We Ask Hilary Knight, 'What's In Your Gym Bag?'

By Lisa Costantini | Dec. 22, 2014, 2:45 p.m. (ET)

Ice hockey forward Hilary Knight — who scored Team USA’s first goal at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games — has been going non-stop ever since the Winter Games. She slowed down long enough to give us a peek inside her Nike gym bag. See which items she carries in the name of fitness, and which ones are just for fun.

Workout Wear

Long-sleeve shirt: “For being a winter sport athlete, I get pretty darn cold. I always have a long-sleeve shirt — and I’m usually reppin’ my BodyByBoyle MBSC long-sleeve. Not only is it another layer, but sort of a badge of honor. (Ahem, the results of my training can be seen in ESPN’s latest Body Issue.)”

Navy blue shorts: “I compete for Team USA and it is always an honor to be able to represent our country. I wear all my team-issued gear with pride.”

Under Armour: “Kickin’ that workout's butt. I love the bright, flashy colors and the light texture of this orange shirt. And MUST have extra hair ties! MUST!”

University of Wisconsin rowing hoodie: “GO BADGERS! My two younger brothers row at UW so I get to cheer them on from afar while I am training out east in Boston. Love my school!”


Necklace: “The giving key I am currently wearing has the word "dare" inscribed. [Editor’s note: At some point you’re supposed to give it to someone who you feel needs the message.] I can’t wait to pass it along to someone else!”

Suunto heart rate monitor and watch: “Important and reliable training tools. I’ve been wearing and using Suunto for 10 years!”

Hats: “Hats on hats on hats!  It’s winter — I like hats. They take care of that awkward static. I have a saying, ‘It’s no-brush winter,’ implying I wear hats so much in the winter you wouldn’t notice if I brushed my hair or not! (Hint: I do).”

Socks: “Spice it up. Today’s pick is the STX candy cane white and blues.”

Music: “Beats by Dre earbuds and iPod.” 

Sneakers: “New Balance kicks. Functional and styling!”


Muscle Milk and Cyclone Cup blender bottle: “For recovery.”

Pepto-Bismol: “I mean, you never know.”

SpaRitual Moisture Balm: “Dry lips are no fun.  This all-natural vegan brand is a must have.”

Always pads: “I’m a woman. Enough said.”

Mophie: “I am a girl on the go and I need a charge here and there.”

Trident White: “To stay fresh.”
