Product Review: NonaActive JumpRope


PRODUCT REVIEW: NonaActive Jump Rope



Today's review comes courtesy of the NonaActive. They sent me a jump rope package which included a frisbee and a book of skipping songs for kids!  I thought this was a nice touch considering the kids obesity problem we have in this country. Though must kids will probably see this and only use it one or two times, it's still a good way to draw interest into the the frisbee and jump rope. 

The jumprope has soft handles and is pretty light weight. Everything seems to be well made but 
nothing extra special as relates to the equipment. Honestly, I looked through the book of songs one time and don't even know where the frisbee is currently located. However, I use the jump rope about every other day either for myself or with one of my clients. 


In my opinion, jumping rope is a great low impact way to get in shape and lose a little weight.  These are currently retailing for $10.99 which isn't bad in my opinion. Especially considering that you get a frisbee and a book of songs that you can use with your kid or kids.  If interested, here is the link to the amazon vendor Jump rope link

So in conclusion, if you can find  a cheaper durable jump rope by all means get it! But, if you can't then this one is a good value as well. Nothing special about it, but you do get a few additions that you may or may not find useful.

RIMSports Ankle Strap: Product Review


RIMSports Ankle Strap: Product Review


So I got another package in the mail to review. This time it was the RIMSports Ankle Straps. Upon opening the package I noticed two straps were included.  I was hoping they would have included some carabiners as well but it was just the straps. 

I did like the color of the ankle straps though. They were black with the letters highlighted in hot pink. Most times, ankle straps are used by women so I thought this was pretty appropriate. Though, I had been trying to make it to the gym to use these with one of my clients, scheduling conflicts and vacations delayed my review of this product.  Instead of using the gym though, I decided to hook them up to my resistance bands. 
These bands were easy to hook up, and my client thought they were comfortable as well. Below is a quick snippet of her using the ankle straps. I put her through a glute and hamstring workout on this day. With the resistance, her legs were instantly burning! Thus, I'd say the ankle straps achieved the desired result. 

If you are in the market for some light weight equipment that is easy to slip into your gym bag, then I think these are a good addition.  They are currently being sold for $19.99 on amazon.

Healthy Soda Alternative! Easy to make and tastes good! 2 Ingredients!

Time and time again, I here the same thing. People tell me, "I hate drinking water, water is nasty!"
Then I ask them if they drink sodas, and they tell me yes. Some people tell me, that's all they drink. Sodas are high in Calories. For my example, we'll use a 12 oz can of Coca-cola.
We are talking 140 calories, of which 39grams of that is straight high fructose corn syrup which is high on the glycemic index and bad for your body in general http://www.naturalnews.com/024466_corn_health_HFCS.html  . On a 20oz bottle which some of you probably drink in one sitting. Check out the ingredient list.
Now let's contrast that with my alternative.
Click my video to see the difference

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

*I know there is some debate about whether agave nectar is healthy or not. If you choose to avoid it, you can substitute with STEVIA, HONEY, MAPLE SYRUP, and/or DATE SYRUP.  Be creative, with your recipes!
I've seen one with a little lemon juice, and strawberries blended together with sparkling water to make a delicious pink lemonade concoction.

What's in your water!?

The goal is to be Alkaline. Our bodies run well in the Alkaline state but disease, cancers, etc... develop when we are acidic. Lately, my wife and I have been studying Dr. Sebi alot lately. If you are not on Dr. Sebi, he was the Dr. that Lisa " Left Eye" Lopez was visiting prior to her untimely death.
http://drsebiscellfood.com/ 

Now, I'm not selling any of his products nor am I affiliated with him, I am just promoting the eating style that he advises.  I have heard many testimonies of people who have lost significant amounts of weight 30lbs + without even exercising, just due to their diet change to the ALKALINE based diet.

That being said, one component of that is drinking lots of WATER. However, some of us may be sabotaging ourselves if the water we are drinking is severely ACIDIC.

That said, watch this video. And if you are a DASANI water drinker, or AQUAFINA, then leave that mess alone and put it back on the shelf!


Hope this helps someone!!! Have a BEAUCOUPFIT DAY!!!

Product Review-The TripleBooster - A Powerful 3 Ports USB Car Charger 7.2A 36W With 2.4A On Each Port. Comes with 3 USB Cables For iPhone 4/5/6, Android, PSP,Camera etc. Also Comes With a Cloth Bag, All in One Set!

Only 14.90 on Amazon now you can charge your 3 of your cell phones and/ or other small accessories at the same time.  The chargers work well and come in handy especially if you are headed out of the house but didn't get a chance to get that final charge in. Here's a link to the product in the event you are interested in buying 
TripleBooster-Powerful-Charger


So far so good. I like the ability to charge 3 different devices at one time. There is not much I can say that the other reviewers haven't said. The portability and convenience of use rank this product really high in my book. I use it to charge my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my Samsung Galaxy notebook.
This is a good little charger to have if you are ever on the go or if you forgot to charge your phone the night or day before work. So far everything is holding up well. Hope to get many years of use out of it.
