What could be more motivating than having your own gym as accessible as inside your very own house? When you make it easier to exercise, you are more likely to do it. Depending on the room in your budget and the room in your house, you can create a home gym that’s
perfect for you.
Consider purchasing home cardio equipment with advanced technology features like an iPod and iPhone docking station, family fitness customization and Virtual Trainer connectivity. The Life Fitness Track Console provides a great workout experience and can be customized to the individual, allowing you to get exactly what you need from the machine and your workout. The Track and its streamlined counterpart, the Go Console, can be added to Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical cross-trainers and LifecycleÒ Exercise Bikes.
A stability ball, resistance tubing and hand weights will give you a complete system for strength training at home. Add a jump rope for cardio. The number of exercises you can do with this combination of equipment is seemingly endless. Use the stability ball to engage your core muscles (abdominal and back) as you try to stay balanced. Resistance bands offer variety and different tension levels switch up the level of difficulty. Plus, you can do all sorts of exercises, from bicep curls to overhead presses with either the bands or hand weights.
A cable motion machine like the Life Fitness G7 Dual Adjustable Pulley gives you the most versatility for cardio and strength in a compact space. The cables allow the person to define the motion of the exercise instead of following a fixed path. This allows for unlimited exercise variety similar to free weights. You can perform several exercises in a row with little rest in-between to increase your heart rate. This style of weight machine is often referred to as a functional fitness system, which basically means that many of the exercises preformed mimic everyday activities, and can ultimately help you move more comfortably throughout your day.
Bottom line, the major advantage of a home gym is convenience. And that convenience can result in a more focused exercise regimen.
