New Equipment Increases Engagement -- Let's Try the ViPR and Ugi

I'm always looking for new "toys" to add to our exercise room. People respond well to trying something new -- it helps to keep our regular exercisers engaged and occasionally attracts someone to one of our classes. Two fun new additions to our equipment selection -- a ViPR and an Ugi.

And, here's an introduction to the Ugi. You can sit, kneel and balance on an Ugi, making it the perfect medicine ball/stability ball hybrid for exercises such as planks (forearms balanced on the ball) or ab crunches (while lying on your back on top of it).
