Lebert Equalizer {Review & Giveaway}

LEBERT_FITNESS_LOGO_FINAL_websiteOne of the most common questions I get is “what is your favorite piece of in home equipment?”

unnamed-4And without fail I always say my Lebert Equalizer Bars…and…Lebert Buddy System…and…Lebert Stretch Straps!
Are you familiar with these? If you answered no then you absolutely need to be introduced!LFEB

Not that long ago I was searching for a piece of in-home workout equipment that was effective yet challenging, fun and easy to store. Very quickly, I found myself on the Lebert Fitness website…and I was hooked! So, imagine excitement when I was given Pink Equalizer Bar, the buddy system and the stretching straps for Marc Lebert (founder of Lebert Fitness) to try out and tell you guys all about! EEK! I’m still as thrilled as I was the day it all arrived!

Each one of these pieces are amazing! Let me break it down and tell you about each one!

The Stretch Straps:

The Stretch Straps are safe and will help you not overdo your stretches. The Strap is designed to improve the crucial overall elements of your stretching regime. These fantastic little straps help you get awesome deep streches! They perfect to use during your starter and finisher workouts! I also love using my Stretch Straps for difficult yoga poses! Along with the Straps you get a instructional DVD and a Stretch Strap Poster with 12 different stretches! Since my days are often busy and hectic I love the poster!

My favorite Stretches are the:

  • Lying Butterfly
  • Hip Knot
  • Lying Double Leg Hamstring
  • Lying Double Adductor
  • Lying Quadriep

These five stretches have helped me immensely with chronic pain from a childhood hip and knee injury.  The Strap is excellent to use after a run or hardcore leg day!

The Buddy System:

I’ve mentioned many times in the past that one of mine and my husbands favorite things to do together is workout! We love working out together but it’s hard to find something that we can do together!  The Buddy System is just what we have been looking for! The Buddy System allows 2 people to work together and create dynamic and variable resistance with hundreds of exercise! We are able to have a full hard-core excellent work out together! Along with the Buddy System you get an instructional DVD

Here some of our favorite Buddy System Workouts:

The Equalizer Bars:

Oh be still my heart these bars are awesome! I’m not going to lie I am not good at pull-ups, I never have been and I truly never thought I would be I just don’t my body just doesn’t do it. But with the equalizer bars I can get all the same affects that my husband getting with his pull-up bar with the equalizer bars in fact he now prefers the equalizer over his pull-up bar now! With the equalizer bars you can do awesome elevated push-ups! Get a killer ab workout! Work your arms like crazy! And the best part the bars take up a tiny bit of room!

I really love the equalizer bars and the entire Lebert fitness equipment line can easily thrown in the back of my car and take it to someone’s house and let them see what it can do! One of my BIG 2015 goals is to become an in-home personal trainer! Let me tell you the Lebert system will be going to every single clients house guaranteed!

My Favorite Equalizer Workouts:

Lebert also has some awesome workout DVDs!

Homeschool in the Woods Knights Lap Pak {Review & Giveaway}

I was provided with this Lap Pak from Homeschool in the Woods in exchange for my honest review and thoughts. See my full disclosure policy.

HomeSchoolintheWoods-LOGO

Remember last month when I did a Homeschool in the Woods Lap Pak review and giveaway? {Although the giveaway is over you can read the review here} Ever since then I have been absolutely in love with Homeschool in the Woods and they’re a Lap Pak!

I’m beyond thrilled that Jaron {from Homeschool in the Woods} and I have teamed up again!! To bring you the KNIGHTS Lap Pak! The awesome family at Homeschool in the Woods graciously sent me the Knights Lap Pak! Thank you!

IMG_5690

The Kinights Lap Pak is a bit different from the 20th Century in America Pak because it is geared to the younger age: kindergarten through second-grade, where as the 20th Century Lap Pak was for 3rd to 8th grade!

What does this mean? The booklet is a little bit smaller than the 20th Century which is great for my kindergartners, and there is more coloring, cutting and gluing, again perfect for my little ones!

So let’s jump in! I want to tell you all about the Knights Lap Pak!

IMG_5688

The booklet is 24 pages and absolutely wonderful!  It is written from the perspective of one of the Knights thus making it really come alive for the kids! Within the booklet the sections are broken into small chunks perfect for kindergarten through third grade!

IMG_5708

Some of the sections included in the Knights Lap Pak:

  • Dawn of the Knights
  • What is the “Knight” ?
  • Becoming a Kight
  • Tournaments
  • A Knights Armor
  • The Code of Chivalry

And so much more!

IMG_5706 IMG_5707 IMG_5705Something that I love about this Lap Pak is that there was very little prep time for me! I just went ahead and printed out all the activities for all three children (I included my fourth grade son as well! He LOVED it and had a great time!)

Once again Homeschool in the Woods went all out with their beautiful hand drawn illustrations! Like the other Lap Pak this is a very flexible program! We can do what we want when we want to do it. There were some days when we would only do 1 or 2 sections, where as two days ago we ended up doing 4 sections!

The Lap Pak is perfect for those low-key when just hanging out at home no coops or outings! It is perfect days when you have sick little ones too! Now that we’re coming into that season where he want to stay more indoors this study is absolutely perfect!

IMG_5698

How long do it take to complete?

We decided to do this Lap Pak over a two-week period. We did not work on the study all 14 days however we did it most days and did little bits and pieces at a time! It could easily be broken down into a month study or longer if that is what you prefer.

Like I mentioned above this Lap Pak requires quite a bit of cutting, coloring and gluing which my kids loved, even though my middle son is not big on coloring he had a great time with it and really enjoyed the coloring…he even asked to do more!{thank you so much Homeschool in the Woods!}

IMG_5695

During the course of the study, while the kids were working on their activities, I would read some books that we got from the library (we pretty much got any book we can find about Knights!) For my older son we checked out some of the Magic Treehouse books about Knights for him! They were great and he loved them.

IMG_5717

I absolutely adore this Lap Pak and my children love it so much at this is definitely going to be one that we do every single year and go over again and again throughout this year!

I’m not gonna let you go home empty-handed! Remember above when I mentioned that I’ve partnered again with  Homeschool in the Woods? Well guess what I am again giving away a Homeschool in the Woods Lap Pak of your choice! How cool is that!

Get it HERE!
