The stylish, limited edition, Martone Cycling Co. commuter bikes celebrate the rights of our citizens to vote, and the power voting represents (especially since not too long ago, many American citizens ie. African Americans and women) did not have that right. Just in time for the presidential election and the upcoming inauguration, these red, white and blue bikes and the folks behind this three-yr-old cycling company encourage you to “pedal to the polls”.

“Personally I’ve been overcome by the excitement of the 2016 presidential election, and I could think of no better way to channel that passion than into the design of this capsule collection,” said Martone Cycling founder and designer, Lorenzo Martone. “When so much is at stake for our nation, the power of voting and what that freedom means resonates even more deeply.”

Hula Hoop Inches off your Waist with the FXP Fitness Hula Hoop

As we enjoyed a day filled with the abundance and overindulgence of food we’re sure to be eating for the next few days (leftovers anyone), we’re sure many of you may not want to readily hit your respective gyms the day after Thanksgiving, hell most of us can barely move, so we’re proposing an alternate and transitional form of exercise…..Fitness Hooping (First Lady Michelle Obama is a fan). You can enjoy this fun exercise as your ongoing workout, or try it when you don’t feel like going to the gym. The best thing about this workout, it’s a lot of fun because it involves something we all enjoyed as children…..with a slight twist. Say hello to the FXP Fitness Hula Hoop, a hula hoop that comes in six sections, which clips together for easy and quick storage and assembly.

Sponsored Post: Keep Your Active Lifestyle w/ JustGoGirl!

Seeing as we’re in full Olympic Games mode, this is the perfect time to talk about something no one actually talks about, Exercise-Induced Urine Leakage in Female Athletes or Athletic Leaks. While performing vigorous, stress-induced, high-impact, or strenuous activities and workouts, some elite female athletes (which includes teens to older women) suffer athletic leaks, a condition most think may be due to abdominal pressure.

justgogirl-wearers

Sometimes experiencing this uncontrollable condition can dissuade these athletes or very active women from enjoying their very active lifestyle but thanks to a new creation by Brooke Solis, the answer to athletes leaks has been found with JustGoGirl!.

jgg-package_white justgogirl

A few of us got the chance to meet with and get first-hand knowledge from the JustGoGirl! Founder and CEO, a fitness-obsessed mom of five herself, she found that after the birth of her first child, she leaked when she went running and although she tried several products, nothing gave her the comfort and protection she desired, so she just created her own.

How amazing is the JustGoGirl! Pad? It is 1.5 cm (a little over 1/2 inch thin) in size, absorbs up to 140 ml (a little over 1/2 cup of fluid), is shaped to fit a woman’s form and is undetectable under all your clothing (you can even wear it with a thong). JustGoGirl! is the perfect combination – it’s as thin as a pantyliner and provides as much absorption as those bulky incontinence pads – giving you the best of both worlds. So ladies, get back to running 10 miles, gymnastics, yoga or doing your Insanity workouts. Leave the extra pants and bulky pads at home and be rest assured you won’t ever again be embarrassed by athletic leakage.

I had a chance to try out JustGoGirl during the crazy snowstorm we had during Fashion Week. Running from show to show, you barely have time to stop…even to use the restroom plus with the exertion of navigating through mountain-high snow dunes, you can really get quite a workout. Thanks to this neither issue stopped me from my very busy day
