Today's Featured Topics

Bicycle Seats
Riding a bike is great exercise. But, supporting most of your body weight on a bicycle seat (saddle) can definitely cause some medical problems. Manufacturers have come out with a variety of new designs in attempt to take pressure off of the body's center line. Read more about it in our review: "Bicycle Seats"

Energy Bars
Nutrition bars, meal-replacement bars, energy bars....aren't they all the same thing? No, definitely not! If you're in the middle of a century ride or triathlon, you don't want something that contains fiber, minerals, or a lot of fat. To help keep them all straight, read our review: "Energy Bars"

Running Shoes
Running shoes have come a long way since Nike marketed the Cortez in 1972. Running shoes are now sophisticated orthopedic devices. It doesn't matter if you don't run competitively, you should have a good pair. Even walkers can benefit from wearing properly-fitted running shoes.

TITLE:  "Take A Load Off Your Heart"
AUTHOR:  Piscatella J, Franklin B
LENGTH:  380 pages
LIST PRICE:  $14.95

While this is not an exercise/fitness book, "Take A Load Off Your Heart" is a resource that you should seriously consider adding to your library if you are sedentary. Coronary artery disease is still a huge problem in the US. (Just ask lead author Joe Piscatella: he had a heart attack in his 30's.) This is unfortunate because heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) are highly preventable with proper diet and regular exercise. Mandatory reading for those with risk factors for heart disease!
