If you’re a frequent reader of HHG, than you know fitness is a huge part of my life. Ever since setting health goals and making the choice to get myself in shape (about 6 years ago), exercise has become somewhat of a habit and is very much a priority for me. Whether I’m training for a marathon, just going on a daily jog, lifting weights or attending a Body Pump class; my gym bag is pretty essential. Most days I hit the gym after work, so it’s necessary to freshen up- yes, I freshen up for the gym, and change into my workout attire. Walgreens is the perfect place to stock up on all of my gym bag must-haves!

Not only is Walgreens a great place to load up on items that keep me active, they’ve also got the #BalanceRewards program to help keep me healthy and save money. Win-win!

Have you heard about the #BalanceRewards program at Walgreens or have you used the Walgreens app? Thanks to the #CollectiveBias campaign, I became aware of this very helpful app.

Balance Rewards app

The Balance Rewards program allows you to earn points based on purchasing featured items and healthy choices. The Walgreens app keeps track of your points and goals. Walgreens even rewards you for some of your trackable activities; like fitness, weight and more. The Walgreens app can also be linked to your favorite fitness device (Fitbit or Jawbone) or fitness app (MyFitnessPal or RunKeeper)… plus more device and app options available.

Activity, so far.
Walgreens App

I browsed Walgreens, looking for goodies to fill my gym bag. I found everything I needed and some pretty great prices on those products too.

Shopping at Walgreens

I purchased shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I usually don’t shower at the gym, but in a pinch sometimes it’s necessary and I’ll be ready. I keep a stash of Ibuprofen in my bag for obvious reasons and the wet wipes come in handy too. The almonds are for after my workout, when I can’t get straight home to eat.
