With summer long gone and our normal gym routines not as accessible as they were pre-Covid, many of us have sadly said ‘goodbye’ to our summer bodies and ‘hello’ to a few more pounds. However, with today’s technologies, on-demand fitness apps, and the ability to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, it’s easy to indulge in activities that are as good for the body as they are for the soul. With convenient apps, outside activities, and in-home options, fitness can still be accessible and fun. So don your workout gear and get ready to sweat with some of the fall’s best fitness offerings. From those who are just beginning their fitness journeys to workout junkies, there’s something for everyone to stay fit and stay safe :

Invented by a former U.S. Navy SEAL, the TRX, short for total-body resistance exercise, is an entire body workout system that uses your own bodyweight to whip you into shape. All that’s needed is the TRX system, which encompasses convenient straps and a secure weight to anchor them to (such as a solid door frame), gravity, and your own body weight, making it a workout that you can take and do anywhere. Want to work out in the park or take it when you travel? TRX has you covered. For those that want their own trainer on the go, users can download the TRX APP, which comes complete with world-class coaches, workouts, and ways to track and analyze your process. Users of the app will discover a wide variety of training options and ways to use the straps, including Yoga, suspension training, functional training, running, cycling, HIIT, and more.
The TRX HOME2 SYSTEM is currently on sale for $184.95. Upon signing up for the TRX app, you'll automatically receive a 14-day free trial of the TRX subscription. To continue the benefits of the subscription, you can choose to sign up at a price of $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year.
For those who aren’t afraid to splurge a little on their fitness, the NordicTrack RW900 brings the excitement and full-body benefits of rowing right to your living room. With an ergonomic seat made for pure comfort and a 22-inch touchscreen display that streams high-energy studio sessions with world-class trainers, you can pretend you’re a member of the Harvard rowing elite. A 1-year iFit membership is included for personalized training that will walk you through the machine’s 26 coach-controlled resistance levels. Of particular note is the design of the machine, which not is whisper-quiet, but also folds up for easy storage.
$1699. NordicTrack also offers special financing.
Get on the Green
Play a socially distanced round of golf for amazing mental and health benefits. While it may not be as intense of a workout as some of the previously mentioned options, it’s a great way to get outside and get your body moving. One of the biggest factors in a successful golf game is balance and a strong core. A proper round of golf will work and tone your abdominal muscles, lower back, and glutes. Even better if you opt to ditch the cart and play a full 18-hole game, you’ll have walked almost four miles. We know ditching the cart is unlikely, so just remember that strong mental focus on the game and a little bit of sunshine never hurt either. For the ultimate golf outing, opt for one of our merino wool polos, which will not only have you looking sharp but will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
