The instructors at T3 Fitness and Training employ a variety of tools to help melt the pounds off of their clients. During hour-long boot-camp and boxing-for-fitness classes, students jump rope, push around oversized tires, lift barbells, and punch bags while wearing boxing gloves or bowling balls on their hands. The instructors also give clients one-on-one attention during personal-training sessions and take time to teach children about the importance of proper fitness and health.
The slick wooden rink at Skate America offers groups a good, old-fashioned roller-skating experience. Public skate nights welcome the masses, while private events such as birthday parties and seminars let guests reserve space, snacks, and arcade game tokens. Other entertainment options include a bounce area for kids under 48 inches. After a few turns about the rink, skaters can relax with a menu of grub that includes pizza, pretzels, and cotton candy.

Snap Fitness's easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer's personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm. Watch a video about the easyFit here.
