Fit Picks for March

Addaday Type C Massage Stick

A new recovery product, the Type C Massage Stick is similar in design to other products on the market, with one exception – the “Gears”.  The gears, nooks that simulate the human elbow, are spaced to maximize muscle stimulation. The surface of the gears does not slip, catch or pull hair.
  
The Type C is great for shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tight and sore quads, hamstrings, shoulders, etc. It works by breaking up scar tissue, knots and adhesions from strenuous workouts. For best recovery results, use it after a workout.
 
Stephanie Smith Aiken absolutely LOVES the product and uses it in conjunction with her Grid and Trigger Point kit. “It is my go-to before and after my runs!”, she raves.

Amphipod Vizlet LED Reflectors MSRP

Looking for super bright and fun reflectors? With most of our runs in the morning or after work, it’s more than likely going to be dark outside. Wearing reflective gear, lights, or safety vests is essential to avoid accidents with other runners, cyclists, and vehicles.The Amphipod Vizlet LED Reflectors are fun, brightly colored, have a flashing light and clip on magnetically. More importantly, they are essential for safety, increasing the chances of being seen on the road.

Oiselle long roga Short

They’ve finally flown south! Oiselle (French word for “bird”), is a Seattle-based running apparel company I found years ago in Canada. These running clothes are stand-out fabulous, well-priced and perfectly cut for the female form. 1st Place Sports now carries a few Oiselle essentials, including the “Long Roga” in vibrant hues. Pair these shorts with any spring race or long run, and they’ll become your default workout uniform.

Adidas Performance Fast Road Runner Jacket

If a few days of sunshine have you ready to shed heavy layers, try the Adidas lightweight performance jacket. It’s climalite material is light as air and moisture resistant in spring showers. In fact, it doesn’t even feel like a jacket, more like a translucent layer of soft. It’s whimsical and forgiving, so it works perfectly for a post-workout cover.
