The Tory Burch Fitbit Collection is Now Available

Tory Burch Fitbit Fret Pendant Necklace

Back when I received my Fitbit Force, one of you mentioned that Tory Burch was designing a collection of Fitbit accessories, and that day has come! The Tory Burch Fitbit Collection is now available!

My favorite item from the collection is the Fret Pendant Necklace ($175), within which there is room to hold the Fitbit Flex Tracker (an additional $99.95). This is easiest the prettiest and most inconspicuous ways I’ve seen of wearing a fitness tracker! It is expected to ship by August 31, 2014.

Tory Burch for Fitbit Hinged Bracelet

If you prefer your fitness tracker to be on your wrist, there’s the equally gorgeous Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Hinged Bracelet ($195). This bracelet appears to be so popular that it’s currently not even available for pre-order! Keep checking – I’m sure this will get restocked!

Tory Burch for Fitbit Silicone Printed Bracelet

Finally there’s the Tory Burch for Fitbit Silicone Printed Bracelets ($38 each) in pink or blue… both of which also appear to be sold out already. These bracelets also work with the Fitbit Flex.

I’m really surprised that the Tory Burch Fitbit Collection just launched this morning and most of the items have sold out. Maybe that should be a sign to Fitbit that more designer collaborations and/or just prettier looking trackers are wanted! Regardless, I would be REALLY surprised if they don’t issue more stock from this collection. Just be sure to keep an eye on the Tory Burch website so you can be first when and if they do!

Friday Fitness: 10 Minute Fitness – Slim & Sculpt Pilates

10 Minute Solution: Slim & Sculpt Pilates

 

I have an entire collection of workout DVDs, most of which I have tried once and then never go back to again. However, one of my all-time favorite workout DVDs is 10 Minute Solution – Slim & Sculpt Pilates.

I have had this DVD for close to four years now and I continue to do it regularly. Well, kind of.

I don’t actually follow the entire DVD or do all of the workouts for the most part. The DVD comes packed with five different 10 minute workouts, including:

  • Upper Body Pilates
  • Lower Body Pilates
  • Pilates for Abs
  • Total Body Pilates
  • Pilates for Flexibility

The one section of this DVD that I follow regularly is the last one, Pilates for Flexibility. The hardest part about getting older is that I feel so stiff all the time, especially now that I’m working out regularly. Pilates for Flexibility is a very gentle 10 minute workout that will have you stretching, twisting, and bending. You won’t be huffing and puffing after this 10 minutes. Far from it, in fact. I tend to use this workout as a cool down after my runs because it helps me stretch away some of the aches and pains.

When I originally picked up this DVD it was because I wanted something to help me stretch a little more, and help increase my flexibility a bit, and I think the workout completely serves that purpose. It’s not very threatening or very challenging, but it will help lead you through a great stretching routine!

10 Minute Solution – Slim & Sculpt Pilates comes with packaged with the fitness band that you’ll need to complete the segments and sells for $10.26 at Amazon.

Fitness Friday: Good Things Come to Those Who Work Hard

Good Things Come to Those Who Work Hard

One of my favorite bloggers – Oh Joy – posted the image above to her blog the other day and while she wasn’t referring to fitness at the time, I think this image is completely appropriate for all aspects of life.

If you’ve pledged to make 2014 the year to work on your fitness, I hope you’re still on the horse, or perhaps you could take some time this weekend to get back in the groove! Believe me when I say I know it’s hard. I spend literally the entire day before a workout building myself up to it.

Personally, I’ve been attempting to walk 10,000+ steps per day (which I keep track of with my Fitbit Force – see the recall notice), and this week I began Week 3 of Couch to 5K. Let me tell you – I hate running, but I keep going and I feel so accomplished when it’s over! I’ve been in a ton of pain though due to years of inactivity, and am just now getting to the point I don’t feel like an invalid the day after jogging a measly 9 minutes.

My goals for next week are to drink more water and start doing some mild exercise/stretching on my C25K off days.

Keep working – I know good things are in store for all of us!

Happy Weekend!

New Year, New You: The Color Run Looks Like the Most Fun 5k Ever

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWsfHC-0d6A&version=3&hl=en_USI am in no way, shape, or form a runner. Yet, this promo for The Color Run certainly makes me want to run a 5k!

The Color Run

Incredible, right?

Here’s a little blurb about how The Color Run works:

“Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color. 1k is yellow, 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink, and the 5k finish is a “Color Extravaganza.” As the runners/walkers hit the KILOMETER COLOR ZONE, they will be blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. The color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust. All products are 100% natural and safe.”

The Color Run will take place in NYC on August 25. Registration is not yet open.

Head here to keep up-to-date on registration information.
