Happy New Year! No, we're not in a time machine: We're just checking on those New Year's Resolutions you made to get fit and stay fit. And like any good coach, we're here to keep you on track. These sports and fitness deals include a NordicTrack Elliptical Trainer to get your heart rate up, a heart rate monitor to make sure you're in the target zone, and a yoga mat to stretch out on afterwards.

  1. NordicTrack E5.5 Elliptical Trainer
    Store: Sears
    Price: $479.88 with in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $324

    Is It Worth It?: To borrow from Olivia Newton-John, let's get elliptical! This machine features 20 resistance levels, MP3 player compatibility, adjustable stride, a 300-lb. weight capacity, 5" backlit-display, and heart rate monitor. There's a lifetime warranty on the frame, with a 1-year parts and labor warranty. What's more, you'll earn 4,799 Shop Your Way Rewards Points, which convert to a $4.80 credit you can use on a future purchase.

    These extra SYWR points are a part of a larger Sears sale where customers can save up to 47% off a selection of five fitness and exercise equipment items. (Discounted prices are as marked.)

  2. Bowflex EZ Pro Heart Rate Monitor Watch
    Store: 1SaleADay via eBay
    Price: $14.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $105

    Is It Worth It?: Ah, what a timely Editors' Choice, and in seven colors, no less: Black (pictured), Blue, Khaki, Pink, Purple, Red, Teal, White, or Yellow. This gadget will help you maximize the efficacy of your workouts by helping you keep your heart rate in an optimal zone. It also features a stopwatch, alarm, calendar, and water resistance to 100 feet, along with a large LCD display.

  3. Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale
    Store: Moderna Housewares LLC via Amazon
    Price: $14.47 at checkout with free shipping via Prime
    Lowest By: $15

    Is It Worth It?: Here's a neat trick for watching the numbers on the scale plummet: The price is $28.95, but it drops to $14.47 during checkout. An Editors' Choice, this scale features microban antimicrobial product protection, a large blue backlit LCD, step-on activation technology, and a low battery indicator. It also turns off automatically to conserve battery power, and runs on 2 AAA batteries (included). However, it won't automatically drop your weight no matter how much you plead with it. We're still searching for one of those.

  4. 68" Yoga Mat
    Store: Yes4All Inc. via eBay
    Price: $10.75 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $4

    Is It Worth It?: Assume the baddha konasana and get your yoga pose on with this mat. Available in Blue, this mat is 6mm thick (not the common 4mm) and comes with double-sided non-slip embossing to help ensure secure placement on the floor.

  5. Electronic Pulse Massager
    Store: DeluxeDeals via Amazon
    Price: $23.99 with free shipping via Prime

This massager is a mere $24 and features four pads, an acupuncture pen, adjustable pulse rate, two batteries, and massage cream. This unit delivers massage and non-invasive acupuncture by low frequency waves from self-adhesive skin electrodes.
