Get your workout in while you work – and charge your cell phone too! I recently read about these new WeBikes, developed by a Flemish government minister who had trouble squeezing exercise into her busy day. She soon realized that her bike desk could generate power and become a charging station as well. The WeBikes, part of the WeWatt company, are mainly in public spaces such as airports, libraries and hotels in Europe but the company is planning to expand into more offices. According to this article, you can find these charging bike desks at the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam and the train station in Lyon. What a cool way to create green energy, get some work done and also get a workout in! I can’t wait to see these come to the US.
GU Energy ran a promotion in May, asking their fans to vote for cola or root beer as their new flavor. Well, last week the results were announced and root beer is the new GU Energy gel flavor! I’ve actually never tried GU gels because they seem pretty thick but I’m interested in trying out this flavor (as well as the salted watermelon which I can’t find anywhere). This could be a good change-up from other too fruity and the too sweet energy gel flavors.
Sale! C9 by Champion brand available at Target now has a much larger line-up of activewear, including these awesome seamless t-shirts. I love how light and comfortable the fabric is, with the right amount of stretch. It’s definitely not the same quality as Lululemon or Nike but you can’t beat the price ($18) for a flattering, comfortable, 4-way stretching, moisture-wicking tee. Plus the colors are great!
