We've added a list of Valerie's favorite fitness products and gear to help you get the most out of your workouts. Valerie uses these products personally and has recommended them to her clients to get results.
Lifeline Lateral Resister II
I love bands especially for the lower body. I highly recommend that you train your hip rotators (aka inner and outer thighs) on a regular basis. Strong adductor and abductor muscles keep your hips steady and help support your overall hip strength. The beauty of this band is that it helps firm your tush and you work your core (aka ab) muscles when performing band exercises. There are different band strengths to make sure your butt is working (pun intended). You don't have to do lots of reps to feel the burn! Get your Lifeline Lateral Resister II now!
Gymboss Interval Trainer
Gymboss is the answer to adding intensity to your workout. Instead of constantly glancing at a clock or your watch during your training sessions, a buzz or vibration will let you know when to rest or begin the next exercise. You can set specific time intervals to complete your exercises - whether you're strength training, jogging, or running sprints. It's almost like having a Fitwell trainer there with you!

TRX Suspension Trainer
TRX is the gym you can carry with you. You can use it anywhere - at home, in a hotel room, even outside at the park. With TRX, there are no excuses. You don't need additional weights or resistance. Your body is your machine. Using the unique TRX anchoring system, you can take advantage of the vector, pendulum and stability principles to work your entire body at any angle. If you are an exercise novice or elite athlete, TRX will help you add variety to your workout and help you get the results you've always wanted. We recommend the TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor system to get started.
Buddy Lee Jump Rope
This is my secret weapon for building endurance, improving coordination, and getting a kick-butt workout! I came across the Buddy Lee Jump Rope system while using my TRX (see above). Buddy Lee partnered with Fitness Anywhere to develop a circuit program that includes jumping rope. I jump rope between 2-4 times per week. I travel with it so there's no excuse to miss a cardio workout. Get yours today!
