Be Thankful For These Five Turkey Day Fitness And Sports Products

Thanksgiving--that time of year when we give thanks for the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie with which we stuff our faces. It's a time for family and friends and celebrating all of the awesomeness in our lives. It's also a time for football and for contemplating how to counter the effects of an excess intake of calories. These five products honor this great American holiday and the sports and fitness fans who celebrate it.

Nestle Working On "Exercise In A Bottle"

What if you could get the benefits of exercise without stepping foot in a gym, on a track, a court, without waking up early to get in your run, make your yoga class, go for that bike ride? What if you could just drink something and get the kind of calorie burn you would if you put in a couple thousand meters on the rower? Nestle scientists may not be far off from developing that "magic potion."

Belt-Scooter: Ride It, Then Wear It

It's a belt...no, it's a scooter. Nope. It's both. Corny Superman references aside, the Collapsible Belt-Scooter, designed by Adam Torok, is genius. It provides you with a means of transportation quicker than walking, and when you get where you're going, the scooter transforms into a belt, so you don't have to worry about finding a place to stow it.

Hendo: World's First Hoverboard (No Jokes This Time)

Remember the HUVr? It was supposed to be the first hoverboard (like the one in Back To The Future), but it turned out to be a prank, and Tony Hawk helped dupe us with his appearance in HUVr's video. Well, Tony just made an appearance in another hoverboard video, but this time it's no joke.

Fight The Cold With Booze Smuggling Mittens

Alcohol concealing wearable items are not a new trend, but they're often lacking the functionality of the original item. The ability to covertly smuggle alcohol is of course the priority, but serving dual functions would be far more practical, don't you think? This winter, a greatly innovative solution has been delivered that has seasonal benefits.

Rathaus: Zurich's First Bike Up Cafe

Cities around the world have been encouraging locals to embrace cycling in lieu of contributing to environmental pollution by driving. Businesses have also been embracing this growing trend, offering a number of convenient services to cyclists. The latest one has to be among the most innovative yet.

Zumer Sport Incorporates Sports Materials Into Their Products

Duffel bags, coin purses, book bags, iPad cases, sunglasses cases, wallets--these are just some of the products that Zumer Sport makes. Of course, other companies product these things as well, however Zumer's products are unique, because they incorporate sports into their designs.

Turn Your Treadmill Into A Workspace With SurfShelf

Recently, I've been profiling products like the TrekDesk and FitDesk, which incorporate a workspace into a piece of fitness equipment. This is a great concept--working fitness into a sedentary job. The SurfShelf allows you to do this, as well, just on a smaller, less expensive scale.

Build Strength, Improve Acceleration And Work On Endurance With Keiser Air300 Runner

It's really hard for a machine to mimic a sprint. Treadmills come close, but it's hard to change pace and run all-out on a treadmill. Ellipticals confine you to a limited range of motion in your stride. However, the Keiser Air300 Runner gives you a range of motion in your stride and allows you to change your pace.

Deeper Turns Your Smartphone Into A Fish Finder

Aspiring outdoors men (and outdoors women), are you planning your next or first fishing trip? If you are (or if I just inspired you to do so with my lead), maybe you're thinking you could use some help finding a honey hole. Well, fear not, Deeper Fishfinder can help.
