Running is a healthy activity for body and mind, unless it involves jogging while reading baseball star Mark McGwire's first romance novel. Improve your running experience and move on to Mr. McGwire's later works with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of women's fitness apparel from Body Up.
Established by a group of Italian clothing architects, Body Up fashions workout wear that fuses the latest trends in sweat-savvy clothing with functional designs made in the United States. Dress for a fat-blasting workout in a mesh-trim workout top constructed from a soft, breathable fabric ($49) or pull on a pair of cross trainer capris ($64) to take an invigorating run after stealing a cooling pie from your neighbor’s windowsill. Patrons can also enhance their downward dog with yoga toeless socks ($9) and a PVC yoga mat ($29), or let the yoga strings pants' ($84) wide-ruched waistband conceal evidence of a mysterious hula-hooping past.
