“Not everyone does yoga. Doesn’t this put a cap on the yoga mat market?” Most people think that you have to be a yoga expert to use a yoga mat. But the reality is that there are so many additional uses for yoga mats. For instance, I use them for stretching. Every morning, I start my day by doing a series of stretches and warm-ups. Whether I‘m dropping to my knees to enjoy the added padding of the mat or I’m jogging on the spot, the yoga mat provides a comfortable spot for me to tune-up for the day. Yoga mats are also terrific for sit-ups, crunches, push-ups, planking, and all other ground-based exercises. I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a “fanny pack.” Are they really coming back into style? Not only are fanny packs back in style according to fashion magazines and catwalks across Europe, they’re trending in all age groups. Not allowed to wear your backpack on the roller coaster at your favourite amusement park? Well, you’re allowed to wear a “fanny pack,” which is the perfect place to store your phone, some money, and your car keys. Plus, the zippered pocket will prevent your valuables from ending-up scattered all over the park. Or how about for concerts? “Put your arms in the air 6 JUNE • 17 wellth.xyz and wave ‘em round like ya just don’t care.” Kind of hard to accomplish that with your Michael Kors purse around your shoulder. And if you’re still not sold, then consider the fact that even the name of the product has changed. While you may still be embarrassed to rock the “fanny pack,” it’s a lot cooler to be rocking a “running belt!” Help me understand why anyone would want to use a glass water bottle at the gym. Won’t they just shatter if dropped? Surely you’ve heard and read many a story about the perils of chemicals in plastic water bottles?! It seems that we’re discovering a potentially hazardous chemical on a daily basis, whether that’s BPA or some other newfound acronym. But switching to a glass water bottle may well alleviate some of those fears. Glass water bottles provide a safe means of keeping your water fresh, without the fear of contamination of chemicals in the plastic. Additionally, they are easier to clean than plastic bottles and stay crystal clear much longer than their plastic counterparts. But they break, right? Well, that’s not always true. Recent advancements in design are resulting in sturdier and more resilient glass options. Tight silicone wraps as seen on the WB9099 and the WB9480 are adding a level protection hitherto unknown to the category. As a result we’re seeing more and more glass water bottles making their way into yoga studios and gyms everywhere. Health and safety should go hand-in-hand. Do you have any health-related products that are aimed at creating a safe work out environment? Life’s busy! For a growing number of people, the only time to work out is late at night – when it’s normally dark outside. And for those that chose to run, bicycle, walk, or jog that means navigating unlit streets and dark paths. Fortunately, there are a bevy of healthrelated products that address these concerns. Using reflective material is a terrific way to become more visible when running near or on a road. Many suppliers are adding reflective piping to wellness products for that exact reason. Take the BT3811 bicycle repair kit for instance. Its reflective strips are built directly into the case, and are specifically designed to reflect the glare of oncoming headlights. But other suppliers are taking it a step further by incorporating flashing LED lights right into their wellness products. Both the FL6986 shoe clip and the N9198 running belt have built-in flashing LED lights, designed to let the world know where you are. So – yes – health and safety should always go hand-in-hand.
