This entry was posted on November 17, 2015.
It is no secret that exercise, no matter what intensity, is good for you, especially cardiovascular exercise. Activities like walking, running, biking, or climbing can greatly improve your heart health, stamina, and athletic ability and can promote better fitness overall. The question is: what is the right cardio activity for you? Fitness Expo has a team of quality trained fitness experts that can help you answer that question.
Depending on your fitness level and preferred cardio activity, there are a number of machines, from treadmills to ellipticals, to suit your personal needs. We carry the very best quality Precor equipment that can be found in most professional gyms. Precor is built to last, and we want to help you find the right machine for your perfect workout.
For a traditional cardio workout where you can walk or run, the classic treadmill has been around for years. You can do anything from a casual walk to a full-on sprint, and it is completely customizable to give you a variety of options, from speed to incline to impact. You can track your statistics with the on-screen display while you get a good, old fashioned cardio workout.
The elliptical is a very different machine than the treadmill, but no less effective. The elliptical allows you to be in a constant running motion without your feet leaving the pads. You can also take advantage of the poles that you can hold to create an action similar to skiing. The elliptical is a low impact machine that can produce great results, depending on your workout. It also affords you with multiple customization options from stride length to speed, and there is a similar display to help you track your progress.
The Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT) is a very different, and new machine compared to the traditional treadmill and elliptical. It allows you to complete a full cardio workout with natural transitions based on your body’s natural movements. You can easily go from walking or running to climbing or lunging just by changing your body motion, without having to stop the machine or press any buttons. The AMT adapts naturally to your body’s motion, allowing you to have a more complete cardio workout that is directed at multiple muscle groups.
Where a traditional treadmill allows you to change the intensity, speed, and incline of your workout, the AMT is almost intuitive and adapts quickly to a change in activity. No matter what you want to get out of your workout, our fitness experts can help you weigh the pros and cons of each machine and show you the benefits of each.
Don’t let the wrong equipment dictate your workout. Let our fitness experts help you get on the right track.
