fall·orado

n.

1. The term defining the geographic location for the season of fall in the state of Colorado. The time in which the weather begins to get cooler, white girls come out of hiding, and anything synonymous with the word “pumpkin” sells out immediately.
 
A new season = new essential products for all Colorado fit females. Babes of the Mile High City know that with drier air and higher elevation comes unique demands to stay healthy and fit. And why waste good pumpkin spiced latte money on things that are going to leave you high and dry? (Coloradical pun intended). Fret not — we at 303 have searched high and low to award the best products for the upcoming autumn season.

Here is the official 303 Magazine fit female product guide for fall 2015

Running in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon on October 18th? Or are you just hoping to take Fido on more walks this fall? Either way the SPIbelt is a necessity for every Colorado girl who wants to stay fit (and even safer) on the mountain trails or around the neighborhood.

SPIbelt (short for small personal item belt) was the first patented running belt in 2007. Do not let its small size fool you, this little guy can hold all of your stuff (even a giant iPhone 6+). Not only will it not jiggle around while you are on the move, but it can be tucked away — so in an emergency you can reach for a small self-defense item you may choose to carry. Talk about a practical and smart purchase for this season (and all others throughout the year).

Smile Sciences At Home Teeth Whitening Kit
$29 (with code “303MAG”)
1024sweet_grande

Chilling weather outdoors means you will be consuming more warm beverages. Insert coffee, hot chocolate and girls’ wine nights. Pigments from dark-colored drinks such as coffee, tea, and wine can become embedded in the cracks and ridges in teeth, and if the proper steps are not taken can cause permanent, yellowing stains.

Want whiter teeth, but don’t want to spend a ton of money and sit in a dentist’s chair for hours? At-home teeth whitening is becoming a growing trend, giving folks the opportunity to effectively whiten from the comfort of their home.

Celebs are joining in and endorsing many of these products, so which one can you trust? Smile Sciences stood out to 303 because of its reputation with customers, and promise to not cause sensitivity with whitening.

After putting it to the test we can attest that it really does work and does not, as promised, cause sensitivity.

Choose between “bubblegum” and “mint” flavored kits. They include: upper and lower trays that you can custom fit to your mouth, one syringe of FDA registered and dentist approved gel, two vitamin E sticks to clean up any excess gel left on the gums, an LED light to activate the whitening gel for faster results, and a whitening pen that maintains the results achieved. Teeth can brighten up to 10 shades whiter.

Rise Bar
$18-29 / box

protein_bar_almondhoney_130423

If you feel hungrier as temperature fall, you are not alone. Even though most people live in a climate controlled world, it is not a myth that our appetites seem to change when the days grow shorter. Researchers credit this to our primitive impulses that prompt us to stockpile calories for the winter ahead.

While it may be tempting to reach for a muffin with your latte, or a slice of pumpkin pie this Fall — do not let your primitive urges win! Instead, reach for one of these delicious Rise Bars. Crafted in small-batches, this protein bar collection is known for simple organic proteins. You can actually pronounce everything in its ingredient list. Not only are they healthy, but they are delicious (seriously, you should see how many wrappers are shoved into the cupholders in my car).

303’s Flavor Pick For Fall: Crunchy Perfect Pumpkin (pumpkin seeds, honey, dates, raisins, apricots, cranberries, amaranth, crisp rice, salt | 7g protein).

The leaves and temperatures may be starting to fall, but that does not mean that your fitness standards have to as well. Stay fit and focused this fall, so that when a cold-Colorado winter arrives you can enter into a ski-bum hibernation without any guilt.
