Shop Story

Ashley Mills is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of obé Fitness, a premium at-home fitness experience that offers live, immersive workouts through a digital platform and app.


She’s also mom to 3-year-old Donovan and 2-month-old Rowen, so she knows just how hard it can be to fit in working out as a parent. But that’s why she created obé! With more than 14 live classes per day and a library of 2,500+ workouts, obé’s signature 28-minute complete-body workouts make fitness accessible, affordable, efficient, varied and fun. They include Strength, Sculpt, Circuit, Dance, HIIT, Dance-HIIT, Pilates, Yoga, trampoline, meditation, prenatal and postnatal.


Here are her picks for the best fitness picks for mom:

Yoga Mat


I prefer a thick yoga mat (1/4 inch) for at-home workouts. The extra cushion allows me to use my mat for every class type and provides extra cushion for burpees during HIIT classes. It also deadens the sound for my downstairs neighbors.

obé Fitness Accesories


Invest in a few fitness accessories so you can level up your workout wherever you are. My go-tos are resistance loops, hand weights, a barre ball, sliders and ankle weights.

Body Brush


Bounce classes are not only great for cardio but also for lymphatic drainage. If you don't have a rebounder (fitness trampoline), try dry brushing!

Protein Shakes


Between working out and getting the kids ready, mornings at my house are insane. Owyn Vegan Plant Based Shakes are my go-to for breakfast on-the-go, and if I can swing a casual look for the day, I'll throw on a cute wind breaker over my athleisure.

New Wash


It can feel tempting to wash your hair after every workout. New Hair is perfect for getting the feeling of freshly washed hair without stripping that beautiful mane!

Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex


My face gets dry from intense workouts, and I swear by Tata Harper's Replenishing Nutrient Complex to give my skin the oil it needs to stay hydrated.

Watch Band


Fitness trackers are fantastic for measuring performance but also act as a reminder to move. Find a watch band that you love so you never want to take it off.

Soma Water Bottle


Staying hydrated is essential for flushing out the body. One way to make sure you're getting enough water is to find a pitcher or bottle that you love and keep it on your desk at work. This 25oz Soma Water Bottle is my favorite and is a constant reminder to drink up!

Wander Beauty Eye Mask


After a long week, and as a way to get ready for Monday, Sunday nights are for me. I like to put my boys to bed, put on Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks, and take a restorative yoga class from obé. It's an important self-care moment and sets me up for a great night sleep.
