SurfShelf, Bodylastics Fitness Tubes, Supercook.com -- Reviews
The Why: It's cool to be able to use your computer (watch online videos, check e-mails) while you're on the treadmill or elliptical trainer. This special shelf holds laptops up to 15 inches wide and weighing up to 15 pounds right on your treadmill.
The Health Bonus: You'll exercise longer and harder because you'll be entertained.
What We Liked Best: It's sturdy, inexpensive, and fits most machines.
What We Liked Least: If you're engrossed, you could fall off the exercise machine. Plus, if you're too distracted, you might not exercise hard enough.
What It Replaces: Newspapers, magazines, and TV programs you don't want to watch.
The Price: $59.95.
Other Offerings: SurfShelf has a new video and entertainment Web site (www.in-gym.com) designed specifically for the online exerciser.
