"I know these are funny looking, but I tried on a pair and after I got the hang of 'running' in them, I fell in love. The rebounding was fun and challenging but also easy on my joints."
"This is a very innovative, cost effective and space efficient way to turn any dumbbell into a kettlebell without having to buy (and store) a full set of kettlebells."

"Finally, a stylish running coat! And these boots are the perfect choice for my winter walks and hikes. Plus, they're cute enough to throw on après-ski when I go home to Canada for the holidays."
"Most equipment for cardiovascular training is based on lower extremity movements. The Surge 360 works the upper body by incorporating pulling and pushing motions against omnikinetic resistance--hydraulic cylinders that adapt to the strength of the user. It's great cardio exercise for a person who has lower-extremity issues or anyone who wants to change up their workout routine."
--Stefan Aschan, personal trainer, integrative movement specialist, and naturopath
"I'm an outdoor workout fanatic, but it's so hard for me to find ways to work out during the winter months in New Jersey. This year, I'm dying to get my hands on a good pair of women's snowshoes for hikes with my family. I found this adorable pair for women in a coral color."
--Rebekah "Bex" Borucki, fitness and yoga instructor and healthy living advocate at BexLife.com
"I am really into this new concept of heart rate monitors built into sports bras, and this one seems to be semi-affordable. Historically, most things athletic, and gear-oriented, have been created/built/developed/evolved with men in mind and lots of things for athletes and fitness people are less than female-friendly. This sports bra--while being cool in and of itself as a product--is a bigger sign of the changing times."
--Leanne Shear, co-founder of Uplift, a New York City-based women-only fitness and social movement
"I travel on a weekly basis to rainy cities like Madison, Wisconsin, so I need luggage that can handle the weather and protect my personal property. This Under Armour bag from the company's Storm Collection is water resistant."
--Keoni Hudoba, creator of DRENCHED and creative director of the CYC Method
"The acuball is like a foam roller for hard-to-hit trouble spots like the piriformis, a muscle that lies under your big butt muscles, as well as the gluteus medius. It's cheap and would be great to travel with."
--Craig Craig Ballantyne, certified Turbulence trainer

"I've been using rebounders for years, and the Bellicon is absolutely perfect. The tension across the mat is excellent--no rolling ankles if you are barefoot--and it's SILENT--great for apartment living! The different dimensions are also a plus for people who feel safer bouncing on a wider surface."
"This resistance cord and bar combination can be used for a fun, dynamic strength-training routine that challenges your control, power, mobility, balance, and coordination. And it's completely portable--you can use it anywhere you have a secure anchor point and a bit of room."
--Ken Szekretar, New York City-based personal trainer and triathlon coach
"It's hard to find a good pair of workout pants with zipper pockets! Whether you're a trainer or the trainee, having a comfortable pair of training pants where you can hold keys or money without worrying about them falling out, is a huge plus."

"I love to hike and run outdoors, and as the months grow colder and the hours of daylight dwindle, having the right fitness gear to safely exercise outdoors in these cooler temperatures is of the utmost importance to me. (Search: Most Scenic Hikes) I love apparel from prAna (it's always high quality and flattering), and this new item is made of quick drying material that is perfect for foggy, dewy morning runs along the coast here in San Diego. Plus, I'm a huge fan of the functional thumbholes--they're just so comfortable!"
--Jessica Matthews, exercise physiologist at the American Council on Exercise
"This would be great for 'strong man' conditioning workouts you can do while scaring everyone in your neighborhood into thinking that you're completely nuts. Just load up the weight and push. So simple even a caveman can do it."
--Craig Ballantyne, certified Turbulence trainer
From $16/month; klutchclub.com
"This subscription service delivers you a box of different health and wellness products each month. It has so many different surprises--from seaweed in a cup to earbuds to eyeliner--and is a fun way to try out new things I normally wouldn't spend money on."
"You can reduce the low-back-injury worries of deadlifiting with this modified version of a trap bar. Plus, the fat bar works your grip strength harder than normal. Great to use in your garage or backyard, or out on the street to keep up your 'crazy old man' reputation."
--Craig Ballantyne, certified Turbulence trainer
"We all know that if you sit for most of the day, but then get your exercise in after work, you're still at increased risk for chronic disease compared to those that are more active during the workday. I wanted to do something about this so I researched treadmill desks online and found this one. It only goes up to 4 mph, but it doesn't need to go any faster (after all, it's a workstation). It's very easy to put together and tracks time, steps, calories, distance, speed, and weight. It takes some time for it to get up to speed, but that doesn't bother me."
--Brian Zehetner, personal trainer and chief science officer for Anytime Fitness
