Keeping Fit With Music by Using a Running Phone Belt

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Yet because of work schedules, I often find that the only time I have to visit the gym, is during the peak hours, along with everyone else.

This is where my cell phone comes in to save my day (and sanity); I simply plug in my headphones and turn up the volume for 45 minutes until I am safely out of the gyms doors.
