No Gym Required Review and $50 off Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)



So, the holiday season is defiantly in full swing, and it’s non-stop hustle and bustle running to purchase last minuet gifts and things to cook for the upcoming holiday meals right? Well if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time that I am currently on a mission to drop some weight and get in shape before trying to have another baby, so I find this time to get a little more time to burn some calories, walk a little further and make the most of all the hustle and bustle!!! I’ve had a product that has made burning the extra calories while doing all the holiday shopping at the mall or at the grocery store super easy and I can get a better workout without even thinking about it just by putting on my new favorite pair of shoes from No Gym Required!!

About No Gym Required (Taken From Website):

NGR™ / No Gym Required™ was born at the height of the 2008 Recession and Credit Crunch from the idea that it shouldn't be expensive to get in shape. There are gyms all around us and each of us has a beautiful, healthy, and successful person inside us. Sometimes we just need a little help bringing it out. .

We're not saying "don't go to the gym". What we are saying is that you don’t need a gym, an expensive machine, or a personal training to get in shape. You don’t even need complicated programs or to set aside hours a day to improve your health. All you need to improve your lifestyle is a commitment to eat well and spend 15-30 minutes a day being healthy. And for that you can use your body and the environment around you.

NGR™ / No Gym Required™ is, in every sense, about helping you do this. NGR™ / No Gym Required™ is a philosophy, a mantra, a way of thinking and living. Yes we have products and offer services which will help you along the way but that is not what we are about. NGR™ is a lifestyle choice to get in shape: No Gym Required™. If you come to our site and only visit our Fitness Blog, and this helps you workout then we've done our job! If you want to do more, well that's just fine with us.

The best gyms in the world are everywhere around us and the No Gym Required™ mantra is build to help you find them, teach you how to use them, and give you tools to get more out of them. All you need to do is decide.

We look forward to having you take the journey to a better lifestyle with us.

NGR™ / No Gym Required™ Team
Anytime. Anywhere. No Excuses.

My Thoughts:

I was sent a pair of the NGR Jennifer (Lime/White) shoes from NGR to review and I have to say after reading about them via their website, I was quite intrigued and couldn’t wait to get them in and try them out!!! Once they arrived at my door, which didn’t take long at all once I let them know my size, I immediately put them on to try them out!! Now, since they run a ½ size smaller than the shoes that you would normally wear you need to order a ½ size bigger than your shoe size so I normally wear a 6 ½ so I got a 7 and they fit perfect and they were very comfortable!

These shoes are actually two shoes in one, they come with two different midsoles to choose from when you order: the light midsole which you use for vigorous activity and the heavy midsole that you use for your everyday activities and walking. Changing the midsoles is super easy all you have to do is remove the midsole that is in the shoe and then replace it with the other super easy and takes less than a minuet to do so it would be super easy to wear your NGR shoes to the gym and change from the heavy midsole to the light midsole before working out to maximize your fitness even more!

I have been wearing these shoes daily for the last 3 weeks or so and I LOVE THEM!!!! I couldn’t imagine them actually working as they claimed on the website so I was defiantly a skeptic but since wearing them and actually beginning to see results I am so loving these shoes, they make getting the extra calories burnt during the day even when I don’t get a chance to get to a gym or get my nightly jog super easy and I have already begin seeing results. Now, normally I would never tell my weight but I’m so thrilled with my results that I will be happy to share my progress!!!! Before I received my NGR Shoes I was holding pretty steady at 172 lbs and that was watching what I ate and jogging around our neighborhood every afternoon, but now since wearing the shoes daily with the heavy midsoles I’m down to 168 lbs, so as you can imagine I’m thrilled!!! I wear them everywhere and during everything I do and I am still watching what I eat and making sure I’m eating healthy foods but the shoes has really helped me burn the extra calories that need to be burnt!!!

Bottom Line:

If you ask me these shoes are amazing!!! I absolutely love them and everything about them from the color (which I’m loving) to the interchangeable midsoles and how extremely comfortable they are, they have really changed the way I look at wearing shoes on a daily basis!! I wear them daily no matter where or what I’m doing even if it’s just to do my daily household chores and I have defiantly seen results from them, I’m not saying the pounds are just falling off but adding these in with my regular diet and exercise I’ve noticed a change and I’m loving it.

If you are looking for a new addition to your current diet or workout routine, or maybe you are looking to add something to help burn calories when you can’t make it to the gym, I’m totally recommending the awesome shoes from No Gym Required!!! I’m sure your going to love them as much as I do!!!
