Are Shaker Bottles Necessary?

Protein powders, pre-workout, and other pre-workout supplement shakes can be dense. Shaker bottles help break up unnecessary clumps and provide a smoother texture. The bottles also reduce the corners and nooks that can trap unmixed powder.

How do I choose a protein shaker?

Protein shaker bottles should be durable materials with BPA and phthalate-free plastic or glass. Stainless steel options are also great for keeping your drink cold. Look for rounded edges to ensure smooth textures and a durable whisk or mixing grate.

The biggest thing to look for is the right size. If you prefer a drink throughout a workout, you’ll need something bigger. If you’re always on the go, a smaller size could be more convenient to carry. Once you’ve chosen the right bottle, you can get back to what matters most — your health.

The 5 best treadmill workouts to gain fitness fast (and feel great after)
Mix up your treadmill routine and make your workout fun
Three athletes running on treadmills at Stride.

Paul Le was used to gyms measured in the tens of thousands of square feet. Recruited out of a Texas college by the UFC (yes, that UFC) as a trainer for the promotion's California-based gyms, Le worked his way up the ladder, advising fighters and everymen alike before moving into management.

But just like big box stores of the same size, he found a lack of personality, even intimacy, in their spaces. And so, in November of 2020, after a decade with the company, he left, assuming a new role as the general manager of the Little Italy San Diego location of Stride Fitness, a treadmill-based interval training concept. The difference, he said, has been night and day.

The 12 benefits of jumping rope (it’s not just for your inner child)
This classic workout technique has more pros than you may realize
Jump rope with shoes and weights

Unless you’re 7 years old or a regular at the local boxing gym, jumping rope probably isn’t part of your daily workout routine. But, if you’re looking for an easy, inexpensive way to get your blood pumping and burn fat fast, it should be. It’s deceptively simple, but jumping rope is one of the single best cardio fitness exercises, and not only that, but there are so many benefits of jumping rope.

The benefits of jumping rope and why you should get started
It's inexpensive
Let’s get the most obvious benefit out of the way: Jumping rope is cheap. Compared to a gym membership, buying a treadmill, or splurging on a new Peloton, it’s incredibly inexpensive. For less than $30, you can score a complete jump rope set (with or without weights) to get started immediately.
It’s simple and easy
Poor form is one of the fastest ways to injure yourself while exercising. Thankfully, jumping rope is hard to do wrong. Just start with an appropriately sized rope, jump that rope, and repeat at your own pace.
It’s great for recovery
Because jumping rope is so simple, it’s an excellent way to recover from sports-related injuries. Many athletes and physical therapists regard it as the ideal baseline exercise. This is because jumping rope aligns and engages your entire body. Done correctly, it promotes good posture and form while getting you back into “fighting shape.”
It’s versatile and perfect for any fitness level
Jumping rope can be as moderate or as high-intensity as you want it to be, making it a perfect workout for everyone from couch potatoes to pro athletes. Beginners can start with slower, intermittent jump sessions of 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, and build up their stamina from there.

Running sucks — or at least it seems like it when you're just starting out. For a lot of people, learning to run, bike, swim, or one of countless other forms of aerobic activity like HIIT workouts is an exercise in discomfort. But before you head out the door in your brand-new workout gear, intent on suffering for some vague sense of "fitness," let an expert weigh in. "You have to have a plan," said Mecayla Froerer, Head of Fitness Programming at iFit.

Not familiar with iFit? You likely are familiar with its hardware-based dependents, including NordicTrack, ProForm, and Freemotion, which, along with its stand-alone app, stream interactive workouts across a host of disciplines. Some of the modalities in which Froerer's trainers concoct plans for every need and all its related machines are running, biking, rowing, and HIIT classes. It's no surprise, then, that Froerer, a swimmer by training and a runner of late, appreciates moving broadly across disciplines.
