On the Cloudrock waterproof boot – $ 229
I wear a lot of sports shoes. In fact, it’s the only shoe I can wear to work. I found this company years ago and regularly train in their cloud trainer but when they pulled out a hiking shoe I got very excited! I always get compliments on this color and it’s a trail dream! –Tracy Anderson, CEO and Founder

APL Men’s Techloom Liner – $ 230
I’ve worn APL sneakers at the gym for years, and every pair still delivers performance and comfort. I find that if I feel good in what I’m wearing, I can really show up to my training. Plus, these sneakers add the perfect athletic touch to any post-class mirror selfie. —Steven Beltrani, President of Communications and Brand

LuluLemon Everyday 2.0 Backpack – $ 98
Who doesn’t love a good backpack? The “Everyday Backpack” basically contains all your
necessities in one place. An exterior pocket can hold up to a 16 inch laptop and the water bottle pocket gives you quick access to stay hydrated. Additional compartments throughout ensure you have more than enough space for your daily tasks. Moreover, it is quite fashionable. —Joseph Hidalgo, Head of Studio Operations

Wahoo Tickr Heart Rate Monitor — $ 50
While there aren’t any fancy features, this monitor is great because it syncs with all of your devices anyway (so you don’t really need all of those fancy features). It’s precise, comfortable, reliable. For those who already use an Apple Watch currently to monitor their heart rate, know that if you really want quality heart rate data, you need to wear a strap around your chest. —Megan Grocutt, Director of VIP Relations

Brother Vellies Cloud Sock — $ 35

When I tell you I’m not going anywhere without my Baggu bag, I mean I’m not going all over without my Baggu bag.

Bonus: you can easily wash it and hang it up to dry before using it again the next day. –Sierra Asplundh, Director of Social Media and Content Marketing

HidrateSpark Pro Stel Smart Water Bottle — From $ 64.99
One of my clients had this water bottle and I thought “what is this?” It’s a smart bottle that syncs with an app on your phone and tracks your daily water usage. If you haven’t had a sip in a while, you’ll receive an alert and the water bottle will glow until you do. What a fun and cool way to make sure you stay hydrated. —Joseph Hidalgo
