You can barely dance on stable ground. Yet, when you see these treadmill dance videos you want to try it- don’t you? You find yourself running in step with the beat of your music and think, maybe I’ll just add in a shoulder pump.

Or, maybe that’s just me. And, my love of rhythm has only grown since Life Fitness added music video content to our cardio products.

The concept known as ‘flow’ involves finding something you enjoy doing so much that you lose track of time while doing it. It’s always important to stay mentally aware of your movements when using fitness equipment, however, you can trick your mind and body into losing track of time and getting into an exercise ‘flow’ with a few tricks. .

TV doesn’t have to mean sedentary. Multitask by watching TV when you work out and you may be able to find the ‘flow’ more easily. The TVs in your gym are meant to act as healthy distractions while you exercise.

Try aligning your next gym visit with timing of a favorite TV show – watch it from a fitness machine instead of your couch, and let your mind escape while your body continues working out.

Winding through the French Alps, The Col de la Colombière mountain pass is a cyclists dream. Beautiful scenery coupled with challenging climbs make for a great workout. The stretch of road has actually been used as a section of the Tour de France in the past, giving the best in the world a run for their money.
