Wristband Motivation

06 Dec

Everyone needs a little extra motivation right?  And who knows more about the motivation they need then the person putting in the effort?  That’s why we are asking you to come up with an amazing slogan, quote, or phrase to put on our brand new wristbands.  Not only will the winning quote go on our wristbands for thousands of people to read, but you will win a $100 gift card from

Some of you may be wondering why we are doing this.  We get hundreds of calls a month from people with very similar issues and similar goals.  They want to lose weight, and they are struggling to do it.  We have found one of the keys behind weight loss is motivation.  Motivation to go for a walk in during the sleepy winter months, motivation to say no to that second serving of dessert, or motivation to not go on that midnight binge.

We think these wristbands can have an amazing effect on your motivation level.  Don’t just wear it and forget about it though.  We have two ways to stay motivated using these wristbands.

  1.  Set up a schedule to read the quote on the wristband and remind yourself why you are trying to lose weight.  Maybe it’s to impress someone, do better at a sport, live longer, or just feel better (and you will!).  If you do this daily you are much more likely to avoid the pitfalls that keep you from losing weight.
  2. Make it a game.  Start with your wristband on your left wrist.   Make a commitment to your exercise and diet plan.  Every time you miss a workout or have an unscheduled cheat meal, move the wristband to your right wrist.  This signifies that you messed up.  Hold yourself accountable!  After your next workout or walk move it back to your left wrist and start over again.


We look forward to seeing your awesome suggestions to go on our brand new wristbands!  Make our decision tough for us and feel free to leave multiple suggestions.  Just leave a comment on this blog post containing your idea and you will be entered into the contest.
