The TRX is a great strength training tool and program you can use at home and some gyms offer classes with it, too. It looks like resistance bands but isn't stretchy; it allows you to strength-train using your own body weight in a variety of ways. It hooks to a door, tree or other secure pole.
It comes with DVDs, workout cards and great instructions. You can modify every exercise to fit your level, beginning or advanced, and all of the exercises work your core and really challenge your body in unique ways. You can work every major muscle group and adjust it easily. www.fitnessanywhere.com

I had goitten into a rut with exercise. I was bored and uninterested with my exercise and it was not doing as much as it was for me. I hired a trainer for 6 sessions to shake things up. She has shown me new ways to use equipment, new trends (TRX, kettle ball, etc) and encouraged me to change my
routine. She has cost me lose and gain...I have lost and toned but I have also gained more confidence and have some fancy new things to do that I enjoy that are keeping me healthy!
The MITT is a cell phone application that allows you to concentrate on your workouts instead of your watch. It is completely versatile allowing you to set any number of timed intervals you need. You set the delay time, work time, rest time, and number of rounds.
You can download a free trial version to try it before you buy it.
This works great for martial arts / boxing rounds, running, tabata, HIIT, etc.
This application works on most cell phones, but does not work on iPhone or iPods.
I have been using this for weight lifting, running, and TRX intervals. Works great.
