I love workout jewelry so much. I’ve even fantasized about creating my own line of jewelry that would be durable, stylish, and express what I’m feeling while I’m crushing iron in my personal nirvana.
And as both a personal trainer and someone who spends a lot of time in the gym, I need all the additional style I can get. I’ve been known to wear leather cuffs and necklaces in the gym, but you don’t see jewelry labeled as “workout-friendly” very often. If you do it’s typically geared towards runners.
So when Ann Cochrane, Momentum’s owner and founder, gave me a complimentary wrap bracelet and shoe charm, I was pumped. (I’m pretty particular about jewelry and these opinions are my own.)
Momentum: Designs That Move You, is “workout-friendly jewelry” that also offers motivational sayings that fit your mood and favorite activities. You can even customize the sayings with your own wording. Momentum jewelry sells wrap bracelets, necklaces, headbands and earrings, shoelace charms, and suede cuff bracelets (which may be the next thing I acquire – love cuff bracelets).
The wrap bracelets are made with washable fabric and lightweight, non-tarnishing aluminum pendants and can be adjusted to your wrist size. This was major for me, as I have the smallest adult-sized wrist on the planet.
One of the things I love the most about Momentum’s jewelry is that it’s not all sport-specific. I see motivational running accessories all the time, but I rarely see jewelry that targets women who love to strength train. I resonate with messages about training hard and being strong and the bracelet I chose says “Stronger than yesterday.” The shoe charm Ann sent says “Beast mode,” so I put it on my leg day shoes (of course!).
Momentum has sayings for spinning (“Spin it out”), triathletes ( “Swim bike run),” and yes, running “Don’t think, just run.”
The company also donates 5% of their profits to the national effort, Action for Healthy Kids. Founded in 2002, Action for Healthy Kids works with schools to fight the national epidemic of childhood obesity by teaching kids to live healthy, active lives. Gotta love it.
Let me know if you try it out!
