Most sports grow out of a simple formula—ball plus stick, ball plus kick, or car plus explosion. Obtain the necessary integers with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 toward running, swimming, and cycling gear at T&R Endurance Sports in Brooklyn.
T&R Endurance Sports' staff of devoted athletes guides fellow sportsfolk through a triathlon-ready trove of apparel, footwear, and accessories. A selection of shorts and T-shirts stylishly sheathes cheerful muscles ($30–$45), and fuel belts and hydration holsters manage metabolic conflagrations for a steady, controlled burn throughout long races ($29.95–$45.95). Toes wriggle with delight in the individual sleeves of Vibram FiveFingers shoes, which simulate running barefoot to strengthen ankles, feet, and resistance to quizzical glances ($80–$125). During submarine voyages, the tinted lenses of TYR's Orion goggles facilitate sight and protect peepers ($30). Hands reach out to the flexible, spinning segments of The Stick, a stretching tool that is intended to ease muscle soreness without the rigors of capturing a distance-running genie ($32.99–$35.99).
