Power Balance Review and Giveaway

"I don’t really do a lot of testimonials, but this really works! I came across Power Balance when someone did the test on me. That night, while playing for the Phoenix Suns, there were about three of my teammates with the product on and we won that game by 57 points! I kept feeling something when I wore the bracelet, so I kept wearing it. When I took it off I went back to normal. I’ve been wearing the bracelet ever since. I want to do everything to get the slightest advantage; wristbands, necklaces, t-shirts, band-aids, everything and anything we can get our hands on. I’m here to tell you it works!”
-SHAQUILLE O'NEAL



I had never heard of power balance until just a few weeks ago. I was watching an NBA basketball game and noticed one of the players wearing a bracelet. I asked Sam, my boyfriend, if he knew what the bracelet was or if he had heard of it. He looks at me and says, "of course I have! It's the coolest thing ever!" I asked him what he meant by that, and he said that a lot of elite athletes wear power balance bracelets to give them an extra edge. 

Now, I'm a cautious person when it comes to things that promise better health, happiness, etc. especially when celebrities wear them, talk about them, etc. The next few days, I found myself wondering if the bracelets really did work. I went on their website and saw interviews and tests of athletes saying how well the bracelets worked for them. I contacted power balance and wanted to know if I could review a bracelet for myself, and they said "sure!"


How Does the Power Balance Bracelet Work?

"Power Balance is based on the idea of optimizing the body’s natural energy flow, similar to concepts behind many Eastern philosophies. The hologram in Power Balance is designed to resonate with and respond to the natural energy field of the body."

I'm not sure who was more excited about reviewing the bracelet, me or Sam. When I got the bracelet in the mail, I was expecting it to be a little big for me (I have tiny wrists), but found it fit me perfectly! I got the neon orange bracelet, which is great because my favorite team is the Phoenix Suns (I know, how appropriate that I chose Shaquille O'Neal's quote about beating them). Right off the bat, Sam wanted to wear it and go play basketball with it on. I told him, that I had to try out the power balance bracelet first, and that I wanted to perform the tests for myself. 

There are three main things that the power balance bracelet is supposed to help. The bracelet helps you with balance, strength, and flexibility. After performing all three tests for myself, I found myself a believer. It DID help with my balance, I FELT stronger, and I was even MORE flexible. Sam loves it so much, that from the time I took it off he's been wearing it. If you're an athlete and want to step up your game, or even if you want to improve your balance, strength, or flexibility, this bracelet is for you!

I have always wondered about these bracelets, but was pretty skeptical. So it's nice to read a review done by a 'regular person'! Their collection of pendants are neat too, I like their sterling silver ones the best.

This is so, so cool. Lately, I've been finding that I just don't have the energy to do much most days. I feel very lethargic...and I have to force myself to clean, or go to the gym. (Yep, been to the Dr and had work-ups, nothing wrong so far).

I would LOVE to try this and see if it helps me at all!
