Rogue Wood Rings
Whether you’re doing standing ring rows on your way to your first pull-up or churning out full-on muscle-ups, a set of simple wooden rings can get you fitter faster.
Nike Free Train Force Flyknit Shoes
An air-permeable knit upper makes this the most breathable trainer we’ve worn, while the dual-density sole softens impacts from box jumps and provides a stable platform for lifts.
Prana Maha Towel
The polyester Maha comes in handy whether you’re a hot-yoga junkie or just sweating it out in the garage. And at just 16 by 20 inches, it easily disappears into your bag after a workout.
Prana Orion 1/4 Zip Shirt
Early-morning runs are a little easier with this pullover, which features moisture-wicking fabric and flat seams that prevent chafing. The lightweight polyester is ultracomfortable and looks polished enough to wear even when you’re not working out.
X-Pole X-Pert Pole
Get your mind out of the gutter. Pole-fitness studios are popping up all over the country because the workouts build a ton of upper-body strength. The 45-millimeter X-Pert fits a seven- to almost ten-foot ceiling.
Lululemon License to Train Pants
When we aren’t in ski bibs, we’ve got these slim-fitting bottoms on. They’re made of svelte, four-way stretch fabric and have internal pockets for a cell phone and other essentials.
Garmin Fenix 3 HR Watch
The Fenix 3 blends sports cred (modes for running, swimming, and skiing, along with a built-in altimeter and barometer) with day-to-day features such as activity tracking, smartphone connectivity, and two weeks of battery life.
Thera Cane Original Massager
Six strategically placed knobs on the Thera Cane allow you to work the soreness out of muscles in hard-to-reach places.
Noble 3D SLA Earbuds
Noble uses custom molds of your ears to produce bespoke earbuds. Couple that with bass-heavy sound and it’s like climbing into a recording studio. Most important, the custom fit means your significant other can’t steal them.
