My Favorite Cardio Workout Equipment
With my years in the fitness industry, I have a chance to see most, if not all, of the innovations in cardio-training equipment. In fact, every year I make the trek from Cincinnati to Chicago's Club Industry Exposition for Health and Fitness. It's the trade show of all trade shows for fitness equipment and the latest changes and fads in the fitness industry. You name it..... and it's there.
Anyway, some of the equipment that I feel is best are first, the Woodway line of treadmills. Bar none, the best treadmills that money can buy. They're made to last. ...and last. The running decks are remarkable and their bells and whistles provide the way to the next level.
In the area of elliptical trainers, I like the LifeFitness models. Any of theirs will do, but I have been using the 91Xi model and have really taken a liking to it. They're great if you need a day of low impact or, for that matter, no impact training. especially if your legs are still sore or tight from previous workout sessions. A great way to incorporate cross training into your training sessions,too.
For a real change of pace,take a go on the SciFit U.B.E. That's an Upper Body Ergometer. Your arms will feel blasted at the end of a legitimate training session on this....and so will your heart! What a change of pace this is. If you've never used one, give it a try. It is geared to take you to The Next Level. And it will deliver. It's also a great training tool for one who has had an ankle, knee, hip or any other lower body injury.... including the dreaded plantar fasciitis.
