  • Mother's Day for the Outdoors Mom

    Posted on April 26, 2013 by olinselot

    Anna JarvisDid you know that the original founder of Mother’s Day was actually arrested for disturbing the peace? She was! Anna Jarvis and her sister were so upset that the holiday had become more about printed greeting cards and thoughtless gifts that they were arrested while campaigning against it. She said, “A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother – and then eat most of it yourself. A petty sentiment.”

    Mother’s day originated so that families would reunite after being divided during the Civil War. But since its establishment on May 9, 1905 I think most of us would agree with Anna. The mothers of the world deserve more than a generic card. Before we go any farther I should remind you . . .

    Mother’s day is May 12

    Let everyone else get their mother something from the gift card store. Getting something special for your mother or wife (from your kids of course) means you should find something she actually would enjoy. If yours is the outdoorsy type that likes to hike, camp, do gardening or anything else outside then we can help you with the following gift ideas.

    Honeycomb Sling PackThe Port & Company Honeycomb Sling Pack – This is absolutely affordable at less than $6. This sling pack is cute and comfortable with a built in audio pocket and an exit port for headphones. It’s sling design gives it a more feminine appeal compared to a standard backpack, but if a different women’s pack sounds like a better fit there are plenty of options such as a Cinch Pack, Hydration Pack, or even an Xcape Computer Backpack for those who can’t part with technology in the wild. There is also a general rule of thumb that women love bags, purses, and anything that helps them stay organized and look good at the same time.

    Sport Tek NRG Sport Tek NRG Fitness Capri - Active women love workout capris but most men are too nervous to pick them out as a gift. So let me make it easy for you. She will love these workout capris! These capris have a waistband pocket to keep her locker key secure. They are made for comfort and freedom of movement so she will not only feel good but she will look good. Comfortable fitting workout capris are a hot item for women who want to stay fit and healthy. These Sport Tek NRG Fitness Capris are a great Mother's Day gift idea for those of you with mom's who like to be active.

    Merino Wool SocksMerino Wool Socks – In fact, anything made out of Merino Wool will quickly become one of her favorites. Women are often colder than men. Biologically speaking, women generally have more constricted blood vessels. This puts their blood flow closer to the surface of the skin making them feel colder. The body handles this by redirecting the warm blood flow to the vital organs, leaving their hands and feet freezing! Merino wool is the highest quality and thinnest fiber of wool available. It feels just like cotton against your skin but has all the moisture wicking, and thermal insulating properties you expect from wool. Every time she puts on her Merino Wool Socks or Thermals she will feel warm and toasty and think of you.

  • What is CrossFit?

    Posted on March 16, 2013 by olinselot

    CrossFit GymEvery year a new fitness program, DVD box set, or piece of equipment seems to become the next trend. Those trends seem to always be wrapped around a highly marketed product or person. They explode on the scene and then fade into the closet like so many fads that have grown and died before them. But every so often one stands out. One approach emerges from the pack and stands the test of time. One system grows and holds its ground. CrossFit has climbed out of the crowd and secured its place in the fitness world. Why? Because it works! But What is Crossfit?

    CrossFit Push UpsTake one look at an avid CrossFit junkie and there is no denying how effective the system works. Cut abs, strong legs, chiseled biceps are what you see on the outside but just wait. Stick around long enough and you’ll see women snatching barbells over their heads and men doing vertical pushups against the wall like a gymnast. CrossFit feels like a chimera of mixed martial arts, power lifting, and Navy Seal training blended together with a fun and positive environment.

    CrossFit Clean and JerkOne of the biggest reasons why CrossFit has become so successful is the fantastic culture that exists among the members. Newcomers are welcomed, pushed to do more, and praised for all efforts. You walk into an immediate support group that guides your technique and expects greatness. You walk out feeling like a champion.

    Everyone in a CrossFit group will be supportive, but one thing they can’t do is tell you how to dress. Making sure you have the right apparel for the workout will improve your confidence and create a better environment for everyone around you. You will sweat! Count on it! Grabbing your typical cotton t-shirt is not the best option.

    Wearing a comfortable, breathable top like a Sport-Tek PosiCharge Mesh tank top is a great option. Champion offers a Double Dry fabric top that wicks your sweat away from your skin without sticking to your body. The same Double Dry fabric also comes in matching colors and styles for both women’s workout shorts and men’s athletic shorts too.
