As a full time blogger or anyone that sits at a desk all day, it is very easy to get BBS (blogger butt syndrome) or CBS (computer butt syndrome) and forget the most important and greenest thing you can do is to keep in shape and be healthy. I also came to the realization that as I have aged, my strength is gone, I mean how heavy is a computer?
So when I tried out the Eco Friendly Resistance Cord from Gaiam, I found I could accomplish several goals, get aerobic and strength exercises, support a green and eco friendly company in an economical and green way, save time and space with a small piece of exercise equipment.
The resistance cords come in 3 strengths, I used the medium (green) and in my weakened condition, it is enough. They feature cork handles and renewable non-toxic materials. I got the kit which has a DVD starring personal trainer Charles Shand to teach me how to use the resistance cords properly. If you are just starting out the DVD gives you a 25 minute quick workout of which you can work up a sweat.
What I like best is the resistance cords take up no room, you can travel with them, if you need a break during your day, plug the DVD in the computer (I have no TV) and can workout in an efficient way.
So if you are looking for Fathers Day Gifts or for that matter any gift for yourself and others I highly recommend the Eco Resistance Cord from Gaiam, its small, it works and if you order more than $99.00 from Gaiam here is a coupon code $.99 Shipping on Any Order Over $75.
