Happy World Swim Day! This international holiday encourages people around the world to be more active through swimming. I certainly have been this fall, as I recover from a stress fracture in my foot! Swimming, however, is a regular part of my fitness routine. It’s the original total body workout – both cardio and strength building – with no impact on bones and joints. Plus, if you’re a gear junkie, there are all sorts of fun training tools to improve your form and conditioning – and break up the monotony of just swimming back and forth!

Fins, hand paddles, snorkels, and more! We spoke to Dan Daly, C.S.C.S, former all-American swimmer, senior Equinox Tier X trainer and founder of EQX H20, about how different pieces of equipment can benefit any level of swimmer. A special thank you to Arena for swagging me out with it all – along with an incredible collection of swimsuits!  Read More

OOO-M-G!

 

 

Walking around the Outdoor Retailer trade show this summer, I stumbled upon the OOFOS booth. Feet aching after miles logged on the floor, I slipped on a pair of these fat-soled sandals and took a few steps into cushioned heaven…

OOFOS sandals are designed for athletes and fitness enthusiasts as a post-workout “recovery” shoe. After a long run, HIIT class, bike race, or walking a trade show, the OOfoam™ technology combined with a bio-mechanically engineered footbed have been proven to help your feet and whole body feel better faster.

Two extensive research studies have shown that the OOFOS cushioning and anatomical design helps reduce the load on feet, ankles, and knees while walking — reducing the stress on the rest of body as well. With 37% more impact absorption than the traditional EVA foam found in athletic shoes, OOFOS provide the whole body the opportunity to relax and recover. Read More
