Soothe Aching Muscles Between Workouts with the Flexx Sports Muscle Roller Stick

p style=”text-align: center;”>flexx_stick

If you are an active runner, engage in cardio or sports, you are familiar with muscle pain. Proper stretching and massage are important to maintaining a stress free body. Professional massages aren’t always practical and personal massage chairs are expensive.

The Flexx Sports Muscle Roller Stick is simple, affordable and it works! We have been testing the above for the past couple of weeks and love how simple it is to use and easy it is to store. Simply use both hands to grip at each end of the roller stick and the textured plastic beads in the center move and roll to help alleviate tough knots and aching muscles. It is especially effective on the upper and lower back, quads and calf muscles. Not only does it help with pain but it helps increase circulation and prevents the dreaded lactic acid build-up.

At only 9 oz. in weight and just over 18 inches, the Flexx Sports Muscle Roller Stick is perfect for home, office, gym and travel. It has a steel rod core for durability and comes backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

At under $25, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for active family and friends!

Wish List Wednesdays: Easily Track Weight Loss with Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Scale

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

weight_gurus_scale_reviewLosing weight is hard work and meeting that goal should be celebrated! Weight Gurus have created digital scales that easily sync with your smartphone so you can track your goals quickly and easily.

Simply set up a user profile on the digital scale with the included guide. You can have up to 8 users. Well worth your time if there are multiple people that will be using the scale in your household. The scale has thick tempered glass that is smooth and sturdy to stand on. It’s also super easy to clean too!

After setup, lightly step on the scale. The scale will greet you will a huge hello on the extra-large (4.3″), extra-bright back lit display. Then step on the scale evenly with both feet. Shortly after calculating your weight, the scale will display a digital barcode on the screen.

This is where the free app comes in. Download the free app here (Apple/Android). You can use the app to setup a quick user profile via smartphone or tablet. You will then be able to take a picture of the bar code on the scale within the app using your smartphone/tablet (similar to scanning a 2d barcode for more info. on a product, etc.). The barcode picture quickly and accurately syncs your weight to the app and helps you to stay accountable for continuous weight management, no cords required! You can setup the scale to display your current weight or display in weight lost or gained. A unique feature if you have a specific weight loss (or gain) goal in mind to get healthy!

You can also use this scale without a smartphone/tablet. At $29.99, this is a beautiful, modern scale that is near the price point of many traditional scales and worth the cost even if you don’t use the added features. It comes in black, white, silver and a fun chevron print. The batteries needed to run this scale are also included. A huge plus to be able to use the scale right out of the box!

Want more options? Upgrade to the $40 model for detailed tracking including BIA Analysis for Body Fat, Lean Mass, Water Weight and Bone Mass.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
