'Fit' for the Under the Tree
Fitness is foremost on the minds of Americans and our interest tends to peak in the new year, which makes the holidays a perfect time to take a look at exercise related offerings to help loved ones to keep those resolutions.
Here are some options from apparel to trackers to enhance their workouts.
Polar Vantage M
Geared toward athletes focused on improving their performance, this training watch can be customized to more than 130 sports. It provides metrics that guide athletes to their ideal amount of training – informing them when they’re under- or over-training. In addition to insight into personal performance, workload and recovery management, the device uses three sensors to provide an accurate heart rate. Coaches can add to the workout plan and view the wearer’s data.
Alignmed Posture Shirt
Alignmed posture enhancing garments accelerate your workout results. They help your muscles work, even when at rest. Pro athletes use them while playing, for protection and recovery.
The hollow weighted ActivMotion Bar is partially filled with ball bearings that shift dynamically within, causing more stability and core muscles to work as the bar is being lifted. The result is better balance, more core strength and higher calorie burn since more muscles are working to stabilize the shifting bar.
The GoBe2 counts digested calories automatically, as well tracks heart rate, steps, sleep, and hydration; providing deeper insight into the quality, quantity, frequency, and duration of your nutrition, rest and stress.
