With the month of June comes the official start of Summer. Filled with sunshiny days and wonderfully sweaty workouts, June is one of my favorite months. I have rounded up five items to help you kick off the Summer season on a healthy foot. To see the gear you must have this month, just start the slideshow.
If you exercise outdoors, then you definitely should have your ID with you for the same reason we microchip our dogs. Accidents happen, and in those unfortunate situations you, like your K9 friend, may not be able to speak for yourself. That is where the Road ID comes in handy. You can wear your personal information on your wrist, shoe or ankle.
Road ID will take 6 lines of information, your name, contact information, and medical conditions and laser engrave them on a stainless steel plate that can be mounted on a wrist or ankle band, or a tag to be tied easily into your shoe laces. Most styles cost about $20, but that is a low price for peace of mind and to not have to drag your ID along when you run, hike or ride.
Order one directly from Road ID and don't skip the testimonials. They are fascinating and it is always great to read about other fitness fiends surviving accidents and mishaps that can accompany exercising on the road.
Fit's tip: If you started an outdoor exercise routine this summer, you should invest in one of these ID Bands, since daylight saving time is fast approaching and chances are high you will be exercising when it is still dark outside.
Whether you are a runner, walker, biker, climber, hiker, or just a person who doesn't sit on their butt all day, you've got to get a Road ID.
It's just good to be prepared in case of an accident. If you don't believe me, check out this testimonial. This guy was biking and got hit by a car. He couldn't speak, but his ankle ID had all of his info.
You can get up to 6 lines of text engraved on the stainless steel plate. Choose whether you want the Wrist, Shoe, Shoe Pouch, or Ankle ID.
Now you'll have your important info with you whenever you venture out. Each one is made with durable, water-resistant velcro, so it attaches easily. Plus the band acts as a reflector for an added safety bonus. Nice.
They're stylish and safe, and not too expensive at all. Each one is around $20. Even though I wouldn't put a price on safety, that's a pretty awesome deal.
