Yakima delivers rooftop tent for your car for convenience camping

Who knew you could enjoy a camping experience and still get a penthouse view? The Yakima SkyRise 3 Rooftop Tent delivers on its name, with a tent that is pitched atop your car via an ingenious design that uses your vehicle's roof rack to support itself and the happy campers. Yakama has used its decades of experience in manufacturing racks to carry your bikes and kayaks to create this three-man tent (able to hold up to 600 pounds of campers) that is the fastest tent you'll ever assemble. When packed, the tent features a low profile on your car's roof. Once you undo the cover, you simply unfold the tent and extend the ladder. That's all there is to it.

Hate to work out? This gym has the workout for you

You could mistake the Exercise Coach for a travel agency, minus the posters of endless sand beaches. It's in a storefront in strip mall. When you walk in, you're not met by a blast of techno music, instructors shouting "Five more seconds!" or the stench of sweaty bodies.

Victoria Hoff: How I got in shape in only two weeks

"I know you hate me," my trainer, Vando, said with a grin. It was my first time at Punch Fitness, a boxing gym on New York City's Upper East Side, and I had just collapsed into a pool of sweat and quaking muscles after our latest round of burpees. It was actually my first time at any boxing gym, and it took all of 10 minutes for me to understand just why it's the workout of choice for some of the best bods in the modeling biz.

Wina Sturgeon: It's time to have your bike checked

It's almost the middle of summer. If the last time you had your bike tuned was five or more months ago when riding season first started, it's time to do it again, especially if you're riding a mountain bike on rough, unpaved trails. But don't neglect road bikes used for commuting on paved streets either.
