Behind the scenes, we have been putting together an EXTENSIVE library of resources pertaining mostly to movement, mobility, nutrition, and lifestyle changes.  As I glanced over the crowd congregating at the gym the other day, I remarked to myself how “stylish” we crossfitters have become!  The amount of gear and apparel that now defines our culture has boomed over the last few years.  Back in the day I didn’t even need a gym bag since all I brought with me was a water bottle and maybe a towel.  Now I have 2 pairs of shoes, 3 jump ropes, compression sleeves, knee braces, wrist straps and a head band (for style mostly).  I also have drawers dedicated to lulu pants and a collection of colorful and “fun” knee high socks that even my 9 year old niece wouldn’t be caught dead in.  So I wanna know, what do you love/must have while working out?  Any links on where to find would be much appreciated too.  

My top 3 are:
Lululemon pants.  Best. Ever.  They just are.
TK knee sleeves.  I found these on Amazon.  I never needed these before fairly recently.  Getting old sucks.
Inov-8 shoes.  I got mine on Zappos, but there are some local retailers that carry these too.  Of all the minimalist shoes, these fit me the best and they have great colors.
