Happy Monday! It’s a new week and a fresh start to dominate your goals. I had a busy weekend as always. I took a half day from work on Friday and hit the gym around lunch. We had to go to a funeral on Friday and then the rest of the weekend was spent at our rental properties fixing them up…as always.
Before we left to go to the houses on Saturday morning, I did a quick outdoor workout because it was beautiful out! The workout was only about 10 minutes but hey…it’s better than nothing!
It was one of those random, decide what to do on the fly – type of workouts.
If you’re wondering what the blue box is next to me while I’m doing my pushups…well that thing is such a cool little gadget. It’s called a Jabra Solemate.
It’s a portable bluetooth stereo that surprisingly has unbelievable sound quality. My parents have a Bose stereo and I swear this sounded SO good I had to compare it to their Bose!
I brought it outside and played some tunes streamed from my iPhone while I worked out. I hate working out without music, are you the same way?
The Jabra Solemate also comes with a little bag that you can put your Solemate in if you want to bring it to the beach. It allows you to still hear the music but protect it from sand and water. What a great idea! I can see myself using this a lot when I move to Charleston, SC at the end of summer!!!
When my workout was over, I decided to bring my little sidekick with me to our worksite for music. It was such a perfect sound system to have when we were painting.
We had to paint an entire 1700 ft house this weekend. We didn’t finish yet but I think I’m over painting at this point haha.
Anyway…..now that I’ve introduced you to my new favorite on-the-go bluetooth stereo…I have a surprise for you

I was so excited to try them out so I hit the street and took my dogs for a walk. Walking in them was great because they were so light. So far, so good!
So the next day at lunch I put the shoes to the real test and wore them during one of my intense HIIT training sessions. Well..they passed that test too. They held up with my sprinting session on the treadmill and felt great. It’s so nice to have shoes that are so light and feel like a glove on my foot.
I have some other shoes that are heavy and it makes those HIIT sessions much harder to get through.
I decided I’d share my HIIT workout with you guys so maybe you can try it too!
Basically this is a 20 minute workout which includes a 5 minute warmup and a 7 min jog at the end. That means you only have to sprint 8 times!
I like to do this type of training because it allows you to reach your maximum heart rate though the sprints. Instead of resting after the sprints, I like to maintain a steady state jog to finish the workout so my heart rate never drops back to normal or gets that recovery at the end. This will allow you to kill some major calories and you should also be in a good fat burning state by the end of the workout so you can blast away fat too! BOOM!
If you try this workout, feel free to leave a comment below to let me know how you like my SpeedForm Sprint Workout.
