Review: STUR Water Enhancers

I was recently given the chance to review a few samples of STUR Water Enhancers. I drink at least 80 ounces of water daily and at times it does get old. I have tried out a few water enhancers in the past but most are loaded with sugar.


 
STUR natural fruit flavors are derived from real fruit, similar to extracts you find in fruit cordials. Just squeeze in water for a flavored drink, each bottles makes 10 8oz. drinks!

-0 calories
-0 sugar
-7 essential vitamins...

-NO artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors

“STUR” actually stands for “Savor The Ultimate Reason” – when we were pregnant, during the tough times, we always kept sight of our ultimate reason of building a family. For those of you trying to lose weight, manage diabetes, or just be healthier and drink more water – whatever your ultimate reason, we hope you stay confident and that STUR helps you reach your goals.
 
Stur Features:▪ Lightly sweetened with stevia leaf extract

Review: 
I received strawberry melon and orange mango. I must say I was very impressed with these water enhancers. You could not even taste the stevia in the water. I must say my favorite was definitely strawberry melon. Whether your goal is to become healthier or thinner, Stur can help you drink more water.

Review: Fake Bake Golden Faux Glo - Shimmer

When I received a request to sample Fake Bake Golden Faux Glo - Shimmer in a wash-off formula, I was thrilled. When it finally came in the mail I had to apply it.
I tan weekly in the tanning bed but some days I just do not want to go. This has really helped with my tan. The great thing about it is that at the end of the way it washes off.
I highly recommend wearing the gloves included as this will stain your hands. Its also best to use on clean, exfoliated skin. The lotion has a scent of vanilla which I really love!
What I love most about Fake Bake products is that they are paraben free and natural ingredients.
Overall, its a great product and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a day/night of looking tan without all the risks of tanning.

Review: 20 Second Fitness

I have an awesome workout program to tell you about today. Do you ever feel like you just do not have enough time to workout? Well now you have now excuses to not workout with 20 Second Fitness.

 
 20 Second Fitness is a scientifically designed to help you reach your weight loss and fitness goals through short, high-intensity interval workouts that exhaust the muscles and burn calories. The program focuses on working out at your maximum effort for 20 second intervals followed by 10 seconds of rest for 4-12 minutes at a time.
 
20 Second Fitness works by tapping into the rarely used anaerobic energy system with rapid calorie burn and muscle targeting to build lean muscle and boost your metabolism.
 
Rapid Burn Resistance Training:
  • Through focused, rapid burn resistance training, you will quickly and efficiently overload muscle groups to maximize toning, sculpting, and building of lean muscle, which in turn leads to additional calorie burn.
  • Each day, 20 Second Fitness focuses on different muscle groups using 20 second HIIT intervals that target and overload specific muscles.
  • Targeting muscles with rapid burn exercises involves the breakdown of muscle fibers with increased stress. After overloading the specific muscle groups, we concentrate on another group to ensure proper rest time where the muscle can rebuild and become stronger.
Flash Cardio:
  • 20 Second Fitness burns the maximum amount of calories in the minimum amount of time.
  • In a clinical study, 20 Second Fitness has shown to burn up to 12x the calories as traditional exercise.
  • 4 short minutes of HIIT during 20 Second Fitness can burn as many calories as 48 minutes of aerobic exercise.
Results from 20 Second Fitness:


 Tiffany L. lost over 25 pounds

Monica S. lost over 70 pounds

Review:
I cannot say enough great things about this workout program. I had a gym membership for over a year and I did great for about 5 months. After 5 months of going to the gym the drive and traffic just did not seem worth going. I like most gave up. When Spencer allowed me the chance to review this I must say at first I was not thrilled. How many workout programs have you seen on tv and tried with no results? I did my first workout and was amazed. I was exhausted and felt great. The next morning I woke up so sore. I could not believe how great this workout program is. My 9 year old son even does it with me! I have been using it for over 6 weeks and I am still seeing great results. I have lost 18 pounds and a lot of inches. Still plan on losing more. I am highly satisfied and I know you will be too if you give it a try!!

Review: Lady Soma Detox

I was recently given the chance to test out this cleanse from Lady Soma. I have always wanted to try a cleanse but was very nervous to try one.

 

The Lady Soma Detox is an advanced cleanse designed for women that is easy to follow and gentle on the system. The benefits of the detox program include getting rid of excess waste buildup, reducing bloating, and support in weight loss. The proprietary formula triggers detox using natural plant ingredients. 

 Key Benefits:
• Safe & natural detoxification
• Seven day elimination of toxins
• No preservatives, no artificial colorings, sugars, or starch
• Supports healthy weight loss

Review:
The first thing I noticed about the detox is that you have to take 12 supplements three times daily for seven days. Take one (1) pack in the morning, one (1) pack in the afternoon and one (1) pack at night. I will admit the size of the supplements was a little scary but they went down just fine. Just make sure you have plenty of water on hand!

Overall, at the end of my 7 day detox I am very pleased with my results. I ended up losing 10 pounds. I will definitely be using this product more in the future and highly recommend it.

Review: Restless Endeavors Restless Greens

I was recently given the chance to review Restless Greens. Restless Greens is gluten FREE, KETO friendly, vegan/vegetarian friendly, and great for everyone from kids to senior citizens! 9 of the most alkalizing greens( alfalfa, arugula, broccoli, chlorella, chlorophyll, kale, spinach, spirulina, wheatgrass). Along with the antioxidant selenium to help in the detoxification process, as well as overall health.
 

About the owner and product:
My name is Megan Williams and I am a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and Diet Specialist. I was a college basketball player and have loved being active since I could walk. Throughout my life I was plagued by many health ailments. From age 12 I suffered from a rare debilitating migraine called, hemiplegic migraines with aura (sounds fun, I know!), that manifest themselves like a stroke, right down to one side of my body going numb.
 
At 17 I contracted a rare pain disorder called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) that has plagued the likes of Paula Abdul, and took several spinal injections to correct. 
At 19 years old I found out I was born with only one kidney, something I would find out later to be quite rare.
 
Also at 19 years old I sustained a concussion during basketball practice that would subsequently turn into a debacle where I would find out I actually sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and have dealt with symptoms of such since then which has led to some diminished mental capacity.
 
Very long story short, all of these things have led me to the health and fitness industry. Due to some of my conditions I have to have a precise and clean diet, and through these last 7 years of my life I have researched and read countless medical journals and books on all things diet/nutrition and have been helping others cope with their shortcomings and health problems through DIET first and then exercise!
 
It was a 3 year process to come up with my supplement Restless Greens. Around my area things like green supplements are quite costly and I wanted to create something that would help not only me, but all my clients, from my children clients to my senior citizens, to my health riddled clients, to my healthy clients. Everyone can benefit from Restless Greens because it's so simple and so straightforward. It's 9 alkalizing greens, 5 digestive enzymes, and one anti-oxidant to help detoxify and aid the system, all encased in a veggie capsule! I love the feedback I have gotten thus far, and love that my  and love that my clients not only buy it once, but come back every month for more! I want to make the world healthier, one person at a time.
 
My Review:
 My life has been crazy and chaotic lately but with the help of Restless Greens it has helped a lot. Some days my nutrition is not all that great. What I love most about this product is I had no negative side effects. My body is very sensitive so I was shocked when I did not have any issues. I will say if you decide to try this product out for yourself get ready for the energy!! On days I forgot or was down and out I could tell a HUGE difference in a bad way. I was dragging and seemed to eat more. I love that it is all natural and comes in a vegetable based capsule. Overall, Restless Greens is a great product and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something affordable, natural, more energy, and to fight cravings.

My Review: 
Getting on the scales has always been my worst nightmare. Recently, I lost 16 pounds and its honestly getting a lot easier. I was very impressed with these digital scales. Since I pretty much check my weight everyday I love that it keeps track of my net weight change from the average of my last 3, 7, and 30 weigh-ins  to help provide a comprehensive understanding of my weight. Everything about the scale is amazing and I will be using it for a very long time!!
