Good day, our awesome listeners!
We’re back with a slightly different twist on fitness-related info for you today, but first, let’s talk training recaps.
I’ll go first (ladies first, right?).
Well, I did it. I quite literally got back on the bike – our Peloton cycle that is. I took some new workout clothes from *Fabletics for a spin in fact! After being a member of the clothing retailer for a while, I can enthusiastically endorse them, especially when you opt to become a member, which gets you some seriously sweet deals off the apparel line.

Nick, meanwhile, has been busy applying the learnings he received at a recent TRX training course. He’s been adding the suspension training exercises into workouts and he’s been so happy with what he’s learned, he wanted to share some tips with those who are interested.
So for those looking to add TRX training to their repertoire, here are six items to AVOID when using the suspension trainer from TRX:
- Starting wrong
- Stopping your set
- Sagging your body
- Slacking of the bands
- Sawing the bands back and forth
- Scrapping the bands against your body
Be sure any trainer who you’re looking to work with, knows these basics. Better yet, check out Tampa Strength YouTube channel for TRX exercise video demonstrations to learn the moves yourself.
Now, we embrace our inner gadget-loving geek (or at least I do) to talk about the latest health and fitness technology to come out of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
I knew about this tradeshow from years back when I used to work the event for clients, but it’s since become a hugely attended event for general consumers. Much of the tech they display at CES is what you’ll see appearing in stores this year!
This year, health/wellness and fitness technology made a big statement.
We broke down our top picks (from the more than 3,900 exhibiting companies) of products into four categories:
- Self care:
- Foreo UFO – skincare assistant that uses cryo & heat therapy
- Olfinity system – at home air quality monitor and aromatherapy system that meets WHO standards
- Halo Nueroscience Sport Headphones – headphones that emit an electronic signal that helps you execute exercises more efficiently
- Garmin Forerunner 645 – added expanded music storage to fitness watch operations
- Philips Smart Sleep – 1st wearable solution to not only monitor, but improve deep sleep quality
- 360 Smart Bed – bed that tracks sleep and adjusts to maximize your sleep
- Health monitor:
- Lenovo Vital Motorola Moto Mod – accurate blood pressure monitor you can add to the back of your cell phone
