Athena Roar

Love running when you travel? Add one of these.

This is an interesting way to tackle these situations (the unsavoury ones, that is), the Athena Roar :

NB : although this version's strongly focussed on the safety aspect, I'd love to see many of the common fitness-monitoring functions built in to the device. And, of course, a way to export all of that data.

NB : We've recommended a number of books, DVDs & pieces of equipment over the years. Here's the complete list :

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.
