All the Best Ways to Get Fit… At Home!
This entry was posted on September 4, 2018.
Let’s face it, with our daily lives busier than ever, getting to the gym can be a difficult feat to accomplish these days.
Either you have to wake up at the crack of dawn to drag yourself out of bed only to rush through a workout and shower before having to report to the boss… or, you end up hitting the gym on your commute home when you’re already exhausted from the day’s work.
And when you do go to the gym, it’s crowded, all your favorite equipment is taken, and the in-gym TVs are tuned to some station you’d never watch.
The solution? Working out at home!
By working out at home, you won’t have to fight for equipment, you can blast that killer playlist at full-volume, and you don’t have to worry about whether or not your clothes match. You can focus completely on your workout, all while bingeing your favorite show on Netflix!
Getting fit at home is easier than ever, and we at Fitness Expo Stores can give you the lowdown on all the best equipment you’ll need to get fit in the comfort of your own home.
In fact, if you’re looking for a great selection of Metairie home workout equipment at fair prices, give us a call or message us today. We’d love to help you find the perfect fit for your home gym.

Abs – everyone wants them
Everyone wants rock hard abs and a flat stomach, but finding the right Metairie exercise equipment for abs can be a chore.
We suggest investing in a high-quality machine such as the Precor 240i Stretch Trainer, which works to tone and tighten your midsection far better than hundreds of sit-ups or crunches can, and with less strain on your neck and back. Not only is a great Precor machine the first choice of Metairie residents who want exercise equipment for their abs, but frequent use will help improve flexibility and overall fitness. Become a healthier, happier you in just a few extra minutes after each workout.
Running or Walking
It might not be the most exciting, but there’s nothing simpler – or more inexpensive – than lacing up your shoes and hitting the streets for a good old fashioned run. If you don’t have much experience in the running department, consider starting out by walking and slowly introducing periods of jogging until you notice your cardiovascular and muscular endurance begin to pick up. There are tons of apps and online programs out there designed for all levels of runner, whether you’re a total beginner wanting to run a 5K or an intermediate runner looking to up the ante and tackle a half or full marathon this year.
Work your legs, arms, and core while vastly improving cardiovascular fitness with a rowing machine. Feel the wind in your hair as you imagine gliding through the water on a crisp fall day. Rowing machines make great full-body workouts, improving muscle strength and endurance with one exercise. Pick your resistance level by selecting from hydraulic, resistance, magnetic resistance, or water rowers.
Get strong and ripped in the comfort of your own home by investing in a home gym, weight bench, or set of free weights. If you’re short on space, try the Torque 9 Fold Away Strength Trainer, which gives you all the essentials – pull-up bar, squat harness, and strap handles – in one convenient package that can fold closed to give you more floor space. When building your own home gym, look for equipment that’s versatile enough that it lets you do multiple exercises so you will always have some variety to your routine without having to buy additional equipment.
Elliptical machines allow you to get all the cardio benefit of running without the pressure and force on your joints. For those with really sensitive joints, you can also find seated elliptical machines so you’re not putting your full body weight on your knees and ankles, causing soreness and gaps in training. Elliptical machines are great for the cardio junkie who wants to be able to go from a nice, easy pace to really ramp up the speed without the worry of tripping on your own feet like you could on a treadmill.
There is a lot that can be done to move you toward your fitness goals with just your body weight. Squats, lunges, push ups, dips, and crunches all can be performed individually or as part of a circuit to help tone and strengthen your muscles. Depending on how quickly you perform each move, your bodyweight workout can also double as a great cardio burn that gets your heart pumping and the sweat flowing.
Whether you pull out your trusty bicycle and take it outside for a ride, or you opt for a slicker indoor version such as the Inspire Fitness CB1 Air Bike, this childhood pastime is also a great way to get fit as an adult. Pedal as fast or slow as you like, and increase the resistance to simulate climbing a big hill. You’ll get your heart pumping and your legs moving without ever leaving your house!
