Fitness is really important for everyone. Your health is the one thing that you can control, whether you want to believe it or not. A healthy person can be any size. I believe this because controlling your intake and your activity level depends on you. You’re the only one who can do this for your body. Empower Fitness makes fitness equipment that will help you enjoy exercise so that you can have the healthy body you want.
Being a busy working mom makes exercise “impossible”. At least that is what I tell myself. Really, the truth is, I don’t like to exercise. I’m not sure why. I guess it has to do with the exercising part. Who wants sore muscles? Who wants to be sweaty? Who wants to look weird in the gym not exercising the “proper” way? I’m the first to raise my hands to all of these questions.
“Empower is a community of real women who simply want to feel better in our skin, look better in our clothes and feel just a little brighter in our brains. We’re about healthy not hip, fitness not perfection, and strength not guilt.”
Enter Empower Fitness and their extremely cool gear. They have taken a hula hoop (yep, remember elementary PE Class) and made it into a fun exercise element. The Cardio Core and More has 3 pounds of adjustable weight for you to hula yourself fit. It’s a core workout that will not only having you sweating, burning calories and having fun, it will also have your kids and spouse asking to hula too! Cardio Core and More is available in store at Target.
My daughter decided that she was going to hula every day because she is off from track for the summer. She’s s a hula master, so I figured she would want to do this. After about a minute she was huffing, puffing and sweating. With a regular hula hoop, she can hula for hours without stopping. This just shows that it’s more of a workout than with a regular hoop. The weights on this can be adjusted so that the exercises get harder. It’s really a neat way to get your core workout in and have your kids “play” with you. Did I mention this is not only a core workout but a cardio workout as well?
Another piece of equipment I tried out was the 3-in-1 KettleBell. A normal kettle bell is just one weight. Empower’s kettle bell is four weights in one. It’s adjustable (5lb, 8lb, 9lb and 12 lbsso when you need more weight (less in my case), you just add the pieces one at a time. It’s designed for a woman’s hands…made of comfortable plastic so that it doesn’t hurt your nails or your hands. Its design also helps to control your moves for an easier workout. The 3-in-1 KettleBell is available on Amazon.com.
The last product I have from Empowered Fitness is the 5 pound Zobi. This is a unique tool is only comparable to a medicine ball. Except this one is so much easier to hold on to. The Zobi is a four point tool that is made to be ergonomically designed for easier handling. It is scientifically proven to burn more calories than that of traditional medicine balls because its design is unbalanced and destabilizing which helps to burn 25% more calories. It’s filled with sand which makes it squishy and fun to use. The silicone outside makes it easy to grip. The Zobi is perfect for cardio and strength workouts. Zubi is available at Kohl’s.
Did I mention that all of these products come with their own workout DVD? You can also download workouts from the Empower Fitness website. This company believes in you and that you can have a healthy body so you will live happy lives. Anyone can fit these 11 minute workout into their daily routine. And, with the fun tools they have, who wouldn’t want to hula hoop to get healthy?
