Phone holder for the gym



Recommended Posts

Hey, fitness buffs! I need some advice for holding onto my phone during my workouts. Cardio & weight training. I HAVE TO listen to music constantly so I download all my playlists to my phone. All that to say, I'm not looking for music player technology recommendations, just a way to hang onto my phone.

I've tried wearing it in my bra [yuck] and tucking it into my weight belt in front [connection issues] Arm bands don't appeal to me because A. Batwings and B. Friction during arm movements. Any good ideas out there?

I have wireless headphones so location on my body isn't too much of an issue.

Heard good things about running belts, they hold all kinds of things, are comfy (don’t know if they would cause connection issues) but they have them on Amazon for relatively inexpensive prices. Hope you find something that works!

Running belts are great. Spandex type fabric you can hide them under your shirt.

If you don't like the feeling of a belt around your waist, try the roosport magnetic pouch. The magnets are surprisingly strong. You can clip it on anytype of waistband. You can put the pocket that holds your phone outside or inside your pants/shorts/jeans. They are great when you travel to keep passports, keys, cell phone and cards.

I was using a simple Water proof neck strap pouch for electronic devices, and Bluetooth - when running.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
