It's Too Nice Out To Exercise At The Gym
June 3, 2009
We’re in that blissful weather period between rainy and unbearably hot that makes for gorgeous late-spring outdoor workouts. On Better.tv, we’re showing you the best workout gear for your outdoor run (or brisk walk – that works too).
What To Wear
Tired of running in those weird cotton shorts/prefer something that covers your behind? Try a GymGirl running skirt – the Classic is now on sale for $10 (down from $58). Lululemon’s Run:Flow Thru Dress ($84) accomplishes the same feat, with the added bonus of looking a little like a sundress.
To get the most out of your summer stroll, tie on a pair of Reebok EasyTones ($100), which have built-in pods to destabalize your foot and encourage increased muscle activation.
Where To Store Your Stuff
If you’re married to the idea of stashing stuff in your sports bra, the Racktrap ($8) is made for you. It’s a little pocket you stick in your…rack…that keeps keys from leaving an imprint on your chest.
And, How Not To End Up On The News
With a Wellalarm, you can basically wear all of your medical and emergency contact information on your wrist (or around your neck). The jewelry (this bracelet is $150) has a telephone number and URL etched in, where you store emergency info in case you’re injured while you’re out running alone.
