Words to Sweat By Towel Review & Giveaway

Repeating something to yourself while you're working out is an effective way to take your mind off the pain and the distance and makes you believe in yourself (or at least pass the time!) and push yourself to the limits. I was so happy when the folks at Words to Sweat By sent me this No excuses towel to review.

The towel mantras range from serious to silly and motivational and themes for foodie lovers to remind themselves of their health goals!!!

I chose to review the No excuses towel because it really is what I'm all about. There really are 24 hours in the day and we can all take a little time for ourselves each and every day. To some, that may seem like ONLY 24 hours. But, the more I put on my plate, the more I realize what CAN be done and that no one will sacrifice from me also taking some time for myself.


This company has also launched a new line of inspirational key chains and zipper pulls. You can find all the mantras here. If you’re looking for a fun gift, pair a key chain together with the matching towel!

The towels are white and each have a different color fabric sewn on that varies with each mantra. They are a decent size and inspired me during my treadmill runs. The towel has held up through four workouts now and wash and wear .... and tons and tons of sweat!! It still looks like new! At only $8 they are a steal and would be a great, affordable addition to your Mother's Day wish list or a gift basket for that special runner!!

About the designer:
Before designing and producing Words to Sweat By, Whimsical Walney had a children’s product company focused on clothing and accessories that were meant to foster a child’s imagination.

  18. "Healthy. Strong. Happy." It has taken me a long time to feel that way about myself and now I finally do, would love to see it on a towel to remind me around mile 5! :)

  19. hmmm... can't decide between "healthy, strong, happy" and "no excuses"... if i HAD to pick, i'd go with "h,s,h"

    thanks so much for turning us on to "words to sweat by", they have great stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I started following today...of the available choices, "Healthy. Strong. Happy" sounds great, though I still like "Either get busy living, or get busy dying" as a motivational quotation. Perhaps a bit too "dark" for a towel!

  21. I like the Exert, Hydrate, Repeat towel
