If you’re looking for a great way to change up your workout, climb aboard a rowing machine.
Rowing machines are a low-impact exercise that provide a great way to burn lots of calories and build muscle strength.
Simulating the motion of rowing on a boat, a rowing machine is a fun, functional exercise with numerous benefits.
You’ll get a great cardio workout with a rowing machine and burn up to 125 calories in just 15-20 minutes.
There aren’t many exercises that work as many muscle groups as rowing. A rowing machine works a person’s arms, back, shoulders, abs, legs and hips.
Row forward or backward and change up your strokes at different points of the workout.
Rowing machines are fun and effective for people of all ages, but many seniors find them particularly effective because they place little or no strain on the back and joints.
One of the most popular rowing machines available is the LifeCore Fitness R100 Rower (MSRP $1,599.00, AtHomeFitness.com Sale Price $1,299). It’s a Fit Prof Best Buy winner.
It includes a Large LCD “Blue Backlit” Computer Display, 15 Challenging Preset Programs, Adjustable Cooling Air Vent and a Large Ergonomically Designed Seat for Added Comfort.
Whether you go for long rowing sessions, or perform interval training, top-of-the-line rowing machines such as the LifeCore Fitness R100 Rower are surprisingly smooth operators that are easy on the joints and deliver a great workout.
If you take the time to get the proper form down, the rowing machine can help take you to wherever your fitness goals are.

New Year’s resolution recovery plan: five tips to get you back on track

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

New Year’s resolutions sound so good in theory. People say on Jan. 1 each year that they will strive to do things like get more fit, eat healthier and be a better person.
Statistic show that somewhere around two-thirds of Americans make a New Year’s resolution, but unfortunately only somewhere between 5-20 percent of people actually keep them.
And most of the people who fail do so within the first two weeks of the year.
With today being Jan. 15, that means a whole lot of people have already fallen short of their resolution for 2015. Have you come up short up already?
Don’t give up! Give it a another chance. Here are five tips to get back on track to reach your 2015 New Year’s Resolution:
1. Re-evaluate your resolution – Did you set a goal that was too tough to reach, such as getting to the gym five days a week? Maybe scale it back to three days a week – that’s a lot better than quitting altogether.
2. Get tougher – Maybe you’ve already slipped up on your goal because your willpower wasn’t strong enough. Write your goal down on a piece of paper and hang it up somewhere where you’ll see it all the time to remind you. You are important and deserve the best, so make your resolution a top priority.
3. Use the buddy system – Some people find it much easier to exercise with a partner, or as part of a fitness class or group.
4. Plan out meals – If it seems hopeless to eat right, consider planning out meals beforehand.
Don’t expect to eat healthy if you wait until the last minute to make breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
Get a gameplan ahead of time and go to the grocery store with a smart list.
5. Start today – Quit putting your goals off, start today. Every little positive thing you do will add up to big results.
If you have a few slip-ups along the way don’t beat yourself up over it. Being a more fit person is a marathon, not a sprint.

Five tips to help keep your 2015 New Year’s Resolution

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

More than half the people in the U.S. have made some type of New Year’s Resolution for 2015.
Chances are people reading this article have done so and if they haven’t then a close relative or friend has.
Statistics have found that approximately two-thirds of the people in our country make a New Year’s Resolution. A huge number of those goals involve trying to get more fit and/or making changes for the better in regards to their health.
Unfortunately, statistics also demonstrate that less than 20 percent of people will actually keep their resolutions. Some studies have found as few as 5 percent follow through.
Fear not, though, there are ways to greatly improve your odds of following through on your New Year’s resolution. Here are five tips to help you do that:
1. Set an attainable resolution – Trying to look like a super model is probably not an attainable goal, but you can vow to work out 3-4 times a week and-or maybe even lose 10-20 pounds.
Set goals that are feasible.
Be open to adjusting your resolution some if it’s not quite working out – that’s a lot better than quitting altogether.
2. Stick with it at least two weeks – Most resolutions are lost before January is even a few weeks old. The most crucial time to keeping a resolution is the first two weeks, so be tough on yourself the first two weeks even if it’s really hard. If you can get through those two weeks you’re obviously still not home free, but it will be a lot easier.
3. Write it down – Create a gameplan to keep your resolution. Write down ideas on how you’ll be able to follow through and you can write down some of the hurdles you expect will present themselves. If you’ve set fitness goals, keeping a daily workout log will be a huge help.
4. Get a little help – If you are trying to take on a really major resolution that‘s failed in the past, like quitting smoking or drinking, then this time seek professional assistance. If you’ve failed repeatedly in weight loss or other fitness goals, then maybe working with a dietician or trainer will help get you over the hump.
Ask family and/or friends to help you. Maybe that will mean one of them will become a workout super-buddy. If you’ve set a goal to be a more positive person, then you can ask someone close to you to gently remind you when you’re not (ie: you start being a “Negative Nellie” again).
5. Reward yourself – Setting a big resolution is not easy, so if you’re able to keep it then reward yourself at various steps along the way. Tell yourself if after two months you’re still on track, you’ll buy an outfit or new workout clothes. Tell yourself early on if you can get through the whole year keeping that resolution, you’ll do something really special – like take a vacation somewhere warm to show off that newly chiseled physique.

Santa’s dream list: At Home Fitness Best Buy Awards $4,500 and up

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Screen shot 2014-12-16 at 12.52.28 PM

It takes a lot of physical conditioning for Santa Claus to keep up the rigorous schedule that he has for decades — and to work off the amount of milk and cookies he consumes while making his rounds.
At Home Fitness has received some insight into how St. Nicholas is able to do this. We found the Santa Claus fitness dream list he wants for himself and Mrs. Claus this Chirstmas.
Without further adieu, presenting the At Home Fitness #1 rated Best Buy Awards for equipment priced at $4,500 and above:
Landice L8 Executive Trainer Treadmill (MSRP $5,895 / AHF price in Arizona $5,305) — The Landice L8 Executive Trainer contains all of the extra features required for an exceptional workout. With this treadmill, you can enjoy six different fitness levels, a numeric keypad, and personal data and statistics storage for five family members.
The Landice L8 Executive Trainer is the top of the line model offered in the L8 series. This model has all of the extras that you might want to have included in your treadmill. The all new Landice Treadmills have a completely redesigned upper console reading rack which includes high quality built in speakers, a 3 speed fan and IPod/MP3 compatible cables. As might be expected with a top-of-the-line treadmill, this model allows you to enjoy a great workout while being built to last a lifetime.
The Landice L8 Executive Trainer Treadmill is made with the latest technology, which means it provides the best workout while reducing the impact on your joints and knees. In addition, it is made to fit and look nice in your home gym while still offering you with the kind of power you need. The four horsepower continuous-duty drive motor allows you to push your workout to the next level without worrying about overheating the machine.
Since Landice only manufactures treadmills, you can count on the equipment incorporating the latest technology and always being cutting edge. The machines are so cutting edge, in fact, that Landice has been ranked No. 1 for the last seven years in a row by consumer rating industries.
Octane Fitness Q47xi Elliptical (MSRP $5,099 / AHF price $4,599) — The Octane Fitness Q47xi Elliptical delivers health club quality form, function and results to your home gym. These premium ellipticals are the most ergonomically advanced and technologically superior elliptical machines available. Designed to help you commit to and maintain a fitter lifestyle, they are built to last and perform exceptionally.
The Q47 features a uperior, high polished display screen
SmartLink, Bluetooth® hookups, 51 workout programs with SmartLink, and a Multi-color SmartLight feedback center that simultaneously displays key workout information. It has 3 placement options for a tablet, wireless heart rate with a FREE Polar® heart rate strap and Easily adjustable stride.
This original Octane Fitness innovation automatically changes the stride length to simulate walking, jogging and running. It replicates what you do outside without even thinking about it:
Vectra Fitness VX-48 Home Gym (MSRP $11,499, AHF sale price $10,999) — The VX-48 is the top of the Vectra Fitness line, offering the most comprehensive assortment of features and exercises available in a multigym.
For the family that likes to work out together or light-commercial applications with the potential of multiple users, the VX-48 (or the 3-stack VX-38) is the most popular multigym choice. Vectra machines are designed to be so smooth and easy to adjust that several people can easily workout simultaneously. The user is able to move through their routine quickly and efficiently, freeing up a space for the next person. Also, each exercise station on the machine is self contained, with it’s own dedicated weight-stack, arranged around the unit so that awkward face to face and embarrassing shoulder to shoulder contact between users is avoided.
The VX-48 provides a complete full body workout. However, if space limitation is a factor, consider using the VX-11 in conjunction with the VX-38. This combination provides precisely the same exercises as the VX-48, with greater configuration flexibility in room layout.
AVT 6.0 Vibration Machine by 3G Cardio (MSRP $4,999 / AHF Sale Price: $4,499) — The award winning 3G Cardio AVT 6.0 Vibration Machine brings the quality of the health club into the privacy of your own home. The state-of-the-art electronic display allows you to access a wide variety of stretching, strengthening, and massage programs, and because of the generously oversized vibration platform, you will enjoy both standing and lying exercises without feeling restricted or crowded.
At a retail price of $4,999 and a weight of 267 pounds, the 3G Cardio AVT™ 6.0 Vibration Machine incredibly has the same sized workout platform (34×28) to stand on as a popular $12,000 vibration machine.
When it comes to vibration machines, the actual physical weight of a machine is a good indicator of just how good a unit is and the 3G model literally stacks up with just about any competitor.
The AVT 6.0 machine has a base that measures 45x36x28 and matches any other model with a Hertz capacity of up to 50 and an amplitude that can be be adjusted from 1-4 mm. It can be purchased in black or silver.
Vibration training machines create instability, which the body senses and reflexively contracts muscle tissue involuntarily to stabilize and react to the stimuli.
The result is all three types of skeletal muscles are instantaneously called into service because of the near-immediate level of fatigue. No longer is there a “progression of muscle fatigue” as in normal
strength training.
AVT, also known as Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV or WBVT), can work up to 95 percent of the muscle fibers, compared to as little as 20 percent with standard equipment.
