The closest fitness center is a 40 hour drive from my home.
Because of this, I invested into the necessities of a home gym.
I’ve learned that exercise equipment is rather expensive. I’ve gradually been increasing my inventory of workout equipment. I’ve bought a weight bench, dumbbells and kettlebells. I bought myself a yoga mat, resistance bands and a whole jump rope system. I’ve been saving my money to purchase a more complex machine. Now that I’ve got enough money, I can’t decide what type of machine would be the right investment. I’ve looked into the various types of treadmills available, and I’m amazed with the innovative features. There are now modern treadmills on the market that even need electricity. The track moves in reaction to the movement of the feet. Because of this, the treadmill starts up instantly and has no top speed. However, this kind of treadmill is especially costly. I could go for a run outside for free. I’ve also looked into purchasing a stationary bike. I like that pedaling a bike avoids impact on the joints. Using the bike would be helpful to rest my knees, ankles and feet while still offering an aerobic workout. The modern generation of stationary bikes include all sorts of luxuries, including Wi-Fi and interactive programs. I could always use an actual bicycle for nearly all of the same advantages. I am thinking about buying an elliptical. An elliptical doesn’t take up much room and is easy on the joints. The feet never lift off the pedals during the motion, so there’s no stressful impact. Plus, the elliptical provides the opportunity to work the arms. I could increase resistance, involve the whole body and burn a lot of calories in a short time.
