The Kettlebell

The Kettlebell has become a pretty popular tool for CrossFit enthusiasts.  Intrigued?  The Kettlebell amplifies your power output, trains your body on how to contend with a constantly changing center of gravity and bridges the gap between strength and cardio training. Try it!  Read more here.

Foam Rollers

You might be wondering, what exactly could this soft, comfortable-looking bolt of foam do for my fitness routine?  Well, have you ever felt tightness in your body?  If the answer is yes, then the foam roller can help!  Foam rollers provide self-myofascial release (SMR), helping you roll away your aches and pains.  Read more here.
