You've tied your shoes a thousand times, but did you know different lacing techniques can aid your feet? Here's three to try.
Sometimes the right clothes provide just the inspirational kick we need. Your go-to shorts, wicking tee and running shoes will do the trick for most sweaty scenarios—but sometimes it’s best to up your apparel game. Not only will cool clothes give you a confidence boost, wearing workout-specific attire means you’ll be able to spend more time on the task at hand instead of constantly tugging and adjusting clothes. We curated a look for every day of the week, from basics with a twist to the hottest new styles for the studio, pool and even hanging in a hammock.
