5 Workouts To Do if You Sit All Day

This past year, I have been busy working on completing some main fitness goals, two of which included to become an ACE Certified Personal Trainer as well as to become an RRCA Certified Running Coach. I wanted to be certified in both of these fields because it is something I truly enjoy. Helping others achieve their fitness goals, whether is to run their first race or marathon, live a healthy/active life, or tighten their bodies in time for the Summer, are some of my goals for 2016. As a person that has a 9 to 5 desk job, I have noticed that sitting for the most part of my day, has weakened some of my major muscles, these includes my glutes, hamstrings, abs/core, and back. Not many of us train during the winter time, but we should continue to maintain some sort of fitness to keep our bodies fit and healthy.

At Armpocket We Think Green.

We have thought this way since we founded the company in 2006. It was at this time that we made a conscious decision to use Eco-friendly fabrics and materials -- and it was our mission to create an Eco-friendly and durable product.

Our society has unfortunately become accepting of purchasing cheap products that can be easily replaced. But gradually there has been a movement of companies paying attention to what is better for the environment...hence the need for making products that last, and products that can be repaired by the owner.

What does it mean to succeed?

When I think of Armpocket, I am reminded that I have the #freedom2 Succeed. I recently had the honor to be a celebrity escort for the Night of Superstars event for underprivileged and disabled kids. Prior to this event, I viewed success as being successful in sports, or major things in life. However, taking part in this night completely changed my view on what it means to truly succeed.

How to prepare/train for a race

The main question I get asked all the time is what is it I do to train for my Races. Depending on what type of Race you are doing; weather it is an Obstacle Course Race, Half Marathon, or a 5K, the key to remember is how you prepare your training plan doesn't change no matter what the distance is. If it is your first Race that is a different story, and something I will cover in my next Blog Post, but over the years I have learned that the key to any race is to prepare for the course more than the distance. For example, when I was preparing for The OCR World Championships in Ohio I had to focus my training on climbing more than speed as the course was very technical. Knowing what type of terrain you will be running is key to adjust your training plan to fit the Race at hand. Below are some tips and tricks on just how to prepare leading into race week.

How To Stay in the Zone

I often get asked a lot of questions after running a marathon. Questions such as Did you win? How long was the race? Did you finish in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place? What happens when you have to use the bathroom? But one question that has me thinking every time is, what do you think about, so you can keep on running and not call it quits in the middle of the race. How do you stay focused and in the zone? For every marathon I have a different experience and yes I often hit the wall, where I want to just call it quits. But somehow I never do or haven't. I guess I have it ingrained in me that what I start I must finish, unless I'm injured or seriously hurt, but as long as my legs are working, I will keep on moving.

Comfort, Protection, Durability iPhone 6s Armband

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are finally here! By all accounts, this is the best and most advanced iPhone ever built. It has an upgraded camera, better sound, Retina display, and it's loaded with a whole host of new features. This new iPhone is being touted as one of the toughest Apple has ever built, but it is still delicate. So it’s not surprising that the most common accessory sold for the new iPhone 6s is a protective case. When you buy a new phone, it’s almost automatic that you purchase a case to go with it. The reason behind this is because the iPhone is more of an investment rather than just a smartphone. And you always want to protect your investment.

Ambassador Inspiration & Motivation - Arie Rich

The dictionary defines motivation as "the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. The general desire or willingness of someone to do something." What is my motivation? I find it difficult to answer this question. In trying to define my motivation I find myself looking back to my past, my childhood, my present and my future. I believe my motivation is found in many different things and places. Sounds weird I know, but let me explain.

Ambassador Amazing Opportunity

Hello runners and fellow exercise enthusiast. I would like to share briefly on an opportunity that recently opened itself up to me. Last month I was selected to become a member of the Amputee Blade Runners team. Initially I saw this as an opportunity to meet other amputees and also to gain knowledge about how to take steps to achieving more as an amputee athlete. Little did I know, that when I flew to Nashville for a week that my outlook on life as well as my future goals would change.
