Get on the bottle to stay hydrated when you work out this summer — and add a little something extra to your workout in the form of weighted clothing from W8Fit for maximum impact.
W8Fit offers custom-designed pockets for holding small weights in their quality workout gear, which translates to a more effective workout for you. Why not burn more calories in a shorter amount of time with this inspired addition? Weights come in 5 and 10 lb packets, they’re sleek rather than clunky, and they’re practically invisible inside of the clothing. Find wristbands, headbands, yoga pants, tank tops and other stylish sports clothing and accessories at http://www.w8fit.com.
Banish plastic waste with the 9-ounce S’well bottle, which keeps cold liquids chilly and hot liquids hot. In other words, this is an investment in a useful bottle that can be used all throughout the year. S’well looks quite smart, with colored stainless steel and a sturdy, mod cap. It’s BPA-free, non-leaching and non-toxic. Ice water, juice or milk will stay cold for 24 hours, and coffee, tea or hot chocolate for 12 hours. Choose your favorite color at http://www.swellbottle.com.
Pura stainless steel bottles are also non-toxic, lead-free, and super-durable. Made with 60% recycled steel, their mantra is “One Life, One Bottle.” They’re completely recyclable – not that you’ll need to recycle them, as they come with a lifetime warranty. Available in lime green, pink, orange, purple and silver; check them out at http://www.purastainless.com.
The 24-ounce Bobble sport bottle is soft and indented in the middle for easy carrying, and it comes with a filter so you can enjoy water anywhere. The loop cap is also great for tossing over bike handlebars, and it’s available in seven bright colors. Tote it to music festivals, the gym, picnics, parks and toss it in the car for road trips; http://www.waterbobble.com.
The Spill Spoiler Sport Cap is an inventive new device that attaches to sports drinks and ensures that they can’t drip or leak. An internal valve closes off liquid, so you can enjoy your favorite drink without worrying about spills at the gym or in a careening cab. Also, you can toss a drink into your purse without worry. Amazing! Find them at http://www.SpillSpoiler.com. Sometimes these small changes can contribute to a thoroughly stress-free day.
