Now that the sun is shining, the time for outdoor workouts has started! But how often do you find yourself cursing because you don't know what to do with your phone/mp3 player? Those workout armbands are pretty expensive. Which is pretty useless really, cause it's so easy to make your own band.
How? I'll gladly show you how!
As an iPhone user I can tell you that Apple products and products for Apple are incredibly overpriced. So buying accessories for my iPhone is a no-go. In that case you have to be a creative little minion. And sometimes the solution is closer than you think. A foot closer (badum tssss).
Let's get started!
Find a sock. You can use a sock with a nice print that matches with your workout outfit. I know how women think. Don't worry, I won't judge.
You have to get a tube, so check where you can cut the sock at the bottom. Don't cut too high or you'll get a short band and then your phone won't fit in it.
Cut that sock like your life depends on it.
Yeah that's it, actually. You're done now, but I'll show you how it works, just in case.
Put it on your arm.
That's pretty much it! You can also use a legwarmer. In that case you only need to fold it around your arm and you're done. What I like about this method is that it's within reach. You can even recycle an old sock or a sock that lost his soulmate. Or use a new sock that you specially bought for this cause, because you like the print/colour. Either way, it's still a lot cheaper than buying the actual armband. You're welcome.
Where do you keep your phone when you're working out?
