Best Buy and yurbuds Get You Motivated With A 20% Discount, And A Gift Card Too

Disclosure:  The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

As a music blogger & music fanatic, I'm highly motivated by the bands whose music I love.   So I jumped at the opportunity to work with Best Buy and the WOLF Bloggers again, on a new campaign.  I've always worked out to music, and I write to music, do housework to music, and drive the kids all over town to music.  Best Buy and yurbuds want to motivate our readers with a 20% discount, so there's an extra incentive for YOU to get motivated by music too!

**ChiIL Out with ChiIL Live Shows and get 2 cool offers from yurbuds & Best Buy:

1.  20% off all yurbuds products at Best Buy both online and in-store. Online yurbuds coupon code is yurbuds20off:**     

2. Also enjoy a $5 Best Buy Gift Card when you purchase a qualifying Health and Fitness product at a Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store: Both offers are valid 1/19/14 - 2/22/14.

Every year a zillion people vow to get fit, and flood the gyms in January, then fall off to "pizza on the couch land" by February 1st.  That's why I've begun to start my fitness resolutions then!   If you slacked off or cynically don't make resolutions, or if you did and things are flagging... this one's for you.

Music is a major part of my 2014 fitness plan.  I have a cool treadmill desk and an Android app, "Walking Mate".   I've been known to keep on exercising and go beyond my original goals when the music's great, sometimes without even noticing.  

No Strings Attached:

While blogging and jogging, I have been known to entangle my treadmill tether, my laptop and external drive power cords & firewire, and my head phones into a gordian knot as I shuffle things around my work space.   So, I'm particularly stoked to try out yurbuds NEW Wireless Earphone!

Studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%.  Unfortunately, most people miss out on those benefits because their earphones hurt and fall out during active use.  *Anyone else notice the multiple ear monitors that fell out during rigorous dance numbers at the Grammys last night?!

yurbuds was founded in 2008 by an Ironman Triathlete and a 24-time marathoner in response to that problem. Our products are ergonomically designed for comfort and exceptional fit, while providing best-in-class audio quality and durability.  yurbuds is passionate about serving our customers and our community.  We listen to and learn from our athletes to produce solutions to their needs.  We are dedicated to innovating and creatively changing the industry of sport audio.  Our goal is to empower athletes through exceptional products and services to help them to push past their barriers, reach new personal bests, and #neverstop.

I'll be tweeting about my progress to @BestBuyWOLF #GetMotivated so feel free to jump in and add your own inspiring fitness/music story to the mix.
