From Dirt Bags to Downward Dog

It is trade show season and the Action Wipes team is logging some serious miles and seriously having fun meeting up with a lot of you.  After the Reebok CrossFit Games we headed to the Outdoor Retailer Show last week and this week we are headed to IDEA World Fitness Convention in LA.

Evan Pederson Wins Dirt Bag ChallangeHow long have you gone without a shower?  That was the question we posed to the Outdoor Retailer Open Air Demo attendees to find the biggest “dirtbag” in our Dirtbags of Demo Day Action Wipes Challenge. We had hundreds of people stop by and tell us some pretty amazing stories of their outback adventures; most without any kind of body wipes or cleaning wipes, much less a shower. It was all in good fun as our Facebook pictures show, and we really enjoyed meeting some of our fans and handing out some all natural sports wipes to the crowd. The winner of $100 cash and a box of schwag went to Evan Pederson of Palmer, AK.

HumanX Gear for Fitness, Crossfit and HealthThis week we head to LA for the IDEA World Fitness Convention where you can visit the Action Wipes Booth (#945) and see the whole line of HumanX gear by Harbinger. On Saturday, HumanX will be hosting the "Perform Better. Live Better! seminar featuring nationally-recognized coaches LoJo and Simon. Space is limited to 50 people so sign up here. The IDEA show represents the one-year anniversary of the Action Wipes and Harbinger introduction and it’s the industry’s largest and longest-running education fitness experience showcasing everything from sports nutrition to Yoga. We hope to see you there.

Later this month, we’ll be sponsoring a changing room at Rebecca’s Private Idaho, “A 100 mile gravel grinder with the Queen of Pain!” The Queen of Pain, is of course, Rebecca Rusch, who is among the world’s top endurance athletes. We are proud to support her in this final stage of the SRAM Gold Rush Tour on September 1 in Sun Valley, Idaho. If you're in the area, come for a ride and stay for the fun!

And finally, on the heels of our successful dirtbag challenge, we're launching a new challenge on Instagram starting today...
