The season for stuffing ourselves with turkey and mince pies will soon be at an end for another year. As you look down at your waistline you may decide enough is enough and start the anual hunt for that magical piece of at home exercise equipment that will help you lose that excess weight.
Many will be seduced by the latest exercise gadget that happens to be out at the moment that promises fast results with little work but sadly they rarely work.
Better would be to take a look at my Top 3 pieces of exercise equipment that I believe will work for you if you’re prepared to put in a little bit of work and use them regularly.
The Step360 takes traditional step to the next level. Circular in shape like a pair of donuts stacked one on top of the other the Step 360 is a pair of inflatable tubes with a platform on top. This simple device is more challenging than a normal step because it’s unstable and wobbles when you step up and down. This instability not only makes your workout more challenging but also a lot more fun.
Unlike other pieces of exercise equipment on the market today it’s not a gimmick it really works. I’ve had one for over for weeks now and love it. You get a great cardio workout and if you attach the supplied exercise band a fairly reasonable strength training workout as well.
Take a look at my Step360 Videos page for more information.
Although more for the seasoned and fairly fit exercisers the TRX Suspension System is a great addition to anyone wanting to get more from there body-weight exercises.
The TRX is basically a pair of elasticated straps that can be attached to a doorway. Using the straps you can extend and make more challenging a variety (Over 300) body-weight exercises. The TRX is lightweight, easy to use and will introduce not only challenge but also fun to your existing workout.
Similair to the TRX it’s a suspension body weight trainer that comes complete with straps, door attachment and carabineers. The Protege has one big advantage over the TRX and that’s price it comes in a only $39.99!
The Kettleworx system uses a KettleBell and a series of great workout DVD’s to give you a fantastic workout. Because you combine both fat burning cardio and strength training in a single short workout you can get great results in a much shorter time than cardio only training.
This system isn’t for those that don’t want to work hard as it’s very challenging and will get you hot and sweaty. It’s major advantage is its simplicity and the speed you can get results if you use it regularly.
The three pieces of exercise equipment above aren’t the sexiest pieces of equipment on the market (although The Step360 is close) but they’re simple, well made and will without a doubt help you in your fat loss goals.
Sadly I think people will be seduced by the new and shiny gadgets that claim to do all the work for you and the equipment that really works will be ignored.
Still I’ve done my duty the choice is as always yours
