Default What is your favorite exercise accessory? (video, equipment, apparel, etc)

What item have you purchased for exercise that you can't live without? It could be a treadmill, a certain video tape, some free weights, good shoes, or anything at all that you've bought.

You use it and love it and now we want you to recommend it

Without a doubt, it's my iPod. I can't do cardio without music. Period.

Close behind is the pad that I put on the barbell before I do squats and lunges. I'm such a wimp that the weighted bar kills my back otherwise. The one the gym has stinks, so I bought my own.

Love my new running shoes -- Mizunos Wave Rider 7. Never heard of them before but they were recommended at the store and fit my feet very well.

My favorite accessories are my running shoes. I hesitate to recommend any specific shoe, but instead recommend going to an athletic shoe store and getting properly fitted. I tried a million different brands trying to find comfortable shoes, but it wasn't until someone looked at how my feet hit the ground and talked to me about what I wanted to use the shoes for that I found the right pair.

Everything Katia said about running shoes.
The average person is overweight. Striving to be LESS THAN Average.

Default Lifelift

The exercise that has gotten me started down this road to wellness is my Lifelift Aerobic Breathing tapes. I will never be without!

My prospirit workout pants! They don't ride up when I walk or jog like most shorts, yet they are light weight. And, I find them more comfortable than lycra and they don't make me feel self conscious (like lycra and sometimes shorts do). They are also less bulky than standard sweat pants. (They are made out of polyester - but I've never had any chafing problems.)

I own three pairs!

I have three, although here lately they haven't gotten much use. I am changing that though. They are, my treadmill, exercise bike and my WATP video. I absolutely LOVE all three and couldn't/wouldn't live without them.

My Roller Skates
My Bowling Ball

My Gardening Tools & Gadgets

Last but not least...

My Thrift Store work-out clothing finds. You'd be amazed at how many brand-new-with-tags work out clothes people discard.

Neat thread.

I really enjoy my exercise bike. It's a daily thing for me. I can watch tv, or call someone while I'm biking, or read. Tv is better as I can work harder.
I like my WATP videos, but the woman drives me crazy
This web site, would have given up long ago if I didn't come here daily. These friends keep me accountable.
