I fell in LOVE with these headbands the first time I ever used them. I can’t stand having hair in my face when I am working out and Sweaty Bands really do their job. Using a non slip grip, they stay put through your hardest workouts and no matter how much you sweat or hard the wind blows. And with over 900 patterns, you will have on trouble fining one you love. And if you can’t, you have the option of creating your own custom Sweaty Band.
Vitamix – Shimitamix! This blender could slice, dice and puree a concrete block! The Ninja Master Prep Blender is perfect for making smoothies and protein shakes. Toss in ice cubes, nuts, fruits, veggies, whatever and it will come out smooth as silk! A little spendy but totally worth it. It has become a staple in my kitchen!
The hair tie that actually doubles as a super cute bracelet. I wear a few at a time, one in my hair and a one or ten on my wrist. I am always losing the plain black hair ties, which is ok. They are constantly breaking, stretching out and breaking my hair. Mane Message hair ties stay put without breaking my hair and because they are brightly colored, I never lose them. Mane Message hair ties come in a ton of colors, variety packs and gift packs. But online and used coupon code HOLLY and get 20% off and a free gift.

I love this vest!!!! It adds just enough weight to fry my legs during my plyo workouts or kicks up my leg workouts to the next level. I love doing walking lunges when wearing this vest. A 10# version is also available.
Don’t knock it until you try it! When a client of mine suggested I add it into my chest routine, I laughed at him. I am not one to try “infomercial” products because they are usually cheesy and junk. But I tried it and it took my pushup to a whole new level – it added depth and rotation into a normal pushup while keeping me in perfect form with less strain on my wrists.
The T-grip Lite bar will not disappoint. This bar is versatile in terms of the exercises you can do and since it’s just one single piece of equipment, you won’t have to make much of an investment to get started lifting weights. The bars unique shape allows you to do various types of grips for any style of exercise.
The benefit of wearing compression socks over 26.2 miles, 18 holes or 8 hours at work is the delay of muscular breakdown that comes from spending hours on your feet. PRO Compression socks and sleeves increase blood flow, relieve discomfort and assist in recovery. The minute you put them on, you’ll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World’s Best Athletic Performance Socks! Every race I have run this year, I wore my Marathon Socks and I noticed a difference in how my legs and feet felt during and after the race. No cramping, no swelling and a few new PR’s.
The Lebert Equalizer is a simple, portable, yet multi-purpose and versatile piece of strength training equipment that works arms, chest, back and core muscles like no other can, using your own body weight as resistance. Participants use their own body weight as resistance and decide what level is right for them by “self-spotting” (using the legs to assist the user to perform exercises and/or when they cannot continue an exercise. Modified pullups, pushups, tricep dips can all be done on the Lebert with ease. You control how much of your own bodyweight you use to perform an exercise.
