Fuji Absolute 3.0 ($480)
Lightweight with easy handling and shifting, this is the perfect hybrid fitness bike at a great price. The Fuji is also extra stable at higher downhill speeds (but wear a helmet anyway).
Runner-up: For about half the price the Schwinn Midmoor ($250) handles well and has good shock absorption for all those little bumps on the road to getting fit.
PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR ($2,200)
Whether you're a walker or a runner, this is one terrific treadmill: Easy to set up, it has a built-in heart-rate monitor and adjusts to a wide range of speeds. It's also superquiet and has not one but two cup holders plus a reading shelf.
Runner-up: For those who have tighter spaces (and budgets), the $1,000 Sole F63 folds for easy storage and accommodates a variety of fitness levels.
