As the temperature outside gets colder and the rain turns to snow, most people head indoors to keep up with their exercise routine. What easier way to stay fit all year long than to build an awesome home gym? Options for home exercise equipment may seem limitless. Take a look at our Buyer's Guide to find out what type of exerciser you are, and what type of fitness equipment best fits you and your style.

At Life Fitness, we (of course) love running on treadmills, but sometimes braving the elements is worth it for a little fresh air and sunshine. With the right layers and accessories, there is nothing keeping you from sticking to your outdoor exercise, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites.

Your base layer needs to keep you warm but also wick away sweat to prevent you from getting cold later.

If there is one thing I must do every summer, it has to be taking advantage of the warm weather and being outside as much as possible. There’s nothing better than getting together with your friends and family and partaking in a little friendly competition.  However, summer heat waves can get intense, so here’s my list for everything you need to stay comfortable and cool all summer long, no matter what activity you’re enjoying. 


When running during the summer, staying cool is key. Moisture-wicking tees are the best for keeping the sweat away from your body on those sticky days. Try a Nike Dri-fit top in a fun neon color to stay fashionable (and safe).
