Celebrate the New Year With a New Healthier Body

Best Cyber Monday Sales on Treadmills, Ellipticals, Exercise Bikes and Fitness Equipment

I know that we have all been told that the economy is doing great and that we all have “extra” money for Christmas this year. However the honest truth is… the economy is flat and retailers and manufacturers are nervous this year. Many are producing less inventory and the inventory that they do have they want to sell at a deep discount and capture sales while they can.

Black Friday sales are over – Please come back next year.
Thank you!!

Whether you want to admit it or not, you are getting older. We all are. While we may still feel like we are in our 40’s we’re reaching 50, 60, 70 or even older and as we do get older we need to remember that exercise does not stop at 50.                                                                                       Benefits of xercise for seniors

In order for us to live a long and healthier life we need to keep active but we also need to remember that we need to adjust our exercise routines to accommodate changes in our body.

This past summer I turned 64 and although I still feel like I’m in my late 20’s with my outlook on life, my body does occasionally speak back and reminds me to slow down a bit. It also reminds me that whenever I start a new exercise program I need to take it slow and build up over the weeks.

But for many senior citizens, the thought of beginning a new exercise regimen can seem daunting. You may feel tired, depressed – or anxious about moving your body when your mobility could have been compromised over the years.

But what you need to understand is that exercise has the ability to eliminate those issues – all of them! In the very beginning, it might wear you out a bit, but that’s only because people tend to overdo it.

Take it slow and merge into more movement and your energy levels will soar, not diminish. As for depression, well exercise is known to release feel good hormones known as endorphins.

You’ll start to feel better, and the chance to exercise could mean enhancing your social activity (if you want it to). Then there’s anxiety about mobility. You don’t want to start off doing back handstands, but you moving around more and strengthening the core of your body will help, not hurt, your mobility.

Let’s look at some more of the main benefits of exercise as a senior, and get a little more in depth about them so that you can embrace the idea of developing a fitness routine in your golden years.

The ProForm Hybrid Trainer Pro is a unique dual purpose fitness machine that combines the non-impact muscle building and toning capabilities that a recumbent bike give you with the cardiovascular benefits of an elliptical machine.                                                                                                                                                                    ProForm Hybrid Trainer Pro

However, the Hybrid Trainer Pro does not stop there, what sets this hybrid trainer apart from others is that it is  iFit compatible which means fitness boredom is a thing of the past.

By now you are probably familiar with iFit technology but if you are not here is just a quick glimpse into how this technology can not only expand your workouts but can make your workouts enjoyable by taking your workout out of your small fitness space and putting the world at your fingertips.

With iFit you can feel what it would be like to bike routes from all over the world as your trainer will automatically be adjusted to fit your route. With this technology you can also track your fitness progression and there will be an almost unlimited workout library for you to choose from.

Each day a new adventure and a new workout – how sweet is that?

Now while this trainer is iFit compatible the wireless iFit module is sold separately. However it is priced so incredibly low that there is no reason why you should not take advantage of what it can do. Why look at a workout graph or two color console when you can view cities of the world?

This hybrid trainer also comes with a removable tablet holder so you can keep your tablet with you and stay connected with friends or keep up with the latest news or gossip.

This fitness machines comes with 20 workout apps so even if you decided not to go with iFit (and I am not sure why you wouldn’t) you still have a good range of workouts to keep your body going in the right direction.

Whats nice is that there is a button for elliptical workouts and one for recumbent workouts so you don’t have to scroll through more than you need to.

It is iPod and MP3 player compatible so you can listen to your favorite music. The 2″ speakers have a nice sound quality but if you are use to listening to your music LOUD then you may want to use your earphones.

There are also 20 resistance levels so that you can go from beginner to intermediate and anywhere in between.
