Let’s face it… it’s probably one of the more common first world problems we have - keeping fit while at the same time staying connected. Whether it’s keeping motivated with your running Spotify playlist, not missing out on any phone calls that may come through or having the ability to capture a shot of the beach on your afternoon run.
When working out, how you carry and store your belongings can also become a chore… but you never know when you’ll need your smartphone cards, keys and, cash. For example, what if you wanted to grab a coffee on the way? On top of that, some of us also workout with our kids, or the family dog. The point is, going out hands-free is not always an option - or is it?
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
Committing to an exercise routine comes with more than just building in the habits of fitting it in your busy schedule, devoting time to it and then finding the motivation. Research shows wearing comfortable and stylish workout gear is already half the motivation to get into your workout. It’s also essential to find the right gear so that you can carry your essentials without being weighed down or having items bulging out of your activewear.
YOUR SPORTS BRA
It sounds like a pretty handy spot to store some cards and your phone while you’re running, right? Think again. The sweat produced from your body during exercise will find its way into the cracks of your phone and potentially damage the speaker and microphone units, amongst other parts. You also don’t want to squash the ladies while you’re trying to run with extra things getting in the way!
HOLDING IT IN YOUR HAND
Carrying your phone means that you’re one hand short and can’t work out freely. Similarly to a sports bra, whereby the sweat produced from your hand will mean your phone itself could become damaged. What’s worse is the likelihood of your phone slipping out of your hand due to the sweat and meeting it’s demise in pieces on the ground. Your exercise routine could end up being a lot more expensive than you had planned!
The armband keeps your phone and cards out of your sweaty hands, which is one positive. However having something around your arm and dragging down on you or chafing your skin as you try to reach your personal best does not result in a pleasant workout. Products need to support and aid us, rather than pull down on us or hinder our ability to perform better.
The old school bum bag has made many appearances of late, particularly in the fashion and activewear market - and we applaud its great intentions! However, the belted design causes too much bounce, pulls on our clothing and sometimes causes chafing at your waistline. Having to adjust your belted bum bag means more of a workout than needed - you deserve to be able to work out freely!
