Working out is way more fun with new stuff.

Pretty much everything in life is more fun with new stuff, but when it comes to something like making time to sweat, having shiny new toys makes it way easier to hit the gym.

With cooler temps upon us, most of the gym rats in the Stateline will be headed indoors this month and that means you might need to find new motivators. How about a revamp on your gym swag?

Here is your list of 5 things Rockford gym rats need this fall:

Amazon

New Kicks: Might I suggest Brooks Women's Ghost 12. To be completely honest, I don't know what the numbers mean, but if you have shin splints like me, Brooks are the way to go. Also they come in fun colors.

Amazon

Killer Headphones: Letscom Wireless Headphones, Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds. Who wants to go to the gym and listen to the guy next to you breathe? Not me. I prefer to blast whatever music fits my mood and get to it.

Amazon

Smart Heart Rate Monitor: IGPSPORT Heart Rate Monitor Armband Optical HR60 Sensor with ANT+ and Bluetooth. It's easier to push yourself when you can measure what you're up to.

Amazon

Rockford Workout Gear. Rockford Peaches Baseball Funny Retro  Who knew Amazon sold Rockford tanks? This is a dude's tank top, so keep that in mind when sizing.

Amazon

The Best Socks on Earth. Balega Hidden Comfort No-Show Running Socks. These are my favorite socks ever. Sure they're $13 but once you try them you won't be able to run in anything else.
