Need a Good Workout But Don’t Know Where to Start? | Fitness Expo

Are you in need of a good cardio workout but have no idea where to start, what you are doing, or what type of equipment you need? Our fitness experts at Fitness Expo are here to help. Our highly trained staff of fitness experts knows everything about every machine we offer, and can help you navigate through the many options available.


First, you want to identify what your fitness goals are. Do you want to get in shape or lose weight? Are you training for a 5k, 10k or marathon? Do you just want to be healthier? There is plenty of fitness equipment to match your needs and help you meet your fitness goals.


The Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT) is a great machine for any goals because of its versatility. You can start your cardio workout by walking and increase your speed or stride with the motion of your body. The AMT is adaptive, so it changes with you. It is similar in design to an elliptical, but gives you may workout options for walking, running, or climbing.


For constant running motion without all the stress on your joints, the elliptical is a quality machine to have. You have all the functionality of a treadmill, but your feet never leave the pads. There are many customizable options with an elliptical that allow you to change your speed and the length of your stride and also keep track of your stats with the on-screen display.


A treadmill offers many of the options the elliptical and AMT do, but is more natural and may be better designed for a marathon trainer. It gives you a more realistic cardio training opportunity by allowing you to run in place. On a treadmill your body is doing all the work it would if you were walking or running outdoors. The cardio activity you do on a treadmill mirrors your cardio activity on pavement, but with the benefit of being inside and tracking your stats.


Once you have identified your specific fitness or training goals, you will want to visit a Fitness Expo store. We have several convenient locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge, Metairie, Shreveport, and Kenner, as well as a location in Jackson, Mississippi. Each location is staffed with our highly qualified fitness experts, who can take you through the process of picking out equipment that is right for you.


The key to getting and staying healthy, being fit or training for a marathon is cardio exercise. Cardio exercise can be found in many different forms, from biking to hiking to sprinting, and it is up to you to determine what you are looking for. Then it is up to us to help you actualize your goals with the right equipment. Get fit, workout, and be healthy with cardio training equipment that is built to last.
