I love reviewing things on this site, really… I do. Sometimes I receive things from companies and I’m always super grateful for those opportunities. And sometimes I buy things on my own, simply for the purpose of reviewing it and sharing it on here because it gives me some kind of weird satisfaction. But I am not independently wealthy and my family doesn’t own a chain of hotels and nobody is giving me a paycheck in the millions for my line of work, so I can’t afford to buy everything in the world.
But if I did have unlimited funds… there are a few things that I would buy to test and share on here just out of sheer curiosity.
From the source: Rewards you instantly with a warm soothing feeling, Increases blood circulation, which helps release muscle tension and brings energy, Relieves pain associated with back and neck stiffness, Gives you an opportunity to relax and recharge
My reason: Sweet… lying on a spiky mat is going to make me feel UH-MAY-ZING. All that pain and knotting and tension that I consistently carry in my shoulders and back would magically disappear with this. Plus, if I had to lay on this to relieve it, that might be good for me to take 15-20 minutes each day in quiet reflection all to myself!
The price point: $40
From the source: Think Less, Run Better (Buy yourself a Nike+ SportWatch GPS at Best Buy, go outside and run.) – Put on your Nike+ SportWatch GPS, go outside and run. The Nike+ Sensor is optional. Tap the screen to mark laps and activate the backlight during your run, and personalize the data that you want to see during your run. For direct connect, USB contacts are built into the watch strap—just plug the watch directly into a USB port on your computer to upload run data and recharge the battery.
My reason: It just looks really cool. And I still have a soft spot in my heart for the Nike+ community back from when I used the Nike+ sensor to record all my running. And the fact that you can plug this directly into a USB port sounds ideal, my Garmin takes about 3 or 4 sync attempts to successfully sync my run data to my computer via the cradle.
The price point: $199
From the source: Sheex, the world’s first luxury performance bed sheets. Sheex were inspired by the finest professional-quality athletic fabrics, offering a superior level of comfort and performance to help you sleep better.
My reason: These sheets have wicking properties? And cooling properties? And they’re breathable? Awesome! Do you have any idea how hot it is here in the summer? Wicked hot! We had to pull our bamboo sheets out of the closet for the summer, even though they are torn in a few places because they didn’t hold up to the wash/drying, simply because the cotton sheets felt oppressive once the summer heat arrived. Maybe these would make both of us feel like we have super-mega-energizer-bunny levels.
The price point: $215 for a king set
From the source: This table, constructed of heavy steel, helps strengthen your back, elongating your spine and increasing circulation.
My reason: Another thing that could possibly help relieve pain in my back? Cool! Plus, it just looks like it might be fun! It does seem like it takes up a lot of space though…
The price point: $249
From the source: The TRIA Hair Removal Laser is the only laser that delivers permanent results at home. Created by the same scientists who set the gold standard for in-office laser hair removal, our laser disables hair follicles to keep hair from growing back in as little as 6 months.
My reason: Shaving is a pain in the butt… well, not literally. But it’s just an annoyance. If I could take care of that with a permanent fix, AWESOME! I don’t see a reason why I would ever want to grow hair in my pits, that can permanently go away.
The price point: $395
How about you? Would you try any of these? Have you tried any of these? What health/wellness/fitness products out there would you try if price weren’t a factor?
