I feel like it’s been ages since we’ve made a Black Friday Guide, but in the meantime and between an insane amount of exciting projects, I’ve managed to get involved with some really cool new companies with products I LOVE and am happy to tell you all about –
Some of these deals are on a time frame though so there will be countdown timers on this page to help you with that!
BIG Specials from Dragon Door of course, but with a couple of real surprises this year:
Sale is ALREADY kicking and going until Dec. 2nd but don’t wait – inventory is limited on much of the sale goodies – and yes the discounts stack in some cases.
- MEGA big deal: HardstyleFit Level One Online Kettlebell Certification is $100 off so you only pay $99 to get this nifty online course (which will earn you ACE CECs and NASM CEUs plus 50% off any in person RKC or HKC workshop…) Upon completion of the online portion you then have the option to submit technique test videos and get valuable coaching (and your HardstyleFit Certification) from a Master RKC Instructor! That’s a heck of a deal for $99… get it while you can.
- Dragon Door Site-wide 40% Off sale with code BFCM2019 That means kettlebells, books, ebooks, Neuro-Grips, and more! Click through and load up that cart. While a lot of the KB are low in stock, the following sizes are good to go…for now:
I’m SO impressed with Grosche.ca (they’re Canadian, but still offer free shipping very easily with orders over $50). Not only are the products top notch, they’re very involved with the Safe Water Project. Your purchases from Grosche help provide people with sustainable water purification–and fund education on safe water and sanitation. While the otherwise SITEWIDE 40% off sale for Black Friday does not apply to the flagship Oasis bottle, you can still get 10% off of this incredible bottle (goes with me EVERYWHERE) while providing a family with 50 days of clean, safe water with my link or special code: GIRYAGIRLOASIS at checkout. They also have an extensive “gifts that give back” guide.

Ultra High End Favorite Fré Skincare is having an insane, but very short lived sale – if you’re active and want to keep your skin happy (or have a lady friend who feels this way) definitely check out this sale. The exact deal below will display properly when the sale goes live!
I LOVE Fré Skincare – especially the post-workout (the “Detox Me” Mask is fantastic) and shower items. While nearly all of the products are admittedly on the “spendy” side, I feel like they live up to their pricing and value.That’s right… 50% off of EVERYTHING For the first 5,000 sales after the special begins. GO GO GO!
Ultra high end performance yoga and fitness wear that’s made in the USA! Their Black Friday offer is serious business and starts on Nov. 29th! Their Gratitude Gift Set is valued at $300 and is free with all purchases over $150 with code GRATITUDE at KiraGrace.com Offer valid 11/29 – 12/1
Some of you know about this, some of you don’t… I have actually basically stopped cooking at the end of June. I do still occasionally make the recipes and other things you see on this site, but for 8 meals a week, I let FACTOR75 do the work for me. And it’s been great! I’ve been trying as many of the different paleo, low carb, and keto meals as possible, so if you have any questions about any of them in specific, I can actually answer with a high degree of accuracy. I have a lot more to say about Factor75 but will save that for a future blog post – the short answer is I LOVE IT! Save $40 off of your first order.
The brisket ropa vieja is worth it alone… yummmm Calorie counts for the various meals range from about 450-800+ so I order a variety to keep up with my wonky lifestyle. #entrepreneurlife amirite? While I’m not yet in the “personal chef” tax bracket, Factor75 might actually be more convenient. The packaging is recyclable, the portions are ample, and they genuinely taste good! I look forward to lunch and dinner during the week – especially since I can heat one up and keep going! The compact form-factor means when I put my meal in the office fridge I’ll never be THAT PERSON in the office taking up too much of the fridge… All Factor75 meals are grass fed, pasture raised, antibiotic and hormone free, no refined sugars, gluten-free, soy-free, preservative free, non-gmo. You can even schedule a 30 minute call with their registered dietician (recommended, these folks are SMART!!!!!!) Everything I want… nothing I don’t! And it’s crazy easy.
Tokelau MCT Coffee
Another awesome low-carb/keto find… these packets are just fantastic for travel–the photo here is from mixing it up in Delta Skyclub–and long days (see goofy hashtag in the Factor75 paragraph). I always have two Mighty Morning Blend packets in my backpack and make sure to pack them in my suitcase too. Hotel room coffee? No thank you. All you need is hot water and a stir stick and you’re good to go. I gave a packet to my neighbor the other day to take on his next boating trip after finding out that he’s been brewing up Bulletproof coffee. Keep your eyes peeled for a review of their new “Freedom Blend” coffee that has MCT oil along with collagen protein. That’s about to become another of my travel staples… I wish I had had that on my recent trip to Atlanta – I’d been doing so much work even AFTER the eight hour mastermind sessions that I chose to sleep more rather than book it to the lobby for the breakfast buffet… the Tokelau MCT Coffee Mighty Morning Blend kept me going with 70 calories of pure power until I could get a protein bar halfway to lunch. The Freedom Blend might have helped me skip the protein bar… HMMM! Will need to do some testing on that. 🙂 If the sale is still going on (try it NOW) then when you add two boxes of any of their coffee packets, you’ll get 50% off of the second box!
Really awesome, durable and fun workout equipment. I have their surprisingly comfortable weight vest and holy moly does it add some challenge to push-ups, stair climbs (already plotting a return of the infamous “parking garage small group workouts”). Pretty much EVERYTHING They have is on sale for Black Friday – including their innovative new “needs no anchor” twist on the battling rope!
Here’s my review of one of their awesome weight vests. Also a huge fan of their sandbells and steelbells – they’re really accessible ways to add a lot of challenge and fun to group fitness and small group classes. The sturdy but soft construction makes them extremely useful and popular with general populations mixed-level classes. The really heavy sandbells are also super squirrely to contend with – and thus a whole lot of fun!
Smith And Vandiver
Natural and luxurious skincare, personal care–including those MUCH needed bath soaking supplies for after tough workouts–and hyper premium laundry supplies too! All are free from parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, harsh or harmful chemical ingredients. They’re also cruelty free and NEVER tested on animals. They even go so far as to make sure the packging and ingredients are biodegradable. Take 25% Off All Products with Free Shipping on Orders over $50 with code THANKS(2019) Valid 11/29 – 12/2
Kettle and Fire Bone Broth
I always try to keep cartons of bone broth handy – it might sound weird, but it’s a really nice snack to have on hand, especially if it’s cold outside. While all high quality bone broths can be used for this, the Kettle and Fire ones are seasoned and ready to go right out of the box. So instead of concocting things like taking chicken bone broth and adding miso paste etc. at the office and looking like a weirdo (actually they already know I’m a weirdo) I can just crack open one of these containers and heat it up in a mug or saucepan. After staying in an extended stay place a few years ago and reall liking their odd all purpose saucepan, I immediately came home and bought a Norpro “4th burner” pot after really liking it for heating soup and making hot beverages of all kinds. At home it’s my go-to for heating bone broth for quick snacks. It’s excellent for heating up the contents of a carton of Kettle and Fire Bone Broth.
Last but certainly not least…
This is my new hosting company of choice and the one that’s bringing you this site right now. Their Black Friday Sale is BANANAS CRAZY. So much so that I’ve been strongly encouraging (and helping setup) IT consulting clients on it as fast as humanly possible this past week. It’s such a great place to have a worry free WordPress site, automated backups every 24 hours, CDN, production, staging, and development environments and top notch tech support. They’ve been there for me more times than I care to admit. Seriously though, for the past year, whenever I’ve started a new professional project, it’s been with WP Engine hosting. I sleep a lot better now. We’ll just leave it at that. Get 5 months free with your annual hosting – deal ends 12-2. GET GOING.
