So I have heard a TON of positive things about the It Works wrap and got the opportunity to try one out. If you are one of the few people on the earth who have not heard about the wrap let me give you a quick rundown. Its a non woven cloth infused with a botanical formula that refreshes and renews the skin and may help reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.  You can use the wrap on just about any part of your body, Neck, tummy, butt, arms , legs etc. Although they say only to use one wrap at a time.

Review: The Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack

71h+gv0a+eL._SL1500_I was sent the  Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack to try out and review.

I have been working out with a personal trainer twice a week and have been busting my ass in becoming the best me that I can be *yes I’m aware that was super cheesy*

The package included a body tape to measure waist, thighs and arms and a body fat test caliper so you can confirm your weight progress and see where your muscles grow and where your fat goes away.

The Body tape measures up to 78 inches and has a push button locking retraction for easy measuring. It measures in both inches and centimeters and is made of ABS with a vinyl tape so that it will last a long time. The body fat test caliper employs a simple time tested mechanical means of testing body fat without the need of electrical and battery powered devices.  The Body Fat Test Caliper includes a body fat chart for men and women that categorizes and helps you understand your body fat levels.  

I love how easy they are to use! The body tape is my favorite as using my normal tape was frustrating as I could never get it in the same spot twice. This helps keeps everything accurate and helps motivate me as I see my progress. Since going to my trainer I have lost .50 inches on my waist and arms and 2 inches on my thighs!  You can purchase your own set here on amazon where they sell for $9.95

Review: FXP Hula Hoop Fitness Starter Kit

Untitled

I got the pleasure of getting the FXP starter kit sent to me! Talking about mixing exercise and old school fun! The FXP starter kit was specifically desgined for people who are just beginning their fitness journey or perhaps new to hula hooping for fitness.

The Starter kit comes with:

  • FXP Hula Hoop® with Easy Spin Technology in your choice of color: teal, pink, or purple
  • Carrying Bag
  • Non Slip Mat
  • Level 1 DVD
  • Workout Guide

So lets be honest here, your thinking Hula Hooping? Exercise? Pullllease! Seriously this is sure to kick your ass. I used to do it as a kid but apparently somewhere between childhood and now, this shit got tough and became a kick ass workout! The Hula hoop itself weighs 2lbs so you are sure to work a ton of muscles and in my case gain a few bruises around your mid section.

I had a weighted hula hoop before in the past but not only was it to heavy for me to keep up it also took up a ton of room because it was a huge pain in the ass to break down. This hula hoop breaks down and easily stores in its bag within seconds. Plus it gets so small, I can actually store this in my gym bag and keep it with me in case I ever decide to bust out my hula hoop at the gym, park or wherever else I get the urge to groove!

This starter kit runs $44.95 and is totally worth it. I’m going to start making this apart of my daily exercise… however not going to lie… I’m going to totally need to practice because right now all my exercise is coming from bending over and picking it back up!

Review: Etekcity RoverBeats

61zDsZEPx8L._SL1500_

I was RoverBeats by Etekcity to review. These sleep bluetooth heaphones are pretty awesome! So before you stop reading because you think something this awesome must be super expensive you are wrong. These are affordably priced at  $37.99 and you can purchase them on Amazon.

So what makes these so amazing? Well for starters how easy they are to use! Aside from listening to your favorite music and movies you can also take calls and even reject them if you please 🙂

61KBhLiesBL._SL1500_

the controls located on the headset. The controls are

  • Volume down / Mute call
  • Volume Up / Reject Call
  • An LED  Indicator
  • Turn on / Pairing mode/ play / pause / turn off / answer call / end call button (lots of functions for that button)
  • Previous
  • Next

also has a built in mic and a micro usb slot for charging.  Each charge will last approximately ten hours. Hate when your head phones just randomly die? Yeah me too! The Roverbeats  shows the battery status on all IOS devises. However the Roverbeats are compatible with ALL Bluetooth devices.

Still not impressed?

Strength Stack 52 Complete Pack Review


bc22e3d0d30aff08334039afd9b8b846db47fa4cI was sent the Stack 52 weight Loss card and dice game to review through Tomoson. This is a really fun awesome weigh to mix fitness and fun. You can find them here on the Stack52 Site. This complete set sells for $48.97 right now its on sale, usually it sells for $89.95. Each card has a description of the exercise, a picture of the exercise and then a QR link that you scan scan with your phone to see a video of the exercise.

The Weight Loss Cards are awesome. Each card has a weight loss tip, and each tip that you do you get that many points for it. An example of one of these cards is Drink water before a meal, 1 pt.  You get facts on why this is important to do. Each stack of cards.

I think this is a really fun creative way to work out. I currently have them at work on my desk and when it gets slow I try and get my coworkers to join me in a quick game of who can do the most and the fastest of whatever card we flip. Its pretty fun. love it!
