With all the fads out there, I am so glad that Beachbody keeps it simple.  Good nutrition + sensible exercise + support = success.

Shelby Blankenbaker's curator insight, December 1, 2014 11:05 PM

One of the top fashion trends for the 2015 year is none other than fitness watches. Tom Tom watches, Fit Bits, Nike Plus,  and other tracking devices are said to be one of the trendiest accessories and ways to work out this next year. It comes as no surprise to me after working Black Friday this past weekend. Many shoppers were coming into the Nike Outlet to pick up Nike Fuelbands as presents for the holiday season. Although these bracelets aren't made for children or adolescents, seeing as there is no need for them to track their physical fitness, parents were purchasing them at their children's  requests. They have become a symbol of athleticism, and anyone, whether they admit to it or not, are using them to create an image of being in style. I have found that many users of these devices do not even know all the benefits the bands have to offer. They are after the sleek look and athletic image.
