Hey. I'm Cody - Owner of Active Living.
It's kind of funny. I've been working on building this store for the better part of a month, yet for some reason I've been at a complete loss for words on what to say about its opening for hours upon end.
All I can say right now is that I'm incredibly excited about everything that comes with a new venture like this, from the learning curve of the technology, to developing and sourcing the right products, to providing top-notch customer service, and everything in between.
Even the imminent failures have me excited, because I get to take each one (hopefully there aren't many!) as a learning opportunity to do something better.
Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn is famous for saying, "If you're not embarrassed by your first version of your product, you've launched too late."
Embarrassed? No. Nervous? Maybe a little bit. But screw it. It's time to launch!
Active Living is now open for business.
So What is Active Living?
Simply put, Active Living is an online store for simple and practical fitness products for your active lifestyle.
Right now, it has three main goals:
- Provide simple and practical fitness products at fair prices
- Provide a simple and aesthetically-pleasing online user experience
- Satisfy customers with every single interaction, and if not, figure out why, and fix it
With that said, here are the current product lines that are available.
Flexible Silicone Wedding Bands
If you're a CrossFit athlete, triathlete, runner, or lead any kind of active lifestyle where you're constantly removing your wedding band so you won't lose or break it (or your finger!), these silicone wedding bands are exactly what you need.
I have a $250 dollar space-metal wedding band that I no longer wear, because I wear these things every day. I should have just gotten one of these in the first place!
Currently, there are three different styles in stock:
- A thick and rugged men's band in Black, Blue, or Silver
- "The Groove" which is a lighter-weight style featuring two differentiating style grooves
- And a thin ladies band, that is currently available in Pink
These are priced well enough so you can pick up a few different ones to rotate out based on your clothes, or the occasion.
You can view all sizes and colors here in the Silicone Wedding Bands Collection
Smart Phone Armbands for iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Phones
A few weeks back as I write this, I just began training for my first half marathon, which will be the furthest distance I have ever gone.
I'm not yet much of a runner, and I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it without my iPhone telling my how far I've gone and pumping motivational music out for me.
For my first few runs, I just held onto my phone, but it got really annoying and I almost dropped it a few times from the sweat.
That's exactly why I started stocking these smart phone armbands. They're lightweight, easily adjustable, protect your phone from the elements, have enough space for your cards and cash, and provide easy access for headphones.
They fit the iPhone 6 and 6s and the Samsung Galaxy 7 perfectly.
I went out and found all sorts of great colors too, which are currently all in stock:
- Sleek Black
- Bright Red
- Royal Blue
- Bright White
- Deep Purple
- Neon Green
- Rose Pink
You can find all colors here, in the Smart Phone Armbands Collection
Premium Bluetooth Wireless Headphones
Sometimes, I feel like I spend more time fighting with the wires to headphones than I spend actually listening to music.
Investing in a good set of Bluetooth headphones was one of the best decisions I made when I started running. I wouldn't make it very far without some beats to entertain me.
I just pop them in my ears, sync them up with one button, and I'm ready to go. No angry fighting to untangle the wires to my iPhone headphones for 2 minutes.
I can also skip tracks, adjust volume, and even take calls if I need to without even touching my phone.
These work awesome for me, so I went out and found four awesome colors for you, all of which come with an extra set of buds, a wire clip, and a premium micro USB charger.
These are currently in stock and available in these colors:
- Bright Red
- Neon Green
- Electric Blue
- Sleek Black
You can find all colors here, in the Premium Bluetooth Headphones Collection.
