Below please find descriptions explaining the catagories of equipment.
Elliptical trainers are exercise equipment that combine the movements of the stair climber, treadmill and the exercise bike into one. These machines combine the movements and benefits of hiking, cross country skiing, and biking. One of the best things about elliptical trainers is they don’t create any impact, so it’s easy on your joints. Not only do these machines provide a great cardio workout, they tend to help you burn more calories than a treadmill or stationary bike. Many models have dual action handle bars, so you can exercise your entire body and get a true cross training workout. This is an ideal workout for those who prefer not to run or jog.
Riding on a stationary exercise bike provides a variety of health benefits and tends to be particularly suitable for people with certain types of back conditions. These machines offer much less impact on the knees, hips and other joints than walking or running. This piece of equipment tends to be one of the more gentle forms of cardiovascular activity. Exercise bikes help strengthen the leg and thigh muscles, including the hamstrings in the back of the thigh and provide a fun, consistent, reasonable means of exercising, improving cardio functions and losing weight.
Walking and hiking are two of the most popular exercises and this is why treadmills are one of the most popular pieces of indoor equipment. Anyone can begin these activities with little or no preparation and can do them safely at practically any age. The great thing about using a treadmill is you can create different workouts to suit all energy levels. A treadmill is a great way to build well-shaped, healthy looking legs, cut fat and build aerobic stamina. For those who wish to run like the wind, high intensity jogging will burn a lot of calories, further increase your metabolism and also assist in building core muscles. Incorporate some hill running and further improve your overall power, strength and fitness level.
Steppers offer a great aerobic workout and are wonderful for toning your hips and thighs. In addition, these awesome cross-training machines help get you into shape for activities such as hiking or skiing by mixing with other aerobic activities such as biking or walking. If you are beginner, you can start at a low intensity level and gradually build up to more challenging levels. These low shock machines offer a high-intensity work out and some people even find it easy to read while on the machine.
Did you know that a rowing machine is ideal for losing weight? These machines have great calorie burning potential because they exercise larger muscle groups of both the upper and lower body regions. They help tone all the thighs and buttocks and firm up the arms and all the back muscles together. Another positive point about the rowing machine is the ability for the user to create a rhythmic style while exercising. This technique really helps the body “switch” into that fat burning zone and after about 10 minutes of rowing you can rest assured your body is burning fat constantly to help you lose fat weight effectively. Rowing gives you a full-body work out and if done properly, most of the force used is from the legs. For people with not a lot of time, this machine is ideal because you benefit by burning lots of calories in less workout time than some other pieces of equipment.
Multifunction Weight Training Systems
Most people do not think of weight training when they are trying to lose weight. By using weights, you build muscle and in turn increase your metabolic rate. This is the part that helps you burn calories easier and therefore helps you loose weight. Achieve your own firming results with the multifaceted moves that will target every major muscle. With multiple upper-and lower-body exercise options in a fully adjustable weight system, it’s easy to achieve maximum strength-training results in a short amount of time. Achieve your strength-training goals by performing different exercises designed to build muscle, strength and balance.
Individual Weight Training Systems & Free Weights
You are ready to start lifting weights but don’t know whether you should opt for machine weights or the free weights ? Beginners usually start with weight machines because they do not require the coordination that free weights require. Each machine is built to move in a track or line so the weight cannot wobble or fall and does not need to be supported by the body. These machines also have a specific purpose, making it easy to use for that particular exercise. With free weights when you lift a dumbbell, you not only lift the weight, you must balance the weight while performing the exercise properly. These tend to offer more flexibility and let you alter your exercises slightly. With free weights, such as a dumbbell, you can also do a wide variety of exercises and focus on various muscle groups.

Not only can inversion therapy be used to treat back pain, but it also can be used as a method to reverse other negative effects that gravity has on your body. Inversion represents the Quiet Side of Fitness, helping your body to recover from the compressive effects of gravity and daily activities. Doctors, physical therapists and sports trainers recognize inversion as a safe and effective form of therapy for the spine and weight-bearing joints.
