Miler Running Base Running Arm Sleeves
Miler Running

A favorite among pro runners, arm sleeves are a great way to stay warm — but not too warm — during cold-weather races and workouts. This American-made pair from indie running brand Miler Running features a breathable matte-knit fabric and pockets for gels.

ProBar Bite Organic Energy Bar (12-Pack)

We’re kind of obsessed with ProBar, a Utah-based brand that makes incredible energy and protein bars with surprising flavor. These bites provide quick, healthy calories during extended adventures. The protein-packed meal bars are awesome, too. 

HydraPak Skyflask 500ml

This collapsible water bottle features a comfy hand strap and is the perfect size for on-the-move hydration.

Kalahari Biltong (3-Pack)
Kalahari Biltong

Kalahari Biltong was founded by three endurance athletes wowed by this local treat during a trip to race in South Africa. They describe it as a cross between “dry-aged beef, jerky, and prosciutto.” We find it delicious, and at 32 grams of protein and zero sugar per 160-calorie serving, it’s something of a superfood to boot.

ShakeSphere Tumbler Protein Shaker Bottle

This seemingly simple tumbler cracked last year's GP100 thanks to an ingenious design. It has no internal edges, which not only cuts down on waste but enables the pureeing of fruit with bit of vigorous shaking. The result is convenient, flavorful protein smoothies on the go with minimal mess.

Osprey Daylite Waist Pack

Fanny packs have taken more than their share of abuse over the years, but they’ve stuck around for one inarguable reason: they make it easy to stash a few essentials — say workout gloves, towel, protein powder — till you need them. And this elegant, double-zippered Osprey option is more than up to the task.

GU Hoppy Trails Energy Gel (24-Pack)
GU Energy

GU is the leader in on-the-go energy gels. And this box of electrolyte-loaded 100-calorie packets is the ultimate stocking stuffer for the IPA-loving endurance athlete.

Perfect Fitness Pull-Up Bar
Perfect Fitness

Those lacking funds or space for a full weight set can get quite a bang for the buck from bodyweight moves. This clever bar hooks under a door frame for all manner of pull-ups and chin-ups — and can also be used for for really deep, chest-expanding pushups.

PowerHandz PowerFit Training Gloves

For the fitness fiend who is always looking to amp it up, these gloves carry extra weight across the top side, boosting the impact of everything from lifting to cardio. The palms, meanwhile, feature foam gel to prevent calluses and blisters.

Maurten Gel Combo Pack

Endurance junkies will love these gels, which are used by record-breaking runners, cyclists and triathletes all over the world. This combo pack features six packets each of Maurten's standard gel and its caffeinated one, both awesome sources of quick, easy-to-digest carbs on the go. 

Bravo Sierra Active Set
Bravo Sierra

This no-nonsense kit featuring anti-bacterial body wipes, shampoo + body wash + shave gel, deodorant and SPF 30 moisturizing lotion is the perfect addition to any exercise enthusiast’s gym bag.

Kore Short

Life is too short to hit the gym in crappy mesh basketball shorts. Upgrade to these stylish, quick-drying winners featuring four-way stretch, a breathable boxer brief liner and what can only be described as majestic levels of comfort, and your workouts will never be the same.

Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover
Flint and Tinder

This hoodie is a subtle way to say "it's time to retire that ratty old one you've been wearing since college." It'll last a lot longer than that old one too.

Spy Optic Flynn 5050

With the weather warming up, bike rides come calling, but unless you're training for Le Tour, why not mix a little style with your substance? The HD+ lens tech in these lightweight frames ensure you'll see as good as you look. 

Ten Thousand Interval Pant

Ten Thousand’s Interval Short, with nearly 4,000 five-star reviews, represents the pinnacle of workout shorts. The newer long-legged version — rocking the same premium performance fabric and zippered, no-bounce hip pockets — is equally fantastic.

Lululemon Surge Warm 1/2 Zip

Lightweight, sweat-wicking Rulu fabric, reflective details and thumbholes make this zippy pullover perfect for chilly runs in the early morning or late evening.

JBL Under Armour FLASH X Sport In-Ear Headphones

These IPX7-rated waterproof buds offer five hours of workout-fueling music per charge, plus an extra 20 hours in the low-profile case. Coolest feature? Simply tap the left one to drop the volume, so you can hear your surroundings  (or workout partner) while still rocking out.

Theragun Mini (RED)

With three speeds and 150 minutes of battery life, the Mini packs loads of muscle-relaxing percussion massage power into a pocket-sized profile. A portion of the purchase price of this limited-edition RED version goes to the Global Fund to fight pandemics around the world.

JaxJox DumbbellConnect

On the heels of the award-winning KettlebellConnect comes this high-tech set. Hoist 8–50 pounds per hand at the touch of a button, join live or on-demand workouts (via the JaxJox app, 30 days free, then $12.99 per month) and track your pump with real-time data.
