FlipBelt Review

Hey guys!

Since this week started off so awesomely amazing and threw all my blogging schedule off, this is not your usual Workout Wednesday post, BUT – it is fitness related.

Gonna drop some knowledge on you today πŸ™‚

Have you ever experienced the dilemma before going for a run/grocery shopping/picking up the kids/to the gym of whether or not you should bring your purse with you, or in case of workouts – what to do with all this stuff you need (car/house keys, phone, etc..) once you get to the gym?

Don’t answer, we all did. πŸ™‚

Well, I got a solution for you – FlipBelt.

I first heard about it from Carla. She mentioned on her blog (when she still had a blog…sigh) that she was using one and I clicked through to see what it was.

Shortly after that I got an opportunity to get one for free through the Fit Approach (Sweat Pink) network that I’m proud to be part of. So, I jumped at the opportunity and received a belt for free in exchange for my honest opinion about it.

So here’s the honest opinion.


Approved Stamp

Here’s what it looks like:


How about I tell you of the ways you could use this handy little thing in your every day life?


I tried wearing mine on my runs.


Now, I was a little skeptical at first – and I think that’s understandable – there’s a lot of body movement involved.

  • Will that belt slide up and down my waist as I run? Because that’s annoying.
  • Is it going to chafe?
  • Is it going to bounce?

The answers are: no, no and no!

However, you have to make sure you pick the right size – I tried both Large and Extra Large. The latter is too big for me and it did slide up and down as I ran because of that. The Large is just perfect for workouts! Stays in place, doesn’t bounce, doesn’t chafe.

So, take your time to measure your waist/hips and pick the right size belt to save you the trouble.



I love going for walks. I do not like carrying things like a purse with me or having a lot of stuff in my pockets. I do like to have my phone (mapping my walk with FitBit app) and keys with me.

FlipBelt comes super handy when it comes to walking. I liked my Extra Large FlipBelt for walking – it wasn’t as tight on my hips and stayed in place because I wasn’t moving fast.



Going to the bank, picking up kids from school/activities – tuck your phone, keys, credit cards, cash into the FlipBelt and you’re set to go.

Can you believe how awesome this thing is when you go grocery shopping? Hands – free! No need to watch that purse in your cart. Immediate reaction to that little kid of yours trying to run away from you, or perform acrobatic tricks in your cart!

That’s a life changer for moms, I’ll tell you that.

Did I get your attention now? πŸ™‚

FlipBelt provided me with their product free of charge in exchangeΒ fot my honest opinion about it. Opinions in this post are 100% my own, FlipBelt and/or Fit Approach did not tell me what to say or influence my opinion in any way.


  1. I’ve seen these before, and always thought they were genious! I on a regular day hate carrying a heavy purse in the summer. Nice to bring your phone, keys, metrocard and some cash when you head out.

  2. I need one of these belts when I workout because my stuff is all of the place and this would make it quite easier.

  3. Love my FlipBelt! Definitely need to make sure to get the right size, I had to return for a smaller one so it didn’t ride up when running. I don’t even have to Flip it when running, so I have easier access to my items. Nice review! #wowlinkup

  6. Ok it still puts me in the mindset of a fanny pack but I love the slim foot print! It actually make sense b/c I stuff tissue and keys in my sports bra where it gets MAD SWEATY!! LOLOL. You guys make this flipbelt look pretty nice.
