Guide Review - iFitness Ultimate Running Belt Review

As a running coach and a mom, I like to carry my cell phone with me while running, just in case of emergencies. I've tried storing it in different running belts and arm bands, but the iFitness Ultimate Running Belt is definitely one of the best solutions I've found. It's very comfortable, sleek yet roomy, and doesn't bounce or ride up on my waist. On a recent 14 mile run, I had it loaded up with my phone, money, three energy gels, and still had plenty of room to spare. The best part is that it's made of neoprene so, although I was sweating during my run, everything inside the pouch stayed completely dry. So it's the perfect place to stash your phone, iPod or other electronics you may need on the run. You may have to shell out a couple of extra bucks compared to other running belts, but it's well worth it, in my opinion.
