The U.S. government and IRS have announced that the economic stimulus checks from the tax rebates are in the mail and the consumers should start seeing the 2008 economic stimulus checks coming this week. Spending these tax rebates on your health and fitness will not only improve your personal health but also the U.S. Economy.

While some people will use the 2008 IRS stimulus checks making house and other bill payments, we say if you can buy yourself a fitness equipment, a health gadget that can stimulate your health, or something like Wii Fit.

Consider these Valeo HW5 5-Pound Neoprene Hand Weights that are sold in Amazon for 14.99
Neoprene coating provides a comfortable non-slip grip. Helps improve muscle tone and core strength. Enhances all aerobic exercise and fitness training. Available in 2, 3, 5, 8 and 10 lb. weights. Includes exercise wall chart. Sold in pairs


We found this Sunny Health & Fitness Manual Treadmill which is only 229 dollars, however, we would like to let you know that we don't know much about the quality of this treadmill since we have not tested it.

However, our favorite way to spend your 2008 stimulus checks is to buy a Wii Fit video game.

Many people like video games. While they used to be a way to make people obese, Wii Fit is a new approach to video games that aims to make people to do fitness and workout while enjoying a recreational game.

Wii says "The active-play phenomenon started by Wii Sports now spreads to your whole body thanks to the pressure-sensitive Wii Balance Board (name not final), which comes packed with Wii Fit. The board is used for an extensive array of fun and dynamic activities, including aerobics, yoga, muscle stretches and games. Many of these activities focus towards providing a "core" workout, a popular exercise method that emphasizes slower, controlled motions. Family members will have fun staying active and talking about and comparing their results and progress on a new channel on the Wii Menu."

No matter how you decide to spend your tax rebate checks the main think to keep in mind is what is the optimum benefit that I may get from this. Consumers still have few more days to think about it as the government put the 2008 stimulus checks in the mail today. Consider your long term health and body fitness as the stimulus tax rebates are coming this week.
