Some may turn up their noses in disgust after this post but I think the three products below are essential products for any (read: EVERY) fitness enthusiasts. Men, I know society makes you believe women are supposed to smell like beautiful flowers everyday but that's not the case, especially not after a crazy workout. Yes, that hot woman with the killer bod was sweating her butt off this morning to maintain her sick abs.
The truth is that sometimes you have errands to run and other things to do before you can get home and take a shower. The three products below are made to help you maintain a clean look before you make it home:
