Outside Stride

Who says you can’t take it with you? These fitness tools can easily join you just about anywhere you go — or give you some workout options in a home too space-strapped for full-size equipment

Powerful Resistance
Get a full body, strength training workout by way of an ultra-portable gear package — that’s what you’ll find with the TRX Pro Kit. With the included DVD to guide you, this killer routine can be set up in minutes almost anywhere in your home or office, then easily broken down for storage or transport. Resistance band training uses your own body weight to push you to higher levels of core stability, strength and flexibility; $199.95,


Bring your workout with you with the Journey Gym – a lightweight, compact, full-fitness solution in what we’ve got to admit is a pretty nifty case. Not only does this pack come with a resistance band system, the case itself also works as a stair-stepper for cardio aerobic workouts. Combine the two, and you’ll be shredding pounds at lightening speed. A great no-excuses workout solution for those who spend a lot of time on the road; $299,
Hip Hopper
It doesn’t get much more portable than this: the JumpSnap. Jumping rope burns through those extra calories like grease on fire, but the less coordinated among us are at constant risk of tangling our feet or tripping. With this cordless “rope”, there’s no risk of a missed skip. The handles automatically track the number of jumps, time and the calories burned based on the user’s weight and height; $39.99,

Mouth Relief
We all need saliva to moisten and cleanse our mouths and digest food, so when we run short on this vital substance, things can quickly get uncomfortable. Fortunately, there are some solutions. Dry mouth can be caused by many factors. Common symptoms include: a sticky, dry feeling in the mouth; frequent thirst; sores; a dry feeling in the throat; burning and tingling; red tongue; sore throat; hoarseness; and bad breath. If you’re suffering from dry mouth, try chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugar-free candy. Drink plenty of water to help keep your mouth moist and protect your teeth by brushing with fluoride toothpaste, using a fluoride rinse and visiting your dentist regularly. Breathe through your nose, not your mouth, as much as possible, and use an over-the-counter artificial saliva substitute if necessary.
