I know I’ve said it over and over again, I am working to get into shape.
This last week, I lost 6.2 pounds! I know I won’t be able to sustain that type of progress (granted, I’m still keeping my fingers crossed and working hard), I could certainly use some help. So at the end of last year, I received some fitness equipment from Kohl’s to help me hit this goal.
I love an elliptical. It is the backbone of my home gym. With the extra weight, I haven’t been able to really get on a treadmill for some time, and the elliptical gives me an excellent workout. Three times a week, I’ve been jumping on the ProForm Easy Strider! I can easily fit it in my living room because it has front mech ellipticals, which is awesome because it takes up a smaller footprint in the home compared to a rear mech ellipticals and is generally more aesthetically pleasing. This machine comes loaded with features that you would see in $799 price point elliptical; Inertia Enhanced Flywheel, SMR, Upper Body Grips, Transport Wheels, IPOD Compatible Audio, On-board 8 week weight loss programming & Workout Fan.
I tend to have a lot of typing to do. Now, I don’t have to choose between whether I’m going to work out or just work. I moved the bike into my bedroom and whenever I need to work out while I work, I jump on for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour.
The ProForm Desk Bike allows you to stay active while you work if you so choose. The desk attaches and detaches very easily. If there is a knock on home fitness equipment, it is the space it takes up, this design has worked to solve that. Some additional cool features to look at are the Inertia Enhanced Flywheel, Over-sized Cushion Seat, Vertical Seat Adjustment, SMR Magnetic Resistance & Portability Wheels.
I found my love for rowing when I started a new workout program last year. Whenever I saw rowing on the schedule, I would get as close to giddy as I can get, and get ready to race. I had to get one for my home gym as soon as I could. The rower works your back and your legs and I would always feel like I got a full-body workout even with rowing simply 500 or 1000 meters (less than 5 minutes). The Stamina Magnetic Rowing Machine fits easily in any corner. When it’s standing, takes up the size of less than a side table.
After working out, relax and massage. I take the BackTrac Back Massager, lay down and meditate while slowing rolling across the massage elements. Each element provides acupressure to reduce trigger point tenderness, a deep massage to aid muscle function and to gently stretch your spine. This takes no time to set up or put away but keeps your body relaxed as a much-needed massager.
In general fitness equipment takes some time to set up. ProForm has worked extremely hard to make this as smooth and easy as possible.
My Personal Mission
I am now on a mission to hit my weight loss goals. This time around, it doesn’t hurt that my husband is in on the plan, so we’ve been alternating the use of the fitness equipment most evenings. Is working out part of your New Year’s Resolution? What are your plans?
