Text Box: As a personal trainer (and someone who loves to try new, fun things to help me live healthier) I’m constantly running across products that are really unique and valuable, but that most people have never heard of.  I’ve created this page to introduce you to some of my favorites- they each offer a something special to help you eat right, exercise more effectively or stay safe on the road.  I’ll be expanding this section in the future to introduce you to some of my favorite books, foods and informational websites.

‘You Bar’  Custom energy bars made just for you!

Energy bars have become a diet staple for most people- they’re convenient, portable and make the perfect pre or post workout fuel, as well providing a healthy meal option when fast food and vending machines are the only game in town.  But there are a lot of bars out there that are best left on the shelf!  Some are little more than candy bars in disguise; others are so full of processed, artificial ingredients that their label reads more like a science experiment than food!

I’ve been on a quest for the ‘perfect’ energy bar for years- something that’s made with real ingredients, like nuts and dried fruit, but that still tastes great. I heard about You Bar and had to give it a try.  You create your own custom bar on their website by choosing your favorite ingredients like organic nuts, grains, natural sweeteners, dried fruits, chocolate chips and more.  They take you through the creation of your bar step by step, so you customize the type of protein used and how much, if you want extra fiber or a vitamin infusion, lots of fruit or just a little. Plus, you get to see the bar’s nutritional content as you go!  For $40 you get a dozen bars with your own personalized label.  They’re made fresh right here in Los Angeles and shipped out within a few days.  I created two different bars for myself; a pre- or post-hike bar with almonds, dried apricots and agave nectar, and also an on-the-go breakfast bar with chocolate chips, dried cranberries and a vitamin infusion to start my day off right.  They're both delicious and super fresh tasting!

The people at You Bar are incredibly helpful and friendly… if you have any questions about the best recipe for your custom bar, just give them a call!  They’ve made thousands of different recipes and can help you create the tastiest bar possible.

As a bonus to all my friends out there I ’m offering a 5% discount when you order your own custom bar.  Just enter ’Debbie Aleman’ in the coupon code section and your discount will be automatically deducted from your total.

‘Road ID’ Personal Identification Gear      I think this inexpensive piece of ‘jewelry’ is one of the most valuable safety items a person can own!  I know a lot of active people (runners especially) that head out the door with absolutely no identification in case of an emergency… I’m guilty of this myself!  We like to travel fast and light and a lot of workout clothing doesn’t have pockets to carry ID.  Road ID is your perfect solution- a way to be safe without carrying any additional weight.  “If you are a runner, cyclist, triathlete or just a person who doesn’t sit on the couch all day, Road ID is for you.  This awesome piece of gear not only looks good but it could save your life.  In the event of an accident, if you can’t speak for yourself, your Road ID will. It’s not just a piece of gear - it’s peace of mind.” Road ID is available in 5 different styles, including wrist or ankle bands, shoe tags and ‘dog tag’ style necklaces.  Averaging $20 to $25 each, it’s the best investment in your safety you can make!  Click on the link below to find out more information on Road ID personal identification gear and other safety products.
