What's the Most Expensive Piece of Fitness Gear You Own?

What's the Most Expensive Piece of Fitness Gear You Own?

I know we are not supposed to love material possessions, but right now I am carrying on a hot and steamy affair with my new road bike.

I mean hot and steamy as in burning up the calories and sweating profusely — and it's wonderful. Yep, I took the plunge and upgraded from my 10-year-old hybrid to a sweet ride by Specialized. I paid a pretty penny, but I know this relationship is going to last. My bike is by far the most expensive piece of fitness gear I own. What about you?

Fit, I am drooling over that bike!! I would love to get a new bike, I'm thinking mountain than road, and was saving some for it and the wedding but hello unexpected emergency and there goes my $$. Grrr. Wish bikes weren't so expensive. Hmm... the most expensive gear I own? Um.... my waterproof Timex heart rate monitor which just freaking broke over the weekend in the pool!! Water somehow got in it and bam, messed with it. :( Other than that, perhaps my collection of workout dvds.

Hmm. I can't remember which costs more...either my bike or my Garmin.

Probably my elliptical machine, but I really want a Precor elliptical (they are over $3000 for certain models). Maybe when mine dies, I'll replace it with a Precor...that would be so cool!

My skiing outfit. It was over $300 bucks.

I would say my skiing equipment, way too much money invested in that, but I haven't used them in about 3 years. So out of the equipment I actually use, it is my running shoes. Or my gym membership.

Definitely my bike. I dropped like $600 on it and unfortunately do not use it that much :(

In aggregate, my lululemon workout clothes :) Going by one piece alone, my Garmin forerunner GPS watch. SO handy though!

syako — I think the Trek Madrone WSD are great bikes, but the Ruby Comp was on sale at a bike store 1/2 mile from my house. Just had it fitted and am rearing to go!

My shoes! I have a bunch of gear for a lot of different sports, but none of it is independently expensive.

My bike! It's the first bike I've had since I was 10 years old, and I'm loving it. I rode 12 miles yesterday. My iPod comes in at a close second, though.

oh, my... she's BEAUTIFUL, fit ! My tri bike - at $1100 - is my most expensive piece of gear.. but the Ironman itself is getting quite pricey (plane tickets to cozumel, hotel, race entry fee at $550, shipping my bike, nutrition, food, gear, etc.)

our treadmill, but we're going to be getting rid of it soon.. it's served it's purpose (got my butt off the couch and got into fitness), I don't need it anymore, so I figured it can find a new loving home ;-)

Loves it Fit! I see you didn't go for that Trek after all. I got a road bike a month ago and it's by far the most expensive piece of fitness gear. But like you, it's worth it and it will definitely last!
