Fitness Favorites: A Product Guide

runner

This past week has fitness gear junkies, like myself, excited about recent product announcements from major industry players. On Tuesday, October 15, Nike announced the new Nike+ Fuelband SE. The following day, rival Adidas announced its own smartwatch, a potential competitor for the Nike+ Sportswatch GPS.

Amidst all this product buzz, I would like to share with you my favorite fitness gear that has truly motivated me to get moving and helped me reach my fitness goals. I think it’s important to note that I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies, and my brand loyalty is simply derived from years of trial and error.

MUST-HAVES

  • Brooks Ghost 6 running shoes: Since my first road race over a year ago, Brooks Ghost running shoes have provided support and durability in a variety of fun colors. I bought these in blue and yellow shortly after the Boston Marathon bombing to show my support for Boston runners. I highly recommend Marathon Sports for finding your perfect running shoe.
  • Nike Pro Essential 2.5″ compression shorts: Appropriate for lifting, running or cross-training, I’m on my way to acquiring more colors to add to my grey and black pairs.
  • Nike Element Half-Zip (currently on sale!): A long-sleeve top made with Dri-FIT material that is perfect for those cool fall days, equipped with thumbholes.
  • lululemon Swiftly Headband and Ultimate Padded Run Sock: Small investments can make a big difference.
  • iPod Shuffle: I’m not a huge fan of arm bands, which often slip or need readjusting mid-workout, This clippable and colorful iPod features Voiceover, playlists and 15-hour battery life, with storage for hundred of songs.
  • Foam roller: One of these (any brand) is necessary for those days you are too sore to make it to the gym.

WISH LIST

Also, this October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you are interested in purchasing products that will help fund breast-cancer-related research, support, and education, be sure to check out this pink-ribbon product guide.
