As a certified personal trainer at Equinox, Andrea Somer knows what a good workout looks like. Her favorite type of exercise? “I love my lower body workouts,” she tells Lively. “Some of my favorite exercises are hip thrusts, deadlifts and squats in different variations.” On top of that, Somer is a fan of anything that gets her heart rate up – and yes, that includes high-intensity workouts. “Also trying new things that really challenges me is the best feeling,” she adds.
How does the fitness influencer prep for those sweat sessions? By packing her workout essentials, of course. Take a peek inside her gym bag below.
Mobot Foam Roller and Water Bottle. Perfect 2-in-1. Hydrate, roll, recover.
Batiste Dry Shampoo. Life saver after the sweaty workouts when you just don’t have time to wash your hair.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Of course. I put them in my smoothies or coffee. They’re perfect on the go!
Valjean Labs Glow Facial Spray. Obsessed with this refreshing vitamin C and magnesium spray.
Urbanista Wireless Headphones. What would we do without music?
Theragun. This helps with recovery and sore muscles. I use it before and after a session.
Mini Band. I use this to activate my muscles before hitting the weights. Perfect for outdoor workouts and to bring on trips.
