Words to Sweat By review and giveaway

I was fortunate to find two cool sites recently: Mom Made That and, through that site, Words to Sweat By. Mom Made That is all about mom businesses and blogs; helping moms promote their products, services and sites to a wider audience.

In checking out the site, I found Words to Sweat By -- Workout Towels with Attitude. The owner, Dana, and I emailed and she sent me one of her super cute workout towels to review -- and she offered the opportunity to give one away. So, I took her up on the offer!




Each of the Words to Sweat By towels is a generously sized white terry "appliqued with an original mantra that is meant to motivate you while you strive to reach your health and fitness goals."

Some of the mantras include:
  • Healthy. Strong. Happy.
  • No excuses.
  • I am a body in motion.
  • Whatever you do, don't hold your breath.
  • Exert. Hydrate. Repeat.
I selected a towel with a light blue applique that says, "I am a body in motion." The towel came nicely packaged in a reusable (read more here) drawstring organza bag, and looked as good in real life as it did on the web site. As I mentioned above, the size is ample, making it perfect to wipe up your sweat after a run or tough workout.

My towel was soft enough to use right away and it held up well in the wash. Overall, a win!

These towels would make great gifts for the active men, women or kids in your life -- or for yourself! I'm thinking that with the weather warming up, we're all going to be out there sweating more, so why not have a fun towel to slop up the sweat, instead of using shirtsleeves :-)

To buy:

The towels are only $8 each and you can order them directly from the Words to Sweat By site here.

Good luck!
