Hydration is one key element to health and fitness. The properly hydrated means energy level is up, and mental clarity is boosted. So, carrying a water bottle makes you more inclined to sip frequently. During the workout, the body loses a lot of fluids through sweating, which leads you to dehydration. So, drinking 8-10 ounce of water every 15 minutes is necessary to be hydrated.

4) Towels

The towel is found to be useful to wipe sweat. The material of the towel is most valued. So, light-weighted, and compact towel is best suited for the gym as they have great moisture management abilities.
The towel should be portable, quick-drying and odour resistant. Micro-fibre towels are preferable as they are generally thinner than cotton and soak up a surprising amount of liquid due to there finally woven construction. They also dry quickly and are less prone to mildew and mound.
