When your schedule is frequently packed with work, family and social obligations, fitness and healthy eating habits can be tough to maintain and they often fall to the wayside.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. These days, there are plenty of items you can carry with you through your hectic day to ensure you’re getting what you need to meet your fitness goals, and getting the most you can out of your workouts  regardless of when and how you’re fitting them in.

1. Protein bars

If you need to fuel up on your way to a workout, or start your recovery after, protein bars are easy to carry with you, and you can consume them on the go. Nothing is easier than a protein-packed snack that you can eat while you walk. GNC's Pro Performance oatment Protein Bar Deluxe is a delicious choice that provides protein to fuel muscle, protein and carbs for energy and a combination of fiber and protein which support satiety so you’re less likely to make an unhealthy choice, no matter how busy you are.

2. Multivitamins

A multivitamin is super easy to seamlessly fit into your routine (it takes approximately five seconds to take a pill, after all), and it’ll help you get the combination of basic vitamins and nutrients you need to support optimal health. Try a formula from the GNC Women's Mega or GNC Mega Men collections. There are several varieties of each to fit your individual needs, age and health goals.

3. Energy supplements

The busier you are, the more energy you need — especially if you combine a busy life with physical exercise and exertion. Keep some Zoom Energy chews on your person and pop one when you need an energy boost.

4. Creatine

When you’re fitting in exercise wherever you can, creatine can be a valuable supplemental tool. It helps your boost muscle energy, so you can get the most out of a workout even if you’re fitting it into a short period of time. And GNC Pro Performance Amplied Creatine 189 is more than just any creatine  it’s proven to get into your muscles and improve strength more efficiently than “normal” creatine.

5. Amino acids

Amino acids are an important component to recovery, so consider adding a supplement like GNC Genetix Metabolic BCAA to your post-workout ritual.

6. Omega 3 supplements

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, omega-3s are essential fatty acids that help support heart, brain, joint, eye and skin health.  The easiest way to get ample omega-3s is through a capsule like the GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil 1500.

7. Hydrating beverages

Hydration is always important, but even more so when you’re exercising regularly. You’ll want to drink plenty of water throughout the day, but after your workout, reload on electrolytes with a bottle of  AQUAhydrate. The electrolytes will help you hydrate without the added sugar and calories found in sports drinks. You can even mix it into your post-workout protein shake!
