We caught up with local fitness influencer and soon-to-be mother of two, Sheina Fernandes, to see how she is staying fit in the new year! Knowing the most common New Year’s resolutions are related to health, we asked Sheina to shop for some must-have items to help you reach your fitness goals this year. Keep reading to find out Sheina’s Top Fitness Picks and where to find them at Legends Outlets.
1 & 2: Cropped Sweatshirt and Leggings, Puma Outlet
Every great workout starts with a cute outfit! Sheina likes to start her fitness routine by warming up in a comfortable sweatshirt, like this edgy camouflage one from Puma Outlet! She paired it with these modern shiny leggings that feature dryCELL technology to help combat sweat and keep you dry throughout your workout.
3: Wireless Headphones, BAM!
During warmer weather, Sheina prefers to go for long walks or runs outside! She’s tested many different kinds of headphones and recommends this wireless, over-the-ear option from Books-A-Million. While earbuds tend to fall out during a sweaty cardio session, these are guaranteed to stay on throughout your workout.
4: The Bloated Belly Book, BAM!
Before a workout session, Sheina likes to fuel up with something healthy and nutritious, like her favorite breakfast meal or daytime snack: Avocado Toast! She doesn’t cut carbs or deprive herself of foods she truly enjoys eating, but she does cook most of her meals at home using fresh, seasonal ingredients. For those who need a little help in the kitchen, Sheina recommends shopping for a fun new cookbook with healthy recipes, cooking tips and tricks, like this one from Books-A-Million.
5: Glute Band, T.J. Maxx
Sheina’s favorite piece of home workout equipment is her glute band because it is sooooooo versatile and can be used for tons of different exercises (think leg raises, squats, pelvic thrusts, and more)! Staying fit is especially important during pregnancy, and the glute band allows Sheina to get a killer burn while keeping her workout low impact and safe. Added bonus: Glute bands are inexpensive, small, easy-to-store, and perfect for travel!
6: Stability Ball, T.J. Maxx
A stability ball, like this one from T.J. Maxx, is another staple in Sheina’s home gym. She uses it every single day and said it’s extremely effective for core conditioning, as well as improving balance and flexibility. It’s also great for lower back exercises – with a growing baby bump it’s important to keep the back strong, which is just another way Sheina incorporates the stability ball into her fitness routine!
7: Sneakers, Adidas
For Sheina, comfort and style are two of the most important things in a shoe. She was drawn to this pair from Adidas for its gold and pink accents, and the killer price was an added bonus! Sheina likes to shop smart and save money when buying new athletic shoes, making Legends Outlets the perfect place to score a new pair.
8: Sports Bra, Victoria’s Secret
Whether you’re walking, lifting weights, or doing yoga, investing in a high-quality sports bra can improve your overall workout experience. Sheina recommends a comfortable and supportive bra, especially during pregnancy (the more support the better). This durable (and adorable) option from Victoria’s Secret provides compression, bounce control and maximum support. Plus, the front zipper makes this bra nursing friendly.
