In today’s world, a great idea can become a reality thanks to Kickstarter. Pebble and The Dash are two highly successful fitness Kickstarter campaigns that promise to revolutionize the industry. With new Kickstarter campaigns kicking off each and every day, it can be hard to find the best ones to support. Here are the top six fitness Kickstarters that are currently in progress and definitely worth your attention.
Vibram may have kicked off the barefoot running trend, but the Swiss Barefoot Company aims to continue it with its revolutionary product, #FreeYourFeet or FYF. Made from Dyneema, the FYF help to close the gap between your feet and the ground, ensuring super lightweight protection from most elements.
With just 18 days to go, the product already has more than 2,000 backers and has blown it’s originally fundraising goal out of the water.
Figuring out where to store your belongings, like your keys or money, on a long run can be a hassle. PocketBands transforms that with its wristband, made from silicon, that can easily store your cash, key or other important small items when running.
Put it on your wrist and you are ready to go — no need to worry about a bouncing mini-fanny pack or uncomfortable shoe pocket for your goodies.
The project has already raised three times its goal amount with 13 days remaining on the Kickstarter campaign.
Hate rolling up your yoga mat after a great session? Well, now you don’t have to worry about it with YoYo Mats. The mat is like an oversized slap wristband — it automatically rolls up, and stays rolled up tightly, when you are done using it, so you don’t have to worry about struggling with it after your workout.
As an added bonus, you don’t have to worry about the ends curling up with YoYo Mats — they stay completely flat while in use. With nearly two months to go before the campaign ends, YoYo Mats still has 85% of its original goal to go.
Self-Heating Gloves & Insoles
When the weather turns cold and you’re forced to run in the blustery winds, your fingers and feet suffer. Zondo hopes to change that with its Self-Heating Gloves and Insoles. Created with a new revolutionary fabric from Zondo and Astec Inc., it draws heat and energy from your body to warm your hands and feet.
The Kickstarter campaign still has 20 days to go, but has already raised 4.5 times to the original goal amount.
Fitness wearables and watches have taken over the industry to help you become smarter about your fitness and wellness goals. Enter Oura, which brings it up a notch in ring form. It mostly centers around sleep, and what you can do to improve your sleep and thus, enhance other areas in your life.
Even with a hefty goal of raising $100,000 it has significantly exceeded its original goal, even with more than 30 days left before the campaign ends.
Sick of using baggies to carry your protein powder with you to work or the gym? Tired of the mess it leaves on your counter after measuring it out?
Enter PODLife. Grab a Keurig-inspired pod, load it into the custom-designed shaker, fill with water, hit the button and shake, creating a perfectly mixed protein drink. More than 200 backers have already raised over $10,000, but still $35,000 to go in the next 33 days.
