Working out in the winter is already tough. These are the hibernation months and there are a myriad of activities pulling you away from exercise. There are sugary treats around every corner, not to mention plenty of drinks. But you're determined. You're disciplined and you want to stay in peak condition. Of course, that doesn't make the biting cold that smacks you in the face the moment you step outside any easier to endure. Throw in the slushy torture that's meteorologically referred to as "wintery mix" and you're all but guaranteed to come back from your run or workout a shivering, sopping-wet mess. The answer isn't the sad, monotonous treadmill. Half the trick to winter fitness is scoring the right performance attire to shield your body from the elements, keep your muscles warm and your skin dry. Well, that and getting outdoors in the first place.
We recently tried out Brazyn's collapsible foam rollers and fell in love. It collapses fully flat for easy storage or travel and expands instantly for quick and effective post-exercise rolling. When flat, it fits perfectly in the bottom of a gym bag.
