How not to embarrass yourself during pilates

There was a time when pilates classes seemed exclusively the domain of women, which is strange as the creator, Joseph Pilates was very much a man’s man, and was not only a bodybuilder but also a self defense trainer who developed this technique to help everyone become stronger and fitter.

Once a day at Gear for Multisport I get the question…

"How often should I replace my running shoes?"

Training into 2016

The Holiday season is over. No more parties at the Crown Lounge or Lilly's on the Lake.  The Ugly Run Sweater is packed away along with the inflatable Olaf from the Grogan's back yard.  College football Bowl Season is passed.  Its time to move on!

Below, are five methods, that when applied to our triathlon training, will help install consistent motivation as part of our personality and not as something that we have to acquire:

How to Step Up Your Abs Routine

When it comes to achieving flatter, firmer abdominal muscles – and therefore a more toned and shapely midriff – the first exercise that probably comes to mind is crunches.
