ShopSmartmag.org recently tested and ranked the top in-home gym equipment. This is helpful because itís nice to have some guidance when making such a serious investment.
Best performing treadmills they tested were:
-The NordicTrack C900 (folding) for runners. Itís priced around $1000 and was considered reliable with good incline abilities and easy to read panels with ease of operation.
-Lifefitness F3Track (folding) at $3000 ranked at the top for walkers due to its 55-inch long deck. You can transfer your information with its USB drive to your computer.
Best performing elliptical machines shown were:
-Octane Fitness Q35C priced around $2000. It tested with a smooth ride, but doesnít have a heart-rate control program, so it wonít automatically adjust resistance based on your heart rate. Other recommended elliptical with a heart-rate program were
-The Diamondback 1260Ef, $2000
-The LifeFitness Q37ci retailing at $3500.
If cost is prohibiting you from creating in home workout opportunities, consider buying pre-owned equipment. I recommend buying from a pre-owned sports store that may offer extended warranties for your purchase. They also sell discounted weights, tubes, yoga equipment, sporting equipment, and weight lifting universal equipment.
