6 Must-Have Fitness Items to Achieve the Perfect Summer Body


We all want to look great for the summer. Here are a few items you can keep at home or take on the road to help you achieve your fitness goals.


StrongBoard Balance is the evolution of balance training – four compression springs that never allow users to stabilize, no matter how advanced they are. Invented by LA trainer Mike Curry, who is an accomplished fitness trainer for over 15 years in the area, StrongBoard Balance is being utilized by many of his athlete and celebrity clients. It was also one of the featured products on last year’s Spike TV show, “Sweat Inc.,” hosted by Jillian Michaels and is officially endorsed by UFC’s Uriah Hall.


The TheraBand CLX resistance band links a continuous series of resistance loops, creating an ultra-portable, intuitive tool that can quickly be adjusted to perform a seemingly endless array of exercises.  The resistance supercharges existing exercises and introduces new possibilities, many of which work the upper and lower body in concert for maximum impact and the design interfaces more comfortably with the human body.


The Moji Foot PRO travel massager features large stainless steel omni-directional massage spheres for targeting heel, toe and plantar fasciitis pain. It’s similar to a tennis or golf ball in that it increases circulation and loosens up muscles while on-the-go. It’s got a slip-resistant base and can also be tossed in the freezer for an ICE-COLD foot rub.


The JBL Under Armour (UA) Headphones Wireless are a fitness enthusiast’s best side-kick. Highlights of the UA Headphones Wireless include Twistlock technology – guaranteed never to fall out, Flexsoft comfort fit, sweat proof with IPX 5 rating, up to 8 hours of playback time, a 12-month MapMyFitness Premium membership and of course, JBL signature sound.


The Banjees Armband is the perfect accessory for traveling. It is the only running/workout Armband that doesn’t have a Velcro closure. It also is the lightest Armband on the market and fits any size phone with a case.


“Stand Up Abs” is high quality, portable, effective and for all fitness levels – the best NEW way to train abs and core. No need for dumbbells, kettlebells or even a door as the resistance comes from the performance bands and you are the anchor. It is also great for targeting the lower body:  butt, hips, and thighs.  Stand Up Abs is your go-to, “must have”, “throw in the bag” piece of equipment. Can be used anytime, anywhere!
