    There are all sorts of things to think about when trying to select the right exercise equipment to use. With the multitude of arguments claiming one workout plan is more effective than the next, individuals such as myself need to determine what specific areas we have to focus on the most. Personally, I have to consider my foot. I have a Morton’s Neuroma in my left foot. It’s a swelling, tumor-like, of a nerve between my second-to-last toe and my middle toe, and when I bend my foot back and forth, it irritates the Neuroma, and causes great pain. If you have one, you know what I mean. It’s like my toes are broken. I have special shoes with special lifts to separate my toes. My shoes don’t bend as easily as other people’s workout shoes, but they still do bend and it’s best to keep my foot flat. I’m finding this is going to make a difference in my choice of fitness equipment. As much as I like the elliptical machines at the gy

    Years ago, after having my first child, I bought a rowing machine and woke up early every morning, hoping out of bed and straight onto the rower. I needed to lose weight and tone up, but oddly what I found I liked best about rowing is that Zen like state you get from the motions, which is unlike any other exercise machine.

But I also could imagine myself rowing through my day, my path in life—waking my baby, making breakfast, reading him books, playing This-Little-Piggy with his toes, even changing his diapers. This was my peaceful time alone when I could imagine the perfect day. Then when things went astray, I was okay. I

    Some of us exercise to lose weight, some for the good energy it brings, some to tone up after childbirth, some for medical reasons like heart problems and diabetes, some to become stronger, build muscles, impress ourselves and other, some for a combination of any of these reasons, or other reasons I haven’t mentioned. I want to tone up, but I also need to strengthen my stomach muscles so my back doesn’t keep going out. They say my bad back is because of weak core muscles. But the problem is that I have to be very careful what kind of equipment I can use. The weight machines need to be adjusted each time I use them at the gym, and I need to understand what each does, and how best to do reps, etc. I’m always embarrassed when I have to take the pin out, and leave it out. What I’m really looking for is a multi-station home gym that does more than one th

    Do you want to lose weight fast? Would you like to know the exercise routines that burn the most calories? If your answer is yes, then you have taken the first step towards getting healthy. Those who do not understand the consequences of their obesity and unhealthiness, have psychological hurdles they must leap over, in order to even find the path towards weight loss and muscle development.
