Nine Gadgets That Can Supercharge Your Workouts

We took a look at this year’s hottest fitness gadgets and gizmos to see which ones are worth the workout. Here are our top 9 fitness picks that can help you shape up in record time—with just the push of a button! By Myatt Murphy, author of the Ultimate Dumbbell Guide

The Kinect for Xbox 360

3. The Kinect for Xbox 360 ($150 for sensor or $300 for Xbox 360 4GB Console/Kinect Bundle; www.xbox.com)

Why we like it: If you’re looking to lose weight, most people stick with the same handful of tried-and-true methods such as walking, running, cycling, or exercise classes. Finally, there are plenty of new fun fitness games you can try with an Xbox 360 that are terrific for burning calories—such as Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, Dance Central, The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout and EA SPORTS Active 2—but you need a Kinect to try any of them. This sensor sits on top of your entertainment center and tracks your body movements, so you don’t need to hold a controller (which can slip from your hands, or just be uncomfortable as you work out) or have to worry about pushing any buttons to get moving.
