It’s no secret that I’m trying to lose weight. Or that I struggle with motivation. Or that I’m doing it the old-fashioned way: by changing my diet and adding in exercise. So far, exercise has been the easiest part of the battle. I’ll whine and complain, but I usually drag my butt to the gym five days a week, working out for at least an hour. And when I’m there, I’m fully invested in bettering myself and my body.
And looking good while doing it.
PlanetGear.com is a website that offers huge discounts on fitness gear, apparel, and travel destinations. All sales are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, start at 8:00am PST, and last up to 72 hours. They offer up to 70% off on all their discounts and the sales are pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.
Spinning fanatic as I am (even though, uhhhh, I haven’t gone in maybe 2 weeks? Whoops?), I have my eye on this pair of TYR Sport Women’s Kinetic Spin Sports, valued at $46, selling for just $22. Yes. I need these in my life. Or maybe a TYR Sport Women’s Kinetic T-Back Tank to go along with it, valued at $42, and selling for $22. Yes, please!
And from now until the end of October, PlanetGear.com is donating $1 for every new member and “like” they receive on Facebook to the Breast Cancer Fund. The Breast Cancer Fund “works to connect the dots between breast cancer and exposures to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environments.” They want to educate the public on scientific evidence and truths about chemicals and radiation to help prevent cancer and sustain our health.
The most fun part of all of this? PlanetGear.com has agreed to host a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive this pretty awesome training ball. I am a huge fan of training balls for exercise because they’re a great way to do add something NEW to your workout. They have the ability of taking a workout to a higher intensity (ever do push-ups on a training ball? Not. Easy.) or lower intensity, which is especially helpful if you have back or knee problems. Plus, they’re just plain fun to work out on! I feel like a kid when I use a training ball! The even cooler thing is that this ball has printed exercises located around the spine so you have built-in ways to use this to target specific muscles in the body.
