The hottest fitness products of 2012

When it comes to fitness gear, we've found the smallest, the heaviest, the toughest and the stickiest on the market.

Let's start at the bottom: The feet.

When it comes to playing basketball, Isaiah Cureton says the most difficult challenge is "losing your grip and slipping, so you can't cut like you want to."

So he gave Court Grip a try. It's a thin layer of sticky liquid that goes on the bottom of the shoes to give a little more stability. 

The Sport Count is another new gadget that wraps around your index finger and is operated by your thumb. It helps you keep track of the number of laps you've run, your total speed, your average lap speed and your fastest lap. And the best part? It's also waterproof, which makes it great for swimmers, too.

If you're looking to bulk up your muscles, a Kettle Bell can come in handy. You can add or remove weights as your gain strength.

For a real burn, the Burn Machine helps you mimic the motion of a boxer as if he's getting ready for a fight.

Thousands of products come to the market every year, but the hottest ones are the ones that help you achieve the most, for less.
