8 Fitness Gift Cards For Your Virtual Workout Crew


The new year is so close we can taste it. Only thing is, we’re not so sure how 2021 is going to satiate our annual wellness-resolution cravings. If you’re also missing good-old-fashioned group fitness classes (you know, the overpriced ones awash in dim lighting and bumpin’ tunes), then we’ve got a sweaty stand-in for you and your workout crew — one that also happens to make A+ holiday material: the virtual-fitness gift card.

Since 2020 has shifted life as we know it, we’ve swapped cramped studio rooms and nearly-impossible-to-book classes for streaming computer screens and down-dogging it in our living rooms. And, you know what? We are actually feeling our new in-house workout clubs where the classes are never overcrowded and the subway never stops us from making it on time. So, in celebration of continuing to get physical come 2021, we’ve rounded up every awesome virtual-fitness gift we could

Why You Shouldn’t Set New Year’s Fitness Resolutions


NY running goals

I wish I could say that I’m immune to the allure of setting New Year’s resolutions. But I think just about as long as I can remember, I’ve set some kind of goal come the first week of January. And like so many who make a list of wishes and goals, I set at least one fitness-related resolution.

For the last five years or so, one of these goals (if not more) has been centered around running: run a 10K, then a half marathon, then a full marathon, then get faster, qualify for international races — the list goes on. Some of these goals I’ve attained, others I haven’t. But as the year ends and it comes dangerously close to the time to make new goals, I find myself less than enthusiastic about setting any fitness goals — namely running goals — for 2021.

There’s, of course, the practical reason:

Onnit Chief Fitness Officer John Wolf shares some of the most important lessons he’s learned while adjusting to the challenges that arose in 2020.

JOHN WOLF’S job is all about thinking in new ways to break away from conventions—but 2020 was still an unprecedented challenge for him.

The man tasked with leading the fitness curriculum at Onnit, the company behind some of the most unconventional, versatile workout gear on the market, had to adjust the ways he approaches both his work and family.

He wound up building stronger connections than ever before.

Now, in his own words, Wolf shares the lessons he’s learned through a period that was challenging and isolating—but which ultimately led to deeper connections and a renewed sense of focus.

Nova Scotia fitness business requests exemption to stay open amid COVID-19


The owner of a fitness facility in Halifax has written a letter to the province asking for an exemption to stay open out of concern for his clients.

The owner of OneUp Fitness, Matt Mombourquette, said what sets his facility apart from other commercial gyms is its small size, one-on-one, appointment based-training. Its average demographic is people aged 55 and up.

“A lot of our clients have chronic health conditions, such as osteoporosis, orthopedic pain, we have some clients with Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy,” said Mombourquette.

So when the province announced a second round of lockdown for fitness facilities, Mombourquette said he was concerned for his aging clientele.

7 at-home fitness machines you should actually splurge on this year


When the first shut down happened earlier this year, I was really worried about losing my fitness progress. I was going to the gym anywhere from 5 to 7 times a week, doing a mix of personal training sessions and using the machines on my own. Even though gyms reopened, I haven’t felt comfortable going back and I know I am not alone.

Due to the pandemic, it was nearly impossible to find appropriately-priced dumbbells anywhere online for months (At one point, I saw a single 10-pound dumbbell going for $65 on Amazon). I soon realized that the best quality investment was to buy an actual at-home fitness a machine – ahem, I mean studio.

Watch Out Fitbit, The Wyze Watch Fitness Tracker Only Costs $20


Smart home tech company Wyze has announced a feature-rich fitness tracker that costs just $20.

The Wyze Watch is available for pre-order today, and will ship from February 2021.

A $20 price encourages low expectations, but the Wyze Watch has an almost baffling amount of tech and hardware considering the cost. It has a 1.75-inch LCD screen — more like that of a smartwatch than a budget fitness tracker — an aluminium frame rather than a plastic one and a blood oxygen saturation sensor.

Wyze’s Watch comes in two sizes, 44mm and 47mm, and the smaller version has a 1.4-inch screen. Wyze claims the watch lasts up to nine days between charges, and its optical HR sensor will keep an eye on your heart rate 24/7.

This is a little less of a departure for Wyze than it may initially
