From the Thighmaster to the stripper pole, women have tried everything to lose weight. We’ve been tempted by The Belly Burner, confused by the Shake Weight, and at our darkest moments we’ve even been intrigued by the Hawaii Chair (fit while you sit!). But before you blindly attempt another foolish fitness thingamajig, we’ve listed our five favorite gizmos to spice up your exercise routine (warlock workout kit not included)!
Nike+SportWatch GPS: The ultimate accessory for runners. This little watch tracks every aspect of your run while also allowing you to interact with other runners online and share your favorite routes.
Cool Board: A fitness craze from across the pond, this simulates the kind of workout only snowboarders, surfers, and skateboarders can get…plus more. Can you use your snowboard in a plank position? We didn’t think so.
Ugi Ball: Who doesn’t love one-minute moves? With this compact kit, you can design your own workouts by mixing and matching from 150 Ugi exercises — all from the comfort of your own home or office!
BodyMedia Fit: Lose up to three times more weight with this wearable body monitoring system. Not only does it track the intensity of your workouts, your total steps, calories burned, and calories consumed, but it also produces weekly summaries of your progress. Best of all, this digital nutritionist syncs wirelessly to your iPhone or Android! Get 15% off your entire purchase through Aug. 15, 2011 with the code FABFITFUN15.
Kangoo Jumps: Forget running shoes; Kangoo Jumps are the new aerobic sneaker! Revered as a stress relief for your joints, this low-impact gadget makes all workouts safe, easy, and fun. The Kardashians love it!
