It's time to do some spring cleaning, update our closets, and our gym bags with all of the hot essentials of the season. FitSugar's put together your long-awaited list of the top five favorite products from apparel to gadgets that you'll love. If you want a tote bag that can store all your yoga gear, including your mat and more, this is going to be your best friend. Trust me. This bag has special zippers and a secret tunnel for your yoga mat, or you can store your mat through the zipper pockets on the side, or stand it upright inside the bag. The water-resistant outer layer is durable and smooth, so it won't agitate your clothing. The front pockets provide quick access to phones, or whatever else you might need. And the drawstring cord helps to keep things in place. Nerd alert: the back zipper pocket actually fits a laptop, which makes transition from the office to the gym, seamless. This bag holds about 50 pounds. So, get ready to lug around just anything in this stylish and functional Louis [sp?] tote This shoe is a barefoot shoe made for training at the gym. The thin and flexible sole means you can actually feel the ground as you're lunging or jumping or working through agility and balance drills. You can wear the shoe with or without socks, and so it is lightweight too. So, it feels really great on your foot. Plus we love the color combos. The fuchsia and the reflective metallic adds a little bit of jazz your spring work out wardrobe. We've long been fans of the uber-eco friendly LifeFactory water bottles and this new bottle with the flip-cap means they are now even easier to use. This bottle is dishwasher friendly, so you can put juice in it or your electrolyte hydration tabs in the bottle and clean it up easily. I like to keep this with me throughout the day and the new flip-top makes for easy sipping while driving. The handle makes it easy to carry too. Run in style through all the elements. Spring running means working out in the rain and the wind and the Nike Cyclone Vapor jacket has you covered out there without all the added bulk. Let's bring out our Bella Sugar host, Kirbie who's wearing the jacket, so what do you think? I love it, it's really light-weight and comfortable and I think it's cute, too. Yeah, I think it's really cute, and I actually love it as well. The jacket is light-weight and it's designed for motion. The polka dots are both cute and functional. They keep the jacket from sticking to your skin as you build up sweat on your rainy and windy run. And they help the jacket breathe too. The hood keeps you protected without limiting your visibility and you can stash your essentials in your pocket or stash the jacket in your pocket when you're not wearing it. Black capri tights are the little black dress of the fitness world. These compression capris by Under Armor offer a super snug fit to help your muscles deliver, too. The fabric is wicking and the behind the knees slashes add some flair and breathability. We also love the thicker waistband, it's comfortable. So, no digging. What do you think. I love them. They're really soft. Yeah, they're really comfortable. These caprice] run a bit large. So, if you're between sizes, go for the smaller one. So, those are our 5 favorites.
