“Fitness abhors a wire” is a quote I just made up, but it makes a lot of sense. The last thing you want to deal with is wire snaking from your head and getting tangled up in the intricate movements a quick run, a downward dog, or some dumbbell curls. That’s why Bose made new the SoundSport wireless: to cut that…
If you want to be remotely healthy, don’t eat junk food. It’s that simple. Because it’s really not worth it (oh but it is, sometimes) when you try to burn off all those bad calories you just ate. Think about the exercise! Think about the weights! Think about the cardio! Think about all that when you’re about to eat a…
The thought was delivered just after my newborn’s placenta: A sneaking suspicion that things were not quite the same down there, and they might never be again. I was reminded of the kGoal, a device that claimed it could tone my ladyparts back into pre-baby shape. Once my daughter had finished using my vagina as a…
Being healthy is simple, right? "Eat less, move more." That's easy to say, but practicality is one of the most important things when it comes to health and fitness. Recommendations like this are blanket statements that don't address practicality—so when it comes down to it, which is more important? Diet, or exercise?
For once, let's not lie to ourselves about how we're going to "take it easy" this Thanksgiving. Most of us are going to give thanks by indulging like gluttonous pigs. It's okay, we can give ourselves a pass every now and then, but let's be real: if we don't want to have more chins on our chin's chins by New…
As far as I can tell, I don't think there's an invisible wall where this guy is pushing his legs off of to make it look like he's walking on thin air. But I can't be sure though because I assume once you get as strong as these guys, you unlock all sorts of secret life powers. I mean these tricks are unreal.
Simon Ata is a breakdancer based in Melbourne, Australia, and he works hard everyday to stay fit so he can perform properly. Judging from what I see in this video the guy is more than ready.
You already have to be a little loony to ski barefoot so I don't even know what to consider these guys who strapped themselves behind an airplane and ripped up the water with their bare feet. Awesome? Yeah, probably. They even jumped off a ramp barefoot!
Lube brand KY created a Sexercise program with sexologists, personal trainers and porn professionals to help you perform better in bed. They think sex needs training too and it's true.

You may be familiar with Runtastic's workout app that's primarily geared toward running. It's one of the most advanced running apps out there, with interval training and all kinds of metrics. But today the company is shifting its focus away from your legs and honing in on your mid-section.
I'm not sure if working out while working (or viceversa) can be done effectively, but Lifehacker says it's possible. You just have to keep in mind these pros and cons—like motion sickness.
Ah, beautiful summer. A time for barbecues, frolicking, the sun's ceaseless rays, the resulting blistering burns, perpetual sweating, sand in crevices you didn't know you had—er, on second thought, probably safest just to wait it out indoors. Because don't listen to them; the gadgets can love you back.
Remember Fitbit, makers of tiny activity-tracking gadgets for health and fitness? Well, the 2012 models are here and they're smaller, cheaper, and better than their last thingies. After all, fitness-tracking shouldn't be limited to big-pocketed rich people, right?
The right music doesn't soothe the savage beast, it makes the beast more savage. When you're going for a long run, that's exactly what you want. The pulse of thumping beats can make you feel superhuman. It certainly beats the sound of your own labored breathing.
The sun is out, the weather's warm, and in a month or so you're going to be parading around the beach nearly naked. Time to shed that winter weight. So you start running. But lo! Just as you start getting results, you also get pain. In your shins. It's bad.

If you've ever played sports, you've always wanted to find a way to measure your athletic ability. How fast can you run? How high can you jump? Are you any good? The new Nike+ Sports Sensor puts a super smart sensor in your shoe that can measure all that. It's like wearing Nike's research labs on your feet.
Nike+ was a super sweet tool for runners to keep track of their workouts. But what about the rest of your life? What if Nike+ could keep track of that? That's what the brand new Nike+ Fuelband, an evolution of Nike+ in a simple Livestrong-styled wristband, tries to do.
Yeah! Thursday! Burn your calves! The weather is shitty outside! But I've got 12 stations of ass-maneuvering, tummy-crunching, algorithmically determined jams! Pandora's suite of exercise tunes almost makes me want to exercise—I'm sort of exercising in my chair!
