Hanging Out on a Friday

So this is yet another Friday where I'm going to be sending y'all over to our Product Review page. This week I'm going to talk about... well, I'll leave you in suspense for a moment or two. But this mysterious thingy promises to replace a home gym and "provide everything you need to build strength, increase your flexibility, spot-train, and fit in a comprehensive, healthy workout anytime you want, anywhere you want."

Sound intriguing? Well just hang on a moment...

Before I send you along for the review, you might be wondering: but where's the Friday giveaway? Well, next week we got more stuff, but this week your best bet is probably to head over for the $100 in free groceries you can win at the Juice. And yeah, you gotta register (once) but then you're good for other ongoing Blogher giveaways too, including laptop computers, $1000 gift cards, etc. Oh, and if you have any interest in clothes swapping, or dressing your kids on the cheap, the theme at the Juice this week was "swap parties!" However, being fashion-impaired, I weighed in instead on house swapping and wife swapping. (And, um, yeah it's a paid gig but I'm feeling a little lonely over there so if anyone stops by and says hi you will earn my eternal gratitude!)

So have any of you guessed from my italicized hints what the fitness product I got to try out, or do you feel like I left you dangling? Well, strap on your seat belts, because I'm going to tell you what I thought of the TRX Suspension Training system over at our Product Page.

And have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I swear that contraption would break and I'd go flying and injure myself, I know everyone says it's so sturdy, but I'm telling you, it would happen to me. I'm that klutzy!

  2. I really, really wanted to comment on your house-swapping post, but Blogher insists there are already too many bag ladies over there, and I am not smart enough this morning to figure out a new name that you would recognize as being me! Sigh.

    I wanted to say that I would willingly swap houses with you - you know how to drive a tractor, don't you? :)

  3. Oh no, Bag Lady!!! I'm so sorry! There is only one Real Bag Lady, and that is you.

    Thank you so much for trying. And if you ever want to try again, just let me know your "handle" and I'll remember its you.

    I don't think I'm qualified to handle your ranch, plus I'd hate to go up there and miss seeing you! Someday will have to make it there...

  4. You and the Lobster are welcome any time! It really would only add a few weeks to your trek across the continent.... :)

  5. I had a look at the new contraption, left a comment, and came back. As you can see I'm overflowing with brilliance and insight at the moment. Sigh.
    I was going to comment on the swapping, but I can't recall my BlogHer id. I have it written some place.

  6. THX for this giveaway! I commented over there BUT I enter this one wherever it is!

  7. I gotta agree with moonlight dancer on this one. That thing just looks like a 911 call waiting to happen for me. Enjoy your weekend too!

  8. Love the review. I have always wanted something like that but never knew where people got them. Thanks!

  9. I don't think I want the TRX thingie nearly as much as I want a prehensile tail. (It's all your fault that I am now dissatisfied with my body!)
