Nestled in the Idaho mountains, members of this gym often find themselves forgetting about the burn while they get lost in the views.

Some might argue that it doesn’t matter where you do your daily workout, as long as you get some good exercise. Still, having a gym in an amazing location never hurts, especially when you can be motivated by the beautiful sights that surround you. At the Zenergy Health Club and Spa in Ketchum, ID, members often find that they get so wrapped up in the views that they are able to forget just how hard they are working.

At 48,000 square feet, the Zenergy facility features weight training and cardio gyms, a squash court, and tennis courts. It has both indoor and outdoor saline pools, and the outdoor pool has gorgeous views of nearby Bald Mountain. The health club has fully dedicated studios for classes in yoga, Pilates, cycling, and general fitness.

In addition to classes, members can

Unique twist on vitamin water ensures that the nutrients don't lose their potency over time by storing them in the cap until it's time to drink.

It's very difficult to get the recommended daily value of most nutrients from your diet alone, which is why vitamin supplements have been so popular for years. Unfortunately, the prospect of swallowing "horse pills" keeps many people from getting the vitamins they should. The introduction of different vitamin-infused waters and sports drinks over the last decade has gotten more consumers supplementing their nutrients than ever before, but recent research has shown that there is a problem with most of these beverages. As Vitamins A, B5, B12, and C sit in water for too long, they lose their potency and become less effective. Discovering this fact led to the launch of Activate--a new nutrient-enhanced beverage with a "twist."

Activate founders Anders Eisner and Burke Eiteljorg first came up with the idea for the product as they sat in an airport and tried to pour a powdered vitamin supplement into a water bottle. After making a mess

More often than not, it's the little things that can make or break your performance in a game. Almost all athletes with long hair have experienced the struggle of trying to keep your hair out of your face while you participate in your sport. While the problem is universal, there has really never been a product that consistently keeps sweaty hair out of your eyes effectively--until now. The CrossGrip Hairband by MaxFlow Sports uses patented technology to keep your hair in place, without the band stretching out over time. It's so effective, in fact, that it is used by athletes of all levels (from amateurs to pros) around the world.

MaxFlow Sports was founded by high school lacrosse coach Steve Hines, who realized that his players were constantly struggling with how to keep their hair out of their eyes while on the field. After doing some research, Hines discovered that there really wasn't a high-performance sports hairband on the market. Most products would slide around on players' heads or would stretch out over time, rendering them useless. Quitting his fulltime job, Hines vowed

Gaining a couple of pounds during the holidays is completely normal, but if you tend to gain more weight than you’d like each holiday season you may want to implement new habits.

1. Drink plenty of water.

Drinking water will cause you to be more full and in turn eat less. If you drink a glass of water before every meal, you’ll be unable to consume as many calories as you would have before.  If you have a weakness for sweets, be sure to drink a glass of water before you indulge.  There are also plenty of delicious drinks during the holidays, so to avoid indulging too much or dehydrating by drinking more alcohol than usual, drink a little water before and after these drinks.

2. Fill up on fruits and veggies.

When you’re filling your plate with holiday goodies, make sure that you fill half of the plate with healthy choices.  Fruits and veggies, like water, will fill you up so that you don’t eat too much of the high-calorie foods. You should still enjoy the holiday foods, but in smaller quantities. You don’t have to deprive
