Welcome to Empower
Empower is the answer to fitness sites that have people who look perfect and probably even smell perfect. Empower is a community of real women who want to feel better in their skin, look better in their clothes, and feel brighter in their brains. We're about healthy not hip, fitness not perfection, and strength not guilt.
We saw a real gap between the idealized woman and the woman who works, the woman who has a family, and the woman who juggles everything. A real woman who can't spend her valuable time in a gym.
We're here to educate, motivate, entertain, and inspire you to set and reach your goals. Our products are fun and a little bit quirky, and they get results. Our routines are doable, shareable, and even portable.
Join us and turn that energy you're wasting trying to be someone else's idea of perfect into positive, transforming power.

Empower Weighted Vests for Women
Burn more calories in less time with Empower Weighted Vests for Women. These convenient vests add hands-free resistance and weight to physical activities, including walking, running, hiking, biking, cardio, CrossFit training, HIIT, gardening, and housework. They can also help build bone density for women with osteoporosis.
Designed to fit a woman's figure, each Empower Weighted Vest has a contoured shape with sand sewn into the vest to evenly distribute weight over your torso. The ladies' weighted workout vests are made from soft, stretchy fabric and have side straps that adjust for waist sizes from 24 to 48 inches. Clips keep the weighted vests in place during workouts to prevent chafing. A convenient pocket with elastic closure is great for small items and holds small cell phones. Reflective accents on the front and back of the weighted exercise vests help you appear more visible in low-light conditions.
Note: Any person who is more than 30 pounds overweight should not use a weighted fitness vest. A weighted vest can boost calorie burn, but it can also increase injury risk. Going too heavy can put excessive stress on your joints and cause injury.

I like that that vest has closures on both sides which helps with a secure fit. The crossed front is ideal for a female body, as weights squishing one's chest is undesirable. The cellphone holder is a mesh panel near the right closure. It is fairly useless, unless you have a very tiny phone. You could, however, use it for something else, like a key or ID, if you need to carry that stuff around.
I have used the vest for a couple of weeks, jogging for 45 minutes to an hour each use. I find it very comfortable. The straps allow for as snug a fit as you'd like. They can tend to loosen as you jog. I tried tying them which didn't work. I found that leaving them loose and then simply tugging on one while jogging instantly tightens it up. Not a big issue. I have had no issue with leaking sand and the vest appears sturdy enough. The only downside to this vest is that there's no option to increase the weight but at this price point that is reasonable.
This vest has been a great addition to my cardio workouts. It has contributed positively to my fitness and I hope to use it for some time before upgrading to a heavier vest.
I didn't think it would be too durable because it was only covering the top back, but it's quite good. At first, it didn't feel heavy, but after having it on for almost a whole day, you can tell the difference from when you have it on and when you don't have it on.
The vest is very easy to pull over/put on. The straps are a little cheap compared to the rest of the weight vest, but I'm sure it'll be okay. This fitness weight vest says it helps with:
1. Boosting stamina
2. lose weight
It's too early to say if it helps with losing weight, but it really does boost my stamina. Without it, I feel more sluggish and less motivated to exercise, but with the vest on (because it's physically heavy), I feel motivated to exercise longer.
Also, it is even better to exercise with the vest because you burn more calories. I tracked my calories and with the vest, I burned at least a good 350 more calories -- which may seem small, but to me, it's a huge step. Considering, I walk around my neighborhood and walk around the trails/park (that in itself is about a 2-3 hour workout).
- just the right amount of heavy
- fits well
- buckles clip on nicely
- I don't like the straps. They're kind of thin and not as durable as the rest of the vest and buckles, so I'm kind of worried about the straps.
- Not sure if it's supposed to reach right below the bra line or right above the stomach.. maybe it's cause I'm taller (5'8"), but I feel like it only targets the shoulders and back fat (which is totally fine, just wanted an overall upper body fitness vest).
So far, I'm enjoying this. Although I'm having some upper back problem/aches lately. Not sure if it's because of the vest or my out-of-shape-fat-body.
