What Is Your Favorite Exercise Gadget?

Technology has revolutionized working out. You can track your step, your heart rate, your laps, and even listen to music while swimming laps! I find gadgets motivating and always miss my heart rate monitor at the gym when I leave it at home.

Since I have been asking you about many of your favorite things, I am curious . . .

usually I say my Creative Zen (so great!) or gps, but with all the snow on the ground where I live right now I love my bike trainer which lets me peddle away in the living room. Not as great as riding outside, but any peddling is better than no peddling!

the nike + kit is great, but you have to have an ipod nano for it. I never go running outside without mine. great way to track your distance and calories and improve your speed.

I love my iPod - and with the new iPod Nanos that allow video, I can take my strength segments as clips from DVDs (Tamilee Webbs 'I Want That Body', Kathy Smith's 'Lift Weights To Lose Weight') and use them as strength training programs in the gym. Another bonus of the video is that I can watch Hells Kitchen and listen to Gordon Ramsey shout MOVE YER ARSE, and I take it literally! :-D Like one of the others said, if I'm going to the gym and I don't have my iPod, I have to turn around and get it - my workout is much more intense and effective when the music is pumping in my ears!

I wish those bodybuggs weren't so expensive because I think they would be awesome. I keep watching though and hoping the prices go down. For now I'll stick with my iPod and heart rate monitor.

I love my heart rate monitor to help me see how many calories I've burned and to keep me at the perfect heart rate, but I could NOT work out without my iPod, so I'll have to say that!

if i forget my ipod when i'm going to the gym, i might as well turn around to go get it - because i know my workout will not be half as awesome as it would be with music.

Nothing gets me running like new songs on my i-pod. I have the Nike+ but haven't done a lot of outdoor running.. it's cold :(

I'd say my nike+ but I've used the hr monitor way more and if I had to choose one, it'd be my hr monitor.

If people aren't choosing the gps it's because they've obviously never tried it - believe me - it revolutionizes how you run. Ask for it for Christmas

i remember havingto take a bulky CD player to the gym and it was NO FUN working out - and the worst is when you want to go running..you would have to strap a walkman to your arm to run w/ music!

I would say HR monitor or my watch, but my music motivates me to get out there everytime!
