In an effort to save time, money, and my sanity, I work out at home. I don't have to drive to the gym, I don't have to worry about sweating profusely in front of any male gym frequenting playahs, and I don't have to curse myself for spending hundreds of hard-earned dollars on a pricey health club membership when I never have the stamina to go.
In order to perk up my pythons, I recently added pumping iron to my home routine, (Iron = a pair of 3lb vinyl coated dumbbells) and I've realized that swinging a pair of lady-friendly weights during my quickie 20 minute cardio/interval training DVD can be just as (if not more) effective as performing my hour long Reebok challenge cardio workout empty handed. Not to mention that weight training burns more muscle and has a metabolic impact for up to 48 hours after your sweat session is over. Score.
I feel the burn more, I sweat more, my man gives me compliments more. It's a workout that works for me... The only caveat? Worrying that one rogue weight will slip out of my clumsy hands and fly into my flat screen Samsung.
But now, I can enjoy working out without the worry thanks to a hot new line of stylish, weighted women's fitness apparel from w8fit.com
These aren't you're everyday cute gym threads. W8Fit's innovative workout tops, bottoms and accessories feature these ingenious, strategically designed interior pockets that will hold your W8Fit weights of choice while getting your fitness groove on.
Just slip your weights into the powermesh back of your tank, the waistband of your bottoms, or into easy-to-wear cuffs that will provide added resistance to help you intensify any activity or exercise, increase your metabolic rate, and improve your overall results by burning more calories in the same amount of time. Whether you're a runner, dancer, aerobiciser, hot yoga lover or pole vaulter, you'll make every workout more effective and more worth your while.
*Added bonus - get fit while performing normal day to day activities like grocery shopping, cleaning, walking, etc. without anyone ever knowing that you're weighted down. The outfits are sleek, slimming and stylish, featuring breathable lightweight fabrics that will keep you comfortable while looking lean, mean and on the fitness scene.
I'm treating myself to a few mix and match ensembles. What are you w8ing for?
