Fitness On the Cheap
A few inexpensive tools to help you get into shape.





Perfect Pushup
BodyRev Products
www.perfectpushup.com

If your idea of fitness is a drill sergeant’s shouted command of "Drop-and give me 20!" the Perfect Pushup is the fitness tool for you. It’s comprised of two heavy-duty grips, which allow you to rotate your muscles during a typical pushup. The resulting exercise is less stressful on joints—and the rotation mimics the natural movement of your arm during a punch. Designed to make each pushup more efficient, the rubber-bottomed seven-and-a-half-inch bases provide a stable foundation for your body weight. Get your body in military-style shape—in and out of your fatigues.

Talking Safety Pedometer
Sportline
www.sportline.com

Feel a little bit safer jogging around your hood with this Talking Pedometer from Sportline. Equipped with a personal alarm that's activated by a quick-pull panic pin, it emits a loud pulse signal if you need help. A little peace of mind added to your training, this talking workout buddy also announces your calories burned along with your steps, distance and time. It even has a talking alarm clock—when you want to have audio-confirmation that you’ve completed another workout.

Soundwalk Mp3 Player Vest
Wowzzers.com
www.wowzzers.com

Tired of those tangled earphone wires? Listen to your hot workout music directly from the Soundwalk Mp3 Player Vest. Amplified speakers are nestled into the shoulders of the vest, allowing for a surround sound experience. It also carries both your Mp3 player and cell phone, and with one-touch allows you to easily toggle between the two. Complete with a highly-reflective line to increase outdoor safety and visibility, we’re sure you’ll already be noticed in the Zet Black or Heart Red vest anyway.
$69.99

HealthyJump
Tanita
www.tanita.com

Every triumphant sports movie contains at least one montage where the athlete trains on the classic jump rope (could this veiled Rocky reference be any thinner?). If you need a montage in your own backyard, check out the HealthyJump. A basic 10-foot jump rope, the translucent blue handles measure not only the number of jumps but the calories you’re burning. Make sure you do all those fancy jump rope moves to really complete the look.
$19.99

Ironman Triathlon Heart Rate Monitor
Timex
www.timex.com

Every fitness guru tells you that monitoring your heart rate is the key to getting the most out of your workout. Stylishly accomplish that with this Timex watch: it measures not only your target heart rate, but computes your average heart rate over time as well as calories burned. Five training zones are automatically set in this timepiece—which is also water-resistant. An Indiglo night-light and a resin-strap complete the look.
