Some of us are born more flexible than others, but we can all benefit from improving our flexibility through active stretches practiced regularly. Stretching offers a great number of benefits such as improving circulation and posture, reducing risk of injury, increasing range of motion, bettering physical performance, and allowing the body to use up less energy when active.

If you want a similar look to US Olympic athlete leather gloves, try Burton's mittens

If you watched the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics this year, chances are you noticed the leather gloves worn by the U.S. team as it entered the stadium. Love them or hate them, the gloves made a big splash on social media, and anyone wanting a pair for themselves were informed at the Ralph Lauren website that they were sold out – at the cost of $995 a pair. OK, so maybe you didn't want them that badly anyway. But if you're going for a similar look, the Burton Work Horse Leather Mitt will keep you just as warm and only set you back forty bucks.

Smartwool's hoody is not just for comfort

It's no surprise that the humble hoody remains popular among both athletes and those who simply like its cozy and comfortable appeal. But for outdoor lovers who want a performance top, Smartwool's PhD Ultra Light Sport Hoody takes the weekend staple to a new level. As its name implies, Smartwool is known for its creative use of Merino wool, and this piece is no exception. While the super-light shell fabric (that's both wind and water resistant) is 100 percent Nylon, the trim includes some of that signature wool to provide extra comfort.

If you hate yoga as a workout, try the mental version instead

While I maintain that there is a form of yoga for everyone, I also respect that some people just can't get behind it as a workout. Just as I will always see long-distance running as a special kind of torture, others don't particularly enjoy contorting themselves into sustained, balance-driven postures.
