Product Review and Giveaway: iFitness Belt

Wearing a belt while running works for many of us, and recently, we had the opportunity to try out the iFitness single pouch Neoprene running belt.  These belts were included in the awesome goody bag that runDisney provided after the fabulous WDW Marathon meetup.

Christine had planned to purchase a belt at the Expo that we were attending after the meetup.  And given that the expo was a mad house, she decided this one would be just perfect for the Donald Half Marathon!  Endorsed by Jeff Galloway, these belts are perfect for long runs. They are made with a water resistant material and include several pockets inside the zipper pouch. At the bottom of the belt there are two toggles to attach your bib as well.

Christine loved running with her belt - it fit well, held all of her essentials and was very comfortable!  For the race, it held her room key, ID, some cash, and cell phone.  It would be great for holding gels, a camera, chapstick or anything else for a long run or race.  And after a very hot, sticky morning, she can attest to it's water resistant properties!

iFitness is giving one of our lucky readers a single pouch Neoprene running belt (retail value $23.95) in their choice of color shipped directly to you.  We will select a winner using random.org on Sunday, February 3rd at 8pm EST.  To enter, please leave us a comment (on this blog post) telling us which color you would choose and how you'll use it.  That's it...it's that simple!  Good luck!

  1. Yay! What a wonderful belt. I ran my first with a fanny pack (yep, newbie runner here) All my photos make me look like I had extra junk in my trunk. This would at least slim me down a bit. hehe. I would definitely use this for those long runs, and race day.
    Black with a red zipper would be nice.
    Thanks so much!

  14. Cute, and looks functional. I love that it has a spot to attach the bib to. I'm thinking grey with pink or the black one, since it could go with multiple outfits. I'd use it with the skirts and pants that don't have pockets for gels, ID and my phone.

  19. Finding a way to hold my gels or shot bloks, along with kleenex and all my other essentials, is always a challenge. These belts look like they'd fit the bill, and I love that they hold your race bib on as well! I would love a blue or pink one to use for my first half marathon -- the Princess Half Marathon in Feb! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. These sound great! I would love a pink and black one! I live in the country so I do a lot of my long runs without being able to double back for fuel or other necessities so I would use the belt not only in races but during training runs!

  31. Thanks for the chance to win one of these awesome belts! I currently have nothing and you should have seen what a mess I was at the WDW half carrying, tucking and pinning stuff all over myself :) I'd love a black one and am not picky about the zipper color. Thanks again!

  32. I'd love one in pink, as I have become such a pink running gal. Ha. I still love blue a lot too, so blue would also be great. I'd wear it to store all of my run snacks and gel fun stuff for my runs.

  45. I like the pink one. I would wear it for running. I have a half coming up in a few weeks and this would be perfect. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is a fantastic give away. My friends has one and let me borrow it for my last 1/2. I enjoyed it a lot. I was able to hold my phone, ID, keys and money in the main part. I like the GUs on the side. My favourite part was being able to hold my running bib on the front and not pinning it on my clothes. I think the pink/black is best since it would match everything that I wear (I did not coordinate on purpose).

  47. I would love a pink one for my sister - she's running the Disneyland half with me later this year, her first half ever! I already have one of the iFitness hydration belts and I love it and I think having her own in her fave color would be a great boost to her training!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great giveaway! I'd choose the black with the blue zipper and would use it at the Colfax Marathon this May for my phone, keys, some gels and my rescue inhaler.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've been coveting one of these. I would absolutely have to get the grey with pink zipper. I think I'd use it all the time to carry all my junk when I run in my neighborhood- ID, keys, snacks.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would use it to carry all my essentials while running my two half marathons this year (one including the Disneyland Half Marathon)!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I absolutely LOVE ifitness belts! I use them for racing to store my GU packs, ID and key. I only have a small one and would love a larger one that could hold my phone as well :) I'd love the black one with the pink zipper and would use it on my long runs and future races (which will hopefully include the Tower of Terror 10-miler and NYC Marathon!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have a double pouch ifitness belt that I love! But my 13 year old son is running his first Disney race with me this May for the Expedition Everest Challenge and I was just thinking this morning he would have to wear a fanny pack. I would so love to present him with this instead! I think he would love the black belt with the green zipper. BTW-- so glad I've found your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow! This seems to be a better option than my armband for my phone; no chaffing to worry about (unpleasant Tower of Terror 10 miler experience). I would use it for training for the Nike Women's half in DC; and purple would be a great color... Go Ravens!!
