Here are 5 Things You Need for the 4th of July

Here are 5 Things You Need for the 4th of JulyFather’s Day has passed, and Independence Day is quickly approaching. There are many people getting their final plans together, doing last minute shopping, fixing the yard up for the annual bbq and arranging travel plans. After all, the 4th of July is usually an exciting holiday, and you want it to be even better than the previous year. We get it! We want you to have the best 4th of July as you possibly can. Because of this, I wanted to point out a few things you may have forgotten. Here are 5 Things You Need for the 4th of July:

Oregon Scientific AW133 Grill Right Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer
Family and friends will be over, and that grill is already going. However, it’s already hot outside. What’s the point in standing directly over the hot flames waiting for your food to be prepared? Pick up an Oregon Scientific AW133 Grill Right Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer. The Oregon Scientific AW133 Grill Right Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer allows you to program your choice of cooking modes on the user-friendly app on your compatible smart device, and it will notify you on your phone once your food has reached its desired temperature. This makes grilling much easier, and frees up your time to enjoy your guests more.

Aquabot By Lunatec
July usually brings the heat with it. While sitting out in the sun, waiting on the next hot dog to come off of the grill, why not cool yourself down a little bit. The Aquabot makes your water bottle spray 25-feet and has shower, stream and mist spray patterns. This is perfect for having impromptu water fights on those really hot days. Now go blast someone and get the war started!

Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker Plus Smart Notifications
Planning and prepping for the entire family to come over can be very time consuming, and can easily throw you off of your workout routine. However, chances are you’re still getting a workout between cooking, cleaning, bringing out new drinks for the cooler, lifting bags of ice, and more. Because this is an accidental workout, I suggest strapping on a Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker Plus Smart Notifications (Blue) and compare your accidental workout to your planned routine.

GoPro Hero4 Silver Edition HD Action Camera with 32GB Ultra Memory Card
We all know that the best moments are usually caught unexpectedly, which is why I suggest having a GoPro Hero4 Silver Edition HD Action Camera with 32GB Ultra Memory Card on hand during the festivities. Mount it onto a wandering dog to pick up random footage, or put it on a camera stand and capture as many memories as possible. You can even send the footage to the family as a keepsake, to remind them of the good times you all shared together.

H2FidO Bottle and Bowls Hydration System for Dogs
Of course, we can’t forget about the pups. Usually, during my bbq’s my girls are out in the yard roaming among the visitors. Because they’re out in the sun as well, their hydration is very important. The H2FidO Bottle and Bowls Hydration System for Dogs are a BPA-Free lightweight, reusable portable hydration system for dogs. It makes it really easy to give them water, without having to pack up their indoor bowls and bring them outdoors.

Now that you’re all prepared for the fourth, get out there and enjoy your independence and freedom. Food, family, fun, and fitness should be your main goals for this day. Happy 4th of July!

Here’s is Your Father’s Day Lazy Man’s Fitness Guide

Here's is Your Father's Day Lazy Man's Fitness GuideSunday, June 21, 2015, is Father’s Day. While many of you have plans and adventures scheduled throughout the day, there are many others who plan on being just being lazy. It’ll just be another day to kick back and put your feet up and enjoy. While this may sound pleasing, your body may be telling you a different story. This is especially true if these “lazy days” are way too frequent. If you’re a self-proclaimed lazy individual, a good idea would be to look into fun ways to be fit or even discover “Lazy Ways To Fitness”. Because it’s Father’s Day, we’re going to do the work for you, that way it’s one less finger you have to lift. Here’s is Your Father’s Day Lazy Man’s Fitness Guide:

Exercise While Watching TV
It’s Father’s Day! Of course there will be many of you sitting back, with your feet up, watching Sports Center, just relaxing the day away. Rather than sit on the chair, replace it with a fitness ball. Maybe not for the entire day, but try 10-15 minutes, or switch from the chair to the fitness ball during commercial breaks. Using a fitness ball will strengthen your core and give you better balance. The beautiful part is you won’t even feel like you’re working out.

Get Out and Play
How often do you really get a chance to get out to play and have fun? Call up a few friends and plan a Sunday Father’s Day Game. This can even be made into a family affair. While all fathers and sons are on the field, wives and daughters can be cheerleaders and even help get water or snacks. While you’re getting a great cardio and strength training on the field, you can also burn up to 800 calories per hour. If you’re really into fitness, strap on your Fitbit Charge Wireless Activity Monitor during the game, and really see what you did out on the field. Don’t feel too bad for the girls. Cheering and jumping up and down will surely give them their daily workout too.

Take a Romantic Stroll
After you’ve made all of your rounds, and thanked everyone for the Happy Father’s Day wishes, it’s time for you to take a moment to yourself and your wife or partner. After supper is served, and the dishes are cleaned, take a romantic stroll with your better half. At this point today, many of us are well aware of the benefits and advantages there are to walking. However, this walk is different. It doesn’t even feel like exercise. You’re walking in the summer air, hand in hand, without a care in the world. Do this for 20 minutes, and you can easily burn up to 100 calories from that Father’s Day Dinner. Just for fun, grab a Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker Plus Smart Notifications and see how many steps you take.

Walk When You Talk
If you’re anything like me, you cannot stay still when you’re on the telephone. I literally walk around anything from the kitchen or dining room table, to the living room chair or up and down the hallway. Whatever the reason is, I just have to pace while I am on the telephone. On Father’s Day, I’m sure you’ll be receiving an abundance of phone calls from various family members and friends. During each of these calls, just pace a little while you are on the telephone. This is a great way to accidentally exercise, as pacing can burn approximately 90 calories per hour. Yes, those phone calls do add up. You should also try leaving your cell phone across the room. Because we live in an age where many people may text Happy Father’s Day, this will force you to get up and walk across the room to retrieve your phone.

Drink Water
The easiest thing you can do for yourself and your health on Father’s Day isn’t even an exercise. Drink plenty of water. Studies have shown that individuals who consumed two glasses of water before each meal lost more than 4.5 pounds over the course of 3 months. The consumption of water helps you to feel fuller, which has you to consuming fewer calories at a meal. Pick up an Eco Vessel AQUA 24oz Insulated Filtration Water Bottle and keep your water handy. This BPA Free water bottle will keep your water cold up to 36 hours.

Now you have a reason to get off of your butt for Father’s Day, while still enjoying the activities at hand. Don’t be afraid to make changes to these activities. If you’re more of a basketball family than football, a 3 on 3 or a full court 5 on 5 is also a fantastic workout. Chances are you won’t even feel like you’ve had a workout. Happy Healthy Father’s Day!

Capture The Moment With GoPro

Capture The Moment With GoProHave you ever had one of those moments where you thought to yourself, ‘Man, I really wish I had my camera with me?’ If you answered yes, like many of us have, then a GoPro is right for you. GoPro action cameras are light, versatile, and even waterproof (depending on the model). The GoPro camera can go virtually anywhere with you, making it easy to capture those ‘Wow!’ moments. What do I mean by you can take GoPro virtually anywhere? I mean, you can take GoPro any and everywhere cameras are permitted.

If you live in the inner city then you know the amount of action you can see is priceless. I remember as a child, growing up, I would see some of the best talent around, just by going outside. Riding the bus, you’d hear some of the most beautiful voices known to man, in the back, singing. Going to the park was always an adventure as well. I’d see some of the best sports players (non-professional) playing right there on the city courts, then there were the wild police chases. Every day was an adventure, and there was never a shortage of action. I can only imagine the footage I could catch today with my GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition HD Action Camera With 32GB Hi Def Memory Card. Perhaps I could have discovered the next R&B/Pop sensation. Perhaps I still Can!

How about a weekend getaway to the beach? I’m in! You never know what’s going to happen when you hit the Jersey Shore. This is the exact reason you must take the GoPro Hero3 White Action High Definition Camera! Mary Lee, the Great White Shark, recently traveled past the Jersey Shore, showing up approximately 700 meters off the Coast of Toms River on Sunday before heading past Asbury Park further offshore. Just imagine how cool it would be to capture a quick video on your GoPro Hero3 White Action High Definition Camera, sharing this amazing experience with all of your friends. Don’t worry. Your GoPro would have been fine, as it’s waterproof to 131’ (40m).

I’ll admit it. I’m not a surfer. However, sometimes I wish I could master the sport. Aside from the physical benefits, it just has to be cool to really be able to ride the waves. It’ll be 10 times cooler if the entire experience was captured on film. With the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition HD Action Camera Surf Bundle you can do just that. Ride the waves while wearing a mounted GoPro to capture the most amazing moments. With basic features like: 4K30, 2.7K50 and 1080p120 video; 12MP photos up to 30 frames per second; Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and Protune™ for photos and video; and Waterproof to 131’ (40m) you really can’t go wrong!

Skydiving has always been something that I wanted to do. Believe it or not! But the GoPro Hero High Definition Action Camera makes me want to do it that much more. Sometimes I am a big kid at heart. When I get something new, I just don’t want to stop using it. When I first purchased my GoPro Hero High Definition Action Camera, it was to record my nephews birthday party. After the party, it kind of became my own entertainment tool. I’d take footage of everything and then, when one friend said, “I wonder how I’d look jumping out of a plane!” It was then that the idea was birthed. Now if only GoPro offered courage as another one of their features!

Family bbq’s are usually pretty exciting… And if your family is anything like mine, prepare to be entertained. These are the moments when the precious memories are usually created. You get everything from relay races, to red light green light, a few people playing football and basketball, kickball, and even singers… Or so they think (perhaps adult beverages helped). It is in these moments that you bring out your GoPro Hero4 Silver Edition HD Action Camera with 32GB Ultra Memory Card and capture those memories. Be sure to have the 32GB memory card inserted, you want to make sure you don’t miss anything.

You never really know when life is going to throw a GoPro opportunity your way. Don’t miss out on the chance to record that special moment in time. Be sure to check to see what is included with your GoPro, as some accessories are sold separately. Click here to view all GoPro items and accessories. And get out there and see exciting things that life has to offer. Take your GoPro and Capture Life!

6 Low Impact Exercises That You Can Do In or Around The House

6 Low Impact Exercises That You Can Do In or Around The HouseAs the warmer season makes its presence known, the fitness junkies are beginning to take their workouts outdoors. I am seeing them everywhere from the park, to jogging down the street, and even biking to work. Sadly, there are still plenty of people who take no steps towards physical fitness or health. Maybe they’re just not interested. However, more often than not, the reasons or excuses I hear is limited time, I have children, or something similar in nature. In this blog, I will provide you with :

Take a Walk
Walking is an ideal exercise, that doesn’t cost you anything. On top of that, walking can be done any time of day, and virtually anywhere. With the warmer weather coming in, start taking an extra stroll around the block. If you live in an area that isn’t warm enough for you as of yet, try going to the mall. This gives you a reason to walk and shop. Don’t forget to grab your Pedusa PE-771 Tri-Axis Multi-Function Pocket Pedometer and Clip to track your steps.

Spruce Up the Yard
You’d be surprised at how much of a workout you can get by getting your yard ready. Raking and mowing the lawn requires you to walk, while tasks like removing the trash bags of accumulated debris from the winter can require heavy lifting. You think the benefits are over? Think again. Try planting new flowers. Each time you have to dig a new hole take advantage of the opportunity to squat and or stretch, this can be a great workout for those leg and arm muscles. Now your yard is beautiful and you just had a day full of burning calories.

Take a Hike
Hiking is a great way to include family and friends into your workout. Pick a weekend and get as many relatives together as possible and hit the trail. If you’re not too familiar with hiking, it would be wise to pick a trail that isn’t too difficult. Grab a Garmin Fenix 2 GPS Watch to help you navigate, along with a Geigerrig Rig 710 Pressurized Hydration Pack to make sure you stay properly hydrated.

Swimming
Swimming is one of the best exercises there is that will tone your entire body, while using almost every muscle in the body. Because water makes you feel weightless, you can easily breeze through exercises like squats and crunches. While exercising in the water seems easier, the overall results will surely be felt.

Try Yoga
Yoga offers both physical and psychological benefits. Grab your Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat/Towel for Hot Yoga and set the mood with your favorite scented candle, while practicing your yoga poses.

Cycling
Riding a bicycle is an excellent way to lose or control weight. Cycling raises your metabolic rate, builds muscle and burns body fat at the same time. If weight loss is the goal, then you should partner your workout with a healthy diet. Now would be a great time to grab your Polar RC3 Integrated GPS Bike with Heart Rate and hit the road.

Physical health is not only achieved in the gym, but can be achieved anywhere. You simply have to make up your mind that you are going to start being healthy, and be willing to take small steps to reach your goals. Get out there and have fun with fitness!

6 Ways Golf is Good For You

6 Ways Golf is Good For YouThe air is fresh and the sun is shining. The grass is getting green and the flowers are beginning to bloom. My favorite part is that the Outdoor Sports are making a comeback. Football with the guys in the yard, baseball season, and a good 3 on 3 basketball game sounds great. Then there’s good old golf. There are many people who think golf is not a physical sport, but the physical health benefits are huge. Let’s look at 6 Ways Golf is Good For You:

 

Walking Power
Golf is a great way to get your walking exercises. Studies have shown that an 18-hole round approximately burns up 2,000 calories for walking while carrying clubs or 1,300 calories when riding in a cart. A walked 18-hole round, carrying a bag or using a hand/pull cart, is approximately equal to a 5-mile walk. Grab an Impact Sports Epulse 2 Strapless Heart Rate Monitor (Continuous Readings) with Pedometer Function and see how many steps you can take while on the course.

Burn Calories
Studies have shown that an individual who weighs approximately 150-200 pounds, will burn between 2,000 to 2,700 calories by walking an 18-hole golf course. It takes 3,500 burned calories to lose one pound.

Fights Against Heart Disease
Studies show that the strong health benefits found in walking can also protect golfers against heart disease. Any form of walking is good for you, even if that means you’re just chasing after golf balls all day.

Stress Relief
Stress can be a pain in the neck for all of us. Of course, a Thermophore Heating Pad or Ice It product can help with that. You can also use golf as a stress reliever. Being in an outdoor area where you can mesh well with others who share your interests is a great way to forget your troubles. Many golfers choose golf courses that allow them consistent access to their favorite types of holes and other benefits to keep them happy.

Stimulates Blood Circulation
Studies suggest that playing golf may actually stimulate blood circulation with your brain. This helps to improve nerve cell connections, and may actually delay dementia onset.

Bone Health
Weight bearing exercises are great for your bones.  Individuals who do them two to three times a week can create long, lean muscle mass. Exercise of this type can help prevent bone degeneration, including osteoporosis. Carrying your golf clubs is a great way to include weight bearing into your golf game. Try using a double strapped bag to make it easier on yourself.

Now that you’ve been armed with details on how golfing is good for you, it’s time to grab a few buddies and your Garmin Approach S6 Golf Watch and hit the golf course!

Keep and Reach Your Spring Fitness Goals

Keep and Reach Your Spring Fitness GoalsSpring is in the air, and fitness is one of the main things on everyone’s mind. We get to shed our winter coats and welcome in t-shirts, tank tops, and even more, the shorts (depending on the region you live in). Most of us have one thing in mind, and that’s to be in great physical shape for the summer. There’s plenty of guys who are anticipating going shirtless at the beach, many women are looking to flaunt washboard like abs in their two piece bikinis. Unfortunately, there is a good number of people who will not even come close to their fitness goals. This doesn’t occur because the individual is lazy, but rather they have set unrealistic expectations. Here are a few ways to .

Set Reachable Goals
Setting a reachable goal is the first step. Be realistic when setting your goals. Telling yourself that you want to lose 30 pounds in one week is highly unlikely. If you’re workout isn’t geared towards weight loss, you still want to be reasonable with your expectations. Remember the quote, “It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice. Give it 12 weeks. Don’t QUIT!”

Do it For Yourself
Quite often I hear people attempting a physical fitness regimen in an attempt to attract the opposite sex. The thing with this is its pretty easy to lose this kind of motivation. After all, the very guy or girl that you’re interested in may not have the same interest in you. If he or she was your motivation, you’d now need something new to get you motivated. However, if you were attempting to reach a healthy fitness level for yourself, others would not have an impact on your routines.

Use Pictures
Using pictures is an excellent way to stay motivated. Sometimes seeing our progress gives us an extra push. Start off taking a before picture on Day 1. 4-6 weeks later, take another picture to compare. Every few weeks snap another. This would be a great opportunity to break out your GoPro Hero4 Silver Edition HD Action Camera with 32GB Ultra Memory Card.

Use a Heart Rate Monitor
Using a heart rate monitor is a great tool when practicing new fitness routines. Many of these monitors’ counts steps, calories burned, cadence and more. This allows you to gauge your workouts and see where you can use additional training and also determine which routines are adequate. I would recommend going with the Garmin Forerunner 310XT GPS Personal Trainer with Heart Rate Premium Strap.

Now that you have a few tools to reach your Spring Fitness Goals, go out there and get started. Remember, there are plenty more ways of staying motivated, such as working out in a group setting. If you realize that something not listed is working for you, stick to it. After all, you know what will keep you going. Happy Spring Fitness!

Don’t Let Spring Fever Turn Into Spring Injuries

Spring injuriesSpring has sprung, and many people are working hard to obtain that desired beach body look. There are those who are experienced in the fitness world, who will be coming out of hibernation, and there will be the beginners who want to have that sculpted look but aren’t sure how to obtain it. Unfortunately, when we see an uptick in fitness we also see an increase in fitness related injuries. There are many preventative measures that can be taken to decrease injuries associated with exercise. . Here are a few things you can do to decrease you risk of fractures, swelling, pulls, and sprains.

Have a Routine Physical / Fitness Test
Always consult your physician before beginning a new exercise routine. New physical activities have the ability to cause stress on your body, as it is doing movements that the body isn’t accustomed to. You may have certain medical conditions that restricts certain exercises. Visiting your doctor is beneficial because he/she should be able to discuss your limits.

Visit a Personal Trainer
Using a personal trainer can be highly beneficial to your workout. After all, they’re professionals in their field, and can help you determine your limits by pointing out strengths and weaknesses. If a trainer is out of your budget, using a Garmin Forerunner 310XT GPS Personal Trainer with Heart Rate Premium Strap during your workout can be a big help.

Warm Up Before Exercise
Warming up is one of the best ways to prevent fitness injuries. Your warm up should be gradual, slowly work your way up. Walking, jogging, or even regular daily activities are great ways to increase your body’s stamina.

Take Time for Rest and Recovery
It is very important to take rest days and even get more sleep. When you don’t take enough time for rest, your body can become over trained, causing reduced immunity which can make getting the common cold much easier .

Dress Properly
Take extra precautions when the weather is very cold. Remember to wear layers, gloves, a hat, and socks.

Stretch Properly
Proper stretching can also be beneficial to reducing fitness related injuries. When stretching, be sure to constantly breathe. Not doing so can cause your blood pressure to rise. Hold your stretch for 10 to 60 seconds, exhaling while moving into the stretch.

Heating Pad
Placing a heating pad for 5-10 minutes on the muscles helps bring blood to the area to warm them up. Heat will also help loosen muscles and tendons. I recommend going with the Thermophore Moist Heating Pads.

Remember, do not overextend your joints during training exercises. Try waiting 48 hours before you work the same muscle group again. If you’ve already had an unfortunate sports or fitness related injury, visit our Sports Therapy section and find everything you need including Mueller Braces/ Body Support, Omron electroTHERAPY Pain Relief, and Ice Packs/ Cold Therapy.

How Much Walking it Takes to Burn Easter Candy Calories?

How Much Walking it Takes to Burn Easter Candy Calories?Easter Sunday, will be here in a matter of days, and the children are more excited about the April 5th date than ever. Many of them know that this is the holiday where they receive gifts in the form of Easter Baskets. While there are often gifts included, most of the children are interested in the candy that will be provided. Who can really blame them? This is one of the few holidays where candy is given to them without them having to ask. After all, who can really resist jellybeans, or chocolate bunnies, or even Chocolate Easter Eggs and Peeps?

While the candy itself may be irresistible, it comes at a price of the calories that comes with them. The key is “moderation”. Too much of anything isn’t good for you, and the exercise it takes to burn off such calories is often times much more than the candy was worth. Let’s check out How Much Walking it Takes to Burn Easter Candy Calories. This is providing you’re able to clear one mile in 2,000 steps.

25 Small Jellybeans
Jellybeans are not huge, but 25 of the small candies comes to 140 calories. You will need to walk 1.4 miles or 2800 steps to burn the calories off.

5 Peeps
No one can usually eat just one of those little sugary Peeps. However, you shouldn’t eat too many. Just 5 Peeps totals 160 calories. It will take 3200 steps or 1.6 miles of walking to burn these calories.

Large 7 oz. Chocolate Bunny
Chocolate is said to be good for you, but that doesn’t mean that you should over-do it. Just one Large 7 oz. Chocolate Bunny comes to 1050 calories. You will need to walk 10.5 miles or 21000 steps, putting you over your recommended 10,000 steps. This would be a great time to break out your Omron HJ-327T Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker and see how many steps you’re able to get in.

1 Cadbury Caramel Egg
Who can say no to a Cadbury Caramel Egg?  Just remember that only 1 Cadbury Caramel Egg comes to 190 calories. It will take 1.9 miles of walking or 3800 steps to burn just 1 egg.

1 Hard-Boiled Easter Egg
Easter eggs, of course, are synonymous with Easter. The colors are pretty, and eggs are actually good for you. However, you still want to be sure not to have too many. One egg comes with 76 calories. To burn the calories of one Easter Egg, it doesn’t require much walking. You will need to walk 0.76 miles, or 1520 steps.

1 Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Egg
Just 1 Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Egg comes to 100 calories. You will need to walk 1 mile or 2000 steps. This would be a great time to get your Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker Plus Smart Notifications and make the steps count towards your daily 10,000.

1 Spongebob Squarepants Hollow Egg
We all love Spongebob Squarepants. However, the Spongebob Squarepants Hollow Eggs may not love us back. Just 1 Spongebob Squarepants Hollow Egg has a whopping 300 calories, which will take 6,000 steps or 3 miles of walking to burn. I recommend getting a Fitbit Charge Wireless Activity Monitor and hitting the pavement, if this is your candy of choice.

Having an Easter snack will not kill you. However, too much of any of these candies are unhealthy and unflattering to your figure. Eat in moderation and enjoy. Happy Easter!

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg HuntIt’s 6:00am ET, and Tina is wide awake. She grabbed a healthy breakfast, consisting of oatmeal, an egg, a banana, and a nice refreshing glass of orange juice. She has on her Proviz Women’s High Visibility Running Shorts and Proviz Women’s High Visibility Running Long Sleeve Shirt, and her shoes are tied tight. After all, she’s getting ready to go for a hunt. She received word that HeartRateMonitorsUSA was having an Easter Egg Hunt and the winning egg contained a $200 Gift Certificate. The prize is in her sights, and she’s determined to win.

She’s getting her game plan ready. The hunt will last from Saturday March 28th, and expires March 31st at Midnight ET. This gives her a chance to take her time. She straps on her Garmin Vivoactive Smartwatch so she can keep track of her daily performance, allowing her to see her strengths and weaknesses. She partners that with her GoPro Hero4 Black Edition HD Action Camera with 32GB Ultra Memory Card, so she can watch the play back and see if there was anything missed. She really wants her name to be announced as the winner.

The hunt is on, and Tina starts off slow. She’s taking her time, combing through every page of HeartRateMonitorsUSA.com, looking for all three eggs. You heard that right, there are three eggs. In order for her to claim her $200 prize, she needs to locate at least one. She’s checking the Brands page, and she searched through the Running Shoes section as well. Tina is really in it for the win. She even checked the Shipping page and noticed that there is Free 2 Day Shipping on all orders over $100 and Free Overnight on all orders over $250. This kicked her search into over-drive.
