Fitness Goes High-Tech With These Gadgets

“Sure, you could buy a top-of-the-line treadmill. Or one of those cool fitness apps that shows you how to do exercises. Or clothing that molds you in all the right places so you at least appear to be no stranger to exercise as you stumble about looking for the gym lockers. But for tried-and-true effectiveness, we asked local trainers (Pete McCall, San Diego-based trainer and exercise physiologist with the American Council on Exercise; Gina Lombardi, Los Angeles-based personal trainer with the National Strength and Conditioning Assn.; and Ramona Braganza, Los Angeles-based personal trainer and member of the Gold's Gym Fitness Institute) what they would recommend. Their top picks? Heart rate monitors, pedometers, and vibration plates.”
