Keep your runs warm and productive with these must-have gloves

Running or biking in the winter means figuring out a way to keep your hands warm without relying on bulky insulated gloves that quickly overheat during exercise. The PhD HyFi Wind Training Gloves from Smartwool won't let you down. The slim design features a comfortable fit, and the back of the glove is windproof to keep out the chilly air. On the palm and fingers you'll find silicon grippers to help you grab onto things like water bottles or the handlebars of a bike, and the thumb and index finger are coated with touch-screen compatible material to allow you to operate your smart phone without having to take off your gloves. They are made by Smartwool, after all, so 37 percent of the gloves material is merino wool, providing excellent insulation and breathability while remaining soft to the touch of your hand.

Here's what happens when a Flywheel addict tries SoulCycle for the first time

There are 30 seconds left in class, and a rush of adrenaline overtakes my entire body. I forget my problems, responsibilities, and insecurities. I focus on me. You have no limits – I repeat this to myself every time. I see my name jumping on the Torqboard (a competitive meter that tracks who has the highest points in the class), the music speakers are blasting, my legs are moving at lightning speed, and I'm pouring my very all into the bike. It's the final 10 seconds, and I completely zone out – letting go of any resistance from my body in hopes of reaching a new goal. Time's up. My legs gradually come to a halt. I look up at the board and see my score. Yes, it's significantly higher than what it was last time. I instantly feel fulfilled and proud of myself. That's the high I get from Flywheel. It's why I've been hooked for eight months.
