It’s easy to lose sight of your fitness goals, like shedding a few extra pounds when you’re busy juggling daily tasks. While it’s possible to lose weight quickly, ‘crash fitness’ isn’t considered healthy nor is sustainable. Browse the Web and you’ll be bombarded with countless tips, hacks, and trends on weight loss – but if there’s one proven formula, it’s healthy eating plus regular exercise.
When it comes to fitness equipment, there’s one for every goal – or every excuse! Not into working out because you dread cardio workouts? Bored with lifting weights? Are you more into cycling than running? Choose the right home gym equipment or exercise machine for you.
A fixture at most gyms, treadmills can practically be used by anyone. Running helps burn calories, build endurance, and increase stamina all at the same time – and a treadmill at home allows you to do that at your most convenient time. As you incorporate HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts by adjusting the speed and incline settings of your treadmill, your body makes use of more energy, burning more calories.
Opting for a less intense workout that will boost your calorie burn? You can still ramp up your cardio exercise by walking on an incline. NordicTrack treadmills allow you to train longer and quieter at home – with impeccable cushioning and adjustable speed and incline. NordicTrack treadmills also boast its innovative space-saving design, which allows you to fold it away once you’re done.
Not a big fan of running? Looking for a total-body workout that’s gentler on your joints? Elliptical trainers are in the top-tier of low-impact exercise machines. Using an elliptical trainer has a low impact on your body because it doesn’t require your feet to hit the ground, making working out easier on your joints. Make no mistake, though – low-impact doesn’t mean low-intensity. Elliptical trainers offer a wide selection of workouts that either work your entire body or target specific muscles. Not sure how to make the most of an elliptical trainer? NordicTrack and ProForm both offer pre-set workouts you can simply follow.
Relatively considered a low-impact workout, indoor cycling caters to fitness enthusiasts of all levels. Instead of doing cycling on a steady pace, try interval workouts that combine sprints, hill climbs, and flat rides. Studio cycling classes have become a hit because of their sweat-inducing and adrenaline-pumping workouts. You may have even considered booking classes. Whether your schedule is too unpredictable or you can’t stick to a program or routine – an electrifying indoor cycling class is now possible at the comfort of your own home. NordicTrack offers revolutionary studio cycling that boasts HD touch screen which lets you experience interactive coaching and stream high-energy studio sessions with world class trainers.
If you prefer weight-based exercises to lose, multi-gyms are for you. What makes multi-gyms stand out is that they not only burn calories – they help build muscle, too. The more muscles you build, the more calories you burn. Whether you want to get more buff, muscular, or leaner - multi-gyms offer a variety of workouts for your fitness goal.
