  1. Hmmmm 1. More weights! And a squat rack. And an olympic bar. And well, gee a whole gym magically in my basement! (Oh, and a minor thing- higher ceilings in the basement, stupid 100+ yr. old house....)
    2. Heart rate monitor- I think I am getting one for my bday! :)

  2. Answers 1. Pool. I think it would make the summer a bit more bearable.
    2. New workout clothes. I am starting to get sick of the dumpy Tshirts and shorts. They do not emphasize my newfound "hotness".

  3. you could change your handle to "the hotness"
    ...
    ...

    :)

  4. heh heh

  5. hmmm... Id probably just get a really nice treadmill, or some heavy bags.
    100 dollars to buy whatever I need? I seriously need some new tennisshoes, and new handwraps. And a gym bag. lol Im in need of a few things right now.

  6. 1. Elliptical trainer. Good one. Like the ones at the gym. I can't trust myself to do weights at home, but cardio I can.
    2. Sneakers, sports bra, and new sweatpants. This, by the way, is what I'm going out to do on saturday. Present to myself for getting through the term from HELL.

  7. :) i love a good poll.
    for 1, if a self-cleaning pool with side hot tub is not an option, i would choose an elliptical with an attached tv/dvd player/laptop shelf. that way i could run if it were raining, and my goofing off time could keep me on my feet instead slumped in a chair or on the couch.
    for 2, i would buy new weight lifting gloves, bc mine are raggedy. i would also buy 2 25 lb. dumbbells, bc i'm outgrowing the 20 lb ones i have at home.
    the rest would go for what i bought this weekend - road id tags for me and my husband, and flasher lights to wear in the dark. i can't believe that it is dark at 6:30 in the morning again. the summer flew by.

  8. poll step mill oh yeah
    lululemon pants

  9. dang i'm changing my 2.
    i've been lusting after a completely ridiculous bag for weeks now. i would apply my 100 to the lululemon elite gym bag instead.

  10. they have some NICE things!

  11. I lust after this gym bag. I feel so silly in a suit carrying a three-dollar nylon bag full of sneakers...

    or this one, which even has a laptop pocket!

  12. the laptop thing is how i sucked into it ... laptop plus shoe tunnel or pocket = happiness.
    here's a pic of the elite:

  13. Pretty! I really think...that the nice-gym-bag is closer to the necessity side of the scale than the indulgence side. Especially if you're in a professionall-y office.
    Which is not to say I don't love my three dollar gym bag. Nothing says "don't steal me! there's nothing of value here" like a three-dollar bag...
    but...I mean, imagine that nice bag under a desk! Sittin' there, waitin' to go to the gym, lookin' so terribly legitimate, so grown-up, yet keeping sneakers at the ready!

  14. you first :) i need a girl bag in looks with a boy bag shoe capacity - hard to find.
    my gym bag is a freebie zip-up tote bag my mother gave me 4 years ago with a textbook manufacturer's name printed on the side. i'm very sure that my boss thinks it is one of the more atrocious accessories she's ever seen.

  15. 1. rowing machine I thought about buying one before but was told that the noise level could be pretty annoying to the people that live below me. So I assume that if it can magically fit in my apartment, it would magically not annoy the people below me too???
    2. Probably just some PT sessions.

  16. lately i have really been thinking about buying a rowing machine. thankfully no one is below me. hmm.

  17. doooo it!

  18. after just 1 year on crew, i cant stand rowing! I do it anyway, but hate it every second of the way!
    negative nancy and i will go away now :)

  19. Hmmm 1. I would buy a sailboat! I love sailing and it's a GREAT "piece" of workout equipment!
    2. The $100 would go towards a George Foreman grill. I still can't believe I haven't bought one... Shame on me!

  20. good poll I would get an elliptical machine that would magically never break or need maintenance!
    And for my 100 dollars, I would buy 100 dollars worth of socks because I go through so many. I like Nike brand ones because they seem to last longer for me and are a bit more durable (so my machine doesn't eat them up).

  21. Mine 1. I'd go with the aquacisor. I don't know if this would actually work for running, but I like the idea of it. And that you could row in it. And that it's a freaking hot tub.

    2. Part of me wants to say a heart rate monitor because that seems like a healthy, respectable purchase, but in reality I'd go with more/new gym clothes. I just love getting new workout stuff. It always motivates me to go more often. And the more I have, the less likely I'll be able to use the excuse of not having anything clean so that I can't go to the gym.

  22. 1. a complete weight machine set.. i mean, COMPLETE.. it would have bench presses, pull down bar, tricep extension bars, etc. etc. Does that count as one equipment? if not, i'll take a treadmill.
    2. for hundred bucks.. a medicine ball, kettle ball, stepper.

  23. its hard i do like going to the gym.
    a good treadmill
    a personal chef

  24. 1) a big screen TV powered by an elliptical machine.
    2) stability ball and foam roller.

  25. #1 = LOL!!!

  26. ++++++++ a trillion!

  27. 1) Horse. 2) Tack.

  28. 1. a lap pool would be nice Though, there's one at my gym a few blocks away, and the Lake is at front of my door. . .
    2. A few new lulu tops. 75% of mine are too big on me :-/

  29. 1. elliptical machine; 2) new gym bag or maybe a backup pair of NB shoes.

  30. 1.) a tri-bike my hybrid is just not cutting it for me. I have a need for speed!
    2.) New running shoes. Because I need them. Hopefully I could find them on sale for just under $100.

  31. right...a tri-bike + power tap trainer stand for indoor/winter riding and interval/power training too!
    price tag min $4000...max...$10,000???

  32. answers 1. A treadmill.
    2. Some new workout clothes and a food scale.

  33. my answers 1) elliptical
    2) - well you didn't say if what i got for the $100 magically fit in my apt. too. In NYC even a few new sports bras can cause space problems. Also, I admit if it were under $100 and I really wanted it I probably have it. Maybe a food scale but not sure I really want one. Maybe some small weights. A second pair of sneakers to have at the ready....

  34. Mine 1) a complete weight set up to a pair of 55 pound dumbbells with the rack.
    2) a new flat bench or used(or a good bargin) adjustible bench.
    A very close third would be impact floor mats.
    I'm good with finding cardio workouts. I'd love to do weight workouts at home.
