POLAR LOOP

This one is my personal favorite as I have one myself.  Not only does the Loop count your steps, calculate your calories, and act as a watch, it is the first wearable that connects via bluetooth to a heart rate monitor to provide you with heart-rate readings and heart-rate based calorie information for activities.  Also, based on your recorded activity levels, the Loop calculates a daily activity goal and measures your progress to goal througout the day.  It also has a handy "inactivity alert" feature in case you've been sitting in one place ...

Product Review-Honey Stinger

Product Review-Honey Stinger

This past week I was fortunate enough to receive an awesome assortment of Honey Stinger products. My running schedule had been thrown off kilter lately due to bad weather and a case of the flu. So, when my package arrived I was excited to get better and try these products out. Over the past several days I had a chance to log an 8 mile tempo run, 7 mile easy run and an 8 mile interval run. I have always been a runner who needs a constant supply of fuel while I am out even for shorter distances. Never been a big fan of gels, so the Organic Stinger Waffles were

If I had to pick my absolute favorite piece of equipment in my studio there is no doubt that it would be The GRID. We use these foam rollers at the beginning of each session, during the session and to finish out each session. It’s no exaggeration for me to say how much I love this product! A couple years ago as my running interest increased I started experiencing some overuse injuries that really concerned me. After consulting with my chiropractor the plan was to implement more stretching, more massages and daily hot baths to keep my lower back and glut muscles from getting overly tight. All of this worked to a point that I was able to continue running, but the daily pain was a reminder that I was still missing something.

Sneak Peak at the ElliptiGO!

Sneak Peak at the ElliptiGO!

So this might just be the coolest piece of exercise equipment we have ever seen.  We met the folks from Push Pedal Pull at the Healthy Living Expo last month and were instantly intrigued with this contraption.  We just had to check it out.  We were given the opportunity to test drive it at the expo, but with a slew of booths and pedestrians strolling, we didn’t want to (a) hurt anyone or (b) completely embarrass ourselves by taking out half the Expo. So, Charles with Push Pedal Pull provided us with a demonstration instead.  We were amazed at how easily he was able to maneuver this thing in such s tight space.  It truly looked effortless.  After seeing that and learning more about it, we definitely wanted to introduce it to our ACTIVEBUYS members.  We hope you enjoy it!   See the ElliptiGO in action HERE!
