It doesn't take much to work out at home — mostly the determination to use a few pieces of equipment. GoFit's stability ball has a handy workout printed around the ball, and the exercises can help improve balance and strength. A timer is useful; the Ultrak T-3 has a number keypad and counts up and down. And to build muscles, try the very portable resistance tubes, so you can stick to your routine even on trips. BodyFit makes a set in various levels. Ball, $29.99, http://www.gofit.net and at Target and sporting goods stores. Timer, $19.95, http://www.cei-ultrak.com and at sports websites. Resistance tubes, $12.99, at Sports Authority stores or http://www.sportsauthority.com.
