  • Thanks for the great article. It will help alot.
  • Thanks for sharing. I believe these things could be very helpful in changing up and making exercise more interesting.
  • I could not pick just one "gadget", I have several as I have a home gym and I am a runner..I guess if I HAD to pick one that I couldn't do without it would be my spin bike, I have a professional one (an older style) and can do RPM classes at home...second favorite I guess would be my Nike + band to log my pace, mileage and calories burned when I run
    I am 64 so not into heavy duty workouts but I do lift weights, walk every day with my dog, bought the DVD "Tony And The Folks" from Beachbody, and have a mat. Seems to help me keep fit. I am also gardening now so more exercise which I quite enjoy.
    No gadgets at my house, but since one of the 'staff experts' mentioned TRX I thought I would ask: how are we supposed to record TRX in our fitness tracker? (I attend a TRX class at my Y.)
  • I love the traditionals - home gym, dvds, etc. Here are some you may not have seen before that are great additions: Trek Desk (allows you to walk and work at the same time); Manta and StingRay - take the pain out of back and front squats by cushioning the bar while helping you keep it in the right place; Versagripp - use this to help pick up heavy weights without overly pressuring your forearms; paceweights - if you have metal dumbbells, you can increase your weights by half pound increments; kettleguard - best cushion for wrists I've seen when using a kettlebell; TRX - great travel strength training approach; The Grid foam roller - small and hollow, so you can pack your foam roller in a suitcase!
  • I really like many of these things. I love my treadmill, and fitness DVDs are great! I have quite a collection. I want to try the balance board next.
