For ocean waves and meditation: Blue OsaCosta Rica offers gorgeous rainforest and ocean views to ease a tough workout, whether you're trying deep yoga bends or doing lunges on the sand.

Head injuries can come from a single jarring impact during a game, or from a series of smaller jolts. But in the midst of play, many blows aren't necessarily easy to spot by coaches, physicians or parents in attendance. A crop of new lightweight devices that athletes can wear on the field may help people on sidelines keep better track of hits to players' heads during games and practice sessions.Read more...
Tennis is not only a fun sport to play, but it can also offer many positive health benefits. In one recent study, people who played tennis for three hours per week at a moderate intensity level cut their risk of death in half. Tennis burns a lot of calories; for the average person one can expect to use from 450 to 600 calories per hour. Cardio is improved, along with coordination, agility, and reaRead more...

Barefoot-running enthusiasts long have believed that running without shoes or in minimalist footwear makes running easier, speedier and less injurious. But a surprisingly large number of new studies examining just how the body actually responds when we run in our birthday shoes or skimpy footwear suggest that for many people, those expectations are not being met. Consider, for instance, the findiRead more...
Inflammation isn't the sexiest fitness topic under the sun, but it's a vital bodily response to harm. If we get into a car accident, inflammation will protect injured joints through swelling; think of it as a surge of soldiers from the immune system racing in to begin repair. But chronic inflammation can contribute to all sorts of harmful conditions, ranging from heart conditions, to arthritis, toRead more...
1. Nail good form. The key to running (at any speed) is to practice proper running technique. That means keeping the upper body tall yet relaxed, striking the ground with the mid-foot landing under the hip, and swinging the arms forward and back (not side to side!) at low 90-degree angles. 2.
