Okay, ladies, we all know “wellness” isn’t just about barre-lates-crank-core-blast-regimen-detox. Wellness can include binge-watching West World while you knit a shawl or bake a fabulous, tomato cheddar pie. Wellness can even be as simple as showering regularly or getting the mail from the mailbox. Wellness is also going for a long run, cranking strong female vocalists, and generating so many endorphins your soul briefly leaves your body and flies to heaven. Regardless of flying logistics, we at SCOUT HQ want to give you a vehicle that transports your wellness tools wherever life takes you. So, sit back in child’s pose, crack open an ice cold kombucha, and inhale SCOUT’s latest What’s in the Bag: the Fit Kit (you're welcome for the sneak peak of Fall 2018 patterns).

“The Fit Kit is like a clown car, it’s crazy how much you can fit inside.”
I picked these up from one of my favorite local businesses, Core 72. They’re perfect for long runs in the sun.
I always carry RX Bars as healthy and filling pre or post workout snack. For long workouts, I have Campfire S’mores GU and add Nuun tablets to my water.
Music is a must when I'm swimming laps. I have to thank Apple for this gamechanger.
You've got to break out the massage roller for post-workout recovery. The cooling mint and chamomile massage oil is a superb addition to my routine.

“I may fall for the next big fitness craze, but my Fit Kit has remained constant as my go-to workout bag.”
These wipes are great for cleaning up post workout. Unlike other face wipes I’ve tried, these are super gentle and don’t burn my skin.
I love going to spin classes and recently purchased my own Tiem spin shoes, so I don’t have to pay to rent shoes every time. They’re so comfortable, and I love that they look more like regular sneakers than indoor cycling shoes. They also make working out so much more convenient. If I can’t make it to a class, I just clip them into a bike at my gym and stream a Peloton class.
I have thick hair and have often experienced the unfortunate moment right before a workout class where I try to put my hair back, and the hair tie breaks. I started using Teleties, and they have never broken on me. The rubber material grips my hair without pulling it out and keeps my ponytail from slipping, even during long runs.

“I like to carry multiple bags and I like that the fit kit can hold everything I need for work and everything I need to go straight to a workout or practice”
Lacrosse stick, balls, whistle, cones
I always have my coaching stuff with me during the week. I’m working with younger kids, so my whistle and cones, for drills, are most necessary.
You have to have water and snacks. I’ve been packing these granola bars from Trader Joe’s. They’re easy to grab on my way out the door and appear to be healthy, but who knows...
I always carry both my Metro card and Capital Bikeshare fob, because I never know which mode of transportation I’m going to take. You’ve got to have plenty of options in this city.
Just so we’re clear, this isn’t some stressful “Summer Bod” reminder veiled in a workout bag advertisement. I would never do that to y’all. *Gingerly steps on soapbox and clears throat* Because, wellness doesn’t need to be squeezed into a specific season or swimsuit. Wellness is a journey with highs and lows, and we would be honored to play a part in yours. If you’d like a Fit Kit of your own, check out new mobile (ohm)s through this link.
