If you do not own a hydro flask you are missing out. Period. Here’s why you want one: When you put liquid into your flask, the temperature of that liquid will not change. Think about it.
Now, I know recently I have embarked on a quest to not have water during class. So you might be wondering why this post is even relevant. Well, it’s relevant for a few reasons:
1. Most people DO drink water during class.
2. I drink water after class, and I want it to be at a temperature I like.
3. You can use it outside of class.
Let’s Talk About Class
I was visiting another studio once and had to purchase water. However, I had brought my hydro flask with me. I poured the water into my flask, but had some water left over. I took both the flask and the remaining liquid into class with me. I didn’t think about it. I just did it.
Well, let’s just say class was rough. By the end, I had emptied my flask, but of course I still had some water left in the bottle I had purchased. I tried to drink it and – blech. It was super warm and disgusting. Meanwhile, the water in my flask had been cool and easy to sip. I had gotten so used to my flask that I had forgotten how much the room can warm a bottle of water. Yes, I know you can put ice in your thermos or whatever you are using, but the flask doesn’t require that (unless you really want it).
Additionally, I can get my flask ready and store it in my car all day long and then go take class. The water temperature will be exactly as I left it. For real.
You gotta stay hydrated, right? I can fill my flask up and leave it in my car while I drive around town in the middle of summer running errands. I can sip it as I go place to place and it never gets hot and yucky. It’s also great for storing juice in. I have two, and I used to fill one with water to have during class and one with cucumber juice to have after class. Even though I left my cucumber juice outside the hot room (drinking that during class doesn’t sound good), I technically could have brought it into the room with me.
Some people have pointed out you can fill it with beer or a margarita and take it to the pool with you. I suppose you could also fill it with these things and take it to class, but I suspect you would pay a mighty nasty price for doing so.
I own two of these – a 40 ounce and a 24 ounce. The 24 ounce is perfect for storing juice and using to run errands. The 40 ounce is great for class. These flasks are also a great way to keep track of your water intake if you struggle to pay attention.
