Motion X GPS Phone App

Runs in the background of what I am listening to on my iphone but tells me my speed, distance and time exercising at whatever interval I set. Keeps me on track and motivated.

Exercise with your dog

The alarm goes off at 4:30 and I might be temped to stay in bed instead of working out but there is my giant furry friend wagging and ready to go. He motivates me to get up and going and we both enjoy the work out.

Power Putty

I like the power putty mountain climbers use better than stress balls or those little balloon things that break. I keep it in my purse for any time I have to just sit. It feels nice in my hand, won't roll or break.
