Head to the beach or hit the streets, but don’t be a gym rat. Here are some essentials you’ll need for your outdoor workout.
Don’t have time to commit to a workout, but have plenty of errands to run, then do them wearing the Reebok EasyTone Flip Flop. These aren’t just ordinary flip flops, they tone your leg muscles with every step you take so why not take a step in a healthier direction. Sold at Lady Foot Locker and Nordstrom stores, $60.
It’s lightweight, portable, and keeps you in shape. The Valslide looks simple but packs a lot of power. Use it indoors or outdoors to do push ups, squats, lunges, and many other exercises for a better butt, flat abs, toned arms and legs, and anything else you want to improve. Want proof, Jennifer Garner uses it– enough said! Valslide.com, $29.99.
