    Stealth: Fitness App Uses Video Games to Encourage Exercise (Video)

    Sometimes I think the difference between people who exercise and people who don’t isn’t that the former are more committed or driven but instead they just find exercising pleasurable, so it’s (relatively) easy for them to commit to it. It’s true that they say if you want to exercise consistently you should find ways to […]

    ‘Vessel': A Staircase to Nowhere is Coming to New York

    Sarah Palin’s infamous bridge to nowhere was a political liability, but in the art world liabilities routinely become strengths. With that in mind, take a look at sculptor/designer Thomas Heatherwick’s latest project, Vessel, coming to New York City sometime in 2018. To outward appearances, Vessel looks like a giant staircase to nowhere, inspired by M.C. […]

    BangFit: Pornhub Unveils Sexual Workout Regimen (Video)

    The physical benefits of regular and rigorous sexual activity are pretty obvious, even if they’re not what usually get touted when people talk about physical fitness and exercise.

    It has long been said that the brain is the most important muscle of them all, but that expression doesn’t tend to get a lot of traction in actual athletic training situations. Now there’s a company called Halo Sport that’s trying to change that through a process they refer to as Neuropriming. Neuropriming is what the […]

    ‘Gym Wildlife’ Gives You a Look at the Creatures of the Gym (Video)

    If you’ve ever taken a moment to step back and look at your local gym from an objective standpoint, you’ve probably concluded that it is a very strange place indeed – maybe even worthy of a National Geographic documentary. The Buff Dudes YouTube channel (which, it should be said, doesn’t seem to specialize in comedy […]

    Hock Design Diskus Dumbbell Set

    I’m not a big weightlifter, but I have shared living space with weights in my time, and they don’t usually seem to have much aesthetic purpose – the most common place to find them is on the floor of your closet, I would guess. But the Hock Design Diskus Dumbbell Set is a little bit more […]

  • Human: App Encourages 30 Minutes of Activity Per Day

    Human: App Encourages 30 Minutes of Activity Per Day

    You might remember the “Be More Human” advertising campaign from Reebok, which equates humanity with physical exercise. From what I can tell, the Human app isn’t directly affiliated with Reebok, but it is in the same general vein, aiming to encourage users to hit at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. Human uses the sensors inside […]

    Atlas: An All-In-One Fitness Tracker (Video)

    As a general rule, fitness trackers tend to be restricted by their primary focus, meaning they can do one thing well but suffer in other areas of fitness tracking. One product that sets out to put the capabilities of several fitness trackers into one wearable package is the Atlas, which recently surpassed its IndieGoGo fundraising […]

    Goji Play: Video Games Are Finally Healthy

    When the Nintendo Wii came out a few years ago, as you probably remember, some were predicting that it was the end of sedentary video games, and that exercise and video games would soon become one and the same. That didn’t happen, but now the Goji Play is attempting to make the connection between exercise […]
