Coresport Workout Shirt That Cools Down as You Heat Up: Sweat Wicking, Heat Activated Cooling Fabric, Antibacterial, & Odor-Resistant


I am in love with my new favorite workout shirt from Coresport. It not only cools down as you heat up, it fits perfectly, has a very flattering cut, & is super comfortable! The tight wove mesh back can even enhance calorie burn. I am seriously loving this shirt. With Coresport’s moisture-activated cooling and calorie-burning fabrics, the workout shirt can actually help cool you down. In fact, the more you perspire, the cooler you get. The moisture-activated cooling material uses Specific Heat Capacity yarn and special fiber to absorb perspiration and moisture, which then evaporates quickly, resulting in clothes that are at least eight degrees Fahrenheit cooler than conventional clothes, and which stay dryer as well. Available on kickstarter at an AMAZING price! Available in mens & womens cuts and in various colors. Keep reading to learn more. 



The back of the Coresport shirt is a mesh fabric which is super breathable, but which can also enhance the calorie burning rate. The fabric reflects a significant amount of UV light, making the shirt perfect for outdoor sports. In addition, the fabrics are infused with minerals that make the clothes odor-resistant and antibacterial. The back is only slightly sheer and looks so CUTE with those mesh panel leggings that are so popular now. I love wearing this shirt to workout in and its cute enough to wear all day long. 



The shirt is perfect for hiking, biking, cardio, strength training or any tough workout. If you are doing outdoor workouts this summer I highly recommend you get a Coresport shirt. The UV protection and cooling effects make SUCH a difference when its hot out. I wore this on my last hike & could REALLY tell the difference, and let me tell you it is already HOT here in the desert!
The technology of CoreSport provides a moisture-absorbing, quick dry and breathable garment, designed to keep you comfortable, fresh and UV protected. This product allows for a longer and more enjoyable workout by removing the downsides to working out. I love that it is odor-resistant & antibacterial. Great for camping, trekking, and any group fitness activities.

Bo Yoga is ready to tackle this goal and provides yoga routines that are perfect for both women & men and Bo Yoga has a revolutionary new yoga balance bar that allows you to feel safe and supported in your practice. Bo Yoga routines are not the normal Vinyasa classes, that you may have tried in the past that probably included significant weight bearing on your wrists and hands, lots of trips up and down from the floor, fast paced group movements and rapid, complicated instructions. These routines include yoga, Tai Chi & mindful movement and are perfect for participants of all ages & fitness levels.

Bo Yoga 5 Elements Qi Gong
Nate Guadagni 

The 5 Elements Qi Gong program includes a warm up using the balance bar, a warm up without the balance bar, a thorough system intro, fully chaptered qi gong programs for each of the 5 elements, balance programs, and even bonus routines. You will only need your optional Bo Yoga Balance Bar for these routines.

The warm ups include Daily Dozen Joint Warm Ups with and without the bar (23 and 27 minutes). There are 3 balance routines, each is available with or without voice cuing (5-6 min each). The system intro is 19 minutes and there are 9 bonus routines from 3 to 6  minutes each.

The main qi gong program is 7 minutes in total or you can select a chapter (ranging from 2-3  minutes each). The elements covered include wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. The program is available with or without cuing.

These routines are suitable for absolutely all fitness levels. I really appreciate that it includes a complete & thorough introduction that fully explains your qi gong practice. This set really is a great value. The Qi Gong series alone contains over 127 minutes of footage and the no cuing footage as well. This is a great qi gong routine that I am happy to have in my workout library. I received this workout to review.

Interview with Spread the Smile Workout's Gina Buber



Introducing the Spread the Smile workouts! If you are like me, and want to stay fit but really are not into killer high impact workouts, then these are the workouts for you. They are effective, fun, & low impact. I love Gina & her Smile Team and can't wait to tell you all about them! There are even free workouts on their YouTube channel! Stay tuned on the blog for detailed reviews of the workouts or click the "Spread the Smile Workouts" tab on the right side bar to access all of my Smile posts.





Lindsey: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in the fitness industry?

Gina: I’ve always been a dancer at heart. Ever since I can remember, music and movement have been a major influencer in my life. I have been a ballroom & latin professional dancer for over 20 years, with wins in the US Open Youth Latin Championship and in more recent years I was Australian Salsa Champion. Though when I retired from competition, I wanted to find a way to keep fit, but I hated going to do boring gym workouts. I instantly fell in love with group fitness programs like Les Mills Body Jam and Zumba so I became a group fitness instructor and found my new creative outlet. More recently, becoming a certified personal trainer, my focus shifted to the importance of helping people keep fit in the long term and how I could utilise my dance skills to achieve this. Now I am passionately creating my own dance fitness programs!

Lindsey: What motivated you to create fitness DVDs?

Gina: After years of teaching high impact fitness classes, my body was feeling it! I also noticed over the years, regular fitness members had started to drop off with injuries and so I felt that there had to be something out there that wasn’t so jarring on the body, I honestly found very few FUN programs available to me. I had already been experimenting in my classes with my own freestyle choreography and when I noticed more and more members loving my style, I created my own class. However, there was only one of me and I wanted to share my program with a much bigger community. A couple of years later, I took the plunge and thought that I could best spread my message by  bringing my workouts to people at home no matter their geographic location. That’s how our first DVD came to life!


Lindsey: I recently had the opportunity to review your newest fitness DVDs, and really enjoyed them!

Do you have any plans on the horizon for new DVDs?

Gina: Absolutely! My mind is always ticking and I already have some ideas in the pipeline. I never want our community to be bored so variety is the spice of life! In the meantime we are sharing our free weekly workouts on our website www.spreadthesmile.com.au for everyone to have fun with and stay motivated!


Lindsey: Does your fitness routine focus mainly on walking & dance or do you also participate in other types of fitness? Can you share with us your typical routine?

Gina:  I love my cardio! So yes walking and dancing are definitely my favourite go to workouts but I also am huge believer in maintaining strength and tone through weight training and body weight exercises. In addition for my flexibility and my mind, Yoga really helps centre me. So I like to vary my weekly workout routine by attacking all 3 elements cardio, toning & flexibility.

I typically will have my cardio days by teaching my group dance fitness classes 3 times a week and an easy walk on weekends. I like to do a circuit style workout at the gym twice a week involving weights, bodyweight exercises and the cardio machines. I also add a yoga style session at home once or twice a week depending on how I feel. So I keep my workout super varied and flexible but I do workout almost everyday or I feel lethargic! If I don’t feel like working out then walking is usually my go to or I’ll just have a complete rest day.


Lindsey:  We all have so many personal & professional responsibilities that keep us all very busy. How do you balance it all?

Gina: It’s hard! But the more I find myself doing the things I love and when they don’t feel like a chore, the easier it is to get clarity. I also find that since I start my day most mornings at 6am, it helps me maximize the time in my day. I must admit working on SMILE with my Husband helps me tick both personal and professional boxes together. But in all honestly it’s a work in progress and one side does tend to take over and sometimes it’s just about even taking time out once in a while to completely zone out and recharge. A great tip I use when having personal time is to switch off from devices even if it’s just about doing that while you’re having dinner just to give you some separation and give yourself full attention to that time. Nobody’s perfect and I’m always trying to learn better strategies to find balance, like I said, WORK IN PROGRESS LOL.

Lindsey: What prioritizing tips can you share to help us fit in our workouts, stay consistent, and reach our fitness goals?

Gina:  I have 3 main tips that help me stay on track: Number 1: If you enjoy your workout then you’ll stick to it! This applies to your way of eating as well. If you find it a chore, whatever it is, you’ll never stick to it in the long term, so whatever you do find something you enjoy and keep your routine varied so you stay motivated and you won’t be bored. Number 2: Make lifestyle changes gradual and keep them small, so that you don’t even realise the changes are happening, before you know it, your previous habits will be booted out! Number 3: Reward yourself for your efforts! I always give myself a treat meal (or two) or I’ll go get a massage because I’ve put in the work. Whatever it is, you need to thank yourself for showing up and trying to be the best version of yourself, so whatever it is show your body some love!

MyPhonePouch: Cell Phone Holder That Fits on Leggings & Any Pants Without a Belt Specifically Made for Working Out


Let's face it, fitness enthusiasts have limited options to carry their phone in the gym making misplaced, dropped, or flat-out lost cell phones a constant problem! This is particularly an issue with womens clothing, fitness & otherwise that often lack pockets in their outfits. MyPhonePouch is a simple, yet ingenious cell phone holder accessory that is completely different because there is absolutely nothing else like it on the market and it is ideal for the fitness market. Perfect for travel, hiking, biking, weight lifting, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, low impact cardio, walking, and so much more- this is a must have fitness accessory that all fitness fanatics will wonder how they lived without! 


The founder, Allison Santini and as a busy mother, wife, and businesswoman, her hands are always full and she is always on the go. She invented MyPhonePouch, a simple yet clever phone holder accessory to solve the constant, nagging problem of how to keep up with her cell phone. It is the perfect accessory for athletic-wear that often lacks pockets or has loose pockets where your cell phone can easily slip out.

MyPhonePouch is perfect for not only exercising, but any time you dont have pockets, or if youre like me & love your leggings! Great for travel - just grab your MyPhonePouch & go. Pop in your phone, ID, & a credit card & you are hands free for travel. We travel a lot & I hate having to carry a purse or wallet and phone around. Going hands free is the way to go! Of course this is perfect for working out. If you enjoy outdoor walking, hiking, or biking- this is the perfect way to keep your phone close by & protected.


While MyPhonePouch was originally designed or women and girls, it can be worn by anyone for practically any activity.

The pouch pivots with you as you move so you can bend, sit, walk and move about without adjusting your phone.


Most other phone holsters on the market are designed for men and have to be clipped onto a belt. MyPhonePouch is superior to pockets and ingeniously different than other phone holders, making it perfect to wear with yoga pants, leggings, sweats, skinny jeans, pants, skirts, pajamas and other garments. Just tuck MyPhonePouch over a snug waistband and you are good to go. Simply tuck MyPhonePouch over a snug waistband (or belt) to easily carry your phone with you – hands-free, pockets-free, and purse-free. The removable, stainless-steel counter-weight in the back-side offsets the weight of your phone and when combined with a snug waistband holds MyPhonePouch in place, no belt required, no straps across your body.



MyPhonePouch is perfect for low impact workouts. With no belt required and no straps across your body, MyPhonePouch simply tucks over almost any snug waistband (hello, athletic-wear) allowing you to keep your phone secure and accessible. From walking on the treadmill and workouts on the elliptical, stairmaster and cycles, to weight machines and free weights, MyPhonePouch instantly adds multiple pockets to any outfit that has a snug waistband, perfect to carry your phone, ID and other small essentials during a workout. MyPhonePouch is the ideal low impact workout accessory but it is NOT designed for running, aerobics, jumping or other high-impact sports.
