As a runner, I make sure I have the “best” gear for me.  I like my Brooks shoes, Oiselle clothes, Smartwool socks, and Garmin watch.  I don’t think I need anything else.  I am horrible when it comes to stretching and I rarely use my foam roller.  Hopefully that will change soon since many of you have commented how much better you feel when you use it.  I have a couple of them and honestly I don’t need that many.  Or do I?  I forgot to mention that I also have an R8 Roll Recovery (older version) but that thing HURTS!!!

However, there are a few other things that I would like to try or buy.

• A Peloton bike.  It will be one of the first things I buy when I move to a house.  I love reading about Kim and Deborah’s fun classes in their bike.


PowerDot Electrical Muscle StimulatorIt provides therapy for tired muscles and aching joints no matter where you go.  This little gadget helps you:

     • Recover faster
     • Massage out knots 
     • Avoid training fatigue
     • Relieve muscle and joint soreness
     • Increase muscle strength and endurance
     • Increase blood circulation
     • Warm up muscles to prevent injury
     • Feel your best    


• High Intensity Vibrating Fitness RollerOK so I just wrote that I rarely use my foam roller, but this one looks so cool!  I remember a few months ago someone told me about a heated foam roller.

• Compression boots.  I have used them at expos and they are truly amazing!  I think one time I almost fell asleep.

• Whole Body CryotherapyWhy not?  I read that the benefits of it outweigh those of a traditional ice bath.  Should I believe everything I read online?  🙂

29 Comments on Tuesday Topics: Some new fitness gadgets I’d like to try

  1. I think a Peloton would be great but I don’t think I’d use it enough to justify the expense! I don’t think there are any gadgets I want but I’d love to be able to pay to workout with my coach more often!

  2. I would love to try a Peleton..I’ve heard so many cool things about them.

    What else?

    -a personal trainer
    – a new Garmin

    Both of the above are too $$

  3. Cryotherapy! I did that once. Not sure it helped any but it was interesting to try at least! My favorite new gadget are the Trekz Air headphones!

  4. The Peloton stuff intrigues me, but I’m such an outdoor gal I doubt I’d get much use out of any it. I’d like my own personal massage therapist, on a weekly basis 😉

  5. We seem to be on the same page. I don’t use my foam roller much but still think that vibrating one sounds pretty cool. Peloton bike also looks great but I can’t justify the expense when I live in Southern California and can ride outside almost year round.

  6. Oh, I am with you on the Peloton! Everyone who has one seems to love it. They are just so expensive, though! I would have trouble justifying the cost.

  7. I would love to get my hands on a Peloton. I love spin and it would be so convenient to be able to spin at home.

    Cryotherapy would be a hard pass for me. I have Raynaud’s and do’t think my extremities would be able to handle it.

    I would love to try out a Garmin Fenix.

  8. Yes to the Peleton it would be awesome to have one! A heated foam roller sounds very interesting…I used an R8 roller and it was amazing, but I never shelled the cash for my own!

  9. I think the Peleton bikes are so cool, but I do love my Cyclebar classes and think I work harder in a studio environment. The foam roller sounds interesting!

Thank you for your comment!
