Unique Fitness Tool: Power Chute

Looking to add a little something extra to your run? How about a little resistance?

The Power Chute Speed Parachute ($47.50) is a great way to use air as a form of resistance while training or just plain old running. This is not a tool for the beginner or novice runner, but something that more experienced runners may enjoy to add resistance to an occasional run. It does remind me of something that would be straight out of "Inspector Gadget," but I think it would be a fun challenge every now and again. The best part? You feel like you can run like a gazelle when you take it off. You're going to need a little extra space though, I can't imagine that others on a crowded running path (like the one along the West Side Highway in NYC) would think this is a good idea. Buy it from
