Apple Nike iPod Sport Kit
NIKE + IPOD SPORT KIT: Listening to tunes while you workout is only the tip of the iceberg. Slip a sensor into your Nikes to track your time, distance, pace, and calories burned. Sync it up to your Mac to review performance history, set goals, and even challenge other runners to a virtual race. $29 at
LONG SLEEVE TOP: Stay warm and dry during your workout with the Hydrator Long Sleeve. It's got moisture wicking, reflective panels on the back and also provides UV protection. We also like the sporty yet girly stripes. $38 at
HANDFUL BRA: This one's for the little ladies. The Handful Bra, with its delicate straps and gathered detail, makes it not only a cute little thing, but also ideally suited to the fitness needs of your A-cupped girls. $40 at
SHAKOHA BOOT: "It's winter," you say, "I can't possibly get fit now!" Not so fast. Anna Sui's Shakoha Boot for FitFlop lets you stay all warm and snuggly while getting a little extra body boost. The special sole helps you get a workout while you walk through snow and slush. $195 at
ADIDAS VESPA BAG: Go to the gym in style with Adidas' retro Vespa bag. It says, "yes, I'm an international jetsetter" and the sporty vibe adds, "with a smokin' hot bod." $70 at
KLEAN KANTEEN: So long, Sigg. We're loving Klean Kanteen's BPA free (read: enviro-friendly) water bottles that come in a selection of colors. Choose the sport cap and stay hydrated at the gym or on the go. $16.45 at
BROOKS SNEAKERS: Brooks is the biggest name in sneakers that you've never heard. They don't have the brand cachet of, say, Nike, but they deserve to be noticed. Find the best fit for your feet with their handy online quiz. Prices vary, click for Shoe Advisor.
HEART RATE MONITOR WITH GPS: Track your heart rate so you can stay in your optimal zone while training. Plus get real-time data on speed, distance and pace with the Garmin Forerunner. $350 at
YOGA SOCKS: Not only can our tootsies get cold in the yoga studio, but the thought of going barefoot on the floor can be a little icky. Enter no-slip yoga socks. Cotton, machine washable and perfect for our flooring fears. $19.98 at
HIP HOP CROP: In case you haven't heard, Lululemon is the go-to spot for chic workout threads. We're loving their Hip Hop Crop pants which provide coverage with breathable fabric and pockets a-plenty. $88 at
AM & PM YOGA DVD: There are tons of amazing yoga studios out there, but what's more convenient than having one in your own home? Gaiam's DVD provides two great routines that are well suited for beginners and intermediates for practice in -- you guessed it -- the morning and evening. $15.98 (sale price) at
ADIDAS KIERRE BAG: If you're a traditionalist when it comes to gym bags, you don't have to sacrifice style. Stella McCartney's Kierre Bag packs all the punch of a gym bag, but doesn't have that uber gym-y feel. $120 at
ANKLE WEIGHTS: Amp up your workout simply by adding a few extra pounds. Just strap on Nike's ankle weights and boost your normal routine... or try them with some new moves. $35 at
JUST DO IT T-SHIRT: We all need t-shirts in our workout arsenal, so why not get one with built in Nike motivation? It's especially helpful on those damn days when you just want to sit on the damn couch. $30 at
NBC Universal, Inc.
THE BIGGEST LOSER GAME: You love Alison Sweeney, Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels from NBC's The Biggest Loser. But you've been sitting on the couch too long while the contestants sweat it out. Now it's your turn with The Biggest Loser Game. Available at multiple retailers.
DIET & FITNESS JOURNAL: Studies have shown that people who track what they eat have greater success at losing weight. The Diet & Fitness Journal also includes room to write down your workouts, motivational tips and assess your weekly goals. (Pen not included.) $11.99 at
GLOVES: These gloves are cool looking and safe with a built-in LED light. Conversion slots for thumb and forefinger make fiddling around a thing of the past. And the fact that they're called ViperLite will make you feel like a badass on the trails. A safe, nimble badass. $35 at
TENSION BANDS: Giant rubber bands provide a portable and effective workout. Use them anywhere at home or on the road. The resistance bands come in three levels of difficulty to keep you toned. $32 at
ACTIVE UNDERWEAR: You've got yourself covered from head to toe, but what about underneath? Patagonia's active Hipster Briefs are breathable, stretchy and won't ride up. $20 at
KALYX BRA: The newly minted Kalyx Bras are designed for specific activities from yoga to extreme sports so that your girls get the support they need for their workout goals. (Marathon bra pictured here.) $44 at
INSTANT ZEN JACKET: Sounds pretty good to us, but fabulous name aside, Quiksilver's winter workout coat provides moisture wicking and anti-microbial technology (as you'd expect). Plus lined pockets and hood cinching keep you warm during those chilly workouts. $90 at Quiksilver.
KETTLE BELL: These were one of the hot fitness crazes with good reason. The Kettle Bell is a specialized weight that lets you work multiple muscle groups with one fell swoop. Available in 10, 20 and 35 lbs. $30 and up at
THERMAL SKULLCAP: Of all the beanies out there, we heart Nike's skullcap for its superior ear coverage and ponytail opening in back. We like that they're looking out for us. $20 at
SMART WOOL SOCKS: Socks are boring, right? Let Smart Wool change your mind. The material will keep your feet warm without getting wet. Plus built in support and ventialltion make these puppies the best bet to keep your dogs from barking. $10 at
THE STRUCTURE HOUSE WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: The Structure House plan isn't about dropping 10 pounds fast by following a diet. It's about changing your relationship with food so that you can be healthy and in control of your eating... and ultimately your life. $12 at
LULULEMON PANTS: We called out the Hip Hop Crops as our faves, but we heart all of Lululemon's pants. Runners, yoga pants and winter shells are to drool over. $98 and up at
FIT ORBIT: No matter what your fitness goals -- weight loss, body building, endurance -- FitOrbit has you covered. Take a short quiz online and get matched with a trainer who caters to your needs. Then access your personal plan online or via cell to track your progress. $9.99/week at
BUBBLECOMB HOODIE: The North Face is more than just your go-to place for heavy winter sports gear. Their hoodie keeps the casual athlete in mind with hood, wicking and -- our favorite -- cuffs with monkey thumbs for keeping mittens and gloves in place. $55 at
YOGA TOES: When it comes to your well-being, no bit is too small... not even your little pinky toes. Take care of all your tootsies with Yoga Toes, a device that stretches out your toes for foot fitness and pain relief. $49.95 at
WII FIT: If you don't have a Wii yet, getting in shape is the perfect excuse to get one... provided you get it with Wii Fit Plus, of course. Get strength, balance and other training sessions, plus you can track your progress. Available at various retailers.
