The Secret is in the Beats... I mean Beets...

Extreme athletes are bar none the best sources when it comes to uncovering the best tools to maximize performance. Most of them have made it their life's work to uncover secrets that will give them a sustainable edge. Yes, there are those that cheat and take HGH or steroids or androstenedione but the vast majority of super athletes - especially athletes like ultra marathoners and triathletes rely on more home-spun solutions. The typical cheats just won't work when you're running 130 miles.

Customer Questions about the NGR Men's Limited Edition Shoes

Hey NGR,

I am looking for a new pair of shoes soon to go jogging/running in and workout and would like some more info. The website does not answer my particular questions maybe because maybe they are TOO particular, wanted to know if you can help me out:

1) Is the one model the only men's shoe you have?

Answer: We just launched these so yes, they are the only model we have for now. They are styled like a hybrid golf/workout shoe and have a semi-studded bottom for extra traction. This is to keep them very versatile and multi-usage.

Fitness Tip #1....proper technique is a "MUST" when lifting weights.

Filed under: ,

I have been to many gyms in my lifetime, and the one thing that never fails to astonish me is the lack of attention or education that gym members get when it comes to proper technique. In my mind, if the people running the organization do not make it a priority to teach their clients how to use the equipment properly, then the client should demand their money back and never return to that place"ever"again. The risks that can occur in an untrained or unsupervised person are high and the result could do you more "harm" than "good".

Neck, Shoulder, or Back Pain? Think about your Thoracic Spine

Unfortunately for all those with neck, shoulder, and back pain due to poor posture, the initial cause of our pains is..... gravity. However, while we can not yet escape the torments of gravity, our sedentary lifestyle continually exacerbates these postural problems when we sit all day at a desk, in front of the computer, or in front of a TV.

Your Fitness Personality

I bet everyone out there has taken a Myers-Briggs test or one of those fun online personality-type quizzes. You know the kind I’m talking about - the quizzes that give you a round of options for your favorite weekend activity, what you love to do with friends, and what your ideal date would be. But did you know that the answers to these quizzes - your real personality type - influences how you work out?

Men and Women

Do men and women need different things when working out? Intuitively, we'd think what works for Jane should work for John. We know, of course, that John will use heavier weights and sprint a little faster but does the workout or diet really need to be all that different?
