New Balance jacket makes running in the fall comfortable

Running in the fall is often glorious, but it also can be tricky. The welcome cooler temperatures make for more pleasant conditions, but you now need to think more about what you're wearing. The New Balance Precision Run 3 in 1 Jacket might better be described as a system for running in colder weather. The wind- and water-resistant shell serves as the top layer in bad weather and moderately cool conditions. The chin-length collar is a nice tough for those cold early-morning runs, allowing you to stay warm at the start but open it up for more ventilation once your body heats up.

Thon Maker bulks up for bigger role with Bucks

Thon Maker spent nearly 40 minutes after a recent Milwaukee Bucks practice working on his shooting, and every time he missed a shot he hit the deck – no easy feat at 7-foot-1 – for a perfect-form, straight-back, full-range-of-motion push-up.

The North Face's new Ventrix jacket helps release excess heat while exercising

It's the struggle for anyone exercising in the cold weather – you want a jacket that keeps you warm but doesn't cause you to overheat once you start to sweat. Most jackets will do a fine job retaining heat when you're standing still, but releasing all that excess heat becomes a problem. In The North Face's new Ventrix jacket, it has come up with a new technology to help solve the dilemma.

The dark side of HIIT workouts (and it's not injuries)

Filling your schedule with HIIT workouts is a great, efficient way to get fit, since they allow you to work up a major amount of sweat in a short amount of time. And while banking extra minutes back into your daily time savings account is a happiness-boosting bonus of the fitness modality, in order to stick with an exercise routine, it's important to also enjoy it.

How to choose the right barre class for you

I have tried a lot of these so-called trendy classes, but none seem to give me the lasting body results like barre does. My arms are stronger, there's definition in my waist, and my thighs are toned after regularly going. Skeptics out there may say it doesn't look as intense as those other high-impact, adrenaline pumping workout classes. But trust me when I say you will walk away from any good barre class really sore and sweaty – in the best way possible.
