I've worked as an editor for,, and My writer bylines can be found on, Verywell Fit, Insider Inc., MindBodyGreen, and Everyday Health. I'm a fitness fanatic who's been practicing yoga for 15 years. I'm getting ready to compete in my first strongwoman competition, so I know all about the best weightlifting gear (I couldn't deadlift without my straps!), leggings that don't slip down when I squat, and which gym bag holds the most.

Favorite Purchase: Cobra Grips

I can get them on my wrists super quickly, which is important when trying to time out rests and sets. Regular straps confused me, as it wasn't always clear which end was up or down! Cobra grips are easy to get situated and in position on the bar too. I always had to fiddle with and adjust my classic straps, which took time and attention.
