Uncomfortable clothing

Uncomfortable clothing

Reebok have taken their EasyTone shoe concept to clothes. They have released tops and trousers that create resistance with every move, giving them the same toning capabilities.

Why it matters

Functional clothes are on the rise, even those that now are deliberately uncomfortable to wear (with resistance to every move). Will fashion brands have to tick a growing number of boxes - style, function, value, health and fitness – in order to remain competitive and relevant to consumer demand?

Paint war against depression

In order to raise awareness of the symptoms, seriousness and the treatability of depression, Portuguese authorities have organised paint mobs in five cities. People will be invited to paint a wall where some of the symptoms are written. The campaign comes with a website named ‘Saia do Escuro’ (Come Out of the Dark) that offers information about depression.

Fit in the city

Rent-a-Fun is a small bike rental company that has repositioned its offering from tourism to health. The idea came from a local baker who used Rent-a-Fun for half and hours exercise cycling in Lisbon. There is no gym membership or other hidden costs besides the €3.50 for a class of 45 to 60 minutes – that includes the bicycles, necessary equipment and a nutrition consultation.
