Public Rec Here to There Bra and Leggings

It’s about time someone created better leggings — leggings that offers not only the typical waist sizes you’re used to, but also three different inseam options for the perfect fit while you’re running errands or doing squats. Public Rec believes that “comfort starts with a better fit,” and it’s exactly what the brand delivers in its Here to There leggings. The Dusk color is a gorgeous periwinkle, the soft material offers plenty of stretch while resisting pilling, and the hem slits are a fun touch. Pair them with the matching Here to There Longline Bra, which offers medium support in a surprisingly open-back design, for a cohesive head-to-toe look.

Longline bra $58; legging $98, publicrec.com 

Buckleband Resistance Bands

Stop struggling with stretching your resistance bands over your limbs and reach for the band with the brilliant buckle design: Buckleband. These bands are made from industrial-strength silicone and tested at twice their maximum resistance level, which means you won’t have to worry about it snapping. The Starter Set includes a travel bag, and four bands (light, medium, heavy and extra-heavy).

You might think all recovery socks are created equal, but trust us, the Naboso Recovery Sock — developed by renowned podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, DPM — will truly help you put your best foot forward. Choose from the low-profile Foot Recovery Socks or the Knee-High Recovery Socks, as both offer the patent-pending neuro-stimulating texture that gives your tootsies a mini massage for enhanced circulation and the release of muscles and fascia. Ahhhhhh.

Are you a former runner who had to give up your hobby due to injury? Or are you looking for a lower impact way to get into jogging? Take your run to the pool. The first-of-its-kind Fluid Running aquatic fitness system allows you to run in deep water for a no-impact, full-body workout. Since water is 800 times denser than air, your arms, legs and core muscles will be challenged with resistance, and your heart rate will soar.
