Half of the year has almost passed—how was January's #BalikAlindog plan going? Are you still at it? Whether you're still on beast mode or you need to bounce back, you will always need essentials to help your journey to a fit bod easier and more successful. Also, when you're powered by strong willpower and excellent fitness arsenals, it's much more motivating to reach your goal! Scroll down to see our list.

1. Cool sportswear
Sweat it out in style with fashionable fitness clothing that will help your skin breathe and won't constrict body movement.

Try: Uniqlo Sports, at SM Megamall, SM Makati, SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, SM Southmall, and Power Plant Mall.

2. Reliable footwear
To ensure your feet have steady support, a well-made sneaker is a must-have. It's also a big bonus if your kicks are extra light, so you can stride with ease and speed.

Try: Saucony Originals Chicago Dog, P3,599, at Complex Lifestyle Store, Glorietta 3 UP Town Center Trinoma, Shoe Salon, and SneakPeek.

3. A hardworking anti-perspirant
Sweat stains are never pretty, and bad odor is a big no-no. Keep your underarms dry and fresh with an anti-perspirant that also works on the most common underarm issues: darkness, bumps, and itching.

Try: VMV Hypoallergenics Essence Skin-Saving Antiperspirant, P450, at SM Megamall and Alabang Town Center.

4. A state-of-the-art water bottle
Nothing beats the feel of cold water quenching your thirst after busting a move. This bottle is so cleverly made—it allows cold water to stay cold for 12 hours without the need for refigeration! And if you're wondering, hot liquids stay warm. too!

Try: S'Well Bottle, at Rustan's branches.

5. A guilt-free meal
After torching calories, it's important to refuel the body with food that is good for you. Salads filled with protein and healthful dressings are your best bet. These aren't too heavy on the stomach, but will surely make you feel recharged.

Try: Salad Stop! Iron Wo-Man Salad, at Burgos Circle
