Gear Up for Summer Fitness

With long days, warm weather and lots of sunshine, summer is one of the best seasons to hit the pavement in search of your personal fitness goals.

If you need a little motivation to get back into your running routine, kickboxing classes or yoga practice, I think there’s nothing wrong with splurging on the right fitness equipment to help you achieve your goals. Check out some of these fun fitness finds to get started now!

BOBgear Running Stroller

Running moms know that BOBgear is the way to go when it comes to workout-ready strollers.


Nike + iPod

I love this workout tool. You attach a tiny receiver to your iPod, which connects to a chip in your Nike+ shoes. It allows you to track your runs on Nike.com, set goals for yourself (and meet them!), see how many calories you’ve torched and participate in an online community of runners. I particularly love my little Nike+ Mini, who helps keep me motivated by dancing around (or absentmindedly playing paddle ball) in conjunction with how much I workout.


SIGG Water Bottles

Eco-friendly, and super cute, too!


Nike Workout Gear

I love their bright colors and fun prints. Plus, Nike Dri-FIT is a blessing during the hottest summer months!


Stretching Tips from Self Magazine

Don’t forget how important it is to stretch! Self Magazine makes it easy with a ton of free online resources.


Soleo Organic & Natural Sunblock

Even the best bikini body isn’t worth it if getting there means wrinkles, sun spots and increased chances of skin cancer. Lather up with organic sunblock first to avoid unnecessary damage!

    I just got a Garmin Forerunner 405, but also have a iPhone with the Nike+ features built into it… going to have to take a closer look at Nike+, but don’t know if I can use it without the foot pod thing?

    I’m pretty sure you have to have the shoe insert. I love it, but the Garmin might do a lot of the same things. It’s definitely worth checking out though!
