Attention all you active people out there reading this blog! Let's take a vote…How many of you fitness enthusiasts get really grossed out from sitting in your car seat after a really sweaty workout?? (Both of my hands are way up!!) I am here to tell you about an awesome discovery I made this month that will solve your sweaty seat dilemma, and it's called SEAT HOODY.
Let's take it back a few months to the Crossfit Atlantic Regional in Atlanta, GA. I was strolling through the vendor village when I came across the lovely Seat Hoody booth. I did not stop while I was there but I remember thinking,"HEY, that's a really awesome idea, and I need to get me one of those!" A few months passed and now we were in the middle of a HOT July in Georgia. (AKA 100 degrees in the gym with no air conditioning!) Every day I would walk out of the gym to get in my car, and I would be slipping and sliding in my sweaty seat the whole way home. It was super gross; and I tried everything from sitting on a towel, pointing all of the air vents in my direction, and rolling down the windows. Nothing seemed to help, and that's when I decided I really needed to give that Seat Hoody a try.
Fast forward to late July, and here I am 2 weeks in with my new Seat Hoody; and I can already say that it has changed my post workout mood 100%. Instead of suffering all the way home in a pool of sweat, I am now sitting comfortably on a cute, sweat absorbing Seat Hoody. The best part of the Seat Hoody (besides the fun patterns) is that it is machine washable. So whenever you feel like your cover is getting kinda grungy, just toss it in the wash J Another plus side is that it protects your legs from the seat burn after they have been baking in the sun (if you have leather seats like me). Seat Hoody is designed to slip right over your headrest and will work for any type of vehicle. It even has optional buttons on the side to prevent airbag interference.
The Seat Hoody is super comfortable, cute, and a great investment to protect your seats! On a side note: I am definitely purchasing a second cover for my passenger seat to protect it from my dog. He loves his car rides but his claws, drool, and dirty paws are taking a toll on my leather seats (OK, OK maybe I'm just looking for a reason to get another matching Seat Hoody…I know!! But you'll understand once you see how awesome they are!)
You can see in the pictures below that I have the pattern called Aqua Arrow (which I love). There are a total of 19 patterns/colors to choose from on the website www.seathoody.com , so you can find the pattern that best fits your style! The Seat Hoody retails for $48 through the website and also on Amazon (+ free shipping with Prime).
You can bet I'll be using this product from now on, and I highly recommend getting one for yourself!
If/when you purchase your seat hoody make sure to message me! Then tag @ameliahamilton93 & @Seat_Hoody on Instagram so that we can see you rocking your new cover!

For my first review I thought it would only be fitting to take a look at a company that I have been working with for quite a while now. AboutTime products have been supplementing my training for about five years. Speaking as someone with a ton of allergies and a very sensitive stomach, it wasn't until I tried AT whey protein that I was finally able to implement a protein product into my regular diet. Every other brand I used routinely gave me nausea and had way too many unnatural names that I could not pronounce in their ingredients. But that is not the case with AT products - they are something far better!
A little background on the brand - TryAboutTime is located in Pittsburgh, PA and was founded in 2008 by Sean Marszalek and Devenee Schumacher. About Time makes high quality whey protein, pre-workout, vegan protein, and healthy on-the-go snacks for the every day athlete, parents, & kids. They pride themselves on creating products that are all natural, non-gmo, gluten free, zero sugar, no artificial sugars, and no growth hormones. You can find most of their top products in many health/nutrition stores now - including whey protein, protein pancake mix, and AUX pre-workout.
This post is going to take a closer look at one of their newest products - AminoHydrate. They have 2 flavors: Orange Cream and Watermelon Lime. Their description of this new product lists 10g amino acids, 7g BCAAs, 2g citrulline, and 1g glutamine, gluten free, & full of electrolytes. The goal of the product is to help reduce protein breakdown, preserve muscle glycogen stores, and keep you more hydrated. I was so excited to try this product, because since I had previously been supplementing my training with separate amino acids and BCAAs from different companies through the years. My main concern with those products was of course quality. When AT announced they would be introducing this product, I was excited because I knew it would be great quality. After opening my package of Watermelon Lime AminoHydrate and throwing some in my shaker bottle, I was excited to discover that the powder mixed well and tasted WAY better than I had even hoped. The flavor is super light, tastes a little more like watermelon than lime, and was super refreshing. I'm excited to add this supplement to my routine and throw out my old, lower quality products I had been using for so long. Thank you AboutTime for putting an awesome new product out there!
Now for the fun part :) For a chance to a WIN a FREE tub of the TryAboutTime AminoHydrate (reg. price is $44.99) please share this post on your preferred social media page and leave comment/feedback in the space below!
