How my fit belt helped me improve my game

At a full and productive member of society in my mid 20’s, I can safely say that I am on the go at least 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. I work a full 8-9 hour shift at the office, then head straight into my passion of recreational and semiprofessional running.

Whether I am on a treadmill or hitting the asphalt, I am happy enough to spend a couple of hours moving, after a long day of being stationary at my desk.

As I work in the inner city, I don’t have a car, and rely on public transport; so I carry a backpack between work and gym/run time. I don’t really have much trust in the local lockers that I use, so I only store the very basics such as my work clothes and other personal yet worthless items. As for my house keys, cell phone and wallet, well that all goes straight into my fit belt.

Having a fit belt that fits these 3 important items, yet doesn’t hinder my performance is the key to improving my game psychically and mentally. Before I used a belt, I felt extremely uneasy with the decision to either leave my wallet, keys and cell in the locker, or someone carry them with me in a fanny pack or smaller backpack which really hindered my training.

You seriously can’t train while holding items on your back or in your hands, that ridiculous – and I don’t have the luxury of being able to leave things in a car or have enough time after work to get to my residence and back to the gym or stadium. So the solution of a fit belt is one that I am thankful for discovering.  Something so simple can help open up an entirely different way of training.

What can a fit belt do for your game?

If you choose the right fit belt for you, then you will see an improvement in your training – that’s not to say that it will make you any faster, or help you magically go further. It means that you will have the freedom to run long distances while keeping your vital personal items on your person at all times.

It means that you will have an option that A. won’t weigh you down or hinder your movements and B. will keep you balanced and in a steady stride as it will keep your hands free.

My humble conclusion

In my own humble opinion, belts have helped free me from worry of where to safety and conveniently keep my personal possessions while I run. To me, running is a pleasure; however, as I try to find time after a full day’s work, a little help is needed to keep me mobile.

There are so many options for belts out there, and finding the right one or two for you is pretty simple. For whatever your needs are, there is probably a belt out there built for you.
