5 Best Fitness Investments for 2011

1 2 3 4 5

Let’s face it. There are very few people who enjoy working out. I know this because I am one of them. However, speaking from experience (I just ran my first ever half-marathon), I can say that exercising truly makes every aspect of your life better.

That said, here are my recommendations for great fitness products that make working out fun!

While other retail stores are still suffering from lagging sales, online fitness gear brand Athleta made headlines recently by opening its first ever bricks and mortar store in San Francisco. Yup, their clothes are just that good.

The secret? They make your booty look beautiful with special fabrics and cuts and are VERY flattering and firming; a must-have for any fitness queen. (Or someone who wants to look like one.) I recommend Athleta’s Chaturanga (pictured, $54.99 on SHOP.COM) or the Kurve pants.

    Doing activities instead of “working-out” makes it more fun! Ride a bike, take a dance class, go for a swim. Personally, it just to have another purpose then working out – relaxation, fun with friends, etc!

    Just started a gym membership I bought for a discount today. It has all sorts of fun classes to do. I’m so excited!

    That trek desk looks awesome, but I can see someone having serious buyers remorse in a matter of days.

    I love running.. I know it sounds boring, but I just love it.. I also love toning exercises and any workout that makes my body burn and sweat

    Love the trek desk. I stand the majority of the day, because sitting makes me slouch. This desk would definitely increase my exercise levels.

    I didn’t know about the Marisa Tormei video. That totally sounds like fun. I’m gonna check it out. She is fit. Did anyone see her in the movie “The Wrestler”. Great shape.

    I prefer to work out solo, but I make sure I load my ipod with fun songs with different paces so I can switch my work out up a little so I’m moving in sync with the beat of the music. I’m planning on investing in some EasyTone sneakers and some new cute work out clothes. I feel like I get a better workout when I like the way I look.

    Once I get in the gym, I can’t stop working out. I love working out in Yogas, these pants are way out of my price range, maybe someday!
