Hydration is sOoOo important, especially for those of us who love to sweat ; ) It’s much better to use reusable bottles [hello, sustainability + *free* water!], but there are so many shapes + sizes that it makes it difficult to pick which one matches your preference.
Most people have two go-to water bottles — one for sweating + one for living [at the office, in class, or traveling]. Each has their pros + cons, but check out some of the best water bottles to hydrate yoself —
While Blender Bottles are specifically for blending, whether it is protein powder, pre-workout, or fruit flavoring, these bottles are also great for chugging! The large mouth piece makes it easy to down some refreshing water in the middle of reps. These bottles come in a million colors + a variety of sizes + styles so you get the bottle that works best for you. Other than being able to throw it in your bag without spilling, the loop makes it easy to carry, or you could even clip your keys onto it.
Gatorade Squeeze Bottle
If you were an athlete growing up, you’re familiar with the perfect *squeeze* of a Gatorade bottle. These bottles make it super easy to chug with your sistas + not worry about spreading germs since all you have to do is point + squeeze. These hold plenty of water for maximum hydration + are a quick option for high intensity workouts.
CamelBak Handheld Bottle
Running + hydrating simultaneously is nearly impossible — unless you have the right kind of bottle! This CamelBak is light + easy to carry, but still holds enough water to endure a long run. There is also a pouch that can hold your keys, ID, phone + even some energy gels. Its reflective features make it that much more reliable.
S’well bottles are the best — mostly because you can get a bolt on the side. They are real beauts + keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours or your drinks hot for 12 hours….! Sustainability + good looks? Can’t beat that ; )
Tervis tumblers give you the opportunity to *customize* your hydration. You can choose between straws, travel lids, or flip-top lids, + each variety of cup is available in multiple color, shapes, + design. These are ideal for keeping at your desk or office — when you’re sipping out of a straw during class or a meeting, you may not even realize how much water you drank. Holla!
These bottles are probably the cutest on the market with inspirational quotes on one side [like *Never Ever Give Up!* + *Choose To Be Happy*] + timers on the other side. This way, you make sure you’re drinking enough water evenly throughout the day + crushing your goals. Available in multiple shapes, colors, + quotes, these bottles are great for the girl who needs a liiiitle extra motivation to hydrate.
