Tested: Natrol AcaiBerry Diet Pills

I’m skeptical of all diet pills. And I’m really skeptical of anything that so much as mentions acai berry or raspberry ketones. So when I first heard of Natrol AcaiBerry Diet, you better believe I had a good chuckle! Then, just before writing them off permanently, I

Spending a Day on Nutrisystem – What Was I Thinking?!

Now that Thankgiving and Christmas are behind us, I can already sense diet season sneaking up around the corner. At least in part, this is thanks to Nutrisystem. It could be because I live in Pennsylvania where the company is based, but I always see their stuff

Tested: Waxman SuperSliders (Valslides Alternative)

I hate stupid fad fitness products sold on infomercials, but I love innovative equipment you can actually use. I also love homemade solutions to expensive equipment! That’s how I found these Waxman SuperSliders furniture sliders…

Tested: Precision Nutrition

Ever wonder about the best diet ideas? Yeah, we all do. There are very few endurance athletes out there that aren’t infatuated with nutrition and all the choices over proper food and drink intake. Here is the book for you…

Tested: Queen Helene’s Cocoa Butter Creme

Looking for a low-price chamois cream? There are a few good options out there that don’t require you to pay a premium price for a tiny tube, and Queen Helene’s Cocoa Butter Creme is one that I love. Considering that the point of chamois cream is to prevent chafing, I don’t see a good reason to buy something special. Lots of skincare products provide the same function but cost 50-90% less!

Kashi Granola Bars – Are They Really Healthy?

Kashi bars sound healthy. But are Kashi granola bars healthy? Let’s look at their bars. Let’s answer the question today. (We have discussed Kashi cereals before. They’re not bad, but they’re not the healthiest choices.) Tested: Kashi GO LEAN Crunchy Bar After eating numerous boxes of Kashi

Tested: HydraPak Stash 1L Collapsible Water Bottle

Hard plastic water bottles not meeting your needs? Do you feel like empty bottles take up too much space? Then maybe you need a HydraPak Stash 1L Collapsible Water Bottle. This is entirely different than any other water bottle I’ve reviewed! There are some other collapsible bottles

Tested: RhinoShield CrashGuard iPhone Bumper Case

If you’re out bike riding, trail running, or rock climbing, and you’re carrying a smartphone, you want to protect it. In those situations, it’s a matter of when – not if – the phone will take a tumble! That’s why when a case was being hyped up

Tested: Lifetrak Zoom HRV Monitor

Previously, I was never a huge fan of activity trackers. They simply weren’t good enough for athletes. Sure, they were high-tech devices. But as far as information provided, they were very basic, beginner devices. (I’ll take a Garmin Forerunner thank you very much!) Finally, one of these

Tested: Honey Stinger Organic Energy Waffles

This isn’t just any waffle. It’s a “Stroopwafel” like you find in the Netherlands, but it comes packaged like an energy bar. They have been a long-time tradition in Belgium and the Netherlands, first brought to the world of endurance sports by Honey Stinger. (I remember hearing

Tested: Crotch Guard Skin Care Oil

No, there is certainly no shortage of chamois creams or butt butters, but this is a first for me. It’s a crotch oil! Aptly named, Crotch Guard Skin Care Oil. Part of a line of skin care oils, this one is designed exclusively for cyclists and comes

Tested: Two Wheel Gear Garment Pannier Classic 2.0

As if the physical challenge of bike commuting isn’t enough (using your bike to carry both you and your belongings to work), there is the matter of logistics (what’s the best route? what is today’s weather forecast?). On top of that, what if you have to wear

Tested: Nalgene Draft Soft-Squeeze Water Bottle

I never thought I’d say, “let me grab my Nalgene bottle and head out for a bike ride” – but now I can, because of the recently released Nalgene Draft Water Bottle. The soft-squeeze plastic water bottle is easy to operate with one hand, while riding. It

Tested: Mitscoots Running Socks

While looking up companies with charitable operations one day, I stumbled upon Mitscoots. It might be a funny name, but they rival Bombas (those super comfy socks I reviewed earlier) when it comes to charitable giving. We’re not just talking socks, though. Mitscoots Outfitters makes a range

Tested: Polar Bottle Insulated Water Bottle (with Zipstream Lid)

The Polar Bottle. This classic water bottle is one of the first cycling accessories I ever purchased! That was many, years ago, and it’s still around today. So it’s about time I post a review of the Polar Bottle Sport (with Zipstream Cap). Here’s the truth –
