In a world of convenience most of us are guilty of skipping workouts because we are short on time. Even professional athletes like some of the SMACKANISTAS (who always get their workouts in at the expense of working in sweaty clothes!) may be tempted to skimp on the little things that enhance training (think: stretching and hydration) in the day to day rush. The good news is that some of the best things you can do to enhance your workout results and enjoyment can be done from home in a relatively short amount of time! Below are our top products and tips that are also a hit with the media this month:
Build Your Home Gym–Excuses are limited when you have all of the equipment you need for a killer strength/core circuit at home! Perfect Fitness has you covered (as seen in Women’s Running and demo’d by Skinny Chick Blog). Install the Multi-Gym in a doorway (it won’t damage it) and keep an Ab Carver Pro with some Resistance Bands nearby and we guarantee you will feel the burn!
Recover Anywhere–Normally we don’t recommend lazy time on the sofa, but sitting down to chill and use the MarcPro is really good for you! It is super portable and not noisy so you can even enhance your muscle recovery at your desk–both WIRED and The Gear Caster recommend MarcPro to reduce soreness and “feel a whole lot fresher the next day.”
Convenient Caffeine–Forget wasting time waiting for a pot of coffee to brew or taking a detour to the coffee shop, keep a Clean Energy Patch handy at all times and simply apply whenever you need an energy boost and mental focus, according to Triathlon Retailer and Industry News! The gentle hum is perfect for a workout–just enough to get you going without overwhelming you with a buzz!
Hydrate At All Times–No excuses on this one! Make sure you have water or your hydration fluid of choice handy at all times. The new Clean Bottle Square is super easy to clean, ultra-portable and even comes with a purifier to enhance flavor with fruit infusion! The entire team of SMACKANISTAS take their orange bottles everywhere!
So forget your excuses! When there is a will (and some great new products), there is a way to meet your health and fitness goals without sacrificing time or results!
