How a program for special needs athletes helps them find more than fitness

When you're born under the special needs umbrella; when you get frustrated because no one can understand what you're trying to say; when you are angry or depressed or antsy and don't quite know what to do with those feelings, you might respond in any number of ways. Maybe you lash out. Or withdraw. Or just stay in bed until your mom practically has to pull you out.

Don't know where to put your smartphone during a run? Try Nathan Sports' armband

It's no surprise that more and more people are exercising with their smartphone in tow. Whether you like to listen to music, podcasts or simply stay connected, having a phone handy while running, biking, hiking, or working out in a gym is a fact of life for many people. The problem arises in just how to transport the phone without impacting your movement. That's why the interest in smart watches has risen, as many of the functions of your phone can be replaced with a smaller device strapped to your wrist. Not bad, but now have to shell out another couple of hundred dollars (plus you've got another gadget to learn).
