Exercise
  1. Xero Shoes
    • What it does: Offers the benefits of going barefoot—including proper posture and toe spread—with footwear designed for all occasions, not just exercise. 

 

  • What the science says: A recent study found that eight weeks of walking in minimalist shoes increased foot muscles’ size and strength—which is critical for maintaining good posture, natural mobility and overall musculoskeletal health.
  • Why we recommend it: Lots of fashionable styles—everything from Chelsea-style boots to casual flats to huarache sandals—means lots of options for anyone curious about transitioning to an all-barefoot lifestyle. (In fact, we think they’re the perfect gift-you’d-never-think-to-get-yourself gift.) For a more affordable and customizable choice, there are even DIY sandal kits.
  • Hyperice Hypervolt Bluetooth
    • What it does: Uses percussive therapy to relieve aching muscles in any body part. Has three speed settings, five attachments, a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and Bluetooth technology that lets you “set and forget” your recovery routine.
    • What the science says: A 2014 study found that percussive therapy is as effective as human-touch massage in preventing Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. 
    • Why we recommend it: It’ll help you recover faster from exercise, increase natural mobility and release stress. It’s also dramatically more powerful than other consumer-market massagers, yet still super-quiet. Over time, it’s more bang for your buck than in-person massages—with no appointments required (and no worries about social distancing).
    • Withings Wi-Fi Smart Scale With Body Composition and Heart Rate
    • What it does: Provides comprehensive body metrics, including BMI, water percentage, muscle and bone mass, heart rate—and, of course, weight.
    • What the science says: According to a 2017 study, smart-scale users weigh themselves more frequently than regular-scale users or non-scale users, making them an effective tool for overall health and weight management. (In other words, what gets measured, improves.) 
    • Why we recommend it: Sleek aesthetics and a well-designed display make this a sophisticated pick for tech lovers looking for a data-driven, hyper-personalized approach to health and fitness. We also like that this scale stores your metrics to help you determine the lifestyle choices that do and don’t lead to overall improvement.
    • The Fehn Seat
    • What it does: Allows you to easily move through a wide range of postures, stretches and exercises while seated at a standing-height desk for better fitness and mobility throughout the workday. (It also stows away easily under standing-height desks for when you’d rather stand.)
    • What the science says: According to a 2019 study, alternating sitting and standing at work decreases blood pressure and low back pain. Maintaining healthy posture is also critical to preserving mobility and musculoskeletal health.
    • Why we recommend it: Standing desks became popular because sitting too long has been shown to shorten your lifespan—but on the other hand (or, you know, foot), maintaining good posture on your feet for long stretches is hard. This product offers an easy, intermediate solution.   Plus, the ergonomic seat sets the pelvis at the correct angle to allow the spine to rest in its natural curvature.
