A River Runs Through It

 

HYDROW

The latest entry into the burgeoning world of high-end home fitness is the Hydrow – a rowing machine meets Peloton concept that is unlike any indoor rower you’ve ever seen. This sculptural work of art features a sleek HD touchscreen monitor that delivers an immersive outdoor rowing experience at home.

Home fitness equipment is no longer related to the basement or closet with the evolution of machines so beautifully designed they become the focal part of a room. First there was Ciclotte that redefined the indoor bicycle with its striking and unconventional design. Then came Peloton, a SoulCycle-inspired indoor cycle, that was the first to integrate a sleek, oversized tablet-like monitor to stream both live and on-demand spinning classes at home. Coming soon is the Peloton Tread, the same concept on a treadmill, as well as Tonal that expands interactive home fitness to weight lifting, and Mirror that streams yoga, Pilates, barre, cardio, and strength workouts. Both of these turn the wall mounted monitor into an object of desire.
 

CICLOTTE, MIRROR, AND PELOTON TREAD

Launching nationally for pre-order on October 2nd, Hydrow takes home fitness to the next level with an indoor rower that brings the outdoors in. Hydrow offers over 100 rowing workouts, both live and on demand, from the waters of such rivers as the Charles in Boston, the Hudson in NYC, and the Miami River. Founded by CEO and US National team coach Bruce Smith, Hydrow instructors are all elite level athletes that include three-time World Rowing Championship silver medalist, Danielle Hansen. Hydrow delivers an on-river outdoor rowing experience that engages two times more of the body’s muscles than biking or running. A 20-minute workout on the Hydrow burns over 400 calories compared to 40 minutes on bike.

As many New Yorker’s are already aware, the L train, which shuttles riders between parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan, will be shutting down in April 2019 to repair damages related to Superstorm Sandy. The MTA has put alternate means of transportation in place, but Priority Bicycles has come up with their own solution: the BRILLIANT L TRAIN. Using the same Pantone gray as the L Train – who knew it was so chic! – the new L TRAIN commuter bicycle gets you anywhere you need to go in style. Not just for cycling only, we’ve found a few other shades of gray and chic accessories to complement your pedal powered ride… 

 
ROW 1 FROM LEFT: BRILLIANT L TRAIN $650. The Brilliant L Train is made for that urban cyclist looking for a fast and nimble ride. Its chromoly frame is light and agile with an easy shift Shimano 7-Speed Internal Hub and grease/rust free Gates Carbon belt drive that goes for miles without needing a tune up. Accented with tan vegan leather seats and stitched handle bar grips, the L Train is your stylish new ride for commuting or recreation. Got mine!

DE MARCHI POLO UNICA SHIRT $148.95 $75. Iconic brand De Marchi has been outfitting cyclists since 1946, and this stylish Pima cotton polo is inspired by those classic wool race jerseys of old. Available in other colors, it’s a great sporty look both on the bike and off.

From the laps in the pool, to aqua running, to open water swimming…

we’ve got all the cool gear you’ll love to keep wet workouts fun.

C’mon and jump in!

 
I have not had my typical sporty summer of running, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, and cycling. I’ve had a stress fracture in my foot that has kept me from many of the sports I usually enjoy. The good news is it has opened up all sorts of new sports — all in the water!

Swimming truly is the sport of a lifetime. Non weight-bearing, it allows you to do the cardio, strength, and endurance workouts that injury or age prevents. I’ve seen that first hand with my new silver haired fitness tribe in the Deep Water Running class at Alphalt Green, where I’ve gotten a preview of my workouts at 80! It’s become my Soul Cycle replacement for the summer giving me that group exercise motivation and comradery I love.

Then there has been the solitary and meditative discipline of swimming — open water in particular. I’ve always been a pool swimmer, but this summer I’ve conquered my fear of what lies beneath in murky water with an experienced training partner, and discovered the goal achieving satisfaction of swimming to a destination – like a long distance run!

Surf Tesla

 

LIMTED EDITION TESLA SURFBOARD

For those who have dreamed of owning a Tesla – a surfboard that is – here it is! Available today is the new Limited Edition Tesla Surfboard, designed in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and famed surfboard shaper Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.

Constructed from a lightweight “Black Dart” carbon fiber, the Tesla Surfboard features a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on Tesla cars. Along with tonal logos in a subtle contrast gloss, Tesla red coats the underside of the board. Measuring 6’8”, the board is designed to fit the Tesla Model S, X, and 3, accommodating it comfortably on the inside or outside of the vehicle.

Each surfboard will be custom made to order, and only 200 are being produced. Priced affordably at $1500, unfortunately you’ll need to keep dreaming about owning that Tesla. Not surprisingly, the edition is already sold out.
