Choosing the Best Fitness Machine for You

Choosing the Best Fitness Machine for You

With all the demands of day-to-day life these days, it can be hard to maintain a good level of fitness. In the United States, many people are becoming obese and suffering from the diseases and poor quality of life that result from this. With a home fitness machine, it becomes a lot easier to avoid these pitfalls.

With so many different brands and types of fitness machines out there, it may seem overwhelming when trying to find the one that is right for you. Here are some of the many great options we can offer for your exercise needs.

AMT or Adaptive Motion Trainer
An AMT machine is good for those wanting to mimic running, walking, or climbing with a low impact workout. We recommend the Precor Adaptive Motion Trainer. Precor is the leader in high quality Adaptive Motion Trainers.

An elliptical provides a low impact total body workout in a very short period of time. It is great for those with limited time to work out. A standard elliptical means the user has to stand for the duration of the workout. A seated elliptical is a good option for seniors and those with physical limitations that don’t allow them to stand for very long. Using an elliptical burns more calories in a shorter time than a recumbent bicycle and the exercise is lower impact.

A treadmill is a good alternative to running, jogging or walking and primarily works the lower body muscles. It is a very space efficient option for those in apartments or limited living spaces because many models can be easily folded up.

Enjoy boating? How about a LifeCore Rower to stay in shape when you can’t get out on the water? A rowing machine works both the upper and lower body. With comfortable seats and great support, a rower makes sure that you get a comfortable workout every time.
