Don’t have access to a gym or think you don’t have time to workout? I’ve created a guide with everything you’ll need to get a good sweat sesh in. Whether you’re on your kitchen floor waiting to take food out of the oven, in the backyard or in a hotel, I believe that you can do it! 

First, find an outfit you feel confident in. 

When you’re confident, you perform much better. I’ve found that when I buy a new workout outfit, I’m actually motivated to take my barre class. Depending on if you’re inside or outside and what type of workout you have planned, you may want either shorts or a pair of leggings. If you’re looking for some shorts that stay in place and feel like butter, go for these. If you’re looking for a great pair of leggings that can make it through any workout, these are a great choice! No more pulling my leggings up as I workout, thanks to these! 

Looking for a top that goes with everything? I love the neckline of this one! Plus, it's great for a variety of activities. 

Invest in shoes!

When it comes to shoes, I always find the most supportive platform I can. Doing so helps posture and form which in turn lowers your chances of injury. My favorite right now are these Asics. They’re so supportive and they make me feel really boosted. 

Plan your space

It’s hard to feel motivated when you don’t have a foundation to work out on. The kitchen floor or concrete driveway doesn’t sound very tempting to me, either. Grab a yoga mat that you love and get going!

Find a clean protein source

Make sure you’re providing your body with the fuel it needs to perform! I add one scoop of this protein powder to my morning smoothie. Not only does it offer joint, skin, and gut support, but it also packs in 20g of clean protein into one scoop.  

Vegan or vegetarian? Opt for this plant-based alternative. This is one of the only protein powders that is PROP 65 certified. Meaning it has been tested for heavy metals and impurities (and passed!) I combine it with some almond milk, almond butter, a good green powder and any frozen fruit I have on hand!

Don’t forget to wash your face!

Breaking out and don’t know why? Make sure you’re at least wiping down your face after your workouts! Even if you’re not dripping in sweat, buildup still forms after a movement session! Here are my favorite non-toxic face wipes that I can use wherever I am!

Throw it all in a bag!

I can’t stress how important it is to stay organized for success! Pack a bag, set it next to the door and grab it on the way to your car! This is a miracle worker for those that want the extra 5 minutes of sleep. My favorite duffle can be found here. It sits in my backseat and is super comfortable to carry around. Here’s a peek into what’s in mine: a non-toxic deodorant (I love native), the wipes I mentioned above, a dress to change into if I have a meeting afterward, hair-ties, and my favorite water bottle. 

So, how are you moving this week? If you try out any of my tips, make sure to tag me on Instagram @nellamoon!
