It’s officially hot out there, Austin! Do you feel like you’re sweating buckets during your outdoor workouts yet?!
We recently learned about a new product that helps you workout through the sweat. It’s called HANDANA and it’s a high performance athletic band designed to be worn on your hand to wipe away blood, sweat, tears (and snot). Handana just slips on like a glove with your thumb in the center hole. Made of supplex Lycra, which is nylon made to feel like cotton, Handana wicks away the moisture and drys quicker than cotton. It’s easily washable – after your workout just throw it in the washing machine on cold with like colors, line dry, and it’s ready to go for your next workout. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes to fit any athlete.
It’s great for running, cycling, yoga, CrossFit, spinning, bootcamp, tennis, hiking, yard work and virtually any other activity that makes you sweat. It was developed in Austin by a local entrepreneur, athlete, mom and wife, so you know it’ perfect for our super-humid and hot conditions.
Tell us HOW YOU PLAN TO SWEAT THIS SUMMER and you could win your very own Handana! Leave a comment here or on Facebook to enter. Contest winners will be announced Thursday, June 14 at 3pm CST.

Don’t let summer and these 100+ temps get you down, athletes and weekend warriors. We know, it’s really hot. And you want to keep exercising, whether you’re swimming, cycling, running, or bootcamping outside OR even working out indoors – remember to stay hydrated with water PLUS an electrolyte enhanced drink.
You’re probably all familiar with at least a few electrolyte drinks (think Gatorade, Powerade). Now think of a healthier hydration product that isn’t loaded with sugar and won’t “undo” your hard work. Nuun is a great product to replenish electrolytes and minerals that you sweat out during your workout (or walking around town, let’s be honest). The best part: nuun has no sugar and each tablet contains less than 8 calories. Nuun comes in tablet form which means you can easily stash a few in your workout bag, jersey pocket or SPIbelt when you’re on the go!
Nuun recently released new flavors that are really light and refreshing – strawberry lemonade, grape, fruit punch, and tropical.
MyFitList has a stash of new flavors and classic flavors to giveaway! Enter by 1) Join the MyFitList mailing list or 2) Comment on our Facebook page to tell us what fitness activities you like to do that make you sweat!

It’s almost the weekend! I know you’re all excited to bust out of your office in a few hours to rest, play and maybe sneak in a little fitness over the next couple of days.
We have a few ideas for staying active this weekend, in our weekly feature – the Friday Fitness Find:
- Heated yoga classes at Black Swan: it’s 70° and sunny in Austin right now, but this weekend may be a little cold and rainy! Warm up with a “Sweaty Yoga” class at Black Swan Yoga. Black Swan is a donation-based studio, meaning that you pay what you can per class (the suggested donation is $10-15 per class). The Sweaty Yoga classes are flow-style yoga, in rooms heated to around 90°. It’s nice! There are two Sweaty Yoga classes on Saturday and three on Sunday (among their many other yoga classes every weekend). Check out their full schedule.
- Free bootcamps: if you’re looking to get some time outside this weekend, try a free Bootcamp. These 45-minute to 1-hour workouts are an effective way to get in a mix of strength training and intense cardio. The trainers will tailor exercises for beginners to advanced athletes, and as a bonus many of these groups meet in gorgeous parks around Austin! A few groups offering a free Saturday bootcamp this weekend: ATX Bootcamp Living, Austin Adventure Bootcamp, CoreFit, and Relentless Bootcamp. Check out the Free Workouts listings on our full site, www.myfitlist.com for all the details including time and location.
Have an awesome weekend!
