Many of us made fitness goals for the year.  As January rolls to a frigid end, it’s a good time to do a quick check-in on how those resolutions are coming.  While it’s only been a little over three weeks, evaluating your plans now gives you the chance to make the changes necessary to get back on track if you’ve slipped a little.

This cold weather hasn’t really helped.  Who wants to – or even can – get outside when the thermometer reads below zero?  Fortunately Bubbles keeps my heart rate up with all the dancing and jumping around she likes us to do together.

Pair the Shine Fitness Monitor with yurbuds to #GetMotivated @BestBuyWolf

It’s been a few months since I started using my Shine fitness monitor to keep track of my activities.  While it’s not really designed to track all that dancing, it does at least track my steps so I have an idea of if I’m moving enough, or not.  On the days I need a bit more activity to reach my goal, I do have the option of using our treadmill.

The only “problem” with a treadmill is how incredibly boring it is to be on one.  It really doesn’t do much in the get motivated department.  But that’s where music comes in!

#GetMotivated with yurbuds Earphones @BestBuyWolf

Studies have shown that music can increase both the intensity and the duration of a workout by 15%!  That in and of itself is reason enough to plug in.  Unfortunately, it can be hard to find a pair of earphones that don’t either fall out every 10 seconds (anyone else find that to be totally annoying?) and that don’t make your ears hurt.

yurbuds Wireless Sport Earphones

An Ironman triathlete and 24-time marathoner founded yurbuds earphones a few years ago to address this problem.  Now you can cut the cords with the Limited Edition Wireless Sport Earphones.  Their Twist-lock Technology and FlexSoft Comfort Fit partner to lock the earphones in place comfortably.

yurbuds Wireless Earphones Can Help You #GetMotivated @BestBuyWolf

The Limited Edition Wireless earphones debuted at CES in Las Vegas this year, and are the first ever Stereo-Bluetooth® wireless earphones guaranteed to never hurt and never fall out.  They use a Smart Battery that powers a week’s worth of workouts, and provide audio and visual indicators to let you know when they are running low.  With features like being sweat- and water-resistant you can see why yurbuds are the #1 selling sport earphone company!

I have two special offers to share with you so you can #GetMotivated this year, too.  First, there is a 20% off yurbuds coupon you can print and use at Best Buy.  If you prefer use promo code yurbuds20off to shop online.  Secondly, get a $5 Best Buy gift card when you buy any health and fitness wearable or smart watch when you print this coupon and purchase it from a Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store.

    • That is always my gripe with headphones, too, Melanie – I hate when they make my ears sore or fall out! You’d think if we can send people to space, we could create non-painful earphones, right? 😉

  8. I love my yurbuds. They are the first set of earbuds that are actually comfortable. Though now I want the wireless ones!
