Remember the good old days where the worry about fitting in your daily workout didn’t exist because you were too busy playing hopscotch, freeze tag, and hide and seek? Well, the creators of JumpSnap are taking our childhood activities and molding them into grown-up version workouts! JumpSnap is a rope less jump rope that provides a full body cardio workout in less than five minutes! The handles even have an LCD display that tracks the number of reps and calories you’ve burned. A rope-less jump rope that counts my jumps? Oh how technology has changed since I was a kid!


Champion’s Vapor Collection Sports Bras
This month Champion introduces its ‘Vapor Collection.’ This line of sports bras, shorts, pants, and tank tops is clothing-technology, full throttle. The sportswear is made of Cocona fabric, which aides in evaporating sweat and filtering out bacteria. This keeps you feeling fresh and smelling clean even during a hard workout. It also blocks out 96% of the sun’s UV rays. Fashionable, health-conscious workout gear? Toto…I don’t think we’re in ’06 anymore.


Oakley Skiing/Snowboarding Goggles
Snowstorm season is lurking its ugly head. Instead of hibernating during the cold, why not try a new winter sport? And what better way to embrace a new sport than with new trendy sports gear? Oakley’s Stockholm Goggles are perfect for skiing or snowboarding. They are one of the few goggles that are made specifically with a woman’s features in mind. This means that they fit well, refuse to fog up, and will definitely spark the attention of that cute ski instructor you’ve been eyeing. What are you waiting for ladies? Hit the slopes!


Puma Trainaway Gear
Leave it to Puma to create the ultimate multi-efficient product for the New Year. Trainaway is a must-have for travelers. The package includes shorts, a jacket, a tank top with an inbuilt sports bra, and puma running shoes. The goods are all bundled into one another to create a nice travel-sized duffel bag. The shoes even come with a slot to put your hotel key in! Talk about the perfect travel necessity.
