Happy Thursday, everyone! I was so excited when BabbleBoxx asked me if I would be interested in receiving their fall box that was all about fitness. I’m not a fitness buff by any stretch, but I have found that exercise helps me be a better person and live a healthier life, so it’s a big part of my daily rhythm. If you’ve been around for a little while, you might remember my Honolulu Marathon failure, my marathon redemption and some of my favorite YouTube workouts under 30 minutes. If you’re new, HELLO! My name is Kait and I’m a writer living in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’m so excited you made your way to my page for this special BabbleBoxx fitness unboxing post. As soon as I knew my BabbleBoxx was en route with new fitness goodies to test out, I repeatedly checked my mailbox to see if it had arrived. Needless to say, I was a little eager 😉 It finally got here earlier this week and I’m excited to share what I got, what I think and if I plan on continuing to use it. Let’s dive in…
BabbleBoxx Fall Into Fitness Unboxing
This was especially fun for me to open, because I don’t regularly subscribe to any boxes that I get to open monthly, or anything like that, so the opportunity to get something 1. complimentary and 2. featuring products that would probably fit into my life was a a really neat opportunity. In my box I received Tiger Balm: Active Muscle Spray, Aftershokz: Trekz Air Headphones, CELIUS Original Line: Sparkling Kiwi Guava and GO Comfort Insoles. Make sure you scroll all the way through as there are some discount codes if you are interested in any of the products for yourself!
Tiger Balm Active Muscle Spray – This is the product I was most excited to see in my box, because I have loved Tiger Balm since Dane introduced it to me several years ago. Simply put – Tiger Balm is the best for relieving aches and sore muscles after working out. This spray varietal isn’t one I’ve seen before, but the idea of not having to get the jelly all over my fingers is highly appealing! I am happy to report that I love, love, love this spray and will probably buy it again when this can runs out. It’s an aerosol, so it’s a strong, steady spray, which makes application simple.
AfterShokz – I was kind of intrigued when I saw these AfterShokz in my box, because I’ve only ever used my standard headphones that come with my iPhone or my Bose. I’m kind of in the “try anything at least once” category when it comes to headphones, so I was eager to test these out. To be really honest – I was afraid the neck piece was going to bounce around against my neck while working out, but surely if professional athletes use similar styles it can’t be that bad, right?! AfterShokz designed them to be really light, so right away I could tell there would be no “bouncing” as I previously thought, but getting used to the way they fit over my ear is going to take some getting used to and if you wear sunglasses to run, well – you can’t (at least not comfortably). That said, they are an exceptional option for weight lifting, boxing or other hands-on fitness regimen, as they are completely tangle-free! You can get $55 OFF HERE when using Discount Code: ‘BABBLE’ – Promotion ends November 1, 2018.
CELSIUS: Your Ultimate Fitness Partner® – I had never heard of this brand before my box arrived. CELSIUS’ proprietary MetaPlus blend, which includes green tea, ginger and guarana seed, accelerates metabolism, increasing your body’s ability to burn fat and calories. In short, drinking CELSIUS and then engaging in physical activity increases the rate at which you burn calories. It’s completely gluten free, non-GMO and contains no high fructose corn syrup, preservatives or aspartame. To be completely honest – these types of drinks aren’t something I consume, so I gave it to Dane to try. He said that the flavor was good, but is it something he would drink regularly? Probably not.
GO Comfort Insole – Go Comfort sent three pairs of insoles for me to test out – All Day Insoles, Work Insoles, and Athletic Insoles. I have talked before about my love of Happy Feet insoles in my running shoes, so I’m not a stranger to putting a little something extra in my shoes. With our trip to Iceland around the corner, I decided to outfit my hiking boots with Go Comfort to test them out. Just putting them on in my office, they feel great (I did trim them a little bit), but the real test will be next week when we are hiking. I’m excited to have them for extra support! You can get 20% OFF + FREE SHIPPING HERE using Discount Code ‘GOcomfortBB20’ – Promotion ends December 31, 2018.
Thank you so much for the team at BabbleBoxx for this fun opportunity to test out some new products + share them here! Have you tried any of these? What did you think?
