Get High-Tech While Working Out
CBS News explores the latest exercise gadgets.

CBS News recently compiled a list of “10 high-tech fat burners for fitness geeks,” which includes everything from vibrating weights to stationary bikes with entertainment systems. These products make working out fun and challenging, offering a new twist for those tired of the same old routine. Here are some highlights from the list:
  • TrekDesk Treadmill Desk: This isn’t your average treadmill accessory. The desk consists of a 72-inch by 34-inch surface, slots for phones, pens and coffee cups, and even a file tray. Treadmills are not included, but the desks easily fit around any standard-size machine. For about $500, you can get work done while shedding pounds – it’s the perfect gift for the ultimate multi-tasker.
  • TurboSonic Whole Body Vibration: Attractive to those who dislike traditional exercise methods, the TurboSonic Whole Body Vibration collection features different styles of vibrating platforms that you stand on for a minimum of 10 minutes. The makers of these futuristic machines say the devices enhance users’ strength, endurance and flexibility while increasing blood circulation and activating the lymph system. If this sounds intriguing to you, and you have $7,500 to $16,000 to spend, check it out.
  • ErgoBike Premium 8i: Daum Electronic, in Germany, promises to please with this combination stationary bike/entertainment system. The bike is outfitted with speakers, a microphone, camera and Internet connection. Users can race against each other and communicate over the headsets. You’ll be so distracted by all the bells and whistles on the ErgoBike, perhaps you won’t even realize that you’re exercising.
  • BodyVib Vibrating Dumbbells: Sold by British company Pro-Idee, these lightweight dumbbells vibrate at 36 cycles per second – more than 2,000 vibrations a minute. The result? Supposedly an increased training intensity up to 50 percent. The BodyVib Vibrating Dumbbells sell for about $1,100
Other featured gadgets include a rope less, electronic jump rope and a wireless dance system. With so many advanced, user-friendly exercise devices on the market today, it’s getting harder and harder to think up excuses for skipping your daily workout. Fortunately, the right equipment can make exercising a relatively painless experience. Check out the other gadgets to make the list at www.cbsnews.com/2300-204_162-10008902.html?tag=page.
