Health & Fitness

The serious summer weather is upon us and these fit finds are sure to help you stay cool, sexy, healthy and in shape throughout it all.

Personal training by the world’s top coaches used to be available only to the Hollywood elite or the economically fortuitous, but with NextFit Keychain Trainer, the rest of us finally have a fighting chance to get the toned look of the A-listers. Using the keychain is easy, just plug it into your computer and you’re instantly connected with dozens of well-known celebrity coaches. After answering a few questions about your exercise level, where you’ll be working out, and what equipment you have available, the keychain trainer will come up with a personalized training session just for you. It even creates a soundtrack that’s suitable for your workout! Once the settings are complete, just plug in your headphones, and gear up for a truly economically-savvy personal training session.

Aside from sunscreen, flip flops and oversized shades, this year beachgoers will be indulging in the ultimate summer outdoor accessory, the new zero calorie SoBe Lifewater. It’s all cool-ness of SoBe, with none of the guilt.

The zero cal line of SoBe Lifewater is sweetened by the FDA approved PureVia, an all-natural sweetener made from the extract of the stevia plant leaf. With flavors like like Fuji Apple Pear, Black & Blue Berry and Yumberry Pomegranate, bypassing the sugary summer cocktails and punches just might be easier! Not only is this drink delicious, but each bottle also provides a full day’s supply of Vitamin C, 20% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin E, and 10% of the recommended daily value of Vitamins B6, B12, Niacin (B3) and Pantothenic Acid (B5.)

Available anywhere beverages are sold

Let’s face it – going barefoot in the summer sounds sexy and comfortable, but it can wreak havoc on the soles of your feet – and on the streets of New York it is a definite ‘don’t’. Introducing TROVE TKEES Foundation Collection. This newly launched line is the perfect accessory to give you the appearance of long legs ending in bare feet, without the after math of coarse dirty soles. Regarded by many as “wearable cosmetics for your feet”, these subtle sandals come in a range of eight neutral colors that are specifically designed to have the sandal match its wearer’s skin tone. The matching tones create an illusion that make your legs appear longer and have it seem as though you’re barefoot. The idea is make-up for your feet, hence The Foundation Collection name. They are even adding lipstick, blush and shadow colors!
