Eurotard Dancewear

Do you have a gymnast or dancer? If so, then you need to become acquainted with Eurotard Dancewear. Oh please let me introduce you!!

Eurotard Dancewear is an online retailer that specializes in the most beautiful gymnastics and dance wear that you can imagine! Seriously head over to their website and have a look!

Before we get into the leotards I wanted to share a little about Eurotard Dancewear:

Eurotard Dancewear is an internationally recognized brand dedicated to bringing happiness, confidence and individual style to dancers around the globe. We believe that how a dancer feels is just as important as what a dancer wears. This concept is what inspires us to consistently design leotards, non-run tights, separates and accessories that are comfortable, durable and uniquely fashionable; so dancers can feel as strong and beautiful as they look.
The quality of our products is unparalleled; our collections of dance, praise and gym wear are constructed using only the softest fabrics, richest colors and strongest materials. Careful attention to detail goes into each and every one of our garments, from the double surged seams and quick dry linings to the distinctive fashion designs.
Whether you are just now discovering Eurotard Dancewear or have been a loyal customer for years, we thank you for your interest and continued support.
Sincerely,
The Eurotard Dancewear Team

They also offer more than just leotards:

and more!

Of course having a little gymnast I was drawn to every single gymnastics leotard, but if you have a dancer, then you need to check out this gorgeous lace back leo!

45879c BLK back-105

Ok now on to the leos…

We were so excited to receive two of Eurotard Dancewear stunning gymnastics leotards in Little Peacock {in pink} and Disco Leopard.

This Little Peacock leo is SO shiny and sparkly.g7

Gabbi and I both said “oh my goodness” when we opened the package. This leo is so gorgeous catches the light like you wouldn’t believe. Gabbi loves this leo SO MUCH more than all her other “glam” leos.

Recently she wore this leo to practice she was swarmed! While on the floor other coaches kept going over to look at it and ask where it was from. Her coach told me later that she finally had to tell the other coaches they had to wait until after practice to ask questions about the leotard because she kept getting interrupted!! I mean look at it, can you blame them?!

g10
This leo is different from all the other embellished and multi piece leos that Gabbi has. Usually she does not want to wear leos with any kind of embellishments especially multi fabric piece leos because the stitching is scratchy due to the edge of the two fabrics being sewn together or the glue ends up leaving a rough spot on the inside of the leo. I totally get that, it would feel weird especially when it’s on the chest and a seen together design. Now when it comes to this Little Peacock leo there is a BIG difference, Eurotard  has a unique way of sewing the fabric together so that it lays flush with the rest of the leotard! Yay no rough edges!

Now on to the Disco Leopard leo!

g12

Gabbi LOVES this leopard leo so much! I’m honestly not sure what she likes better, that is leopard print? Maybe it’s the bright colors? OR maybe it’s because it is SO sparkly!! There is so much adorableness to this leo it’s too hard to pick one reason to love it!


Gabbi wore this leo to practice the other night and as soon as we walked in the door coaches and parents where admiring it! One of the main comment was “I love opened back!” Seriously it is adorable.

This leo glitters in the light and shines bright in the sun! Gabbi couldn’t be more thrilled with it!

g11

Not only is it very striking but it’s tagless, if you have a daughter who loves leos than you get why this is such a huge deal! Gabbi really dislikes tags so this was a HUGE hit with her!

g17

Both of these leotards are beautifully made, the quality is impeccable and they have a very stunning sleek fit! We will for sure be long time customers of Eurotard Dancewear and their stunning leos!

These leotards are worth every penny and I would suggest to anyone who is a gymnast or has a gymnast to check out Eurotard!

I had promised some gymnastic practice photos but unfortunately the photos from practices didn’t come out as good as I had planned due to weather and lighting at the academy…blah! I really wanted some cool in “action” photos but with the insane daily snow and over cast sky it wasn’t happening!

NOW for the AWESOMENESS you have been waiting for! 

I have partnered with the lovely staff at Mia at Eurotard Dancewear to do a giveaway!!! Oh but there is more! Heres the really the FANTASTIC part…we are giving away not ONE, not TWO but THREE  Holographic Waves Leotards!!! Yep that’s right 3 winners! My favorite part? The winner gets to pick the color cherry or teal and size {child-adult}! Gabbi doesn’t have this leo but let me tell you she would LOVE to have it. It’s metallic and so stunning! You guys are so lucky!!

To enter click the image below! Good Luck! *I do check each entry so please no fake or duplicated accounts.

This giveaway will run from March 7th until March 22th!! Three winners will be randomly selected  on March 23rd and contacted shortly after. U.S Residents  **Winners have 5 days to respond, if not a new winner will be selected. 

Good Luck!

dg2

“Bright, cheerful and it glows in the dark.  Perfect for the gym or for a party!”

Gabbi received the Glow Tank Leo from Gym Digs while she was at school, and was ecstatic when she arrived home and saw it waiting for her! She could not wait to put it on, get her mat out and start working out in it! Of course she had to give it a test run outside…while it was snowing and freezing cold!

The quality of the Glow Tank leotard is fantastic it is a stretchy and comfortable… and it glows in the dark how cool is that!

itglows

Since it arrived Gabbi has been pretty much glued to it…or in it!

Every time she wears it, she gets tons of compliments and comments! The day it arrived we ran to the store, she was wearing leggings over it and we were stopped by a mom asking where she could get the leo for her daughter, when she found out that it was a Glow in the Dark leo she ordered right then and there from her phone! Awesome huh?

gd5

Not only did Gabbi get this adorable leotard but she also got the coolest ice pack! Anyone who has a kiddo in gymnastics knows aches and pains comes with the territory!

gd15

Gym Digs is so much more than just a “Leotard Shop” they have set themselves apart from so many other online gymnastics retailers by offering a whole range of boy’s wear! While I do not have a son in gymnastics, I have quite a few friends who have sons in gymnastics, they’ve said that it can be difficult finding the right clothes for their gymnast sons. I think it’s fantastic that Gym Digs sees the need and has boy’s wear readily available.

But Gym Digs doesn’t stop there they also offer:

gd10Another fun item that Gym Digs offers is doll leos!! Gabbi really wants the Confetti Crush Leo with two matching doll leos for her American Girls! Adding a doll leo is just $6!!!

Gym Digs prices are awesome and they have a wide range of sizes but if your gymnast falls between sizes, no problem Gym Digs will make a custom size leotard to fit you or your gymnast like a glove for an additional $6!! Gabbi’s Glow Tank Leo is a custom size to fit her small yet long frame and it of course fits AMAZING!

Ok, my raving about Gym Digs wouldn’t be complete without to telling you about their beautiful competition leotards!

These are hands-down some of the most gorgeous competition leotards I have seen, and the best part? They cost $34 to $115!!! How awesome is that?

Flip Flop Leos Showcase

10380486_883520768340394_6798743550605970213_o

ff1When I hear the word “Gymnastics” I think of the usual suspects…beam, bars, vault, floor…and of course LEOTARDS! I think most gymnasts would agree that leotards are one of the best parts of being a gymnast. Leotards have the fantastic and unique ability to show a gymnasts personality! Today we {my daughter G and I} are thrilled to be sharing Flip Flop Leos!
If you haven’t heard of Flip Flop Leos you are truly missing out on something amazing!

Flip Flops can be found on eBay {visit the store HERE!} and super sweet Debbie {the owner} has 30 years experience making Leotards! Here’s a bit of her story 🙂

When my daughter, Dana, was six years old she began gymnastics in a small recreational program, and that began a mother/daughter journey that continues to this day.  As she progressed to a gymnastics team and began working out over 20 hours a week I wanted to encourage her without being a “pushy” parent.  I decided that one of the ways I could do this was to provide a variety of gymnastics workout leotards so that she would feel pretty and special every day.  The cost of leotards available in catalogs (No internet then! Can you imagine??)  and pro shops drove me to get out my sewing machine and start sewing!  Dana competed all-around at the highest levels all the way through high school, eventually earning a full gymnastics scholarship to University of Denver.

By that time I had sewn hundreds of leotards for Dana, her friends, and the pro shop at her gym.  I learned that the leotards needed to be fashionable and FUN!  Ebay was just an online yard sale almost 13 years ago when I started selling on Ebay.  Now, hundreds of thousands of leotards later I’m still selling.  I have over 29,623 unique feedbacks with 100% positive rating.  I usually have over 200 styles listed at any one time.  I make matching warm-up leotards for teams, outfit many gym-acro teams, and even provide leotards for some pro shops.  I ship free domestically within 24 hours of any purchase.

Debbie is more than just a leotard maker she is a gymnastics mom which I love! And, let me tell you she is the sweetest business owner I have had the privilege to work with {seriously!}

ff4When you look at Flip Flop Leos the first thing that stands out is the ridiculous cuteness of them! Debbie has so many {SO MANY} different patterns that you are sure to find the perfect one for your gymnasts personality! After receiving our Flip Flop Leos there are a some things that I would love to tell you about Flip Flop Leos.

The first one I think any mama to a little girl will appreciate, the crotch is wider than all the other leos that G has. To be honest there are a few leo that G has that she is only allowed to wear at home because the crotch it is just too narrow…like inappropriately narrow…why? That is not the case at all with Flip Flop Leos! Debbie definitely knows what she’s doing, her leotards have the perfect size, not too wide and not too narrow. You may be thinking but if it’s wider won’t it hurt or leave pressure marks? G had gymnastics practice the day her Donut Leo arrived and she wore it for about 4 hours and there were no pressure marks, she told me it was her most comfortable leotard! That’s big because usually by the time practice is over she ready to change.

ff6The next thing that I love is the leotard cut! The straps are not too thin, the arm holes are not too tight or too loose (either can be a very uncomfortable issue) the leg is not cut high (I LOVE this) I love that her undies are 100% covered in her Flip Flop Leos!!!

My most favorite part about Flip Flop leos? Oh my goodness guys they fit G PERFECTLY. She has a longer torso but is very string bean skinny, this makes finding a leotard that fits fitted somewhat tricky. Some leotards fit awesome throughout her torso but are so baggy everywhere else, some fit great throughout her body but pull on her shoulder because the torso is too short. Ugh! I don’t know how Debbie does it but Flip Flop Leo are perfection.
In fact as I write this G is wearing her leo playing video games with her brothers…it’s just that comfortable!

ff2The cuteness of the Flip Flop Leos can not be denied! G’s donut leo arrived literally 1 hour before we needed to leave for gymnastics practice. Nearly every staff member and coach commented on how “adorable” her leo was! We got a lot of “where did you get her leotard?”

Flip Flop Leos has a special everyday save $5 when you spend $60!

Flip Flop Leos are all under $30 starting a $6.99 (specific sizes and styles) making Flip Flop Leos some of the most affordable leos out there with the LARGEST selection on the market! Flip Flop Leos also has INSANLY fast shipping!

We love the donut and hot air ballon leos so much that we already have a list of more we plan to get for little G! These are our top 5 favorite as of today 🙂

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:

IMG_5756

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:

IMG_5755

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:

IMG_5757

The Equalizer Bars:

IMG_5727

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!

Onnit Battle Rope Review!

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. See my full disclosure policy.

ONNIT

OBRBIf you’ve been following me for any length of time then you know my love for fitness and workouts! Recently Onnit sent me a Royal Battle Rope {50ft. -1.5 in. thick}

to workout with! From the first time my husband and I used it we were in love with the Onnit Battle Rope! If you have ever done a High-intensity interval training {HIIT} workout then you know that 30 seconds isn’t a quick as it seems. Add a Battle Rope into the mix and whoa…30 seconds is taken to an entirely different level, talk about a hardcore, body transforming workout!

Never heard of “Battle Ropes”? That’s ok, Battle Rope workouts are a fairly new craze {you might remember seeing contestants on NBC’s Biggest Loser using them}

What’s a Battle Rope?

A battle rope is simply a length Onnit Battle Ropes are 40 -50 feet in length and between 1.5 – 2 inches in diameter and weighing up to about 30lbs.

How to use a Battle Rope:

Onnit Battle Ropes are 40 and 50 ft. There are a few ways to use Battle Ropes:OBRAN

  • Battle Rope {Common use}: Attached/wrap the center of the rope around a secure anchor point {like a basketball pole for example} Then stretch out the rope and hold on the handles and you are good to go!ONBR
  • With a Partner: You and your partner each hold on to one handle, stretch rope out {this will result in you and your partner being 50ft apart} and begin workout!
  • Pull Through: Leave the rope coiled up with one handle visible, pull until you reach the other end of the rope

Battle ropes exercises are then done by lifting the end of the rope and making whipping motions {this look like waves} or dragging the ropes back and forth {this looks like slithering snakes} around. The goal is to maintain these movements for as long as possible…it’s hard…but it IS a lot of fun! Check out the Onnit video below!

Benefits of a Battle Rope Workout:

Battle Ropes are great for all fitness levels and they are considered low impact, so really anyone can use them! Because Battle Rope training involves non-stop full body training, you engage everything – arms, legs and core for an amazing calorie torching, fat burning sweaty workout!ONBRA

What I LOVE about Onnit:

  • Fast Workouts {15-20 minute workouts will kick your butt!}
  • Workout with a Partner {My husband and I LOVE workout together! Onnit Battle Ropes take it to a whole new level!}
  • Great Cardio Workout
  • Mix Up your Workouts…NEVER get Board Again!
  • Torch TONS of Calories FAST {300-500 calories per HALF HOUR!!! WHOA!}
  • Build Muscle And Burn Fat Simultaneously
  • Take Battle Ropes ANYWHERE {the biggest ropes are only about 30 lbs.}
  • Awesome Strength Training
  • Build Amazing Endurance

ONBRBWhen the Onnit Royal Battle Rope arrived I was beyond excited! Not only is this rope just amazing…it’s really pretty {I love purple}

If you can manage to get your hands on some battle ropes here’s an example of the kind of battle ropes workout you could put yourself through. This workout uses the principles of interval training for producing maximum fat loss. Each interval below is performed 15 seconds on and 15 seconds off. Adjust the intervals to suit your needs as appropriate.

Some of our favorite Battle Rope workouts:

ONBRC

  • Double waves: keep a wave in the rope for as long as possible
  • Double rope slams: lift the rope high and slam it down to create as big a wave as possible
  • Moguls: jump side to side to create horizontal waves
  • Jump slams:  jump up and down to wave and slam
  • Crossovers: horizontal waves while crossing arms

My personal Success! 

In the past few weeks that I have been using my battle rope, I have gained strength, endurance, and more energy! I have started seeing definition I haven’t seen in a really long time. I feel less tired during the day following a battle rope workout {I can DEFINITELY tell when I have missed a battle rope day!} My husband and I use the battle rope in our home {downstairs where we have a large room!} We also take it everywhere…local schools, tennis courts and basketball courts…We basically have a gym anywhere we go! My husband has increase strength and endurance as well as giving his upper body an extra workout, which he loves.

We would both recommend the Onnit Battle Rope to anyone who wants to gain stamina, do a fun and intense workout, or just simply looking to switch things up in their daily workout!

Buy it HERE!

Special Thank You to Jennifer at Onnit for providing me with this amazing Battle Rope!!

Bottle|Band Review and GIVEAWAY!

 IMG_4000

I so excited to share Bottle|Band with you today! First things first:

 

What is Bottle|Band?

logo

Its a cool silicone band that goes around your water bottle giving it a handle and making it easier to carry! Yay! No more dropping my water bottle!
 
My husband and I almost never run with water bottles because it can feel like too much “baggage”, honestly its really annoying to hold a water bottle while running or hiking! I’m always worried about dropping it! Then at home or at the gym I can’t tell you how many times I have dropped my water bottle on the treadmill…Please tell me that I’m not the only one! 🙂 But, not taking/drinking water is so not good for us! Staying hydrated is so important when it comes to taking care of your body. A little Hydration 101: When you drink water you flush out nasty toxins that are in your body…but there are even more benefits…including metabolism boost, weightless,  beautiful and healthier skin  and most importantly {in my opinion} a healthier heart. When we are working out or just simply being active we NEED to stay hydrated, the problem? There are situations when drinking water isn’t easy…like running or when you are in a workout groove at the gym or at home. However skipping the water a pressing on can lead to dehydration, and the only thing dehydration is good for is making you tired with no energy and possibly sick…NO one wants that…and it can be dangerous!

After chatting with the guys at Bottle|Bands about trying out the Bottle|Bands, I have to admit I was pretty excited! Ooh maybe I would actually take a water bottle on my runs and hikes, maybe I wouldn’t be so worried about dropping it!

When I got my bands in the mail my hubby {who is a hardcore runner} was so stoked and immediately wanted to give them a try, sooooo we did! we were both VERY impressed! The Bottle|Band stayed secure the whole time and was really comfortable to use! Yay! We didn’t have to worry about dropping bottles!

BBBottle|Bands and Kids! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these for my kiddos! They are perfect! Our family goes on walks/jogs every night! Especially in the summer we go through a LOT of water…but whose carrying it you ask? Yep! Mom and Dad! Not anymore!  The kids can just loop there water bottle with a Bottle|Band over their handlebar and we are good to go! Mom and Dad love it and so do the kids!

What I love about Bottle| Band:

  • Its one-size-fits all!
  • It’s very comfortable to use
  • Because of the handle you can hang your bottle on your treadmill, a door knob, or at the equipment at the gym!
  • You can customize your very own band! How cool would it be to get matching Bottle| Band for your kiddos team! Walking or running in a charity event? Get matching Bottle| Band for the whole team!
  • Running in a race? BottleBand is perfect for disposable bottle because once you finished you water you can throw your bottle away and put the BottleBand on your wrist and keep on running unencumbered!
  • Bottle| Band costs about $6!!!
  • Bottle| Band comes in a bunch of colors, with different sayings! Check em’ out!IMG_4035
How to use Bottle| Band:
 

 
I don’t have any CONS at all! The Bottle|Bands fit all the bottle I tried including our ninja smoothy cups {my hubby and I have smoothies in them every morning and they are perfect to take on morning hikes}
IMG_4030
 
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors or at the Gym {home gym included!} The Bottle|Band makes carrying and hanging your water bottle super easy!

YAY!  I recommend rinsing it or even washing it right after using it that way it’s all ready to go for next time! psst… the kids have even used them while playing with play dough but I don’t fret because they are durable and so easy to clean!
FunbFunBites are so easy to use…as Easy as 1, 2, 3!FB2

1 – Place FunBites cutter on top of food.  Remove popper top and set to the side.

2 – Grab cutter handles on both sides, press down firmly and rock 5-6 times to cut through the food.

3 – Lift the cutter up, insert popper top and pop out the bite-sized pieces!
