Keep the iPhone on my arm!
I really hate to exercise. No, that would be an understatement. I really, really hate to exercise.
This past summer of 2016, after struggling with the angry bear, also known as my fat tummy and chunky hips, I decided to join a health club. And I committed to 3 or 4 times per week of steady exercise. Mostly Zumba.
Have you ever tried Zumba? Its basically a dance class meant to humiliate, embarrass and discourage. Oh, and its supposed to help you lose weight. Anyway, after a two weeks of this inhumane torture and listening to terrible music that originated in some tropical hell hole, I decided to use my own music through my iPhone 5. If I am going to make a fool of myself, dancing offbeat and dripping sweat, then I might as well listen to music that I enjoy. The problem with Zumba and listening to music is that my iPhone 6 gets slippery with sweat and is prone annoy the hand.
So I went out and purchased a popular iphone armband holder by a company named Belkin. Poor choice. The materials used for this sporty looking armband were thin, single stitched, and slipped on my arm like an oily fish. And the worst part is that the stitching began to unravel after only two weeks. A piece of cheap crap. Not well engineered. These types of things really bug me.
So what did I do next? Well, I looked around at the other ladies in the Zumba class and began to ask what they would recommend. While taking a well needed break at the water fountain, I noticed that the instructor of the class, was wearing an iPhone 6 armband made by a company named Mobityze.
Next, I noticed that several other ladies were also using the Mobityze brand to hold there smart phones. So I asked them a few questions. It turns out that a well constructed, non-slip sport armband is as essential as a decent fitting underwear. Anyway, everyone enthusiastically recommended the Mobityze Sport Armband. Why?
Anyway, it turns out that the owner of the company is a professional fitness instructor that teaches Pure Barre, Cross Fit, Aerobics, Yoga, and is a former professional dancer. She explained that she designed the Mobityze Sport Armband for the professional athlete and professional fitness instructor. The design of the armband came from many years of using various other bands, and she wanted a product that she could be proud of. And to share with her various colleagues and many students.
Mobityze is a small company. Each armband is double stitched and made with high quality materials. And yet its soft and extremely comfortable. I wanted to write this because the market for armbands is extremely confusing and filled with all sorts of junk. Hopefully, this artcile will shorten your learning curve, and help you purchase a product that simply works very well.
You wont find Mobityze Sport Armbands at Kmart or other crappy big box, junk retailers. These armbands are manufactured to order, and can only be purchased through Amazon.
Obviously, I use this armband daily. And I simply love it. So I wanted to write a post and let all of my friends know about this excellent product. You can find it here.
If for some reason its sold out on Amazon, which is quite often is, please email me directly. I will forward your contact information to the company owner. Oh, and here is a little video on the armband...
