From post-workout fuel to healthy treats, having a go-to snack bar is essential – and these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars are going to be my go-to all year long. Made with just six clean ingredients (peanut butter, honey, egg white protein, dairy-free chocolate chips, gluten-free oats, and dates), these decadent bars from KiZE will satisfy your sweet tooth while helping to provide your body with the energy it needs to crush a workout, hit the trails, or rest and replenish. I also love that KiZE, the company behind these bars, doesn’t just make healthy snacks but also works to make the world a better place by feeding the hungry, serving the homeless, providing resources to Haiti, and supporting at-risk youth.

Give your coffee a protein-packed upgrade in 2024 with Dutch Bros’ protein coffee. Available until February 29, this dynamic duo will help you get your caffeine and protein fix at the same time. With featured drinks like the Salted Caramel Protein Latte and Salted Caramel Protein Mocha, you can sip to your heart’s content knowing you’re also fueling your body with more than 20 grams of protein per drink. Seriously, what more could you ask for?
2024 is the year of prioritizing recovery. Gone are the days of hitting the gym, destroying your muscles, and then failing to give your body the proper rest and recovery. This year, prioritize your body post-workout with this Infrared Sauna Blanket from HigherDOSE. The sauna blanket is designed to help you sweat out impurities, burn calories, boost your mood, and increase blood flow and circulation. It’s essentially all of the benefits of a workout, without the workout. I use mine nightly, and it’s my hands-down favorite wellness product.
With more and more of us spending our days in front of screens, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that blue light, the light emitted from things like computers, televisions, and our phones, is not so great for our health. To make sure you’re keeping every part of your body in tip-top shape this year, we’re loving these light therapy lenses from Ra Optics. Designed to block blue light, these tinted lenses are available in both Daylight Lenses and Sunset Lenses to help prevent eye strain, save your vision during the day, and help you unwind and sleep better at night.
Give your body everything it needs for peak performance with these science-backed electrolytes. Made with “everything you need and nothing you don’t,” we love that this formula avoids questionable ingredients while still packing a fruity, sweet flavor. Other flavor options include Orange Salt, Mango Chili, Citrus Salt, and a handful of others to satisfy every palate.
Remember what we said about 2024 being the year of recovery? That trend continues with The Mini 3.0, a red light device designed to reduce pain, relax muscles and joints, and increase blood flow. Joovv’s high-tech device is backed by science and proven to “heal and optimize healthy cellular function.” To reap the benefits, all you have to do is spend approximately 10 minutes in front of the device each day.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to dodgy ingredients and fillers in your supplements this year, allow me to introduce you to Naked Grass Fed Whey. This incredibly simple protein powder contains just one ingredient: whey protein concentrate. While Naked does offer flavored blends like Vanilla, Strawberry, and Chocolate, even those contain just three ingredients: whey, organic coconut sugar, and an organic natural flavor. It’s a clean, light flavor that's not chalky and mixes well with just about anything.
Fitness trackers aren’t going anywhere in 2024. In fact, they just keep getting better and better. This one from Whoop is both sleek and functional, and it doesn’t just track users’ data points but also gives custom-to-you recommendations on how you can improve your health. From telling you “whether cold showers or a vegan diet give you a boost,” Whoop’s wearable can help you scientifically sort through which fitness trends will actually make a difference for your health this year.
Upgrade your shaker bottle with this premium kitchen-grade stainless steel bottle from Ice Shaker. If you hate drinking clumpy, poorly mixed protein shakes or pre-workout, this bottle is essential to add to your gym bag in 2024. With its patented noise-free agitator, Ice Shaker blends your powdery drinks perfectly every time. But the real reason this blender bottle deserves a gold star is that it won’t absorb odors, stains, or flavors, so you don’t have to worry about chugging your protein shake while also getting the flavor of yesterday’s.
2020 might’ve been the year of the home gym, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped loving at-home workouts four years later. If you’re still a fan of crushing your lifts at home, you’re going to love Tonal, an all-in-one home gym that’s designed to help you do it all. Powered by AI, Tonal helps create personalized workouts just for you and expertly tracks your progress. While it does come with a fairly hefty price tag, if you’re looking to ditch your monthly gym membership, you’ll likely come out about even, and you’ll end up with essentially your own high-tech personal trainer.
