My favorite fitness purchase has been the 2 lb Bala Bangles. When I first began weight training, they were an easy way to add some extra weight to simple exercises and they fit perfectly in my gym bag. Even now, as I have advanced to heavier weights, I still wear them during my daily walks around my neighborhood to add a bit of intensity.
