The Yoga Zone


Yoga apparel is no longer just for Sun Salutations only. What was once hippie style has become the new look of daytime casual. In a movement started by Lululemon, yoga clothes are now designed for performance but are stylish enough for any time of the day. This is the new American sportswear. With their simple style and body flattering fit, slim leggings, classic camisoles, stretchy tops and cozy warm-ups can be worn all day, long after class is finished, to lunch with friends, running errands, dressed up or down for all your daily activities. Here are a few of our favorite yoga inspired pieces, designed to take you through the day.

ABOVE ROW 1: LOLE CUTEST LEGGINGS $70 & DELICATE TANK TOP $60. Long and lean are these classic leggings with targeted compression for muscle support and a smooth silhouette. Camisole top features integrated bra for seemless support; BEYOND YOGA SIDE PANEL LONG LEGGING $88. A sleek performance legging with slimming features that include a back yoke, side leg panels and signature contour waistband; LULULEMON SCUBA HOODIE STRETCH $108. Our favorite for transit, this soft and stretchy, body-skimming hoodie features a deep lined hood, high scuba collar, snug cuffs with thumbholes for a warm and cozy fit. Read More


The April Calendar: 30 Days of Swag




April is here and with it a new STYLE OF SPORT Calendar! Instead of featuring just a single topic as we have been doing (i.e. bikes, sneakers or sunglasses), we are putting it all together with a mix of our favorite sporty things. Everyday there is a hot new must have, must do, must try piece of gear, apparel, workout, sport and more being featured for you to check out.

APR.30: RIME. Located in Brooklyn and now on the upper east side of Manhattan, is the very mod sneaker store RIME. A sneakerhead’s dream, the shop carries only the most coveted and limited editions of Nike, Adidas, Puma, Supra, Vans and more, in addition to other accessories and apparel. Love the wedge sneaker? They stock virtually every one!

APR.29: ADIDAS NEO LOGO WINDBREAKERFrom Selena Gomez and the Adidas Neo line is this bright, lightweight and shiny nylon windbreaker. The jacket has cropped sleeves, kangaroo pockets and a roomy hood. It’s a perfect jacket for the still chilly days of spring training or anywhere you need a sporty extra layer!

APR.28: EXPRESS COTTON STRIPED TUXEDO SHORTS. These short tuxedo shorts are chic enough for the city and a great sporty look for all your weekend activities. More colors available in store.

APR.27: GLAMOURPUSS GAUGIN STRIPE TOP. Rash Guard? Chic sporty striped top? We say both! This stretchy luxe boat neck shirt, rated at SPF 50+, is perfect on the surfboard or anyplace else you want to wear it!

APR.26: TORY BURCH PIERSON MINI BEACH TOTE. Made of natural and bright dipped canvas, with leather straps and lots of extra pockets, this roomy little tote is the perfect bag whether you’re seaside or staying in town.

APR.25: THE FHITTING ROOM. Recently opened in Manhattan’s Upper East Side is The Fhitting Room, a beautifully designed boutique fitness studio that packs a lot of workout into a small space. The classes utilize rowers, free weights, kettlebells, suspension trainers, plyo boxes, medicine balls and more in what they call a FHIX (Functional High Intensity Mix) of exercise moves. Each class is unique but always delivers their signature five essential building blocks for optimal results: (1) functional movements (2) strength training (3) high intensity intervals (4) total body focus (5) highly varied exercises. Following the trend of a la carte fitness, this is a great workout to add to your fitness platter!

APR.24: BAGGU SURF SLING. Carry your surfboard with style and ease with this brightly trimmed heavyweight canvas surfboard sling. Designed with their Brooklyn neighbors, the ultra hip Pilgrim Surf + Supply, the sling is perfect for toting other oversized beach toys and accessories as well!

APR.23: FINIS ZOOMERS. Zoomers Gold Swim Fins are the latest and most advanced version of their popular training fins, offering improved comfort and performance. Swim Fins are used for swim training to boost cardiovascular conditioning and accelerate speed during workouts. By adding resistance to your kick, leg muscles get stronger, ultimately resulting in faster and longer swims without the fins. A must have training tool for both competitive and recreational swimmers alike. Read More


Frost Free Fingers



A week ago I posted about the pleasures of Winter Running and featured some of my favorite layering pieces. Gloves are critical part of the equation as well. Once you start moving, hands warm up pretty quick, so you want gloves that are flexible, moisture-wicking and breathable. Here are a few I really like (and you don’t have to wear them for running only). Pearl Izumi, Mountain Hardware and The Northface come in men’s sizes too.
