Training for a Marathon

Whether you are a veteran marathon runner or a first-timer, you should always train your body to be ready for the stress of running the multiple miles that are expected of you in a marathon. As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect! This is especially true when it comes to running because your body needs to become use to the compressive and ground reaction forces on your musculoskeletal system while running, as well as the increased intensity of your breathing and heart rate. Your muscle and skeleton’s ability to bounce back depends much on your resiliency that builds up over time through proper training.

Benefits of Running on a Treadmill

While running outside gives you the experience of running against wind resistance, and helps you to get use to the terrain changes just like how you might experience in a marathon, there are still many advantages that running on a treadmill can bring you. Rain or shine you can always get a workout on a treadmill without having to walk, jog or run in stormy, cold or hot weather conditions.  There is no need to find an uphill cliff to run on if you can do that from the comfort of your own home by adjusting the incline options on your treadmill. Many people like to go outside and jog after they come home from work, but by that time it could already be dark outside, so for many people personal safety is a big concern, which running on a treadmill would certainly eliminate since you are either indoors in your home or in a gym. Another great advantage of using a treadmill is that you can watch TV while workout out. There is no need to miss your favorite shows because you want to stay in shape.

The Best Cardio Machine For You

Cardio Blog Composite

A cardio machine is an excellent addition to a home gym, as it provides a way to get much needed cardio exercise without having to go outside. With so many different kinds of machines available, it can be a challenge deciding which one to run with. While we’ve recently looked at the benefits of treadmills in a previous post, ellipticals and stationary bikes are also viable options to be considered. Here is an evaluation on how each of these cardio machines stack up.  

Treadmills

Cardio Blog 1  

Pros:

  • Treadmills  offer plenty of options for users to customize their workouts, such as incline, speed, and specific training programs.
  • Replicate a natural form of running, so they have little to no learning curve.
  • Promote the most calorie burn compared to other cardio machines.
  • The high impact nature of a treadmill helps in promoting bone strength.

Cons:

  • Since a treadmill is high-impact, it can be potentially harmful on those with weak joints and ligaments.
  • Treadmills require little involvement from the upper body, so these muscle groups aren’t engaged.
  • Usually bulky and difficult to fit into tighter spaces
  • Treadmills usually cost more, and this goes up with their various additional features.

Ellipticals

Cardio Blog 3

Pros:

  • Involve the upper body in its movement, so these muscle groups are active alongside the lower body.
  • Low impact, making it desirable for those with weaker joints.
  • Can be run in reverse, allowing it to target more lower body muscles than other machines.
  • Users often perceive that they are not working too hard, but in reality their bodies are working harder than they think they are.

Cons:

  • Not quite as beginner friendly as other machines, as the upper and lower body motions in unison might be a little tricky at first.
  • With less impact, it also means bones aren’t as strengthened as other machines.
  • The motion ellipticals require is not typically used in everyday life.
  • The spacing of elliptical steps might not fit well with a shorter or taller person’s stride.

Stationary Bikes Cardio Blog 3

Pros

  • Takes up less room than other machines, so it can be more easily placed in areas with less space.
  • Usually regarded as the most comfortable, with different seating options depending on the model.
  • Users control how fast the bike works, which makes it a safer option than other machines.
  • Zero impact exercise, so they can be good choice for those recovering from injuries as many models offer support designed to help parts like the back and ankles

Cons

  • Bikes usually offer the least amount of calorie burn, partly due to no involvement from the upper body
  • Bikes force the majority of their stress on the knee, which is a common area for troublesome joints
  • Being in a seated position for a while can wind up making your rear end sore.
  • Improper form can actually harm user ability to use bikes effectively.

In the end, these are just a few of the factors to considering when picking out the ideal cardio machine, and the best cardio machine is the one that you like using the most and will thus encourage you to use it to improve your cardio. If you have any questions, our team is more than happy to answer any questions you might have!

 

Tips on Buying a Used Treadmill

Don’t dread the tread(mill)

Ask someone to name a piece of gym equipment and they’ll probably name the treadmill. There is no modern image of fitness more tired and true than a person running in the gym on a treadmill. The first consumer treadmill designed for home use was developed in the late 1960s and ever since then, the treadmill has become a staple of American fitness.

Modern gyms are beginning to look like the set of Star Trek, with touchscreens, LCD TVs and alien looking machines abundant; but the treadmill, minus a few bells and whistles added to the consoles, has stayed fundamentally the same. This is because the treadmill simply gets the job done in a variety of ways. The best way to buy an affordable used treadmill, that will last, is to buy one from a used gym equipment supplier, such as Primo Fitness!

Benefits of a treadmill:

1.       Ease of Use

First, the treadmill is extremely simple to use. People instinctively know how to walk and run, so there is no learning curve required to use the machine. Treadmills may differ cosmetically and internally, but once a person has used one, they can use them all. They also do not require adjustments to the machine itself for different people. Once someone hops off, someone else can hop on and immediately begin their workout. The simplicity is what draws many to the treadmill.

2.       Calorie Burning

Statistically, running at top speeds will burn the most calories per hour. Running at an 8.5 minute mile rate can burn 679 calories per hour for a smaller person and 940 calories for a larger person. This is compared to cycling at a moderate 12-14 mph pace, which will burn 472 calories per hour for a smaller person and 654 for a larger person. If weight loss is a person’s fitness goal, running on the treadmill is one of the most efficient ways to melt away the pounds.

3.       Consistency, convenience and safety

Some users may dislike the treadmill and deem it as boring, but this consistency and predictability is highly beneficial for a workout. Running outside can be risky as running over random curbs, cracks, holes or errant banana peels can lead to serious injury. Other hazards such as cars and innocent bystanders are also eliminated by running on a stationary treadmill. Treadmills allow for smooth continuous running in the convenience of your home or gym, so users are free to run regardless of weather. Also, it is quite difficult to run around the block with a TV strapped to your head, so alternatively, many treadmills have the option of attaching a screen so you can enjoy your sitcoms while burning some fat.

4.       Customizing and progress checking

Essentially every maker of treadmills, whether they are Precor, Star Trac or Life Fitness, equips their machines with a console. These consoles can control various aspects of the machine, such as speed and incline. Many newer treadmills also come with pre-programmed workout routines for a variety of different fitness goals. Both beginners and seasoned veterans can reap the full benefits of working out on a treadmill. These consoles generally also come with trackers that can determine exactly how far a person has run, how many calories they have burned and even what their heart rate was. This allows users to easily track their progress and follow a goal-oriented routine.

What to look for when buying a treadmill

There are dozens of treadmills on the market, so choosing one can be overwhelming. Here are a few factors to consider.

1.        Brand

The top brands are generally the top brands for a reason. Life Fitness, Precor and Star Trac are some of the most recognized and best names when it comes to treadmills. Choosing a treadmill from one of these brands will generally ensure that you will receive a top quality and durable machine.

2.       Commercial or Residential?

The decision of buying commercial or residential is highly dependent on your budget. If you’re thinking of purchasing a residential unit, your cost will generally be lower but these units are generally less durable than commercial units. When buying a used treadmill, it is suggested to go for a commercial unit, because they are built to run 24/7, there will be no issues in a one or two runner household. Buying a used treadmill generally saves you half off of MSRP.

3.       Make and Model

There are hundreds of different types of models of treadmills out there so it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose one. An easier method would be to figure out what features are most important, such as a touchscreen, different workout routines, incline or decline options, etc. If you’re not sure what you want, feel free to ask the salesperson for their suggestions.

At the end of the day, the best technique to decide which treadmill you want is by taking it for a test run. There are many different options out there, so if you’re looking to find the right path to fitness, feel free to ask one of our Primo Primo Fitness for their treadmill suggestions.

9 Key Tips to Buying a Treadmill

If you’re in the market for a used treadmill, the first question you ask yourself is probably “what to look for when buying a treadmill”? There are dozens and dozens of different treadmill brands in gyms and stores, so we’ve give you some quick tips on how to choose the best model for yourself.

DSC_6624

  1. Figure out what you will be using your treadmill for. Walking, jogging, running or maybe all of them? Different treadmills have different built in programs that cater to certain crowds.
  1. Test out different treadmills at the gym. The best way to ensure that you like a treadmill is to actually use it.
  1. Research entertainment options. Some treadmills have televisions built in with their own channels and programming system. Others have iPod and phone connectivity. Newer model treadmills even come with built in touchscreens.
  1. Set a budget. Home units can range from $100-$500 depending on them brand, model and features. Commercial grade units retail from $5,000-$10,000 but used models can be found for $500-$1,000 if you find the right place.
  1. Pay close attention to the size of the treadmill and if it will fit in your home. The footprint of a treadmill varies greatly and you want to be sure that it will fit comfortably in your home. Also research whether you have the proper electrical configurations for your treadmill since some units require dedicated lines.
  1. Decide on whether you want a commercial grade or retail unit. This varies upon your budget and how often you plan to use your machine. If you are a casual exerciser who is anticipating on using their treadmill around two to three times a week, then a home treadmill would be more than enough. Otherwise, you should opt for a commercial grade treadmill. Commercial grade treadmills are the same models that are found in the gym meaning they are more durable and have better parts. They are usually a few hundred dollars more than retail units but can be found heavily discounted if bought used.
  1. Look up different brands. There are many different brands of treadmills on the market so it is important to do extensive research on each of them. Precor and Life Fitness are two of the leaders in treadmill manufacturing and you can’t go wrong with any of their units.
  1. Consider if you want incline. Incline can make a world of difference between treadmills. If you are a more casual runner then you can afford to buy a treadmill without an incline/decline feature. More experienced fitness fanatics and people who crave variety in their cardio should look for a unit with incline options which can increase intensity and even simulate hiking.
  1. Look at fitness tracking and programs. Most treadmills come with built-in displays that can tell you information such as calories burned, distance run, time of exercise, power output and much more. Some treadmills also come with heart rate monitors built into the handrails. If you don’t enjoy monotonous one speed running, some treadmills also come with programs that can vary your workout.

These are the most crucial factors you should consider when buying a treadmill. Once you’ve figured out what you want in yours, browse our selection of commercial treadmills!

Cybex 550T Treadmill Review

We previously wrote a review on the Cybex 530T treadmill as part of our Black Friday specials and now we are moving on to the next iteration of Cybex treadmills, the Cybex 550T treadmill. Similar to the 530T, these treadmills are also commercial grade and built to endure heavy commercial gym level usage. Unlike other commercial grade treadmills though, the Cybex 550T treadmill is actually quite compact in both height and width. This makes it a great unit for home since it does not take up much floor space. There are many great features to this treadmill so we’ll go through each component.

DSC_6501

Aesthetic:

The compact size of this treadmill makes it look very low and clean, like a sports car you can run on. The reduced size also means that there is a low step-up which is great for new exercisers or people with lower mobility. The key to the Cybex 550T treadmill’s great design is its emphasis on minimalism. There are not a lot of protruding parts or unnecessary bells and whistles cluttering up the design of the treadmill.

Programs:

Just because the 550T is accessible to the rookie exerciser does not mean that it does not come equipped to satisfy even the most experienced of runners. The treadmill comes equipped with a variety of different programs that can be changed on the fly. If you want to raise or lower the intensity of your current workout, you can do so without restarting the entire workout. The console comes programmed with seven different exercise programs.

Console/Display:

The Cybex 550T comes equipped with a split level display that allows users to use what they want and when. The split level display has two different levels. The lower level displays time, speed and incline which is constantly visible. Other information that can be viewed on the console include distance, calories, calories/hour, pace, METs and heart rate.

Other Features:

This treadmill also comes with a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) controller. What this does is basically uses digital feedback for high-speed stability and constant speed control to create a smooth running experience. If you’re worried this will rack up your electricity bill, luckily the treadmill also maxims effectiveness for economical power consumption.

The 550T treadmill has been perfectly designed to optimize a runner’s stride. Its running deck is soft at landing, hard in the middle and rigid at toe-off to imitate the precise body mechanics of a runner. All Cybex machines also come equipped with the Safety Sentry, which can determine if a runner is actually on the treadmill or not and will stop the belt after a pre-selected waiting period to help ensure that members are safe and secure.

Conclusion:

Cybex does it again with another great addition to their treadmill line. You will not be able to find another commercial grade treadmill this compact, durable and effective at this price point. We cannot speak for our competitors but we’re selling this treadmill for $499 which is 90% off MSRP! To learn more about this treadmill, visit the Cybex 550T treadmill page on our website.

Specifications:

The Life Fitness 93T treadmill comes with a 4.0 HP AC motor with a MagnaDrive motor controller that is able to reach speeds of up to 10 miles per hour and a 15% incline. This range of options can satisfy even the most intense fitness fanatics and is able to provide everyone with the workout they want.

All commercial grade Life Fitness treadmills come with the standard running surface size of 20”x60”. This is more than adequate to accommodate users of any shape and size during their workouts. The belt comes pre-lubricated and the wax-coated deck has 8 large Lifespring shock absorbers to reduce stress on the user’s joints which helps to prevent injuries.

Fitness Tracking:

The built in LED console shows users their elapsed time, speed, distance, heart rate, calories, incline and distance climbed so users can easily track their progress. Other information that the console can display is the user’s watts, METs and custom messages meant for motivation.

5 Different Ways to Use a Treadmill

The treadmill is one extremely fundamentally sound machine. It certainly has the easiest learning curve among gym machines and there’s not much you can do wrong. You literally stand on a machine and run in place. While the treadmill is perfect for cardiovascular training and running, some people might wonder if there’s something more. Is there truly a next level for the treadmill?

DSC_5517

We believe there is. You can do much more on a treadmill than straight forward running. Please take not that these are highly advanced moves though. Do not attempt them if you are a novice. You must become one with the treadmill in order to execute some of these atypical treadmill exercises.

  1. Running backwards

Running backwards on a treadmill may look a little silly in the gym, but improving your leg muscles is no joke. Running backwards actually uses different muscles than running forward. Forward running mainly puts pressure on the hamstring and knees while backwards running strengthens your calves, quads and shins. This actually balances out your muscles and increases mobility overall.

You may have also noticed that running backwards is far more difficult than running forwards. This increased difficulty actually helps you burn more calories in a shorter amount of time than straight running. Some estimates even put running backwards as burning five times more calories. You will also strengthen your core and abdominal muscles because you’re forced to stand upright when running backwards.

  1. Running sideways

If running backwards is a little too extreme at the moment, you can always reduce your rotation by 90 degrees and do some side stepping on your treadmill.  Besides being a fun novelty, sideways shuffling works your hips, inner and outer thighs, calves and abs. If it’s too challenging at first, you can hold onto the rails but gradually move away from doing so to improve your posture and form. Switch sides to in order to work your entire body equally.

  1. Run on the treadmill when it isn’t on

If you’re a fan of saving electricity and intense workouts, this is the perfect way to use your treadmill once in a while. Just turn your treadmill off and start running like usual. The friction caused by having to move the belt with your own power will increase the intensity of your workout ten-folds. Feel free to use the handles in order to generate enough force to move the belt.

  1. Use the incline feature to simulate a hike

If your treadmill has an incline feature, this would be a great time to use it. Some treadmills also have consoles that have hikes built in. If not, you can gradually increase the incline of your treadmill over time to simulate hiking. You can also bring your hiking gear along with you and play some nature sounds to get the full experience.

  1. Throw your hands in the air and proceed to not care

Treadmill workouts don’t have to be purely lower body. There are many great ways that you can get your arms involved while using a treadmill. Even just putting your hands above your head can increase your heart rate which in turn burns more calories. It also looks like you’re celebrating your new found mastery of the treadmill.

We hope that these tips can spice up your treadmill usage life a little bit. Want to try out these techniques in the comfort of your own home? Well we sell tons of commercial grade treadmills for wholesale prices!

 

Precor 956i Experience Treadmill Review

The Precor 956i Experience Treadmill is currently the most popular treadmill on the used commercial market right now and for good reason. It is only a few years old and the commercial grade models have held up well due to the durable design by Precor.

DSC_5640

Precor delivers all the features you could hope for in this highly advanced commercial treadmill. Many people avoid the treadmill because of the high impact that they have on the joints, but Precor has definitely taken that into consideration with this iteration of the treadmill. Their patented “Ground Effects” impact control system is designed to cushion the knees, back and joints, which reduces swelling and soreness. There will be significantly less damage on your joints even after miles and miles of running which is great for your long term health. In addition to the Ground Effects impact control system, the Precor 956i Experience treadmill is also equipped with Integrated Footplant Technology. This technology utilizes the 4.0 HP motor to taper the belt speed to your exact movements which adds smoothness to your running experience.

In addition to the advanced running technology in the treadmill, the 956i Experience also comes loaded with a wide variety of entertainment options. Similar to many of the newer models of Precor cardio machines, this treadmill comes with the Integrated Cardio Theater design. This gives you a personal viewing screen and a high tech look to your workout area. The 956i comes with 26 separate programs which you can change on the fly. The ability to switch programs on the go keeps your workouts intense and engaging. The Precor Tap Control also helps you navigate these programs easily and intuitively. In terms of fitness tracking, the Precor 956i Experience treadmill comes with heart-rate sensors in the hand grips which allows for important vital data to be tracked. This treadmill’s speed ranges from .5 MPH to 16 MPH so it is effective for anyone in any fitness level. There is also a maximum incline of 15% which can add extra intensity to your run.

If you are looking for one of the higher end top commercial grade treadmills, there is no better option than the Precor 956i Experience. Luckily, this treadmill has been slashed to an affordable price in our fitness sale.

Cybex 530T Treadmill Review

Today we will be reviewing our biggest Black Friday special, the Cybex 530T treadmill. Not only is this treadmill extremely affordable for a commercial grade treadmill, more so with our discount pricing, but it also has a plethora of great features and high durability.

DSC_1401

The Cybex 530T treadmill is one of the easiest treadmills to use. It has a convenient “Quick Start” key that lets the user enter the manual program with a single touch. It also uses a live keyboard which allows the user to change the program or any setting without starting over, which can help the user create a dynamic workout without interruptions. The treadmill comes preloaded with a variety of great workout programs including quick start, manual, 5k run, 9 holes, heart rate control, weight loss and cardio programs which will keep the user engaged and interested. There is also a heartrate monitor built into the contact grips for further fitness tracking.

Another great feature, usually reserved for expensive higher end treadmills, is the decline/incline elevation feature. You can easily increase the intensity of your workout by using the incline, or decrease it by using the decline feature.

This treadmill also has an effective suspension system that absorbs the impact of landing and provides a stable running base for maximum efficiency. There is also an option to attach a television if you want to multi-task and watch your favorite shows while burning some calories.

Cybex has also implemented a safety system into its 530T treadmill. It is known as “Safe Sentry” and it can determine whether you are at the treadmill or not. After a certain period of inactivity (determined by the user), the belt will stop in order to keep users safe.

This is easily one of the best commercial grade treadmills that you’ll find for such a bargain price. These machines are extremely durable and will last you for life. If you wish to purchase one or look at more pictures, visit the Cybex 530T Treadmill page!

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.

Best Fitness Equipment for Basketball Training

With basketball season just around the corner, you may be itching to dust off your kicks and get some shots up. If the offseason has made you rusty or you just want to improve your game, you might be wondering what type of workouts you should be doing. In addition to that, you might be wondering what equipment will help you become the greatest baller on the court.

Leg Press

Even more so than other sports, your legs may be your most important weapon when on the hardwood. Your legs need to be strong for constant back and forth running and sharp change of directions. A leg press primarily targets your thighs and glutes which are also especially important in improving your vertical leap, a vital aspect of the game. Improving your leg strength is also part of a great jumpshot. This may be counter intuitive because it appears as if the arm is primarily used for jump shooting, but the legs provide the lift needed in order to generate the proper arc and distance.

Rowing Machine

Also important in improving balance and vertical leap is core strength.Without a strong core, you won’t be able to generate enough force to get off the ground explosively. Balance is also a crucial part of the game and being able to move how you want to move without being unstable is essential to being great. A strong core will help both your leaping abilities and balance. A rowing machine also works your arms and back, not to mention it also serves as a cardio machine to improve your conditioning.

Assisted Chin Dip Machine

Upper body strength is also extremely important when playing basketball both on the offensive and defensive ends. Having strength in the arms and chest does wonders for overpowering opponents in the low post or being able to body up and defend them. The assisted chin dip machine is great because it works the shoulders, back and biceps. It uses your own body weight in the workout which is also a nice bonus.

Treadmill

Basketball is quite a long game at 48 minutes and when up against fierce competition, you’ll expend energy extremely quickly. This is why it is important to build endurance and stamina in order to perform at the highest level at all times. The best way is to simulate the movement that you’ll be doing most often on the court, which is running.

These are just a few of the machines that can accomplish your work out goals to become a future YMCA recreational league legend.

5 Benefits of Treadmillls

Treadmills are pretty awesome. They allow you to run without worrying about the weather, you don’t have to be afraid of stepping on any rocks, curbs or cracks in the sidewalk that may break your mother’s back.

Life Fitness Integrity Treadmill Review

97T_Treadmill_Hero

The Life Fitness Integrity treadmill is part of the new line of stylish and functional fitness equipment from the Life Fitness brand. One of the main differences is that these treadmills have a higher top speed and decline of the previous incarnation of Life Fitness treadmills.

Another strength of the Life Fitness Integrity Treadmill is its entertainment abilities. Many exercisers use music to keep themselves pumped and motivated  and this treadmill perfectly integrates that. It has built in iPod compatibility and integrated iPod/TV controls. The TV controls only work if you have an option television attached to the unit.

Also in the console are easy to read LED lights that make functionality very simple and data easy to read. Some of the data measured is speed, incline, heart rate, elapsed time, time in target heart rate zone, calories and much more. Built into the console are 28 different workouts. There are also workouts included that adjust incline level in order to keep users in their optimal target heart rate zone.

These are only some of the few amazing features in the Life Fitness Integrity Treadmill.

Best Treadmill for the Price – Life Fitness 95Ti

A high quality yet affordable used treadmill is hard to find. Everyone loves saving money but never at the cost of quality and durability. A treadmill takes a ton of abuse over its lifetime what with a human constantly running on top of it at high speeds delivering a ton of impact to its frame. There’s no doubt then that when looking for a treadmill, you want to look for durability. This is why it is highly suggested that instead of buying a cheap home treadmill from your local retail store, you should opt for a used commercial treadmill for its unmatched durability. These machines are designed to run 24 hours a day in a gym so they’ll essentially last a decade or more with home usage.

In the console is something called the Ergo-bar, aka the activity zone, which places all your workout data where you probably want it, in your face.

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!

How to buy a used treadmill – Don’t dread the tread(mill)

Don’t dread the tread(mill)

Ask someone to name a piece of gym equipment and they’ll probably name the treadmill. There is no modern image of fitness more tired and true than a person running in the gym on a treadmill. The first consumer treadmill designed for home use was developed in the late 1960s and ever since then, the treadmill has become a staple of American fitness.

Modern gyms are beginning to look like the set of Star Trek, with touchscreens, LCD TVs and alien looking machines abundant; but the treadmill, minus a few bells and whistles added to the consoles, has stayed fundamentally the same. This is because the treadmill simply gets the job done in a variety of ways. The best way to buy an affordable used treadmill, that will last, is to buy one from a used gym equipment supplier, such as Primo Fitness!

Benefits of a treadmill:

1.       Ease of Use

First, the treadmill is extremely simple to use. People instinctively know how to walk and run, so there is no learning curve required to use the machine. Treadmills may differ cosmetically and internally, but once a person has used one, they can use them all. They also do not require adjustments to the machine itself for different people. Once someone hops off, someone else can hop on and immediately begin their workout. The simplicity is what draws many to the treadmill.

2.       Calorie Burning

Statistically, running at top speeds will burn the most calories per hour. Running at an 8.5 minute mile rate can burn 679 calories per hour for a smaller person and 940 calories for a larger person. This is compared to cycling at a moderate 12-14 mph pace, which will burn 472 calories per hour for a smaller person and 654 for a larger person. If weight loss is a person’s fitness goal, running on the treadmill is one of the most efficient ways to melt away the pounds.

3.       Consistency, convenience and safety

Some users may dislike the treadmill and deem it as boring, but this consistency and predictability is highly beneficial for a workout. Running outside can be risky as running over random curbs, cracks, holes or errant banana peels can lead to serious injury. Other hazards such as cars and innocent bystanders are also eliminated by running on a stationary treadmill. Treadmills allow for smooth continuous running in the convenience of your home or gym, so users are free to run regardless of weather. Also, it is quite difficult to run around the block with a TV strapped to your head, so alternatively, many treadmills have the option of attaching a screen so you can enjoy your sitcoms while burning some fat.

4.       Customizing and progress checking

Essentially every maker of treadmills, whether they are Precor, Star Trac or Life Fitness, equips their machines with a console. These consoles can control various aspects of the machine, such as speed and incline. Many newer treadmills also come with pre-programmed workout routines for a variety of different fitness goals. Both beginners and seasoned veterans can reap the full benefits of working out on a treadmill. These consoles generally also come with trackers that can determine exactly how far a person has run, how many calories they have burned and even what their heart rate was. This allows users to easily track their progress and follow a goal-oriented routine.

What to look for when buying a treadmill

There are dozens of treadmills on the market, so choosing one can be overwhelming. Here are a few factors to consider.

1.        Brand

The top brands are generally the top brands for a reason. Life Fitness, Precor and Star Trac are some of the most recognized and best names when it comes to treadmills. Choosing a treadmill from one of these brands will generally ensure that you will receive a top quality and durable machine.

2.       Commercial or Residential?

The decision of buying commercial or residential is highly dependent on your budget. If you’re thinking of purchasing a residential unit, your cost will generally be lower but these units are generally less durable than commercial units. When buying a used treadmill, it is suggested to go for a commercial unit, because they are built to run 24/7, there will be no issues in a one or two runner household. Buying a used treadmill generally saves you half off of MSRP.

3.       Make and Model

There are hundreds of different types of models of treadmills out there so it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose one. An easier method would be to figure out what features are most important, such as a touchscreen, different workout routines, incline or decline options, etc. If you’re not sure what you want, feel free to ask the salesperson for their suggestions.

At the end of the day, the best technique to decide which treadmill you want is by taking it for a test run. There are many different options out there, so if you’re looking to find the right path to fitness, feel free to ask one of our Primo Fitness Equipment Professional for their treadmill suggestions.
