2018 Fitties: The Best Fitness- and Health-Related Products We’ve Tried

2018 Fitties: Fitness Buys & Tech

Best affordable fitness equipment company: ProSource. From resistance bands to yoga mats to weights to boxes, they have EVERYTHING your home gym needs at a great quality — and a great price.

Best beginner workout: YOUv2. Two words about this workout system: freakin’ delightful. The instruction is motivating and cheerful without being condescending, plus it features background exercisers who are diverse in age, race, and size having a blast.

Best product to enhance hydration: Liquid I.V. Don’t let the clinical name scare you off. This is basically a clean (no preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, gluten, dairy or  soy) powdered drink mix with electrolytes. It tastes great and adding one packet to 16 ounces of water has the same effect as drinking two to three glasses of water because you absorb it better.

Best activity monitor that doesn’t look like an activity monitor: Nokia Steel HR. So simple to use and looks more like a pretty watch than your usual fitness tracker — although it tracks everything from steps to heart rate to sleep!

Best standing mat (that does far more than support you as you stand): Varidesk ActiveMat Rocker. Standing while you work is so much better than sitting, but the ActiveMat Rocker takes your standing posture to the next level by giving you a way to move … without having to go anywhere.

Best healthy eating app: YouAte. This beautiful app makes intuitive eating fun and easy — plus, it lets you set goals and track your progress. And, it’s free!
