Cool Fitness Gadgets

The wonderful thing about living in this current age of technology is that it spreads into the fitness world. If there is something that makes your workout more enjoyable, interactive, comfortable, or effective, than it’s worth buying if it will keep you committed to your goals. But with all the stuff that’s out there, what are some cool fitness gadgets? What is really worth spending the bucks on?

Some of the cool fitness gadgets are the simplest ones. For getting out and taking a vigorous walk or a jog, having comfortable footwear that takes the shock from “hitting the road” is always a good idea. Today’s fitness shoes are designed for both comfort and function. These are better if tried on at the store, mostly because there is a shoe for every foot. The store personnel can help you there. If you want to price shop, once you decide on the shoe for you, check the Internet for comparison pricing.

I like the Mizuno Wave Creation shoe. I have used them for ten years. The have always been the ideal fit for my foot, and they relieve the shock for my back and kness. Hilga on the other hand loves New Balance shoes. They work well for her. So head to the store and try on some shoes and see what feels good. Really good stores will even have a treadmill for the “real test.”

Another useful gadget is a heart rate monitor. These are easy to use and help you to keep your heart in the target zone based on your fitness level. I like polar monitors and have used them for years. They can be as simple as just showing heart rate to giving all sorts of feedback on each workout you perform. It just depends on how much you want to spend. Whatever you chose, they will help you to make your workout as effective as can be, for the time you spend in your cardio workout.

As far as workout clothing, Adidas has some of the most functional. Their clothing wicks perspiration away from your body during your workouts making you much more comfortable. Depending on what season you are outside, you can be cool in the summer or warm in the winter.

When it comes to cool fitness gadgets for indoor strength training, there are several easy and affordable choices that will be easy to use and store. I love Fitballs! They are a heavy rubber ball that you inflate once purchased. They come in different sizes depending on a persons height. They are used for stretching, improving core strength, balance, and even a chair at your desk if you want to take the workout to the office. No home should be without one. You’ll have a hard time keeping it away from pets - they love them too!

Another good strength training device that is light weight, yet packed with resistance, are exercise bands. They look like surgical bands and come in different colors and thicknesses. The thicker the band the greater the resistance. These things are great because you can use them anywhere, travel with them, and they disappear into a drawer, or hang in a closet when you are done with them.

And one final item in the list of cool fitness gadgets is a body fat scale. The scale measures both your weight and your body fat percentage. They are not as accurate as some other more expensive methods because they are measuring only your lower body, however, they are great at giving you an idea of your progress as you continue with your fitness regimen. They are very programmable and are a great motivator if used properly.

Of course with all the music devices out there, keeping pumped during any workout is even easier than ever! With phones now storing large music files, you hardly need Ipods any more. But they are still an option if you only have a more basic phone.

So, these are just a few of the cool fitness gadgets out there that make your fitness goals easier to attain. Your fitness equipment does not have to cost a lot to help you achieve great results! Franz wishes you great health and fitness in the New Year!
