Rewards: My FlipBelt Review

**Edited 3/1/12: Use FlipBelt Coupon code "BBB" at checkout to get 10% your order at FlipBelt.com!!

So I hit 40 pounds down this week, and although I JUST hit it, I bought my reward present a little early (so sue me J).  Brandi had a coupon code for a FlipBelt good for 10% off your order, but it was only valid through February 10th.  I figured I had worked hard, and knew I’d get to a milestone soon, so I went ahead and bought one.  THEN I managed to get another one in a “trade” that I arranged with Heather, who really wanted an Ipsy subscription, and I just so happened to have a gift one that I never gave away at Christmas…so she bought me a second FlipBelt, and I gave her the subscription!

So what the heck is a FlipBelt you ask? It’s this awesome invention to replace that annoying armband you have to wear if you want to bring your music with you on a run.  It’s a band that has openings in it (2 in the front, 2 in the back) that allows you to slide your phone, keys, money, etc. into and keep secure while being active.  If you’re worried about things sliding out, you can flip the belt so that the openings face in, making sure nothing will go anywhere. Do you have fold over yoga pants? It’s sort of like the top fold over portion of those pants…and just as comfy too! It’s not just functional, it’s really cute and super flattering over your workout clothes too!

Anywoo….This thing is AMAZING.  Seriously.  Can’t say enough good about it because I love it that much.  I ordered the pink in size large, and the trade I got from Heather is violet in size medium (for motivation!).  The violet one does fit me right now, but it’s a little snug, and I feel more comfortable wearing the large since I can let it sit lower on my hips.  I like to wear longer layering tanks when I workout, so the large lets me sit the band lower than my tank so that I don’t have to tuck in my shirt or anything silly like that.


(I borrowed my husband’s phone to put in the pocket so you can see what it looks like while I took a picture with my phone!)


I’ve worn this for the past week on all of my treadmill interval runs, and once during a pretty intense Bootcamp.  I’ve worn it while doing my tone em’ up Tuesday moves, and I’ve worn it while just walking around the house.  This thing stays put.  It doesn’t ride up like I thought it might, and it keeps my phone snuggly in place.  I’ve never even had to flip the belt to “secure” my phone because it feels pretty damn secure without it!
I'm even more excited for the warm weather now; my husband and I do a LOT of walking and hiking when the weather is nice, and we are about a 30 minute walk to a handful of restaurants that we take advantage of for dinner out or breakfast on weekends.  Walking down has always been kind of a pain though, because I like to wear my workout capris or yoga pants, which don't have pockets. I don't want to carry a bag, so I end up making my husband carry my wallet, keys, phone, etc.  Not anymore!!

 If you don’t have one of these, go out and get one, you won’t be sorry! Check out their website for more information: http://www.flipbelt.com (Full disclaimer: I purchased this FlipBelt on my own and I'm not being compensated in any way for this review, this is just my humble opinion!)

Oh and remember that awesome giveaway I lined up for 100 followers? Well it’s a free FlipBelt, so get to following!!
