Gym chalk. It’s always been a challenge. These days more than ever.
In COVID times chalk sharing is out of the question. But chalk blocks don’t travel well. They crumble and make a mess. Much of the block ends up getting thrown away. Not so bad if you have a bucket to catch the crumbles and powder in but a bit of a problem when it’s collecting in the bottom of your gym bag.
Along comes Jedi with a solution, her friend’s new company: Midnight Lightning offers liquid chalk.
We’ve toyed with liquid chalk in the past and liked it. It coats your hands longer so you do not need to re-apply during the WOD. It travels well and leaves little mess. And in these times of constant hand washing it is reassuring to know Midnight Lightning’s chalk at 70% alcohol is about as an effective a hand sanitizer as our hand cleaning solution.
What we like better about Midnight Lightning is that rather than discard the bottles when empty and paying a hig price for the replacement, these bottles are refillable preserving both the environment and your pocket book.
The New bottle sells for $10 complete with handy carabiner. Thereafter each refill (available at the gym) is only $5. Ask your coach if you would like to purchase a bottle.
Thanks Jedi for the handy hook up!
