Oumi Janta is a roller-skating instructor based in Berlin, and her videos make us want to get up and dance (oh, and maybe strap on some quad skates right along with her). She gives lessons and takes part in “roller discos” for Rollerfusion Club, and we are hypnotized by her smooth moves and joyful energy.
We love workout clothes, but if we’re not careful, they can get really pricey really quickly. We love when our favorite workout clothes go on sale, and we also try to stick to a budget, but sometimes, when we reach a fitness goal, we like to add a new piece to our workout wardrobe as
As scientists learn more about how the coronavirus spreads, we’ve gone from the CDC’s non-mandatory recommendation of face masks to businesses and even states requiring their use in public, all in an effort to slow the pandemic. Bandanas, neck gaiters, homemade cloth face masks, and off-the-shelf cone masks are all acceptable, but no research had
Sometimes, finding a great pair of leggings can feel tougher than bootcamp. Because they all fit so differently, and different customers want different things from a workout pant, we’ve learned to listen to ratings and customer reviews when we’re shopping, and we’ve come across some seriously beloved pairs. Whether you prefer a full legging or
Since the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) is recommending all Americans wear some kind of face covering when out in public, we’re stocking up on all the comfortable options we can find. At the moment, we’re interested in face masks that have a filter pocket. They’re reusable, which is awesome, and as long as you
Because there’s no such thing as too many sports documentaries, today Apple released the first trailer for Greatness Code, a short form series spotlighting untold stories from some of the world’s greatest athletes. USWNT star Alex Morgan and five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky are both featured, alongside five other world-class competitors, including LeBron James,
Does anyone else feel like the universe is out to sabotage their gains? Or is it just us? First, there was Lockdown Level Stay Indoors And Eat Your Feelings. By the time we could go run – yay! – 6am had become the dead of night and our window of freedom was all of five
There are many areas that must combine together to make a successful racer — dedication and mental fortitude for starters. A pair of kicks like the UA Charged Rogue 2 Running Shoes ($80) that can go the distance also doesn’t hurt. However, above all, endurance is probably the most important part of racing for runner.

When ski jumpers were programmed in the workout at my gym, I had no idea what the heck they were. After my coach demonstrated them, I couldn’t wait to hop on a bench and give them a try. Also called bench jumps or side-to-side bench jumps, this exercise is challenging but also playful, and makes
Simone Biles has spoken before about her reaction to the Olympics being postponed: tears, then acceptance that it was the right decision, according to a Today show interview in April. In a MasterClass livestream on June 24, she went into even more detail about the pandemic’s effect on her training and mindset. “In the beginning
From disappointment comes opportunity, at least for Maggie Nichols. As Netflix’s Athlete A reveals, the former elite gymnast was narrowly — and somewhat controversially — left off the 2016 Olympic team after becoming the first to report former team doctor Larry Nassar’s abuse to USA Gymnastics and battling back from injury before the trials. But
For the third of American adults who report getting insufficient sleep, a natural sleep aid like melatonin may sound appealing. After all, it can be bought over the counter and isn’t associated with the addictive qualities or potentially risky side effects of other sleep medications. Now, melatonin is available in a variety of forms, including
Same ol’ concrete running route feeling a little, well, old? Good news: Trail running is having a much-deserved (and much-needed) moment — and we’re oh-so-here for it. Those smart folks are onto something: Exercising in nature actually quiets the part of the brain associated with overthinking, says research published by PNAS. (Can we say “yes, please”?!)
When competing, and even during the off-season, surfers are almost always on the move. After six years on the World Surf League Championship Tour (aka the highest level of pro surfing), pro surfer Alana Blanchard can testify to that: “We’re pretty much gone most of the year, traveling,” she told POPSUGAR. “The surfing circuit goes
There are mixed feelings about workout shorts, but we’re firmly pro, and here’s why. Especially when it’s hot outside, it feels so freeing to be able to really move your legs. Plus, you don’t have to worry about them falling down in the same way that you do leggings, and they look so cute on!
Update: On June 24, CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman sold the company to Eric Roza, owner of CrossFit Sanitas in Boulder, CO. Roza will also take over as CEO from Dave Castro. “The world has changed, but the magnificent human machine, the proven benefits of CrossFit, and its market opportunity remain unchanged,” Glassman said
In our opinion, it’s always a good time for a workout, but you need a great pair of sneakers if you want to truly conquer your fitness goals. We’ve always loved Nike’s footwear because they perform well no matter what activity you choose and they look good doing it. Just because we want solid footwear
Earlier this month, 9-year-old Kaitlyn Saunders and her parents went down to Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington DC while the streets were still empty to record a beautiful skating routine. It was dawn and Saunders, a figure skater with Diversify Ice, strapped on her roller blades to perform her own choreography. Her song of
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is recalling three bagged salad mixes that may be linked to a Cyclospora outbreak in the Midwest, the agency announced on June 23. Cyclospora, a parasite that affects the intestinal tract, can cause diarrhea, nausea, cramping, and loss of appetite in infected people. (Here’s the full list of
