Kushyfoot Product Review

The Details Kushyfoot bills their product as “the first brand in women’s hosiery to incorporate the ancient healing art of Reflexology.” To do that, they add a 3-dimensional padding – or what they call “massaging sole” – to their hosiery which cushions the feet. The Kushyfoot® sole helps relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet, thereby helping to relieve stress and fatigue throughout the entire body. Their sport socks also come with arch support in the form of a band that is a bit tighter. Reflexology is based on the ancient healing principle that everything is connected. By creating socks, hose and sandals that integrate a massaging cushion designed by Reflexology experts, Kushyfoot claims their hosiery will relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet—and even stress and fatigue throughout the entire body! On their site, there is a section where you can click on the diagram of a foot and it will tell you the reflexology relation of that spot to your foot and how Kushysocks will help. They offer a wide variety of hosiery, from foot covers to be worn with stylish shoes, knee highs, tights, and many sock options including athletic, casual, and even yoga! They also carry toe pads for a minimal coverage while still getting support, and Flats To Go®, which are lightweight and convenient for on-the-go wear, while still being supportive. Their 2014 Fall collection has fun new styles and trendy colors, with more than 20 foot and toe cover looks. I received Kushyfoot’s Lace Foot Covers, Yoga Socks, Sport Foot Covers, and Athletic Socks to try for this review.   The Experience I...

We Rocked the ROC Race!

Last Saturday, I ran my first ever obstacle race! The ROC Race in Chicago, billed as “the craziest 5k of your life!” is the original game show-inspired obstacle run! It’s a 3-mile fun run filled with larger than life obstacle challenges! I hosted a giveaway for two free entries on my website, and fun surprise, one of the winners was my client Toni! So she and I, along with my 17 year old son and Toni’s best friend Chris, met up and ROC’d the ROC Race! The race was just as fun as I hoped it would be! The obstacles varied in difficulty, which made it fun for everyone. Some were easy and just for fun – like giant inflatable slides and a giant bounce house! Others challenged your strength – like the Get It Up (and Over) climbing wall, and the Gorilla bars. Guys. GUYS. Guess what? I did all the Gorilla Bars! I couldn’t do hand over hand, but I didn’t drop – I completed the entire sequence! And then get this – dropped backwards into the pit anyhow. OMG. How annoying! I lost my balance on my dismount. But there was a guy who was coaching me the whole time and that was super cool – “You’ve got great concentration! Keep going! You’re almost there. Steady pace, don’t lose momentum…” That REALLY helped because my grip was giving out but because of his encouragement, I kept at it! When I fell back into the pit, he yelled, “Great job! It counts!” WOO! Then there were obstacles that required balance, agility and coordination – like the Tight...

Wake Me UP, So I Can Go-Go – Vega Sport Energizer Review

Disclosure: I received Vega Sport Sugar-Free Energizer in exchange for my honest review as part of the Fuel Your Better campaign by Vega Sport and Fit Approach. All opinions are my own. As part of the Vega Sport Fuel Your Better campaign, I was given the opportunity to try out a sugar-free energizer from Vega Sport, a pre-workout dietary supplement designed to help me “get in the zone” to work out.
