I vote for the Kinect sensor. It's so much fun and you get a great cardio workout from all the jumping. Plus, it takes goofy pictures of you mid-jump!

I'd buy a heavier set of weights. Go up 5 pounds more than you currently have. I find it to be a great way to "see" results - especially when the scale is taking its sweet time to move!

I love my yoga mat. I would definitely recommend one. The air stepper sounds nice as well.

I like the idea of connect, since that could involve your kids too. Otherwise new workout clothes all the way for me!

I would buy new workout clothes...but that's just me. Kinect sounds fun though!

The Kinect does sound like a lot of fun. You do seem to have a pretty good set up already with a variety of work out options.

I, myself, have been thinking of a yoga mat so I agree with Gratteciella about the yoga mat.

Kinect sounds like a ton of fun, so I'd try that.

Other things you might want are little dumbells (mine are great for at home workouts), a yoga mat, or new gym clothes!

For Xmas I got a a $50 Target gift card. This year I've decided to actually spend it on me and what I want so I'm trying to figure out how best to use it towards fitness. I have a work out ball, resistance bands, a video that I like to use for quick weight lifting (found here on Spark), and I use Couch 2 5k for running in the evening (when its not snowing or below freezing). I also have an elliptical and treadmill but I rarely use them as they take up a lot of space in my daughter's play area. I was considering getting a Kinect bar for our xbox or an air stepper (not the cheap plastic one). Anyone have any advice?
