Tools to make Exercising

Simple, Fun and to get you in Shape

Importance of  Walking

Use a pedometer to improve your cardiovascular health, maintain your weight, and to promote weight loss. The average person’s stride length is approximately 2.5 feet long. That means it takes just over 2,000 steps to walk one mile. 5,000 to 8,000 steps a day are suggested for maintaining good cardiovascular health. Try 10,000 steps for weight loss! (10,000 steps is close to 5 miles)

Kettlebell

The benefits of kettlebell training are endless and are proving to far outshine the conventional dumbbells and fancy machines found inside gyms and health clubs. This all-around tool can actually replace almost every piece of equipment you have to give you an all-in-one workout of a lifetime, combining both strength and cardio aspects.

Jumprope

Jumping rope is a nearly perfect exercise–maybe the most effective way to burn off the extra calories. However most jump ropes are very imperfect. Former Olympic wrestler Buddy Lee made the Aero Speed length-adjustable and added swivel bearing for smooth spins.

They are used worldwide by Olympic athletes, cardiac rehab patients and every caliber of rower in between. Rowing provides superb total-body cardiovascular conditioning in a smooth impact free exercise

Recumbent Bikes

Recumbent bike posture is considered by some to be a more comfortable position than an upright bike because the posture is more of a chair-life, bucket seat. It provides good back support, while promoting more efficient blood flow throughout the body.
