Product Review: SmartFlexx Foot Stretcher




written by runnergirl training

The SmartFlexx is a foot stretcher by FootSmart. It is helpful for plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis and also for stretching several other muscle groups. It is easy to use; you simply step on it!

I first used it in the morning before and after a run. Immediately, I felt a stretch in my calf, hamstring, and top of foot. Afterward, I noticed a lot of range of motion and less stiffness in those joints and muscles. Now I frequently use it after my workouts as part of my stretching routine. 

Here’s my recommendation on how to target stretching specific muscle groups. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds.

Hamstrings: Point toes up, push hips back & bend forward at hips

Foot muscles: Roll foot forward and backward on the device

Tibialis Anterior & top of foot muscles: Point toes down

Calf muscles: Bend knee and push heel down





Pros:
Easy to use
Portable
Effective
Keeps form correct
No skill required

Cons:
No lateral (side to side) stretching




The SmartFlexx stretcher is effective for increasing range of motion and decreasing muscle tightness. It is quick and easy to use for stretching. It also targets muscles which can be challenging to stretch. It assists you to keep correct stretching form. I highly recommend using the SmartFlexx stretcher as part of your health fitness routine!

Product Review: Bali Body Tanning Oils, Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 15 & BB Cream SPF 15

written by runnergirl training

Bali Body is an Australian based company who makes tanning oils and skin care products that are free of parabens and harsh chemicals. They are plant-derived, seed based oils full of vitamin E, rose hip oil and jojoba and much more! I love that their products are vegan and cruelty-free!
I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
