2: Wearable Activity Trackers
There are numerous brands out there that all have their own version of an activity tracker. These are great to track how many steps you’re getting in a day, the mileage you tend to walk and even how many calories you’re able to burn in a given day. Find one that allows you to set goals and enables you track your activity online or through an app on your phone for the best results!

3: Self-Myofascial Release Tools
One way to recover from some intense workouts or even just sore from over using the body is the technique of myofascial release.

Like with the activity tracker, find a GPS that enables you to view your progress online or through your phone for ease of tracking.
Average Price: $100-$400
