Treadmills or ellipticals are staples for cardio workouts and home gyms, but these days there are plenty of equipment options that help you minimize injury, manage your fitness and maximize your potential.
The first is the Inspire FT2 Functional Trainer. Basic fitness and injury prevention starts with strength, and now you can start a strength routine without spending hours at a gym (and handing over monthly fees). It integrates an Olympic bar, weight stacks and multiple attachments to help you develop a total strength program.
Speaking of total strength, the WaterRower Classic Rower covers cardio and strength in one machine. Working your back, legs and shoulders all at once, it’s a machine that’s challenging and rewarding. You may have noticed it playing a supporting role on House of Cards or making a comeback in gyms with spin-style group classes, but trust us, having one at home is the easiest way to sneak a full-body workout into your busy life. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the real wood finish and easy-to-move design means it can live in your home without dominating the decor.
When you want to take your workout outside without having to pound the pavement, the ElliptiGO hits just the right note. Picture all the benefits of running without any of the impact. You still get fresh air and a great workout but you can go farther than you can while running, without the hunched over posture of riding your bike. It’s a win-win!
Essentially, whatever your style of working out, there’s something to be gained from any of these products. Whether you’re crushing a cardio workout or banging out the last 3 reps of a weight session, or looking for a way to get outside while protecting your knees, there’s a way to get it done. We’re just here to help you get there!
