Catch Those Fitness Feels!


It doesn’t matter if you’re a fitness newbie or seasoned gym rat, brand new exercises can be as ineffective as they are intimidating until you learn to do them properly. The Kebe system is designed to aid in this process and help you get your good form down!

The simplistic design consists of a kettle bell with an integrated smartphone holder and an app. Held face-up in place directly on the kettle bell, your smartphone becomes a personal trainer, instructing you step-by-step on how to perform various exercises to work out your entire body. It not only gives you precise instruction, but also provides haptic and visual feedback to indicate when you’re doing movements right or wrong and what you can do to improve!

The Fitness Tracker for Your Mind

Spire is the latest trend in wearable tech and it’s focused on focus! Unlike most fitness trackers which only track step goals, Spire aims to enhance the wearer’s awareness of their state of mind and how it relates to breathing.

Worn comfortably on the belt or bra, it detects your breath throughout the day and sends immediate alerts when it detects how tense, focused, active or calm you are. Paired wirelessly with a comprehensive smartphone app, it tracks trends and gives the user tips and tricks for breathing as well as other recommendations to relax or energize for reaching an optimal state of mind and well being! After use (its battery can last up to 7 days!) the unit can be tossed on an attractive wireless cork charging pad until you’re ready.
