You were made to move. Get in the zone with the BackBeat FIT


When it comes to your workout, nothing gets in your way. You’re unstoppable, you have your own personal fitness journey and you want to get it done. For some people, active fitness is a way of life– working out 4-5 times a week and driving to BE good at a physical activity beyond just the potential for feeling good. For others, it might be cross-training alongside a run 2-3 times a week or making time for a workout in local gyms while on the move for business travel. Or perhaps its simply enjoying a casual lower impact fitness activity such as walking through your neighborhood after work.

No matter what your fitness goals are, whether it be going that extra mile or winding down the day, the challenge of keeping motivated is real. For many, putting in the time comes more easily, but some of us need to find little mental hacks to keep focused.

As we all know, today’s technology is now more accessible through personal devices such as smartphones that offer a range of different mobile applications. Modern smartphones are used every single day to play music using apps which have replaced the older technology of the 1990s and early 2000s.

Being able to quickly access a song playlist when you want to via phone apps is an amazing advancement of the last decade. Sometimes it is one song that you want to hear to lift your spirits and how cool is it to just press a button and hear the song from your playlist that you’re thinking about? It isn’t any different when you’re working out. Listening to your personal music can lift your spirits to motivate you during active fitness – it doesn’t matter whether you enjoy stomping hip-hop or raucous rock – getting in the zone is easy. But what is the link that connects your music to your device and subsequently to your workout? Could it be that audio device you never thought of?

Engineered for sport, wireless headphones can help keep you moving. Whether you’re breaking your personal best on the track or hitting the streets for a stroll, fuel your workout each single time with crisp sound delivered by the Plantronics BackBeat FIT series. They connect to different devices, they’re comfortable, they stay in place and can even handle a little sweat and moisture.

The BackBeat FIT family gives you a choice of sport headphones or earbuds. Choose the style that suits your needs — in and outside of the gym. Here’s a little more information about Backbeat options available right here in South Africa:
