Nearly 12 years ago I lost 30 pounds and I’ve managed to keep most of them off all these years.   But between turning 40 this past November and having lots of company between Thanksgiving and Christmas, those celebrations had me pack on a few pounds.  The thing is, I had NO motivation to do anything about them.  And I knew that put me in a bad place to add back another 25 more.

As much as I love food, I love technology too.  And I knew that with some technology motivation I would pick up and move and then shed those pounds that found their way to my thighs, hips and waistline.  I got myself a FitBit One, and loaded up some tunes on my HTC One since studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%.  How’s that for using technology to get motivated?

I’m sure I am quite the site walking around my neighborhood with my head bopping to Owl City, the latest movie soundtrack or my favorite worship music.  Oh and then there are those cords.  I probably look like I’m hooked up to a bunch of medical equipment.   There has to be a better way to listen to my play list than having headphone cords running through my sleeve or up my zipper, I probably look like I’m swatting flies if I start getting warm and start shedding my layers when I try and take my jacket off while getting tangled up in my headphone wires!

I recently found out there is!  yurbuds headphones are the headphone of choice for adding music to your workouts.  yurbuds are ergonomically designed for comfort and exceptional fit, while providing best-in-class audio quality and durability. 

These Stereo-Bluetooth® earphones lock in place comfortably so they never hurt and never fall out. The 15mm drivers provide the biggest sound available, providing the motivation you need to #neverstop. These sweat and water resistant earphones feature full track & call control with a wind-blocking microphone designed for call clarity. The athlete tested battery lasts up to 6 hours and provides visual and audible indicators when running low. This is sound with no strings attached.  What better reason to pump up the volume along with your workout?

Compatible with all Bluetooth® devices, yurbuds have a Dedicated Pairing Button for simple 1-touch pairing.  When you want to listen to music and work out these Wireless Earphones are where it’s at.  They sound amazing, don’t they?  (pun intended!)  I’ve been checking out Best Buy’s large selection of yurbuds here, I can’t wait to get a pair and work out with them.
