  1. When Is It Time to Buy a New Treadmill?

    Although there may not be something substantially wrong with your draconian treadmill, it still may be time to buy a new treadmill. After extensive use and hundreds of thousands of miles, treadmill motor quality can disintegrate, electronics become stale, treadmill running belts become to thin to protect our joints from the impact of running, and other flaws such as mechanical failures occur regularly. Those who spend the time, money and energy to fix these costly breakdowns are missing the boat. They are jumping over dollars to same quarters. Once your treadmill becomes close to inoperable, your best bet is to scrap it and buy a new treadmill. Running is such an important part of so many of our lives that we should treat ourselves to a gym quality elliptical when we run.

  2. Running Outside in the Summer

    Hope all of you fitness heads are having a blast this summer. Outdoor exercise in the summer is therapeutic for many people with joint pain and body aches. However, running outside underneath the intense rays of the summer sun, can be difficult from June through August due to temperatures that can rise to 100 degrees across the country. From Miami, Florida, to Los Angeles, California, people are beaten and battered from head to toe as the try to endure and embrace the ridiculously high temperature. Well, for those who are hyper-sensitive to the sun, and those that are older and more prone to detrimental affects of the sun, using gym equipment indoors may be a safer and more effective form of exercise. Gym quality treadmills, elliptical training machines and home gyms are very user friendly and effective means for exercising.

  3. Quick Tips For Buying Home Gym Equipment

    One of the first thing we think about every morning when we wake up is how we look and how we could exercise more and eat better. The last thing any of us want to do is spend a lot of money on home fitness equipment. However, it is really difficult to find home fitness equipment that is going to last for a long time, for a real bargain. For example, there are over 100 different elliptical cross-trainers on the market today for less than $1000.00. With that said, out of those 100 or so pieces, the vast majority will be junk. Therefore, never value the price over the quality of the equipment. It doesn't matter if you get an elliptical, if you buy one that you do not use or like. When looking at home fitness equipment, try to focus on reputable name brand equipment such as Precor, Life Fitness, Star Trac, Cybex and stay away from low end fitness equipment seen on infomercials and local sporting good stores.
