Treat yourself to a new gym water bottle and improve your hydration while you get fit. Hydration is vital during exercise and having a great gym bottle will encourage you to keep those fluid levels topped up while making sure you’re not sending unnecessary plastic bottles to landfill.
Choosing the Best Water Bottle
When it comes to healthy hydration we think reusable stainless steel, glass or silicone bottles are your best option. Stay hydrated with a leak-proof double wall gym bottle. Choose a BPA free sports cap or bottle with straw lid if that's more your preference. And make sure your drinks, water or otherwise, stay tasting fresh.
Plastic bottles can contain all sorts of toxic chemicals including BPA and Phthalates. BPA has been shown to cause hormone imbalance and phthalates have been linked to lower testosterone and male infertility, so why take the risk. Plus plastic can leave your water tasting funny which is the last thing you want halfway through a tough workout.
High-quality stainless steel gym bottles are ideal as the electropolished interiors leave no-where for germs to hide and they don't absorb or pass on any flavour. Meaning your water stays fresh tasting even if you forget to take it out of your gym bag. And the BPA-free plastic lids easily turn your drink bottle into a sports bottle when you need it.
Beyond that, it comes down to personal preference. Do you want a sports or flip top bottle for easy drinking? Or are you more concerned with ensuring your water stays ice cold to the last sip however long you stay at the gym?
Isotonic drinks are popular with athletes as they give a sugar boost and replace the salts you lose as you sweat. Instead of buying expensive drinks in plastic bottles though you could make your own and take it with you in your stylish new gym bottle. There are lots of recipes available online but essentially you just need to add a pinch of salt to a sugary squash or watered down fruit juice.
Protein shakes are also popular to help your body build muscle after a session at the Gym. Choosing a wide mouth gym bottle allows you to make your shake in a great looking bottle rather than a plastic shaker. And if you choose an insulated bottle it will stay nice and cold until you need it.
Here are some of our favourite water bottles that make great gym bottles but are also fantastic water bottles to help you stay hydrated throughout the day.
FOSH Active Gym Water Bottle
The fabulous FOSH Active bottle is perfect for the gym. The 750ml capacity is big enough to require minimal refills. The design is sleek and stylish, the colours are vibrant and the handy d-ring means you can easily clip it to your gym bag if required.
We also love the fact that this gym bottle has the option of a flip lid or the Klean Kanten sports cap. Perfect for one-handed operation while you're in the gym.
Klean Kanteen Water Bottles
The great thing about Klean Kanteen is that they have been designed with both durability and versatility in mind. Any of the classic bottles will fit any of the classic caps. Meaning you can have a leak proof insulated bottle that you can throw in your bag all day and then simply switch the lid to turn it into the perfect gym bottle.
One bottle for coffee and water? Now that's what we like.
Chilly's Water Bottles
Chilly's super stylish bottles have become extremely popular and are perfect for the gym, the office, or just making sure you have ice cold water to drink if you wake up in the night.
The double wall insulation will keep drinks HOT for 12 hours and COLD for 24 hours and the three sizes mean there's a gym bottle for every workout. Although there isn't a sports cap that fits these bottles the small-mouth does make spillages less likely when you are on the move.
