Boot Camp Challenge Week 3
If you completed Week 3’s Boot Camp Challenge, post and let us know, and then give yourself a BIG pat on the back! Badges for Week 3 are at the bottom of the post. Be Proud. Walk Proud. We said, “Bring It On” and you Brought It!
Our towel of the month is Sweat is Sexy!
Einstein had it right. There is no denying that sweat is sexy. You can celebrate sweat (and sweating) with a “Sweat is Sexy” towel. Our towel of the month is on special for $8 — That’s $2 off the regular price!
Need a Father’s Day gift? Keep your father happy, dry, and motivated by giving him a towel to take to the gym or to use after his run. Your dad isn’t an exerciser? Now is the time to get him started. He can begin by walking short distances, gradually increasing his speed and distance. Walk with your dad to give him encouragement and to enjoy each other’s company. A family that sweats together, lives together.
I Think That I Shall Never See a Thing as Lovely as a Sweaty Tee!
In the spirit of our Towel of the Month a few fun facts about S-W-E-A-T.
Sweat is made up of water, potassium, salt (a mix of sodium and chloride), and small amounts of waste products.
We have 2-4 million sweat glands in our body.
Women have more sweat glands than men, but men’s sweat glands are more active.
Ever wonder why your t-shirts get yellow stains in the underarm or collar area? We have two types of sweat glands: eccrine and approcrine. The approcrine glands are responsible for the “yellowish” stains because they contain proteins and fatty acids and their secretions are thicker and yellowish in color. That’s kind of gross, but nice to know!
All this talk about sweat, has me wondering how many of you were able to complete the boot camp challenge this weekend? I cannot wait to find out!
