Product was given to me from Soleus in order to post my honest opinion.

The soleus (pronounced SOH-LEE-US) is a powerful muscle in the back part of the lower leg (the calf). It runs from just below the knee to the heel, and is involved in standing, walking and running. If not for its constant pull, the body would fall forward.


Soleus is all about runners! Their line of watches are designed to enhance your experience, whether you’re lacing up for your first run or already a seasoned marathoner. They have a variety of products to choose from, but I am going to focus on their GPS watches.

Heart Rate Monitors Make Exercise Simple

This is a sponsored post.


The basic function of a heart rate monitor is to measure one’s heart rate. The measurement can be in real time or recorded for later comparisons. It’s a popular devise used by those who take part in physical exercise and wish to monitor their health.



The first types of heart rate monitors were rather awkward. They had a monitoring box that used a set of electrodes that were attached to the individual’s chest. It made exercise cumbersome at best. In 1977 the first wireless model was introduced. This EKG heart rate monitor was developed for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski team. They used it during their high intensity training. It quickly caught on with other athletes. By the mid 1980’s, wireless heart rate monitors were being widely sold to anyone interested in staying on top of their health while performing physical activities.


Traditional wireless heart rate monitors consist of two pieces, a chest strap and a wrist receiver. Mobile phones are used in some instances. Today’s versions are made out of a conductive smart fabric that has microprocessors built in. These processors take in the EKG signal to read the heart rate.

Replace your Electrolytes and Stay Hydrated with Nuun Drink Tabs

Product was given to me order to post my honest opinion.


Nuun ~ Electrolyte Enhanced Drink Tabs

I’m trying to get in shape this year. Last year I started running and I really enjoyed it. Since we moved last summer I haven’t run as much but I have joined a gym. I need to figure out a combination of both in order to see results. When I workout at the gym I normally drink a whole bottle of water while I am doing the elliptical machine.


I noticed that while I was working out at the gym, I drank more water if I added some flavor to it such as a couple drops of lemon essential oil or Calm from Natural Vitality. I also noticed that the more I stay hydrated, the more energy I had and the farther and longer I was able to go.


Nuun Electrolyte Enhanced Drink Tabs were created to keep active people hydrated as they exerted energy without all the added sugar. Most sports drinks today are full of sugar and carbohydrates. Nuun started as more of active hydration for cyclists, runners and others in intense sports. Then they realized that everybody needs to stay hydrated so they reformulated and created two additional lines.
