Working out at home with gyms closed, you need to have some training gear.

The O-Seat

 

 

Spice up your workout this Valentine’s Day! Spin class got a whole lot more exciting with the O-Seat – a portable vibrating bike seat from the cheeky porn company CamSoda. Compatible with any indoor or outdoor bike, the O-Seat looks just like your typical gel seat cover. Hidden discreetly within, however, is a pouch for the companion Lovense Lush vibrator, which is a controlled via an app on your phone.

We always knew sex was a workout. Now you can really count it as one!

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

 

The E-Fleet Band

 

FARADAY CORTLAND $2499

 

Electric bikes, or “e-bikes”, have become one of the most popular categories of bicycles for both fun and commuting, opening the road up to many who might not have previously considered cycling as their mode of recreation or transport before. We’re talking “pedal assist” here, not those motorized bikes your take-out gets delivered on that require no pedaling at all. For those times when you need an extra boost of power while riding, and don’t want to break a sweat — say up a hill on your way to work — the e-bike is the way to go.

In the US, there are three classes of e-bikes defined by the speed and type of power assist. Class 1 bikes have a motor (max 750w) that assists while you’re pedaling and maxes out at 20 mph. Class 3 can assist up to 28 mph. Both are allowed in most states and cities without requiring a license. Class 2 models have throttles that don’t require pedaling in order to get a boost. The miles before recharging, or range of the bike, is determined by how much assist you use.

Most big name cycling companies now offer a class 1 e-bike option, as well many design-oriented bespoke brands, and even urban bike-sharing systems like Citibike have added e-bikes to their fleet. I rode an electric Citibike home from work earlier this week (they’re hard to find!), zipping up Madison Avenue in no time with a “I’m having a blast” look on my face. Even the taxi drivers were smiling at me. Read More
