As a Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador, I have been provided me with a great opportunity through Amy, one of the founders of Momentum Jewelry. Today’s post is about the Momentum Jewelry’s Motivate Wrap and Foot Notes Show Charm for review in order to share with my readers. Please note that the opinions and thoughts below are my own and I did not receive compensation.
From what Amy shared, this company was developed a little over a year ago, while Amy was doing the plank in her favorite class at the gym, she looked down at her wrist and realized that she needed to see something encouraging there! She said she was struck with the inspiration for their first line of jewelry, which is the Motivate Wrap. Since then, Amy said it’s been a whirlwind – she and her co-founder, Wendy, have designed and deployed the Momentum Jewelry website, improved and expanded their line of workout-friendly products, they have traveled to fitness conferences and events across the country, and they’ve begun to establish themselves in retail markets. What really impressed me is the fact that because they believe in the importance of instilling a healthy lifestyle at an early age, 5% of their profits are donated to the national effort, Action for Healthy Kids. Founded in 2002, Action for Healthy Kids works with schools to fight the national epidemic of childhood obesity by teaching kids to live healthy, active lives.
As their website states, “Momentum offers hand-crafted, workout-friendly jewelry for fitness-focused individuals. Featuring our innovative MOTIVATE WRAP™ bracelet (patent pending). Throw us your most active move – the MOTIVATE WRAP™ will not rub, squeeze, slip or chafe. Designed by workout enthusiasts (US!), it is so comfortable you will even forget to take it off. Grab one with your favorite motivational saying and you won’t want to!”
The bracelets come in six different colors, black, olive, eggplant, cardinal red, or hot pink fabric. I’m sure you can just guess what color I picked, but if you don’t know me, I’ll tell you: I PICKED HOT PINK. The stretchy fabric wrap goes around wrist 4-6 times depending on wrist size and is hand-washable. I will say the fabric IS very soft, and it is a very nicely made and different kind of bracelet.
While they offer both rectangular and oval pendants, I chose the oval shaped pendant with the phrase “every day is a gift” because really….. isn’t it? The oval pendants are 3/4-inch x 1 3/8-inch, they’re made of aluminum, are extremely lightweight and Momentum says they will not tarnish. They have a big variety of pre-made phrases, but they do offer to make one with whatever phrase you’d like for an additional $3.00 charge.
Now, about those shoe charms -they’re called “Foot Notes” and you can either order a single charm, or they also come in pairs, one for each shoe. You can proudly proclaim whatever motivates you with these unique shoe charms! The Foot Notes slide easily onto your shoelaces where they will stay in place while you jump, kick, run, lift, dance, lunge, throw, sprint, bike, and otherwise be your sporty self! The pendants are 1/2” x 1-5/8” are aluminum rectangular pendants that are extremely lightweight and Momentum says they will not tarnish.
Overall, I think the shoe charms are very cool and there are so many choices of phrases, it was hard to pick. They are fun and I’m definitely putting them in my shoes. I can even see myself getting a few more for some of my upcoming events.
And now for the fun part! Amy has offered to give one lucky reader either the Motivate Wrap or the Foot Note.
