask if they can join you when you hop on your bike and hit one of our virtual spin classes? Well with this at-home workout hack, now they can.

Tiktok user @crazysiblings shows us how simple it is to turn a regular kid’s bike with training wheels into a stationary bike for tiny humans! All you have to do is prop up their training wheels on a few books, and they’re good to go.

Let us be the first to warn you though, kids have energizer bunny energy! There’s a good chance they’ll barely crack a sweat and have you wondering why you’re exhausted and they’re ready for round two.
