Getting fit is never easy, but I suppose it was never meant to be! It shouldn’t be daunting though, as long as you’re motivated and ready to improve yourself, you should have great fun. Remember though, start slowly and don’t take on more than you can handle to begin with. You’re going to need the right equipment before you start to get in shape though. There are a few basic things that no one should be without when undertaking a new fitness regime. And there are also the extra things than make exercising and getting fit a little bit easier. Here’s what I think you should have before you start to feel the burn.

A Water Bottle

Hydration is vital for anyone undertaking a new fitness regime. You can’t get fit safely without a steady flow of water going into your body. You lose a lot of fluid through sweat when you exercise, so if you’re not rehydrating, you’ll be heading for disaster. A cheap water bottle is easy enough to find, and you’ll put it to good use!

A Pedometer

If you’re trying to improve your fitness by walking more or jogging, a pedometer is a great tool to use. They let you know how many steps you’ve taken so far that day. If you get a good quality one, they’ll also tell you how many calories you’ve burnt too. Seeing an exact figure can sometimes help spur you on when times get tough.


The great thing about sweatbands is that they’re now functional and stylish! You can look great as well as stop you getting too sweaty. If you are looking to get some sweatbands, get some interesting ones with unique patterns. There are lots of different options out there for you to explore. Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 11.19.26

Correct Footwear

Different sports and forms of exercise require different kinds of footwear, so make sure you buy the right pair for you. You don’t need to splash out on the top of the range shoes though; there are lots of brands and retailers than produce cheaper products that are good for beginners. Some simple running shoes will do for most forms of exercise you do if you don’t want to buy multiple pairs.

Some Weights

Weight lifting alone isn’t a good idea for weight loss, but it can help you get your body in better shape. Burning fat should always be your priority, but building muscle is definitely something you should think about too. Weights can be bought pretty cheaply online, start with the smaller ones first though.

A Gym Membership

Using your natural environment to start off your weight loss regime is all well and good, but before long, you’ll be wanting to push yourself a bit harder. When you get to that point, getting a gym membership is a good idea. There are some things you need more than others. It just depends on what kind of exercise you’re going to be undertaking. This list should help you get the basics right though!
