What Fitness Items Are Most Important to You?

Speak Up: Your Top 5 Fitness Items

Exercise is obviously really important to me, and although I'm a huge fan of Madonna, I'm in no way a "Material Girl." I must admit, though, there are a handful of fitness gadgets and items I just can't live without. Here are my top five favorites:

  1. My yoga mat (Manduka, of course).
  2. My Specialized Ruby Comp road bike — she's a beauty.
  3. My Pearl Izumi trail running sneakers that keep my feet stable and dry.
  4. Moisture-wicking sports bra (gotta keep those girls supported and comfy).
  5. My iPhone Armpocket which I never exercise without.

What are your top five?

1. My television: I follow tons of fitness DVDs. 2. My hula hoop: So much fun and a great workout. 3. My belly dance hip scarf: I practice about three hours per week. 4. My Gaiam yoga mat (which I hope to upgrade soon) 5. My head scarf: I don't like resting my head where my feet previous stomped on, and it's great for keeping the hair looking nice.

Some of mine aren't directly fitness equipment so they might not count, but I couldn't get the same quality workouts without them: 1. My adjustable freeweights. So much easier than having a bajillion sets taking up space in my basement. 2. The internet - for research, new workout ideas, blogs and podcasts by reputable fitness pros. 3. My stability ball. 4. Currently - the book 'The Female Body Breakthough' by Rachel Cosgrove. Exposure to the fitness philosophy of both her and her husband Alwyn has revolutionized my workouts. I've been getting amazing results by following her workout outlined in the book. 5. My sports bra - without which any and all workouts would be excruciating.

1. Bosu ball--I use it for legs, abs, and even push-ups. 2. Bowflex Ultimate 2--since we put our home gym together I use my bowflex machine for most of my strength training. It's so verstatile and easy to transition between exercises. 3. Bowflex treadclimber--my favorite home cardio machine. I barely touch our treadmill anymore. 4. My underarmor sports bras--I love how they dry so quickly and keep the sweat off of me. 5. My husband's old soccer shorts that give me lots of room to move.
