Lululemon Wunder Under Pant (Hi-Rise), $98

These pants make me feel like I am naked, which sounds totally weird, but they are just that comfortable! They stretch and move with my body seamlessly and the hi-rise fit makes them extra-flattering. I wear these even when I’m not working out.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Garmin vivofit jr., $79.99

These Garmin trackers for kids are one of the best gifts I’ve ever given to my children. The first day they got them they were arguing about who would do what chore because they all wanted to earn coins. My youngest hates taking showers or baths, yet he rushed home in that first week he had it and told me he needed to take a bath right away (again because he wanted to earn points). My kids have step competitions between the three of them, which helps them be more active on days they would rather sit and play on their Kindle. I can track their sleep to see if they are getting enough of it and if a bad mood is related to how well they slept the night before. My youngest really likes timing things, so long gone are the days of me saying I’ll help you in two minutes. He times me and says, “Time is up, are you ready to help!?” I literally could rave on about how much I love these trackers—and I was someone who was skeptical at first about giving an activity tracker to a kid!” —Dorothy Beal of Mile Posts and #TeamWR contributor

Frontier Bites Macadamia Pineapple Coconut, $4.99

These crunchy, granola-like cubes are super tasty, with a simple list of ingredients and only 100 calories and 6g of sugar in a 5-piece serving. Definitely open these with family or friends to avoid eating the whole bag.” —Nicki Miller, managing editor

Bogg’s Trail Butter Ozark Original, $5.99

“Nut butter in a squeezable pouch? Yes, please. This is perfect for those trail runs when I need some extra nutrition—they are easy-to-eat (no mess or fuss!) and have almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts and more to create a liquid trail mix. I recommend all of the flavors!” —Allison Pattillo, contributing gear editor

“I have been a fan of VIVOBAREFOOT for quite awhile so when these new Wing Lux came out, I had to try them. They are lightweight and minimal—and the new leather makes them perfect to wear from workout to brunch to everywhere in between. I finally found a workout shoe that works with every outfit.” —Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor
