Made for mountaineering, glacier glasses are designed to provide extra protection from the sun’s rays at altitude, intensified by extreme conditions. Their side shields keep the snow’s reflection out, and add a cool style element that have made them the sunglass of the season – even at sea level!

In late September, Degree Deodorant launched the #TrainersforHire Campaign, an initiative for of National Disability Employment Awareness Month challenging the fitness industry to hire trainers with disabilities. The kick-off was an inclusive pop-up cycling class in New York City’s Flatiron Plaza, led by eight-time Paralympic Track & Field medalist, Blake Leeper. The class included people with and without disabilities, on both spin bikes and hand cycles, to showcase how simple it is to create an inclusive fitness class.

As a participant, I can attest to the inspiration of a spin class taught by an instructor with a disability – a Paralympian no less – and the fact that it was a great class regardless. Blake told me that he actually has an advantage to offer that others don’t. “I use my personal experiences of adversity and challenges, that mental toughness from being born without legs, and apply that to the class. I’ve had to push through, so push through with me.”

Blake was born with a congenital birth defect, and has worn prosthetics since he was 9 months old. He made his international Track & Field debut in 2009, and his first Paralympic Games were London 2012. Blake set his sites beyond the Paralympics last summer, with the goal of competing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, but was barred from competition on the grounds that his blade-like prostheses might give him an unfair advantage.

The SOS Covid Report: Power Up The Vax

 

 
Back in May we did a follow up piece with Dr. Richard Firshein on our guide to the three Covid vaccines (read here). At that time, the FDA and CDC had just recommended resuming the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a pause due to rare cases of blood clotting that occurred – in one case resulting in death. Despite vaccinations being on the decline at that time, there was a feeling of optimism as cities were reopening. It felt like things were getting back to normal just in time for summer.

Then came the Delta variant and the surge in cases among the unvaccinated. With breakthrough cases, booster shoots, and new kinds of treatments the latest topics of discussion, we wanted to check back in with Dr. Firshein for an assessment on the state of Covid and the pandemic’s evolution. Dr. Firshein is one of the leading authorities and practitioners of integrative medicine and our go-to expert for the latest medical news and information.

STYLE OF SPORT: When we last spoke, it seemed like we might be getting out of the woods with this pandemic. I’m hearing that again now. But I remember you saying about how insidious this virus is, and how it loves people who are unvaccinated because that’s where it mutates. While Covid has become the pandemic of the unvaccinated, they keep it a threat to us all. Read More

The Orange Krate Returns!

 

THE NEW SCHWINN ORANGE KRATE

 
Hey kids — you grown-up ones too — the Orange Krate rides again! Schwinn has brought back their iconic chopper style bike, a staple of many of our childhoods, now available for a limited time. This vintage replica features the classic Sting-Ray frame, springer fork, banana seat, and high-rise handlebars. It wouldn’t be complete without the larger 20” wheel in back and a smaller 16” wheel in front – complete with those shiny aluminum fenders!

Schwinn first introduced the best-selling Sting-Ray in 1963. In the heyday of motorcycles, muscle cars, and drag racers, kids in California were customizing their bikes to look like choppers. Al Fritz, Schwinn’s director of research and development, created the Sting-Ray to replicate that style. The Sting-Ray became the bestselling bike in Schwinn’s history. Read More
