Onnit Chimp Primal Bell Will Add A Little Flavor To Your Workouts

chimp-primal-bell-kettlebells

Crossfit is gaining popularity and with it, the use of kettlebells. These have been around for a while, by the way, but now that they’re popular again, why stop at buying a simple ball-shaped one, when you can get yourself the Chimp Primal Bell from Onnit? It weighs 36lbs. (1 pood, for those of you who speak Crossfit-ese) and is made from “chip resistant iron.” That just probably means it’s made from iron, which tends to be more malleable and not chip in general, rather than some form of special iron that doesn’t chip.

It’s $86 for a kettlebell with some personality.

‘Move’ Tank Top Shocks You With an Electric Jolt When You Mess Up in Pilates

Senseable

Pilates has a lot of benefits, but it’s not the easiest discipline to learn. Practice makes perfect and eventually you will get the hang of it.

Most people learn the basics by going to class and having an instructor show them or help them through it. But what about those days when you’re running late or when you don’t find a suitable class schedule? Well, for those times, there’s the ‘Move’ tank top.

It’s a state-of-the-art top that’ll give you a mild electric shock whenever you make a mistake in Pilates. That’s the signal for you to go over it again. You’ll know you’ve done it right the second time around when you hear three buzzes. It also hooks up with an app, which you can run on your smartphone to check out your overall performance.

The design was presented at last month’s Wearable Technologies conference in San Francisco, where its designer Jennifer Darmour explains: “It’s not meant to replace an instructor, but it can certainly help you understand the technique even when the instructor isn’t around.” She has big plans for it too, as she aims to have similar clothing ”that zap golfers, baseball pitchers and yoga lovers whenever they make a wrong move.”
