We are always pleased to support such great programs such as the healthy food guide which encourages us to keep improving our well being.

Home fitness equipment survey results

Home Fitness Equipment tested

Tests of 40 home exercise equipment machines

According to the survey carried out below by consumer, on home fitness equipment,  we at fit2run hit the mark by carrying all of the equipment mentioned and used widely in the market.

“Thinking about cancelling that gym membership and  getting your own  equipment /  working out at home? You’re not alone. Industry analysts say that gym memberships peaked at 42.7 million in 2006, have slipped slightly since, and are expected by some to decline further in these recessionary times. But sales of home exercise equipment, including treadmills, elliptical exercisers and stationary bikes, have continued to grow in recent years.

We trotted, plodded, and pedaled on 40 machines including treadmills, elliptical exercisers, and stationary bikes, testing for exercise range, ergonomics, construction, safety, and more.

“The top one is the one you enjoy because if you enjoy it, you’ll use it more frequently,” says Christina A. Geithner, a professor of exercise science at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash.

That’s helpful information, considering that 37 percent of Consumer Reports subscribers used their home exercise equipment less frequently than they expected, according to a survey in 2007 by the Consumer Reports National Research Center.

Treadmills are the most popular, commanding about 55 percent of the home fitness equipment market. Running is the gold standard for cardiorespiratory fitness, but elliptical exercisers and stationary bikes might help strengthen your legs, hips, and glutes more than running because you can ramp up the resistance to work your muscles harder.

A workout on an elliptical exerciser is a good choice for those with joint problems or extra weight. Those machines can also help you improve balance. And they have one advantage that most treadmills don’t offer: the ability to work out in reverse, which stimulates the muscles differently, Geithner says.

There are two kinds of stationary bikes. The traditional upright type resembles a regular bicycle; a recumbent bike has back support. They provide similar workouts, though Geithner says an upright might work your glutes better because you can fully extend your hips. Because body weight is supported, both types are options for people who have difficulty with balance or have lower-limb injuries. A recumbent might be more comfortable for those with back problems.”

EXERCISE BIKES – NEW IN OUR STOCK TODAY

We have just added some new EXERCISE BIKES to our stock for rental, hire or purchasing.

Exercise bikes remain one of the best products for  rental equipment. We at fit2run are very particular about the quality of our exercycles.

First and foremost we recognise the importance of making sure the exercycles are easy to use, adjustable, comfortable and particularly well balanced. There is nothing worse than getting on and off a bike and finding that it is unstable!

As  fitness equipment experts we know what people need when it comes to  exercise bikes and what to suggest that will meet your needs.

 

We are alway very happy to have a good chat to our customers and this is so important when it comes to making sure you are going to get what is the right piece of fitness equipment for your needs and for your safety.

This is particularly important if you are using something like an exercise bike after some sort of injury or surgery. We assist many people who are looking at knee replacements and post operative recovery.

If you are interested to talk a little more with us feel free to call us any time  and we will talk you through the different options for rent or sale.
