Everyone is looking for the next cool gadget or fitness tool to buy to boost their workouts. Sure, you can click on a banner ad or buy some “As Seen on TV” fad if you want to waste your time and money, but the REAL way to find out if something works or not is to ask the pros! As you may know, between my fellow Fitness Advisors for Sears FitStudio.com and fellow Fitness Ambassadors with FitFluential, I rub shoulders with some very cool fitness leaders across the nation. So I decided to ask some of my fit friends what their favorite fitness gadgets were and share their favs with you! Here are 25 fun fitness twitterific replies!

I find it increases the difficulty of my exercises & makes me work much harder than without it. Using it in plank, mountain climbers etc is killer. I really feel it in my abs.
If I have to pick one I’d say my Garmin 405cx.
Fav feature: tracks mileage so I don’t have to follow a specific path.

Many people blame a lack of cash for not being fit, but getting fit doesn’t necessarily require a lot of money. Sure, it’s much nicer to workout inside an air-conditioned gym, more comfortable to use nice gym quality equipment, and more fun to burn calories in a class with friends – but you don’t have to join a gym to get fit.
This past fall, my husband and I were in Wellington, Florida leading a boot camp at Ultima Fitness. Steve, known for using creative fitness tools, shared his fall spirit by leading participants through a workout with pumpkins instead of medicine balls. At first, everyone giggled at the idea of doing squat trusts with pumpkins but, once their muscles started burning, Steve was the one who got the last laugh.
Fitness tools can be very expensive when setting up a home gym. One Kettlebell or a Medicine Ball alone can be $70 each and free weights typically run a dollar a pound, which adds up fast. Even used equipment can be insanely over-priced in my opinion. Read the rest of this entry
