  • Game's On

    Game’s On

    Inspired by the friendly competitiveness of its founders, the Fitocracy app provides an instant fitness community that holds you accountable to your goals. The program also helps you measure progress, earn points, compete with other members and receive well-earned props. Free at www.fitocracy.com.

  • Raise the Bar

    Raise the Bar

    These gluten-free superfood bars from Probar provide just the right amount of boost when you’re flagging. Made from power foods like chia seeds, cashews and antioxidant fruits, they get their sweetness from organic brown-rice syrup and date paste. About $2 at natural markets. www.theprobar.com.

  • Pour It On

    Pour It On

    Sleek, silicone-protected and leakproof, Takeya glass water bottles keep water tasting fresh — and help you avoid the dangers of BPAs leached from plastic. Keeping all those disposable bottles out of landfills is pretty refreshing, too. In 16-, 18- and 22-ounce sizes. $18–$20 from www.takeyausa.com.

  • Real Recovery

    Real Recovery

    When you need to soothe stiff, sore muscles after a workout, skip the pills and grab this anti-inflammatory arnica cream instead. A 2007 study found arnica just as effective as ibuprofen in relieving arthritis pain, without the potential
    kidney-compromising side effects. Kneipp offers an effective, paraben-free formula ($22) at www.kneippus.com.
