Essential Fitness Equipment for a Small Home Gym

With thousands of calories ready to be consumed for the holidays and New Year’s resolutions looming around the corner, now is the perfect time to begin planning that home gym. The gyms will be packed around this time and you’ll be fighting for every single machine. You’ll most likely spend more time standing in line for gym machines than actually using them. We discuss the merits of having fitness equipment at home over going to the gym on our FAQ page. Starting a mini-gym in your home can be a daunting task. We know you might now have thousands and thousands of dollars to spend on an entire circuit, so we’ll break down the essential pieces of equipment that you must have in order to get that total workout!

  1. Functional Trainer

The functional trainer is the be-all end-all in all-in-one strength machines. Although functional trainers are generally a little tall, they are wonderful space savers that are absolute musts for home gyms. A functional trainer generally consists of a weight stack (or two) and some cables and pulleys. Some of them also have a chin-up bar attached. They allow for a total body strength workout all in the convenience of using only one machine. Functional trainers not only save you space but also money since this is basically the only strength machine you need if you’re doing the basic fundamental exercises.

Alternatively, if you prefer working with free weights, then it’s best to get a barbell, some dumbbells, a power rack and an adjustable bench. That would be a great set-up for all your strength needs if you do not prefer a functional trainer.

  1. A cardio machine

If you are unsure of which cardio machine is right for you, we have a blog post about it! To sum it up though, all home gyms would feel empty without a great cardio machine. If you are really pressing for space, we highly recommend a spin bike like the Star Trac NXT or another similar indoor cycle like the Matrix Livestrong. Pedaling on a spin bike can be tons of fun and burns a great deal of calories if used in interval training. Alternatively, if you have a little bit more space, a great all-in-one cardio machine is the Precor AMT. The Precor AMT can be used as a standard elliptical, a stepper, or however else you want to use it. It is a very versatile machine.

Pairing a cardio machine with a functional trainer and you’ll have essentially everything you’ll need for a total body workout right in your own home. Of course you are free to expand your gym and get more equipment for more options. Luckily, we sell everything here at Primo Fitness.

Best Gym Equipment for Glutes

Want to participate in the fitness fashion of yoga pants but don’t feel confident in your backside? The gluteus (minimus, medius and maximus) is the most targeted body parts in terms of toning, only trailing the stomach. Besides the aesthetic benefits of a firm and perky posterior, strengthening the glutes will aid you in a variety of health benefits. The glutes are responsible for sitting down, standing up, lifting heavy objects, sprinting and changing direction and jumping. Strengthening the glutes, in addition to the hips, also will help stabilize your back and improve posture. They are a very vital muscle to strengthen if you wish to increase your athletic performance. If you are planning to hit the gym with your glutes in mind, we’ll help you out by listing the most effective fitness equipment for working them.

15315-a-healthy-young-woman-warming-up-for-exercise-outdoors-pv

  1. Treadmill

In order to tone the gluteus, it is important to burn away excess fat and rid yourself of cellulite. The best method for fat burning is definitely cardio. The added advantage of a treadmill is that many of them have the option for interval training. Sprinting activates nearly every muscle in the gluteus muscle group, so it is a great exercise for both burning calories and strengthening.

  1. Stepmill

Another cardio machine that can help melt away the fat and help you sculpt your backside. This can serve as an alternative for a treadmill if you have knee issues or can’t withstand high impact exercises. For maximum benefit to your maximus, let go of the side railings to force your glutes to take the brunt of the stabilization duties. Doing this for around 20 minutes at moderate intensity is recommended.

  1. Squat Rack

A squat rack will aid you in performing the best exercise for working your glutes, the squat. The squat is the single best move to obtaining a quality backside. To properly perform a squat, have your feet parallel to each other and keep them shoulder width apart. Look ahead at a spot on the wall and focus on it. Lower your hips and keep your spine in the neutral position. A squat rack will help you if you are squatting with a barbell.

  1. Leg Press

The leg press machine is essentially a squat machine but with the user in an inverted position. The leg press is great because you have all the benefits of doing a squat, but not having to worry about your back. You can also add more weights to the machine to increase the work on your glutes.

We hope that these four machines will help you tone your posterior into what you’ve always dreamed of. Whether it’s a peach shape or a bubble, using the right machines and putting in the work will help you reach your goal.

What Fitness Equipment is Best for Losing Weight?

Most people enter the world of fitness and exercise with the intention of losing weight so it is probably very important to know which exercise machines melt away the calories. We do also strongly recommend adding in strength and weight training to your routine in order to accelerate your weight loss. The more muscle you have, the more effectively you’ll be able to move and burn calories. We’ve narrowed it down to the 5 best cardio machines for fat burning.

1. Treadmills

Due to their simplicity, treadmills are great calorie burners for users of every fitness level. Treadmills utilize the natural movement of walking and running so there is no learning curve involved in using this machine. Running is also extremely effective for losing weight, which is further amplified if you don’t use the sidebars and bear your entire body weight. You can always go for a more intense workout by increasing the incline or by upping the speed.

2. Elliptical Crosstrainers

Elliptical crosstrainers offer many of the same benefits as a treadmill, except that it is low impact which can be a lifesaver if your knees aren’t in their primes. Ellipticals that have movable arms are also wonderful for weight loss because it allows for a full body workout.

3. Stepmills

It is no secret that we love the stepmill and all its benefits. What makes this machine a monster in terms of weight loss is that it requires you to support your entire body weight. Each step forces you to go into an incline and the act is lifting each leg up to each step is quite strenuous, meaning it is great for burning fat. Another added benefit of a stepmill is that is a low impact cardio machine, so there is less strain and wear and tear on your knee.

4. Indoor Cycle

The indoor cycle is a great machine for short, high intensity workouts. Indoor cycling classes generally follow interval training, where the rider alternates between periods of very high intensity, followed with a brief slow down period. These alternating intensities are great for weight loss but it isn’t for everyone. Interval training can be far more intense than traditional training, so make sure you can handle it before you attempt to jump straight into it. You can also take spin classes, which can motivate you to work even harder being alongside people with similar goals.

5. Rowing Machine

 Using a rowing machine is sort of a mix between cardio and strength training, which is great. What makes working out with a rowing machine so effective is that it is a total body workout. You’re engaging your arms, core and legs

These are the most effective machines for burning calories, but at the end of the day, the machine that works best for you will melt away the fat.

Overall, the Precor 815 upright bike is an effective option for a low-impact cardio workout.

Although the stock seat and pedals are high quality and extremely comfortable, a great feature of the upright bike is the ability to switch them out to your own pedals and seats. This allows for the most comfortable workout which will allow you to work even harder.

5 Benefits of Elliptical Machines

The elliptical machine is easily one of the most popular machines in the gym, but does this machine truly merit the fame? Are people just mindlessly lining up behind the ellipticals because that’s the only thing they’ve ever known? Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the elliptical machines being all hype, because there are a variety of great benefits.

DSC_0381

1. It’s a low impact way to get cardio

Not everyone is an athletic beasts training to compete in fitness competitions and marathons, so it’s great to know that there are machines that are designed so that anyone of any fitness level and benefit from. For individuals with bone or joint conditions, the elliptical is a great choice because it’s low impact on the joints. Unlike the treadmill, your feet generally do not leave the floor on an elliptical so there is no harsh impact on your joints and bones.

2. It works your calf and hamstring muscles

A fun fact about elliptical machines is that may of them also go backwards. If you have ever tried moonwalking, you may have noticed that it utilizes different muscles than walking forward. The same concept is true of ellipticals that allow you to go backwards. While going forward on an elliptical will also work  your calf and hamstring muscles, backward movement will put more emphasis on these muscles.

3. It also works your gluteus maximus and hip muscles

The elliptical is a great machine to firm up your behind and get strength in your hips, which is important for basically any daily activity. While the gluteus maximus does get a lot of emphasis and attention in the fitness world, the external hip muscles are a little more under the radar. Using an elliptical is a great way to strengthen both of these very important muscles.

4. It’s a full body exercise

Another positive of an elliptical machine is that many of them have movable arms which allows for a full body workout. A full body workout not only burns more calories, but it also works to tone and firm the muscles in your arm. An elliptical with movable arms will not only work  your legs, but your chest, shoulders and arms also. This allows for a quick full body cardio workout.

5. Workouts are full customizable

This depends on the type of elliptical you have, but in general, most ellipticals have a variety of settings. The most common one being resistance.  Adjusting resistance will increase or decrease the level of difficulty to properly suit your goals. Many ellipticals also have built in workout routines which are tailored for whatever you are training for.

How to Build a Home Gym on a Budget

Convenience is key for many when it comes to getting in shape and working out. The most common excuses to avoiding a workout is usually “I’m too tired to go to the gym” and “There’s no time to go to the gym” but these excuses are a thing of the past if you build a gym right in your home. There’s also no worries of distractions, obnoxious people, feeling self conscious and intimidated or terrible music blasting through the speakers. When you have a home gym, you can enter your own world, in the convenience of your home, and get the workout you want.

gym-equipment-setup

1. Buy the right equipment

Many people avoid building their own home gym because they fear that it’ll cost them a fortune, but this is not the case if you know what type of equipment to buy. There are some home gym essential machines that are extremely versatile and will save you the money of buying other machines. The centerpiece of your home gym should be a power rack. Power racks are especially important because when working out at home, you most likely won’t have a spotter so the pins on the rack can prevent injuries when lifting. You can also basically do any free weight exercise with the assistance of a power rack. Of course, using a power rack requires that you also buy some free weights.

Another essential unit is an adjustable bench. An adjustable bench will save you money from buying an incline, decline and flat bench. Alternatively if you are not a fan of free weights, you can also opt to purchase a functional trainer. This is an all-in-one strength machine that will help you perform both upper body and lower body exercises.

No matter your choice in terms of strength machines, you will also need a cardio machine to have a complete home gym. Cardio machines are essentially up to preference. The number one factor you should be looking for is enjoyment. If you’re not going to buy your favorite cardio machine, then you’re not going to want to use it and won’t be as motivated when you’re on it. Space is generally limited in a home gym so a great move would be going for an all-in-one cardio machine, such as the Precor AMT 100i Elliptical.

Even though you’re creating a home gym, it is highly recommended that you do  not go for equipment meant for the home. They’re built far less durable than commercial grade machines.

2. Location, location, location

You need a space dedicated to your home gym. You shouldn’t make half of your living room into a home gym, but rather have a space that is purely created to motivate. The most common choice is a garage which works great since it has ample space and can be free of distractions. Setting up your gym with speakers can also help with motivation. It’s a great feeling to have the beats and pounding bass pumping through your veins. It would also be a good idea to get a mirror so you can see yourself workout and fix your form if you are having trouble.

3. Have a plan

This is pretty obvious but it’s a good thought to keep in mind. We’ve given you the outline and essentials, but ultimately this is your gym. This is the space you’ll be getting fit in and hopefully spending hundreds of hours in so you should be happy with it. Before you start purchasing equipment, create a list of everything that you absolutely must have. Draw out a floor plan and make sure that all the equipment can fit comfortably. Hang up some motivational posters to inspire you. Make it your own.

We hope this guide has helped you begin the planning stages of your home gym. If you need more help or advice, or want to buy some commercial grade gym equipment for a discount price, contact us!

 

What is the Matrix Krankcycle?

matrix krankcycle 1

You may or may not have seen this odd looking exercise machine and wondered what exactly it is and what it does. The name “cycle” usually implies that it is some sort of bicycle, but that is not the case here. It involves cycling, but with your arms. Arm cranking machines aren’t new, but for some reason, using your arms for cardio has never really caught on. It is also a great way to stay in shape when your lower body is injured.

The Johnny G Matrix Krankcycle, invented by a Johnny G in a collaboration with Matrix, is a great tool for both working on your upper body, including the core and arms, and also getting some great cardio.

Each of the arms are independent which allows for a greater variety of movements. Another wonderful feature is that the machine can be lowered to around chest level and be used as a rowing machine. There is a knob to adjust resistance to make sure your workout is at your optimal level. In terms of adjustability, the Krankcycle is also very versatile. The head to be moved in a variety of positions, resistance can be changed, and the shape of the seat allows for seamless transition between seated workouts and standing workouts. There is also an option for seatless models, which allows for wheelchair accessibility.

You may have also noticed that the cranks have a narrow axis, which allows for a higher rotation per minute and a more intense workout. There are tons of amazing possibilities for this machine so we highly encourage you to maybe try it out and step out of your comfort zone.

Don’t know where to find this great used gym machine? Luckily, we have a few in stock on our website. Check out the Matrix Krankcycle!

Which cardio machine is best? – Treadmill, elliptical, bike or stairs?

Which cardio machine is best? – Treadmill, elliptical, bike or stairs?

When looking to burn fat and melt away the calories, the most efficient method is cardiovascular exercise. There are many options for cardio machines, each with its benefits and drawbacks, but the most cost efficient way is to buy used gym equipment. The key to choosing the right machine is to use a machine that you find most enjoyable and that you are most comfortable with. You shouldn’t be dreading your workout, and the more fun you have, the harder you will work and the more benefits you will see. With that being said, knowing the basic functions and features of each cardio machine can help you further reach your fitness goals.

Treadmill

Pros – The treadmill is the leader in burning calories among cardio machines. It is also simple to use and does not require adjustments from person to person, so there is no fear of using the machine incorrectly. Many treadmills also have an incline or decline option for lower or higher difficulty. Treadmills help train the natural running motion, so it is an effective cardio machine for everyday life. It is also far more difficult to cheat and slack off on a treadmill.

Cons – The downside of the treadmill is that there is more impact on the joints than with other cardio machines. If you have not worked out in a while, it would be better to ease in to the other cardio machines to avoid soreness and too much stress on the joints.

Elliptical

Pros – Elliptical machines are also found in every gym and are extremely popular due to less impact on the joints. Many gym users also comment on the fun factor when using an elliptical, as quality elliptical machines create a smooth and flowing motion. Many elliptical machines also utilize arm motions which would be beneficial for a full body workout.

Cons – The elliptical does not burn as many calories as the treadmill. Also, if you are training for a sport that involves running or just running in general, it would generally be more beneficial to repeat the exact running form in order to gain muscle memory. Unfortunately, due to the comfort of the machine, it is also easier to just ease along without much intensity. Luckily, to combat this, many elliptical machines have resistance settings to further increase difficulty.

Bikes

Pros – Stationary bikes (whether they are upright bikes or recumbent bikes) offer a complete cardio workout with the least impact on the joints. Fitness bikes are also great for people who are training for bike events because they can get used to the motion of pedaling. Many bikes are also equipped with televisions, which would allow for goers to catch up on their shows while still getting a quality workout.

Cons – To make best use of the stationary bike, users must adjust it to maximize the workout and avoid injury. Many people sit too low on the bike, which causes too much pressure on the knee. Your legs should be able to go through the full range of motions when pedaling on the bike.

Stepmills and Stairsteppers

Pros – Walking up stairs is a great way to work out your calf muscles, upper thighs and the behind. It can also burn a good amount of calories, similar to running up an incline treadmill. The most beneficial stair steppers have belts that constantly rotate the steps.

Cons – Due to the constant standing motion, users with back issues may not want to use the stepmills or stairsteppers. Also if users clutch the railings of the stair climbers, there will only be minimal benefits. This machine also leads users to be more prone to accidents due to the climbing nature of it.

Conclusion

The main factor that you should be looking for when choosing a cardio machine is enjoyableness. If working out becomes a chore, then you’re less likely to exert yourself and won’t work out as long. Even if another cardio machine has a higher calories burned per hour ratio, if you don’t enjoy the machine, you won’t exert enough effort to burn those calories anyway. Each machine has its pros and cons, so the best technique is to try them all out and find out what you enjoy!

Precor AMT 100i Elliptical Crosstrainer Review

Precor 100i – Adaptive Motion Trainer
AMT 100i

Precor has raised the Fitness Bar up a notch with the all new Precor AMT Elliptical Cross-Trainer. The Precor AMT takes elliptical training to an all-new level. The Precor AMT makes use of the user’s natural body motion to adjust the stride length and motion without the user needing making any adjustments to the machine.

With the dual action arms the Precor AMT Elliptical offers total control of upper body and lower body resistance, providing a customized workout. For the first time the Precor AMT Elliptical gives the user the immediacy, variety, and natural feeling of running outdoors and allows you to customize your stride length and resistance at any time during the work out.

What makes the Precor AMT 100i so popular is the ability for the user to alter their work-out at their slightest whim, no two work-outs are ever the same. This keeps your mind engaged and your body torn between wanting to experiment with new movements and needing a second to catch your breath.

Precor AMT 100i Features Summary:

  • Unique commercial-quality cardio and muscle toning trainer allows you to adapt to your movement on the fly
  • Contra lateral arm movement for natural motion reflecting the way you naturally move
  • 0- to 27-inch stride length; 4 programs including fat burner, heart rate control, interval and manual
  • Handheld heart rate monitoring with compatibility for wireless monitors
  • 350-pound maximum user weight

Precor AMT Customer Review:

I took the plunge and bought this trainer for my home gym. I have tried numerous machines and found that most ellipticals have a few drawbacks. They are great for reducing impact, compared to a treadmill, but usually constrain movement to a fixed motion. Other than being able to vary the stride length a couple of inches on a few models, they all have exactly the same motion, over and over. It was difficult to find one that fit my gait, and at the same time be suitable for my wife who is only 5 feet tall. Actually impossible would be a better description.

This machine is unique, and should be in its own class of truly variable elliptical training. The stride can be ANYTHING you make it; from stepping to full running gait to a pedaling stride. It even allows a backward pedal stride if you want to really mix up the routine. The machine doesn’t control the gait. You do, and you can vary it any time without touching any electronic controls. You’ll need to try it to really understand.

Very highly recommended!

Life Fitness Equipment

Life Fitness LifeCycleLife Fitness Equipment

In 1968, the Brunswick Corporation purchased a new division called LifeCycle, which was later changed to Life Fitness. Mastermind Keene P. Dimck was the person that created the Life Fitness Company. Now, it the most trusted name in treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes and strength equipment manufacturer in the world. The name Life Fitness stands for strong, heavy duty, durable and low maintenance home and commercial fitness equipment.

Later, Life Fitness was purchased by Bally Manufacturing Corporation. Very soon after that, Life Fitness rose to the top of the fitness equipment industry. Life Fitness has over 1,700 employees with 12 international subsidiaries and manufacturing warehouses worldwide.

They also have over 186 dealers and distributors in over 120 countries. To date, they have more than 300 different cardio and strength fitness products for both the home and commercial line. Life Fitness also holds 50 patents in the United States, making them one of the world leaders in fitness equipment manufacturing.

 

HammerStrengthHammer Strength

Acquired by Life Fitness in 1990, there are over 80 different commercial exercise machines in the Hammer Strength product line up, designed for the user to load and unload weight plates. This gives the user more control and safety which is lessened with free weights. Proper form is not always correct with free weights limiting results. Hammer Strength equipment insures proper form and makes the exercise more comfortable.

A few years later Life Fitness extended the same motion technology of its revolutionary plate loaded machines to its “Motion Technology Selectorized Equipment Line”, called Hammer Strength MTS.

Hammer Strength MTS incorporates the same biomechanical integrity of the plate loaded products, but with the ease and convenience of selectorized weight stacks.
