Disclosure: Los Tweens was provided with a Radio Shack goody bag containing the AUVIO head phones, AUVIO Expandable Blue Tooth Speaker, Power Bank Enercell Portable Charger, Point Mobl Stylus, AUVIO Retractable Audio Cable, and FitBitZip to review. All opinions expressed are our own.
I enjoy being creative, doing something new every day and am easily bored with routine. These character flaws of mine don’t lend themselves well to sticking to an exercise routine. But I’ve learned that I need to arm myself with new equipment, new routines, and keep changing things up to keep myself motivated. While I do enjoy purchasing new work out gear, the techie side of me loves new gadgets. When our friends at RadioShack provided us with a new products to try out, my mind immediately thought of how I could incorporate them into my work out routine.
The item I was most excited for and have heard so many great things about is is the FitBit Zip. The tiny FitBit Zip attaches to your clothing and is so light weight you’ll forget its there. The FitBit keeps tracks of your steps, how many calories you’ve burned and connects with your smartphone, tablet or computer to give you even more information on your progress. The FitBit Zip made me realize how few steps I was taking each day which prompted me to make a change. I have been trying to get up from my computer more often, work in jogs and long walks or even just jogging in place to try to bring that pedometer up to the 10,000 step goal.
I have to listen to music when I work out. It keeps me motivated and makes me work harder. RadioShack and AUVIO have two great options to get the music and heart pumping. The AUVIO High-Performance In-Ear Metal Buds connect to any device with a headphone jack and bring crystal clear quality sound straight to your ears. The ear buds are just as powerful as many of the bulky, popular head phones but they are tiny enough to be used for working out. Another bonus, they have a built in speaker and volume adjuster which makes them great for conference calls.
Working moms know that getting in a work out without the children is not the easiest thing to do. There are often times when I have to invent exercises that I can have all three children do. One of the easiest ones is “dance party”. I can join the kids in dancing around the living room to loud music and we all have a blast. RadioShacks AUVIO Expandable Bluetooth Speaker allows us to not only have a dance party in the living room but any room of the house and even outdoors. The little speaker picks up the bluetooth signal from your phone and plays your favorite music for an entire room to hear. My children absolutely love this speaker. And, I’ve found multiple uses for it other than inciting fun dance parties in our house. I recently used it at a Girl Scout meeting to play freeze dance with las niñas.
