1. Running Shoes
The “barefoot running” revolution calls for a change in the traditional restrictive running shoes. These barefoot sports shoes allow the feet’s numerous muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments to be better stimulated and strengthened during every fitness activity.
2. Hydro Flask
Some water bottles tend to “sweat” and leak, however the Hydro Flask has durable insulation and a stainless steel design to keep drinks cold for more than 24 hours without sweating. It’s a perfect fit for gym bags and bike bottle holders. It also keeps hot drinks hot and will fit in most car cup holders.
3. Start Today Goal Planning Book
