Nike's Flyknit training shoes made for the gym

The Nike Free line has been at the forefront of the minimalist movement, which focuses on allowing the foot to keep its natural motion as much as possible, unencumbered by the structure of traditional shoes. The Nike Free Train Force Flyknit brings that thinking into the gym, with a breathable shoe that is great for exercise classes, lifting weights and cardio equipment. The design uses Nike's Flyknit technology to provide stability on the upper with very little material.

This fitness tool allows you to exercise anywhere

Barely a few ounces in weight and bright violet in hue, gliding discs are the fitness tool equivalent of a barre class: They seem innocuous enough - even delicate - until suddenly your abs are quaking, there's a deep burn radiating from your glutes to your toes, and you're acutely aware of muscles you didn't even realize you had. All this, and you can stash them in an average-size handbag.

Wina Sturgeon: Tips to keep you upright on the slopes

It's disappointing to be in the middle of pulling off your finest move while riding the slopes, and suddenly you've done a face-plant on your board that knocks the wind out of you. Splat! Or just as bad, you catch an edge on one of your skis, and there you are, sliding down the trail with no control whatsoever and heading towards a pile of rocks or a bunch of trees.
