{Giveaway} FitKit 50+

Amie Hoff is giving away a FitKit50+ — a portable fitness kit designed to help FOFs gain confidence and control of their bodies. It includes a fitness band, ID tag, pedometer, reflective armband, resistance tube, exercise band, stability attachment, and access to Amie’s specialized online video library of exercise routines.  Enter to win by answering this question in the comments below: What’s your favorite way to workout?

Amie Hoff, a 49-year-old trainer, first made a name for herself in New York City gyms, and then in national media outlets. After being featured in major magazines such as Fitness, Women’s Health, and Allure magazine and appearing on ABC, NBC and CBS segments, she set her sights even higher hoping to reach a wider audience with her fitness routines. “I wanted to develop a product where I could really help everybody,” says Amie, “because I could only work one-on-one with so many people, and I could only reach so many people during a TV segment.”

Amie and her sister, Beth Wieczorek, an entrepreneur with a background in business development, put their heads together to develop an on-the-go fitness kit that could be used anywhere. Amie came up with a list of exercises that she wanted to include, and 13 major muscle groups that she wanted her kit to target. Her original fitness kit, the FitKit, contained a pedometer and jump rope for cardio workouts, an exercise band and resistance tubing with handles for sculpting and toning muscles, a reflective arm band for late night or early morning workouts, and an ID tag that lists your name, emergency contact, and any medications you may be on. When you purchase a FitKit, you automatically gain access to Amie’s online video fitness library, which has over 250 exercise videos.

After launching the FitKit in December of 2010, both Amie and her sister started experiencing symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. Amie found that age and perimenopause was really affecting her balance, perception and agility. “I really started to think about the issues that the 50+ population were facing,” says Amie, “and I thought, here’s our next FitKit!”

Amie modified the original FitKit and created the FitKit50+. She swapped the jump rope for floor markers to be used in exercises addressing stability, agility, coordination, and balance. The exercise library for the 50+ kit incorporates balance exercises, as well as all of the same strength and cardio exercises from the original FitKit.

Amie recommends using the FitKit50+ 2-3 days per week. For the best results, she tells FitKit users to split up their workouts into cardio and strength training segments, spending about 20 minutes on each. “The great thing about the FitKit is that people can take it on the road with them or do it right in their own living room,” says Amie.  “If people are especially time crunched and can’t get to the gym they have it right on hand. You can even take it to the office!”

Enter to win a FitKit50+ by answering this question in the comments below: What’s your favorite way to workout?

    My easiest and favorite way to workout is to go for a walk. I’ve read that the recommendation for exercise is now 2.5 hours a week. The sneakers I had fitted for me in January have inspired me to go on more frequent and longer walks.

  • nascarblue

    in my first years of school i always joined gymnastics, i was on the team thoughtout high school, loved loved it, after graduating i started again with weights, i have free weights and just sold my machine, it did not give me the same feeling as weights. that is how i still work out, i wake up every morning in the middle of the night, usually around 1 or 2 am, do stretches, then do some weights, before my day and after weights i take my dog and do a run around my neighborhood, this is the best therapy for me, no matter what i am going through i find after lifting and running i feel alot better. also being 58 years young it is very important as a woman to make sure i keep my body strong, no i am not the type of lifter that ends up with very large muscels, jsut tone and feeling great.

    I take classes from a good friend who is also a personal trainer. Yipes! Of course, I slso let her talk me into other “fun” activities. Around here, the “F-word” is spelled F-U-N! That said, I now look forward to her “activities.” I’ve done Warrior Dash and mud runs because of her, and plan to do a 10K this year. (I know it will be slow, but speed is ot my concern.)

  • Terri

    I run a diet/health web site and strongly recommend home workouts…doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact the easier the better! But walking never fails anyone! It’s the single best exercise there is..and I also have a staircase workout I share with those who live in two stories!

  • Deb

    I’ve been into TRX for the past year. It’s easy to do, portable (as I split my time in two states, it goes where I go) and gives me a tremendous full body workout. The problem is, I don’t always have a suitable door to hang the TRX. I like FitKit because it looks as portable, but without the constraints and would also get me outdoors for more cardio!! Great kit for women over 50! (and where can I get that trampoline??)

  • Tari Lawson

    I like to workout outside. I like running or hiking so I can take in the scenes and get my mind off the work :).

  • April V.

    I like to work out by myself and in between everything else, I don’t like to make a substantial part of my day into fitness, I’d rather change the way I do everything else so that whatever I’m doing, I’m doing it for my body as well.

    My favorite way is a good power walk of 45 minutes to an hour, followed by 20 minutes or so of stretching. I like low impact aerobics/fitness too, but am not currently part of a gym or center where they’re offered. I used to run but post-50 knee problems have put the kibosh on that.

  • elizabeth

    I like weight training and running (not jogging, real running). Weights really firm up the body. Most women are afraid to look bulky, but that is hard to achieve even if you want it. I find that using weights sculpts the body and makes it more tone.

  • jnelson230

    Zumba, definitely

  • Rebecca Garcia

    My favorite way to work out is to do an aerobic DVD and also to ride my stationary bike every day. Plus I like to use hand weights to help tone my arms.

  • Violette Chef

    Nothing relaxes me and gets me ready to start the day like an early morning run. I love running along the river

    I’ve found gyms intimidating, so I use exercise DVDs or TV programs at home. I need help!

  • Robin

    I love to bike. I have to wait until at least March to get back outside though. I have a difficult enough time with avoiding being hit by a car in the warm months. I can’t begin to imagine avoiding cars AND snow mounds!

  • ndg1

    My favorite way to exercise is in my sweats in front of the TV in my bedroom. Don’t even remember that I’m exercising – but my muscles do!

    I RUN FOUR DAYS A WEEK

    I work out at home 5 days a week, but as I age, it gets harder and harder to maintain/lose weight – when needed after holidays.

  • joyce

    Hiking and hill walking.

  • Darnell

    Since I have a bad back/neck, trick left knee (from trying to dance) and arithritis in the right knee the only exercise I can do or handle is walking. I join my 10 year old granddaughter when she is practicing track & field. I want to be able to do the duck walk and all the other exercises she does before they start running. Right now I walk and watch her run around me.

  • Margarida

    My favourite way to work out is to walk my dogs.

  • Loesje Shema

    I like to do yoga and go for walks. I am becoming more aware of bouncing or twisting repetitive movements on my knees and hips causing me to ache, so anything which gives great results without damaging my flexibility, etc. is welcome.

    My absolute favorite is hiking but weather and time does always permit so I various options – zumba, strength and resistance routines, eliptical, and a good strenuous walk.

    I like to ride my Townie bike. It is so much better on the joints!

  • janet

    I love to row–the resistance of the water is great for the legs and arms.

  • mary nell

    I try to exercise four days a week. I do cardio for two and strength training for two. Usually the session lasts for about forty five minutes. This makes me sound like I like to exercise. I don’t I just go to the Y and do it and think about it as little as possible because if I thought about it I would remember how much I dislike exercise.

  • donnarp1

    I love taking a class with my good friend. It motivates me to go when I get lazy.

  • harriet h

    Walking and hiking. I get more aerobic exercise when I do the stairs

  • Regena Carney

    Believe it or not, my favorite way to work out is alone. I actually do better on my own, competing against myself. I am more disciplined to work out on my own than attending a gym. I prefer to do some type of aerobics; step, Tae Bo, and mix it up w/ weights. Right now my right arm is bothering me and I can’t put weight on it so I am walking the treadmill like a hamster while it heals!

    Annie looks great. I’m 60, as of last week. I would love to have some of her strength and energy.

    I just started working out at Kokofit Club about 4 months ago – using a weight lift machine and doing cardio. I’ve never “loved” working out, but I can definitely say I don’t hate going to do my workouts at kokofit and it’s been a great motivator for me.

    I have a blast using Wii Fit – the visual is sometimes silly but keeps my attention and makes the workout fun! I also workout to a Jenny McCarthy DVD which puts me in the video so I can make sure I”m keeping up and doing what I’m supposed to do. If it’s fun and imaginative, I look forward to it!

    My favorite way to workout is a trip to the local YMCA where I do cardio for thirty minutes and then strength/muscle building machines for about 15 minutes. It’s like brushing my teeth – part of my daily routine. Gotta get the body moving after sitting at a desk on my job all day! :)

    I am addicted to running and average 4-6 miles 5 days a week. I also do situps. I need to incorporate more weight training and yoga into my routine. I’ve been intrigued by the fitness bands for some time and would love to try them out. I’ll do anything to try and get that body!!!
