Turbo Tots!

 

 
My sister sent me this Facebook video last week. 6 little girls in motocross helmets were lined up on tiny bicycles behind the starting gate of a race. The clock counted down, gate dropped, and like bullets they took off, with one girl quickly surging to an early lead. Wearing pink leggings and a skirt, her pigtails streaming behind under her helmet, she and the other girls sprinted the straightaways and slid around turns — running, not pedaling, on what are known as balance bikes. My jaw dropped open as I watched them cross the finish line, and I found myself replaying it – again, and again, and again.

Forget training wheels. Balance bikes have become the new way to teach your kid how to ride a bike – and get into competitive racing! Pushing with their feet, balance bikes are pedal-less and low enough to the ground so that kids gain confidence learning how to coast – and balance – on two wheels before they graduate to pedals. Strider has become the biggest selling manufacturer of these balance bikes with over 1.6 million bikes sold and distributed in over 75 countries.

The Strider Cup World Championship and racing series are held across the US and all over the world. With both competitive and non-competitive events, Strider bike races are created to be fun and positive experiences for the entire family. With 2-and-under, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-year-old classes – it’s huge! And as I watched these little girls haul ass around that track, all I could think was ‘Where was this when I was growing up?’

Daniel Arsham: Sport Relics

 

CRYSTAL RELIC 001 

Released earlier this month was Daniel Arsham’s Crystal Relic 001 Yankees Cap, a limited edition of 500. Inspired by 18th century archeological objects made of crystal, this to-scale cast resin replica follows two earlier Yankees baseball cap editions created by Arsham in 2016.

Arsham is one of the most prominent and influential contemporary artists whose editions sell out within moments of their release. With a cult-like following, new editions from this artist garner a buzz similar to a hot sneaker drop, and often from a similar demographic. Read More

 

Could Too Much Exercise Make You Fat?

 

Collage Images Martin Rusch/Trunk Archive

 
Keto diet, 10 Day Challenge, Celery Juice… it seems like everyday a new nutrition trend takes the wellness scene by storm. Some of it’s legit and some it’s BS, but we wanted to get the scoop on all to share with our readers. Meet Sarah Wragge, our nutrition wiz, who every month is going to give us the real deal on a variety of different health trends.

Sarah Wragge is a holistic nutritionist and wellness coach who has lived on both sides of the health spectrum. After a 15-year career in advertising, Sarah found herself fed up with steak and martini dinners, and feeling worn out. Having always been drawn towards wellness and nutrition, she ditched the corporate life and decided to make her passion her career — with a particular focus on designing health and nutrition regimens for those same busy execs. What we love is her practical approach to integrating wellness into real life.

One of the buzziest nutrition topics you hear about right now is “over-exercise”. The fitness obsessed — or you might say addicted — daily doubling on SoulCycle classes, going from a cardio to a strength class, working out every day with no rest days off (guilty, as charged). And yet, many of these people are not losing weight. In fact they find the opposite. “I don’t understand… I’m eating so well”, they say, “Why am I getting fat?” Read More
