Glad to see you out At the Fence today! We are visiting Chicago again and it is chilly, damp, and windy out. Empower Fitness sent me this great item to Get Out and Get Active. It is a Weighted Walking Vest. You can adjust the weight from 4-8 lbs. It is really quite comfortable to wear whether you are walking, jogging, or just working around the house. I am starting to walk and my 24 year old daughter walks every morning. She has also enjoyed using my new vest. To begin with, although not very important, I like the color! The weighted vest is not so large as to be an inconvenience. It was designed with simplicity. There is a built in weight of 4 lbs. and then there are an additional 4 lbs. that you can add as desired. There are pockets that velcro shut to hold the extra weights.
This is the back view. There is a reflective strip for safety purposes.
Here is the view from the front. There are 4 small reflective strips. The vest has a belt that clips in the front to hold the vest in place, although my daughter prefers not to use this and the vest still stays in place.
The weights (1 lb. each), can be placed in the pockets as needed. There are two in the center of the back, and one on each side in the front.
Just the added weight will help you to become more physically fit. The vest helps you to burn more calories in less time.
Are you thinking about starting an exercise program? Then one of these vests would be great for you. Put it on and start walking! Adjust the weight to suit your needs. Want a light day? Remove the weights. Want a little more of a workout, stick the extra weights in. The vest is designed to fit sizes 2-16, but I will tell you that I am larger than that and wear it with the belt unhooked. There is no exercise easier than walking. Pick a good time of day for you to start and stick with it. Have an mp3 player with some music, map out a route and then stick to it. I have heard it said, if you can continue something for 30 days it will become a habit. So don't give up! You can order the vest through the website for $39.99 plus tax and shipping. Or you could enter to try to win one.
