The Perfect Plank:
Not to toot my own horn, but when it comes to planking I could hold myself up for hours! Eventually though my arms would tire and start to cramp, especially on a wooden floor. When I tried the Perfect Plank for the first time only two words popped into my head – extreme comfort.

Picture a standard yoga block. This generic prop would appear to have no room for improvement, but Stick-e has added additional functionality and comfort making it a two–in–one product. Perfect Plank combines the traditional foam yoga block with a wrist saving push up device to create the perfect form. The Stick-e Wrist Saver Block is a foam block with an internal handle providing optimal wrist positioning during upper body weight bearing exercises for better strength and superior comfort. The blocks can also be stacked on top of each other enabling a full range of motion during pushups and tricep dips.

Non Slip Yoga Towel:
When I take time out of my busy and hectic week to attend a hot yoga class, I’m looking forward to some stress relief. There’s nothing I hate more than being in a deep pose and having to break my concentration to adjust my soaking wet towel in order to fully cover my yoga mat.

Entering the Hot Yoga market, Stick-e introduces a non-slip full mat length towel. This is the only towel on the market with a smooth Slip less surface on one side providing superior comfort and grip, not to mention a nifty drawstring mesh back pack to go along with it for easy storage–A perfect alternative to my classic plastic bag.

Beam Fit:
This is by far the best at home workout I’ve tried and is super beneficial to the core. Introducing the newest craze in health clubs around the world, Beamfit is the perfect in-home, full body workout that can grow with the user. The Beamfit Balance and Exercise Beam offers four workouts designed to promote better balance while building core strength and improving muscle tone.

Slimmie’s Weight Loss Chocolates:
Now you can have your chocolate and eat it too! Any product that puts chocolate and weight loss in the same sentence is worth a try. Slimmies is not only tasty but super beneficial. This powerful treat provides weight loss, appetite surpression and fat obstruction. Each chocolate contains a highly refined form of Konjac Glucomannan, which gently expands with water to help you feel full faster, so you eat less. When you do eat, Konjac Glucomannan will help obstruct the fats and calories from the food you eat. Both will help reduce your calorie intake to help you lose weight! The results are clinically proven and in plain sight below!

I have a BEAMFIT BEAM. I bought it on HSN and I must say it is the BEST fitness “thing” I have ever bought. I use it instead of a mat and have found it challenges me in a whole new way with EVERY move I make. I also do the DVD that comes with it and let me tell you – STANDING and moving on this thing challenges the core and posture like I never imagined. I stand taller and feal “sleaker” you have to get one ……. just my 2 cents!
