Katie Nolan's trying out new high tech machines for the first time at Green Ridge Rec Center in Roanoke County.

She says, "I just got back from vacation so ever since I have been here I have been in here working out and got all my friends to join me."

If your friends can't be there in person, you can find them on Facebook. Many of the new equipment allows you to log on to the Internet and connect with friends in many different ways. In addition to technology, the machines are physically challenging. One of the most challenging new additions is the Jacob's Ladder made popular NBC's hit show Biggest Loser.
