Dragon Door Neuro-Grips v2.0

Type of Product: 
Exercise Equipment
Summary
Rating: 
5
Pros: 
  • Improved design
  • Infinite training possibilities
  • Extremely portable
  • Extremely sturdy
Cons: 
  • Intermediate to advanced users ONLY
  • Requires appropriate training surface
  • Requires GOOD JUDGEMENT

I've been a huge fan of Neuro-Grips ever since encountering them on the photoshoot for Jon Bruney's Neuro-Mass.  While versions of these have existed for some time out there in the world, until now people have usually had to make them or have a welder friend construct them.  Now you can simply buy them from Dragon Door.  The new ones are made of steel and are improved in many ways from the first version (which I also have a pair of those).  First off, in a rare case of win-win the new construction method is not only superior, but also results in a lower price!  The new Neuro-Grips ar

Skoop A-Game "Chocofresh" Superfood Powder

Type of Product: 
Supplements
Summary
Rating: 
5
Pros: 
  • Organic ingredients
  • Mild taste (not like some out there! OOF!)
  • Good with just water, fantastic with other things
  • Detailed labeling
  • Not too sweet
  • Low sugar!
  • Ingredient list reads like an organic food delivery wishlist of the stars
  • NO soy lecitin (those who have allergies to soy lecithin or are avoiding all soy will be happy to know it just uses sunflower lecithin!)
Cons: 
  • Pricey, but good value. If it was too inexpensive, I'd be suspicious
  • Contains stevia, if you are sensitive, steer clear (I'm not, but wanted you to know)
  • Says "Chocofresh" doesn't taste too chocolate-y (does taste good though)

**Disclosure** I was sent free product for review, and lucky for them I really like it.... because you know I only review things I like. They must have known this too, since it took me a while to get around to this review, and they've been checking in on me wondering if all is well (totally understandable)!  All is VERY well and I love Healthy Skoop A-Game read below to hear why:

  • Delicious
  • Organic
  • Raw
  • Healthy Fats - including the rare omega 7 from macadamias!
  • Nutritionally dense
  • Optimal ingredients
Cons: 
  • Pricey

Onnit Macadamia Cacao Cherry Trilogy Nut Butter Raw and OrganicOnnit has created yet another addictive snack, and this one is admittely over the top.   If you have self-control issues, put the spoon away and make sure to open this in the presence of anyone you wish to share it with.   I didn't take any chances, because I wanted a second opinion--and waited until one of my local foodie friends had time to check it out too before I opened the jar!   We tried it with very thin slices of organic apple, but I later found out that it's also good just spoone

  • Comfortable
  • Unique style
  • Great fabric
  • Flattering
Cons: 
  • Shelf-bra only
  • May inspire INTENSE envy from friends, enemies, passersby
After connecting with Affitnity's owner, Zeudy on Twitter we met up for coffee (by a coincidence we seem to be in a similar enough area of town!)   She's incredibly cool and we had a great time talking about our favorite workouts and who inspires us in fitness.   Zeudy's designs are EVERYWHERE--worn by fitness models in all market segments.  You'll see them all over the place including everything from mainstream fitness magazines to extreme bodybuilding.  Uber controversial "fit mom" was even wearing a shorts and crop top set from Affitnity.   Once you see the clothing in person you'll understand how
