Choosing the Right Fitness Equipment

Orbus Leisure have a great range of home fitness equipment, but if you are unsure about which piece of aerobic apparatus is right for you read out quick guide:

Elliptical Cross Trainers

These are low impact machines which are suitable for all abilities. They place less stress and strain on your joints and workout the whole body, improving cardio vascular fitness and stamina over time. An elliptical cross trainer allows you to burn muscle and shed weight faster than other pieces of gym equipment. For this reason they are incredibly popular.

Exercise Bikes

Cycling is a great cardio exercise and if you want to tone your lower body then an exercise bike is ideal. There are two main types of exercise bike; upright and recumbent. An upright closely resembles a traditional bicycle whereas a recumbent has the pedals positioned in front of the user.  Like a cross trainer, an exercise bike offers a low impact workout.

Treadmills (Running Machines)

A treadmill has long been one of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment, both for home use and in a commercial gym setting. The user can use the treadmill to walk, jog, run and sprint so you can train whatever the weather. If space is tight opt for a folding treadmill.

Rowing Machines

Rowing machines offer a challenging yet rewarding workout. The user will exercise the legs, torso, abs, arms and back and over time will improve suppleness and posture. Because the motion is rhythmical and flowing the exercise is low impact, reducing stress on your joints.

We hope this brief overview helps you to decide which piece of gym equipment is right for you. However, if you are still unsure just give us a call – we are the experts in home fitness and our friendly advisors will be able to help you choose the product that is right for you.
