My New Favorite Fitness Accessories!

Ever have to stop during a workout to put your hair up? 
Are you tired of your bangs falling into your face?

Being a SUPER curly haired girl, my hair can be a bit tough to manage during my workouts. I have been using bobby pins lately, but I seem to lose more than I can stand. 

My friend Julie Condry from Fit Chic Headbands sent me a few fitness headbands to wear during my workouts to see how it felt. 
Julie started her fitness journey back in 2007 after her son was diagnosed with Autism. It was her way of dealing and coping with the stress. She was searching for a headband that would not only be functional, but would also look great. After coming up with a design, her mother sewed a few for her. People were constantly asking her where she got it and suddenly Julie had the idea to start marketing them to stores. This could be a way to earn extra money to pay for the expensive speech and occupational therapy that Cole needed and allow her the flexibility to stay home with her boys.

I was sent 3 of her amazing headbands and a Fit Belt, as shown below.
First, off the headbands were great quality-nothing cheaply made or thrown together. The headbands are made of a soft, stretchy fabric that actually did NOT give me a headache! I absolutely loved them because they did stay in place during my workout while most bands tend to fall or slip off completely.
Other than being absolutely cute and comfy to wear, the headbands did their job and kept my curls out of my face so I could workout in peace! I wore one to the grocery store yesterday and even got a compliment-so they are not JUST for the gym, ladies!

On to the Fit Belt! This thing is very similar to the Flip Belt that you see on some people, and I actually own a Flip Belt too, BUT I will tell you something-I liked THIS belt a lot better than my Flip Belt. First off, the patterns to choose from are adorable. Second of all, it clips in the back. Third of all, you can adjust the comfort easily. 
Why use a Fit Belt? Well, are you wanting to go on an outdoor jog and hate holding onto your keys? This will be your best friend.
Also, if you are at the gym and need something to hold your phone as your iPod plays and you're listening to music, this will be your best friend.
Same thing with credit cards, IDs, gym passes-ETC! It holds EVERYTHING!

I will actually be taking my belt to Disney with me next month.
