Coeur d' Alene (core-da-lane), for the past decade, has hosted the Ironman triathlon, which I volunteered for just about every year that I lived there which was seven years. I adopted an appreciation for these amazing athletes and the sacrifice they put themselves through for their many, many months of training. Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride, and then a marathon of 26.2 miles. The average participant finished this ultimate endurance race in about 12 hours. I consider myself athletic, but never could I match these great athletes and their dedication to such an event— an event that stretched these men and women's physical and mental boundaries to spiritual levels.


I designed the Running Belt Max brand running belt to meet the exponential craze of people becoming involved in physical activities — not just the people of a remote northwestern town in the U.S. that no one has heard of — but folks from all over the world. Even if you just like working in the yard or taking casual strolls in the neighborhood with your dog, or if you're crazy about CrossFit, Zumba, aerobics, weight lifting— or if you're training for your first 5k or running in your 12th marathon; the Running Belt Max very well might be the perfect exercise and activites companion that you can't live without.


The Running Belt Max is made of high-quality Lycra material, which is 99% waterproof. It is rain, splash and sweat-proof, so if you're ever caught in the rain while running, or if your 20-mile bike ride has you sweating profusely; your iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus, 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note, s7, Nexus 6p, etc., and other valuable electronics will be protected from moisture. Not only will the Running Belt Max belt hold even the largest of smart phones like the iPhone 6+ and 7+ ; it also has a very handy rubberized earphone port so you can listen to your favorite tunes or if you're expecting an important phone call while outside of your home.


There are additional pouches for holding keys, money, medications, inhalers, credit cards, ID's, pepper spray, dog waste bags, etc. There are even two elastic loops that will conveniently hold sunglasses and other narrow items on either side of the smaller pouches.


The Running Belt Max brand running belt is truly a no-bounce belt, and it doesn't ride up while running like some other belts. Users tell me they sometimes forget they're even wearing it. Cyclers tell me they can hardly feel the belt while hunched forward. This is nothing like the bulky fanny packs of yesteryear.


I hope you'll consider giving my belt a try. I think the Running Belt Max could possibly be the only inanimate object that you'll find yourself falling in love with... I certainly can't live without mine.


To yours in health and fitness,

Hi - I'm Dave, the designer of the Running Belt Max. It would be a safe bet to say running, walking, hiking, biking, sking, and just being outdoors is my passion. I am either addicted to being outside or I have developed an aversion to the indoors, or both. Chances are you are more or less the same: passionate about being outdoors and exercising. Maybe you just can't seem to get enough of the great outdoors, whether it's hot or cold outside ... snowing or raining. Perhaps, just maybe, this is why you've stumbled onto this site.


I was born in North Carolina, USA— and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Before the age of 40, I became restless while living in Atlanta because there were limited outdoor activities available, so in 2005 I moved to the panhandle of Idaho. Possibly one of the most beautiful places in America is Coeur d' Alene, Idaho; with its abundant sky-blue lakes, snow-capped mountains (six months out of the year), and air so pure you'd think you're in a giant cleanroom. North Idaho is also (arguably) the fitness and outdoor capital of the USA. Nearly every household owns: a bicycle or several of them, skiing and snowboarding gear, hiking and running gear, and/or hunting gear. It's truly an outdoor paradise, and I consider it heaven on Earth, even during the 4-month winters.
