Fitness is a destination and it has many trails to take to get there. These five machines are some initiative tools to make the journey to fitness quicker and more fun. In this list you will see three cardio units that use more muscles than most machines and have some strength benefits as well. The two strength units are not your average machines, they give you so many options in one machine.
AMT in action
The Precor AMT allows you to climb, walk, run, and cycle standing all in one machine. This is the only cardio machine that follows your every movement while eliminating impact. It takes most people about five minutes to get used to the response of the AMT. If you take the time to learn, it will change the path of your workout forever.
Inspire Cross Row
Rowing is a long staple of fitness and a favorite of the extremely fit. This unit is a new wrinkle to that, it allows pushing and pulling. The first couple of minutes on this machine can be awkward for some but after you are in sink, look out calories!
ElliptoGo outdoor elliptical
Look at the picture and tell me who do you thing is burning more calories? The person on the ElliptiGo for sure because he is not sitting on one of the biggest muscle groups in the body. Use your Gluteus maximus, don’t sit on it for maximum calorie burn.
FT2 home gym
The FT2 home gym has hundreds of functional exercises and a smith machine all included. Most smith machines need free weights not this one it hooks into the weight stack. It has a cool feature that allows you to double the weight stack to make sure it has enough resistance (or just tell your significant other you use the weight multiplier). So many exercise can be confusing, but this company gives you a free app that shows you the exercise (in picture and video) as well as can track your workouts. Yes I said free!
Some people say you can stand on this machine and get in shape. They are full of poop but if you workout while on it the my7 will give you a killer workout. The My7 is a whole body vibration machine with built in workouts that will direct you through the unknown to the fittest version of you. For all the naysayers out there find a machine and a instructor that knows how to use it and prepare to change your story.
