The fit list

THE BOOTS

If we said the lat­est Adi­das ‘Ne­meziz’ boots made you play like Lionel Messi, we’d be telling fibs. But say­ing they’ve been built for you and the most ag­ile foot­ball play­ers in the game is within the realms of truth. The rev­o­lu­tion­ary ‘Tor­sion Tapes’ tech de­liv­ers the ul­ti­mate fit, while a dual-lock col­lar se­cures the an­kle in place to en­able ex­plo­sive change of di­rec­tion. (NB: ex­plo­sive change of di­rec­tion not in­cluded.) Avail­able in ‘Sta­dium’, ‘Cage’ and ‘Street’ ver­sions, which sounds far more edgy than it’s meant to. NE­MEZIZ 17+ 360 AGILITY FIRM GROUND BOOTS, $440; ADI­DAS.COM.AU

THE TRAINER

Dubbed ‘the world’s most trav­elled fit­ness ex­pert’, we defy any­one not to gain fit­spi­ra­tion from cheeky Brit Ross Ed­g­ley. Not only is he an ab­so­lute gi­ant of a man with the big­gest grin (and rig) out there, Ed­g­ley is known for dream­ing up the most far-fetched chal­lenges, then go­ing ahead and nail­ing them. Hit up @ROSSEDGLEY on In­sta­gram and next thing you know, you’ll be con­tem­plat­ing a triathlon while car­ry­ing a tree. Gen­uinely.

THE GAD­GET

These days, phones can do pretty much any­thing. So we saluted Garmin when it an­nounced a 360-de­gree 5.7K cam­era, be­cause no phone cap­tures next-level video footage quite like the ‘VIRB 360’. Kayak­ing down river rapids or moun­tain bik­ing through rough out­back ter­rain, the 4K ’Spher­i­cal Sta­bil­i­sa­tion‘ makes all footage smooth and steady. Our best ad­vice to max­imise cam­era use is novel – read the man­ual. $

THE KIT

These Texta-like Aus­fit Tor­sion Bars are less for the purist mono­chrome lovers and more for fit­ness junkies who de­light in colour co­or­di­na­tion. Com­ing in set weights and lengths, they are per­fect for all man­ner of train­ing – be it home gyms, out­door train­ing and boot­camps – while still ass i build­ing grip str 4fit

THE EVENT

Usain Bolt is to hang up his spikes in Lon­don this Au­gust, so if bid­ding farewell to the great­est ath­lete of all time isn’t rea­son enough to tune into the IAAF World Cham­pi­onships, we don’t know what is. A hand­ful of Aussie medal hope­fuls pro­vide fur­ther in­cen­tive: Kur­tis Marschall a name to watch in the pole vault, and fin­gers crossed for a re­peat of Dane Bird-smith’s Rio Olympics hero­ics in the 20km walk (not to men­tion the post-event in­ter­view, too).
