Fit Friday: Athleta Hyper Focused sports bra review.

One of the toughest things to do when you’re active as a female is: finding a sports bra that not only does the job it’s been bought to do, but is comfortable too. If it’s not too tight, in the day and age of the 500-strap sports bra, it’s damn near impossible to get on, […]

FasciaBlaster® review, and how it changed my workout recovery.
