What's in Your Gym Bag? Choosing the Best Water Bottle

Staying hydrated during your workout is a key factor for your energy and performance. So don’t workout empty-handed. That being said, here are some tips for selecting the best water bottle.

  • Glass water bottles are safe and more environmentally friendly. However, glass is more prone to break and many fitness facilities do not allow glass.
  • Plastic water bottles provide a shatterproof option, but be sure to select a bottle that doesn’t contain the harmful chemical bisphenol A. These products are marked with a BPA Free label, normally at the bottom.
  • Stainless steel water bottles are safe, chemical free and a great option for keeping your water cool. If you are working out in hot temperatures, brands such a Yeti and Ozark Trail are known for keeping liquids cool for upwards of 4 hours.
