Are You Prepared for the Next Doce?

ActiveForever-logoIt’s an ancient old adage but it’s true. It’s much better to be safe than sorry. As evidenced by the ongoing, 7,000 acre plus ‘Doce’ wildfire in Northern Arizona, it’s impossible to predict when, where and how, disaster will strike. How will you respond?

Add the unpredictability of an aging national infrastructure and it becomes clear that it’s perfectly reasonable to want to take extra precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Here at ActiveForever we recognize this so we carry the very affordable and very well equipped, 25 Person Bulk Sturdy Metal First Aid Cabinet.

How Active Halo GPS Can Benefit Your Business

ActiveForever-logoActiveHalo GPS is the world’s smallest GPS tracking device used for real time location reporting and is ideal for business uses. Our hi-tech GPS device has several practical business applications.

The ActiveHalo GPS tracking system combines the worldwide reach of GPS with our easy to use web-based portal.

The ActiveHalo GPS system has a wide range of features to track and monitor your employees and fleet equipment.

The benefits of using ActiveHalo GPS as a profitable business tool are only limited by your imagination.

Employee Safety

Every business owner knows that their employees are their most valuable asset. Our ActiveHalo GPS services can be used by any company who needs to keep an accurate record of where his or her employees are located.

 The ActiveHalo GPS will give your company’s employees an extra layer of security.

When employees travel to remote areas as a part of their job, i.e.; fleet managers, delivery drivers, construction workers, and sales people you can easily find their last location.

When traveling in rural areas the smallest accident can quickly turn into a life-threatening situation especially when weather conditions are less than ideal. In this situation the nearest emergency assistance is usually miles away.

Employees appreciate the peace of mind the ActiveHalo GPS offers. They know if they ever find themselves in an emergency situation, company personnel can help them immediately by broadcasting direction, speed and position to emergency responders.

The ActiveHalo GPS SOS feature activates with the  press of the “SOS” button, located on the front of the ActiveHalo GPS unit. The SOS feature allows responders to find you with pinpoint accuracy.

Exercise for Reduction of Holiday Stress

aflogo-96x96Physical activity increases the heart rate and enhances fitness. People who engage in exercise are less likely to develop many serious diseases. An inactive lifestyle doubles the risk of having a heart attack.

Exercise is an excellent way to improve not only physical health but mental health as well.

The stress of the holidays can cause even the most balanced among us to feel out of sorts. So drop the candy cane and hop on the stationary bike or rowing machine, STAT.

The Stamina AVARI Conversion II Rower Recumbent Bike brings you the best of both worlds in one convenient, fold-able  space-saving package. Molded-foam seat and back support with 15 available positions and 8 different resistance levels make it easy to ensure a customized workout for any body.

Benefits of physical activity

Cool or Heat Mattress Pad is Just Right

aflogo-96x96We’ve all been there and would most likely be willing to attest that sometimes a blanket—no matter how wonderful that particular blanket may be—just doesn’t cover it.

The Cool or Heat Sleep Pad from ActiveForever may look innocent enough, but in reality, these simple cushions  are highly functioning, sleep-inducing machines.

At 38 inches wide and 75 inches long, they work as a personalized mattress pad infused with safe, thermoelectric technology. These soft platforms arm the individual with the power to manipulate the nighttime climate to their hearts desire—providing cool or heat—without infringing on the temperature rights of another person.

Oh sure, we quickly forget winter’s stinging chill while showered in mellow, mid-summer rays. With December on the decline, those diplomatic degrees are nothing more than memories. Now we seek refuge from the nip that breaks the clothing barrier, past the skin to nestle within the disconsolate sinew of our very bones.

Then, once the weather thaws again, these versatile mattress covers bestow a deep relaxing cool; negating the need for thermostat adjustments; making it a money saver too.

Winning Winter Tips

What comes to mind when you think of healthy foods?

Green tea, broccoli, bran flakes? of course. But hot cocoa?

According to CNN.com Health, the rich sweet goodness in a cup is right up there when it comes to a winning winter diet. That’s some welcome news! Looks like we’re doing things right after all. So drink up, but you might want to hold off on the marshmallows… At ActiveForever, we’re always thinking about your health and ours, so thought we’d bring you this informational little blurb to start your day off right.

While we’ve got you in a health-oriented state of mind, be sure to check out our luxurious skin care products in honor of National Healthy Skin Month. There’s nothing like showing the harsh winter weather who’s boss by pampering your largest and arguably most precious organ this time of year. Women especially need to take heed as they have a thinner, drier dermis than that of their male counterparts. Barrier creams reinforce the skin’s natural shield and prevent precious moisture from exiting the skin’s surface.

‘Tis the season, so all of our winter products are moving fast, especially where attire is concerned. Our collection of heated and insulated clothing is material proof that you really can be stylish and comfortable at the same time.

Also, be sure to pick up your copy of our Essential Gifts catalog while supplies last!

Give the gift of health this season!

So, grab some walnuts, but just a few, (they are rich in fat,) the good fat, but still… and shop healthy!

Gearing up for Black Friday

It’s here folks!

Well… almost. Because if it were, you wouldn’t be reading this. You’d be running around  throwing elbows at the old lady standing between you and the best deals in town.

I’m talking about that which has worked it’s way into our national psyche as perhaps the most aggressive holiday of the year. The cultural phenomenon itself, Black Friday.

Here at ActiveForever, we’ve been preparing for this day for months. Parsing through our aisles and aisles of inventory, bringing down prices on some of our most coveted items. And we’ve done it all in appreciation of you, our wonderful customers.

Snow Wolf Wovel Snow Shovel

Take a look at our Discovery Digest. We’ve reduced our prices on great gift items like cold-weather gloves, the Huggie Buddy Heated Blanket you can wear, motorized massagers, yard equipment, and of course, the famous “Snow Wolf Wovel Snow Shovel.” This handy device makes once stubborn snow wish it never darkened your door in the first place.

Jeanie Rub Massager

People love our soothing facial and skin clarifying systems, and our popular exercise stations and whole body vibration machines are perfect for those who want to start their New Year’s resolutions off right.

There’s even cool stuff kids love like the Trikke T7 Convertible Kids Carving Vehicle.

Trikke T7 Convertible Kids Carving Vehicle

Everything is 20 to 75 percent off, and and Shipping is Free!

We know this consumer holiday can reduce otherwise perfectly mild people to fisticuffs; but that is only because trying to satisfy everyone on your list can be enough to force you to put off retirement, indefinitely.

Huggie Buddy Heated Blanket

We’ve got Black Friday deals going on all week. So act now, these fab items will never be cheaper!

Knock that Cold out… Cold!

If you are anything at all like us here at ActiveForever, you are a mere mortal who is wont to fall prey to the common cold and flu from time to time.

It’s even more maddening when, to top it all off, you were a good little soldier and got your flu shot. Confound those blasted germs! (We’ll get you yet… *shakes fist*)

But until that day comes when we, as a species, finally overcome the cold and flu, ActiveForever would like to remind you that we are standing shoulder-to-shoulder here in the virus trenches with you and we’ll never leave. Well… we may have to turn our heads to cough or sneeze from time to time, but other than that we are here to help.

To that end, we thought we’d share a few of our cold and flu season survival kit, must-haves.

We’ll update this list frequently, but for today, we’d thought we’d start with one of our faves:

It’s the Slanket Blanket with Sleeves! These cold weather staples are a superior, long-lasting brand and they come in soo many pretty colors! We like the “Ruby Wine” one pictured below, but just in case you don’t, there’s Apricot, Texas Tea, Moss Green, Hunter Green, Castlerock, (a.k.a. grey) Princess Armor Pink (!) and more!

Enjoy! and Gesundheit!!
