MILLERSBURG, Ohio — The West Holmes (Ohio) High School athletic program has stumbled onto a training method that’s used by an incredible cross-section worldwide, from elite athletes and celebrities, to average everyday citizens and even people suffering from chronic health problems and senior citizens.
If you haven’t heard of whole body vibration training machines made by manufacturers such as Power Plate, 3G Cardio or BH Fitness yet, you’re about to be let in on the fastest growing genre of the specialty fitness industry since the elliptical machines around 2000.
Whole body vibration training is no late-night TV tummy jiggler fad.
“One of our former players, Lance Kandel, works for G&G Fitness and brought a vibration machine into our weight room for a demo,” said West Holmes coach Kevin Maltarich. “He told us how to use it and to let us know what we thought of it.”
Although many of the Knights’ athletes and coaches were understandably skeptical, it was practically love at first vibration.
“I used them a lot during track season to help get stretched out before running and I’ll probably use them during football, too,” said rising senior Luke Ogi. “We mainly do a lot of basic stretches on them, but it definitely helps more to stretch on the plates. I like them a lot.”
Best described as looking like an oversized, fancy doctor’s scale, a person stands on the vibration machine platform and sets the G-Force at the desired power. According to 3GCardio.com, the body adjusts to the instability caused by the vibrations as people perform static or compound exercises and it forces the muscles to fire faster than any other form of exercise.
The faster your muscles tire, the faster they fatigue. That means you can complete a total body workout in less than 15 minutes. The vibrations activate muscles much more efficiently and safely than traditional methods — up to 95 percent of muscle fibers are utilized compared to 20-40 percent, according to some studies.
“Our kids fell in love with it, and it wasn’t just our football players,” Maltarich said. “We had track athletes, wrestlers and kids from other sports telling us how much they liked it.
“They really like it for stretching, but it can be used for strength training and cardio. Our football players like to stretch on it before a workout and the wrestlers do circuit training with it. … The kids said they never felt better after using it and the coaches really felt the stretch, too, when we used them.”
Vibration training machines are anything but cheap, with the Power Plates typically selling for anywhere between $5,000-$8,000 depending on the model. 3G Cardio and Wave machines sell for less and join Power Plate on most Best Buy ranking lists.
Maltarich said he joked to several athletes that the Power Plate machines were going to have to go back to G&G and “the kids looked like they lost their puppy dogs. They really wanted to keep using them.”
After bringing in several West Holmes booster club members they were sold as well: the Knights’ purchased two Power Plate machines.
“The older you get, the harder it is to loosen up,” the 38-year-old Maltarich said. “After 3 or 4 minutes on it, I’m good to go for a run.”
Ogi said the vibration machines continue to get lots of use.
“I was pushing to get them because they help me out keeping my hamstrings and other muscles loose,” he said. “I’ve seen most everybody use them.”

PROS TURN TO VIBRATION TRAINING
Half the NFL teams use vibration training, including the final four in last year’s playoffs: the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, runner-up Denver Broncos, AFC runner-up New England Patriots and NFC runner-up San Francisco 49ers.
Basically, it increases the G-Force, rather than the MASS (weights) as in most traditional strength and resistance training. That makes it much easier and safer on joints and ligaments than free weights or even home gyms.
Roxana J., a well-known trainer in Arizona, told 3GCardio.com she was a huge skeptic when first introduced to vibration training.
“Any time I kind of questioned it I thought, ‘If it’s good enough for people like Peyton Manning, PGA golfers, and U.S. Olympians – people whose bodies are insured for millions of dollars – there has to be something to it,’” Roxana told 3GCardio.com. “I love that whatever you can do on the ground, or with a cable or weight machine, for the most part you can do on the 3G. I love opening that world up to my clients.
“It’s not just for massage, it’s not just to feel a low-impact kind of workout. It can help people in so many ways. I love that I can get people to that point of burning calories, feeling the muscle burn and feeling the fatigue set in without their joints going into total distress.”
Admittedly, Roxana said some clients look at her with great skepticism when she initially shows them a whole body vibration machine.
“They look at me at first and say, ‘This is dumb. How is it any different than exercising on the ground or floor?’” she said. “I make them do something like a pushup, or a squat on the ground and then I have them do it on the 3G and they are begging me to get off.
“I love the strength straining part of it — feeling the body react.”
Vibration training machines have been found to increase flexibility, strength and even overall health, including increased bone density, circulation, lymphatic drainage and much more.
Workout times vary for vibration training, but typically sets last only 30 seconds to 1 minute, 30 seconds and an entire workout can be completed in 10-20 minutes. Working out just three times a week on a vibration machine can provide exceptional results.

What is an orthopedic treadmill belt?

Monday, August 11th, 2014
The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill has an upgraded, commercial Ortho Flex Shock™ suspension system to provide plenty of cushion over the powerful motor in the privacy of your own home.

The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill has an upgraded, commercial Ortho Flex Shock™ suspension system to provide plenty of cushion over the powerful motor in the privacy of your own home.

If you’ve spent much time shopping for or researching treadmills, you’ve probably heard of an orthopedic treadmill belt.
It sounds good, but if you’re like me you probably had several questions form in your mind. Questions like these:
What is an orthopedic treadmill belt?
What does an orthopedic treadmill belt actually do?
Do orthopedic treadmill belts actually work?
I found my answers after talking to several experts and sampling several machines in the specialty fitness industry.
First, let’s start with a brief history of the orthopedic treadmill belt.
The concept of an orthopedic treadmill belt is that it’s a thicker belt, which will cushion the impact when the foot strikes and will reduce some of the shock.
They were actually first marketed as part of informercials for cheap $300-500 treadmills. The manufacturers placed their “cheapie” model next to a high-end, $6,000 treadmill and had a gleeful fitness model drop an egg on both treadmills.
Guess which egg didn’t crack open? Of course, it was the cheaper model with an orthopedic treadmill belt.
Obviously, the cheap treadmills were a joke to run on and a big part of the shock absorption of any treadmill is the suspension system under the belt.
However, these first mentions of an orthopedic treadmill belt did create an interest and consumers began asking questions about them.
Soon, cheap department store brands were marketing them, although once again the overall shock absorption and suspension was no comparison to high-end treadmills.
Think about it, even if you have the best running shoes it’s going to be hard on your feet and legs to run on concrete.
Manufacturers of high-end treadmills shied away from producing machines with orthopedic treadmill belts until the last few years because the heavier belts made it tougher on the motors. The extra thickness generated more heat on the motor.
However, the technology now exists to allow orthopedic treadmill belts to “breathe” and the heat to be dissipated on a high-end treadmill.
One of the few companies to finally give fitness enthusiasts the best of both worlds — orthopedic treadmill belt and high-end treadmill — is 3G Cardio which is carried by At Home Fitness.
The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill retails for $3,999 and has a DC 4.0 hp motor, 22×62 belt size, max user weight 400 lbs and assembled weight of 386 pounds. This is a high-end treadmill, which is about half the price of comparable commercial and elite treadmills.
This 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill has an upgraded, commercial Ortho Flex Shock™ suspension system to provide plenty of cushion over the powerful motor in the privacy of your own home.
The 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmill ($2,499) also has the Ortho Flex Shock™ suspension system.
Try out the new 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill and Pro Runner Treadmill at any of the At Home Fitness stores in Arizona or shop online and www.athomefitness.com.

It pays to shop at a specialty fitness store

Thursday, August 7th, 2014
At Home Fitness Gilbert, 2810 S. Market St. Gilbert, Arizona 85254

At Home Fitness Gilbert, 2810 S. Market St. Gilbert, Arizona 85254

If you want to invest in specialty fitness equipment it really pays to do your research.
Here are five reasons why the most satisfied customers buy from specialty fitness stores, such as At Home Fitness in Arizona:
* Unlike the majority of workers in big box stores who may rotate from fitness equipment, to fishing gear to the shoe department, specialty fitness sales associates specialize in just fitness equipment. They know the different models inside and out and often are fitness buffs themselves.
Tell them your fitness goals and budget and they can get you on the right path.
* You get what you pay for. A $750 treadmill may look good in a newspaper or online add, but oftentimes these treadmills aren’t even sturdy enough to run on.
If you buy a cheap treadmill, chances are it will wind up breaking down and being used as a clothes hanger in a spare room.
People are usually more satisfied with fitness equipment they’ve bought at a specialty fitness store and make the extra money back over the long run because it will last longer.
* Better warranties. High-end fitness products usually come with warranties that will replace broken parts, which is unlikely from department stores. Specialty fitness stores give much faster and more efficient service if it’s needed, which is often paid for under terms of the warranty.
* Specialty fitness stores get the best models and deals. They often have special models and pricing they’re able to give from top manufacturers that aren’t available at big-box stores.
* Try it before you buy it! Bring your running shoes and try out the equipment you’re considering under the watchful eye of a trained specialty fitness store consultant.
Before, during and after the sale At Home Fitness is a one-stop source for the best specialty fitness equipment and service in Arizona.
Actually, make that a four-stop provider because At Home Fitness has four specialty fitness superstores in Arizona.
At Home Fitness is proud to offer the following superstore locations:
* Ahwatukee- 14647 So. 50th St., Phoenix, AZ 85044 (480-940-1022);
* Desert Ridge Marketplace – 21001 N. Tatum Blvd, Phoenix, 85050 (480-513-1123);
* Gilbert – 2810 S. Market St., Gilbert, AZ 85295 (480-855-6044) and;
* Scottsdale – 6969 E. Shea Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85254 (480-951-6951).

Treadmills are well worth the investment

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

There are few major investments a person can make for their home gym that will match the benefits of a treadmill.
Simply put, a treadmill is one of the most essential pieces of equipment for a person looking to stay in shape at home. Winter, spring, summer or fall, it’s always nice to be able to get on a treadmill for a workout in the convenience of your own home.
A treadmill gives you the flexibility to exercise how and when you want. You control the time, temperature, the workout program and the entertainment in the room.
During the summer, I prefer to exercise more outside, but it’s still nice to have the treadmill to jog on if it gets too hot or it’s raining.
Even during periods of ideal outdoor weather, a treadmill is still handy if you get busy during the day, you want to use it at night or you just want to change up your workout. Many people prefer exercising on a treadmill year-round because of the great ways they can customize their run or walk.
Treadmills are one of the easiest ways for a person to get an efficient aerobic workout. Whether you’re trying to get back into shape, begin a new exercise routine, maintain what you have or train for the next level, a treadmill can help take you to your goals.
At Home Fitness has an outstanding selection treadmills to meet your needs. Stop in to one of At Home Fitness’ four superstores in Arizona or shop them online for great deals on treadmills. Here’s a look at some of the award-winning brands AHF carries.
3G CARDIO – The 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmill (DC 3.0 hp motor, 20.5×58 belt size, max user weight 350 lbs) retails for $2,499, while the 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill sells for $3,999 (DC 4.0 hp motor, 22×62 belt size, max user weight 400 lbs).
Both of these treadmills offer performance and feel of comparable models up to twice their size.
The 3G Cardio design team put the emphasis on a top-quality running and walking experience, rather than lots of fancy entertainment features.
The result is a treadmill that feels like models up to twice the cost when you walk or run on it, but it also has enough entertainment features to give you great workout options and can easily be upgraded wit an iPad.
LANDICE – When it comes to treadmills, one size definitely does not fit all.
There are many variables to consider: how much you’ll use it, how you’ll use it, what style you want, warranty and, of course, price.
For those who want the best of the best in a high-end treadmill, Landice offers several outstanding choices. People might be surprised to learn they can mix and match some even at the elite level. Based on the model and options you choose, the award-winning Landice Treadmills generally sell for between $3,000-$7,000.
Landice offers two different sized frames (L7 and L8) and four different electronic boards (pro trainer, pro sports trainer, cardio trainer and the top of the line executive trainer) to select from.
BH FITNESS — At Home Fitness is an authorized dealer of BH Fitness products both in its Arizona superstores and online.
Two of the BH Fitness Equipment products that really stand out that At Home Fitness is carrying are the BH Fitness TS2 Treadmill (sale price $1,199, save $800) and BH Fitness TS4 Treadmill (sale price $1,799, save $200).
These are excellent treadmills for the price point, combining value and performance. The TS2 has an extra-large blue backlit LCD display and an extra 2 inches of running surface. The folding frame features Safe Drop technology, which helps offer a space-saving solution without sacrificing quality. It has a quiet 2.5 HP DC motor, 20” x 57” running surface and is Polar® wireless HR compatible The TS4 goes up in size with a 22-inch wide commercial running belt on a stylish folding treadmill platform that’s durable and nice looking. It has a quiet 3.0 HP DC motor, 22” x 57” running surface and Polar® wireless HR compatible.
MUCH MORE — At Home Fitness offers many more great treadmill options than are mentioned in this article. Check them out in person or online.

Five tips to go from summer slip-up to summer shape-up

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Most people plan on shaping up more during the summer.
We are outdoors more in the summer and tend to be more active and burn more calories, but there are also lots of opportunities to let fitness and diet lag. From family parties and picnics, to wedding and vacations, it’s easy to lose the battle of the bulge.
Here are five tips to go from summer slip-up to summer shape-up:
1. Exercise at least three times a week for 30 minutes – You need to meet this minimum requirement to be fit, but strive for even more exercise time. You should mix in cardio and strength training exercises.
2. Start simple – If it’s been a while since you exercised, start with basic compound exercises that work multiple body parts: squats, lunges, pushups, bench presses and planks.
Do three sets of 10-12 reps with each exercise two or three times a week – it’s up to you if you do them all on the same day or split them up. Rest for a minute or less between sets to keep your heart rate in a cardio zone.
3. Mix up your cardio – If you find different ways to get cardio exercise it will make exercising more beneficial and fun.
Get moderate to rigorous cardio exercise by doing activities such as using a treadmill, elliptical machine indoors, and also working in outdoor exercise such as bike rides, brisk walks and-or runs and swimming.
4. Upgrade your home workout room – If the temperature is too high outside to exercise, it’s nice to be able to do it inside in the convenience of your own home. Consider buying new fitness equipment, such as a treadmill, elliptical machine, a home gym or free weights. A great way to never miss going to the gym is to have your own gym that’s located just a walk down the hall at your home. Keeping a workout log is an excellent way to track your progress and set goals. A specialty fitness dealer such as At Home Fitness can help you find the best deals and equipment to fit your needs.
5. Enjoy a sensible diet – It’s OK to have some cheat days when it comes to diet, but just limit them as much as possible. If you enjoy several helpings off the grill, then make sure to eat extra healthy the next day. I enjoy having oatmeal and fruit for breakfast, fresh vegetables with a sandwich at lunch and salad and fish or chicken for dinner.
If you are going to be consuming alcohol, mix in glasses of water in between to stay hydrated and help limit how much you’ll drink.
Summer goes strong from Memorial Day to Labor Day and there’s a lot more fun to be had.
If you follow some of these tips you’ll have fun and shape-up. That’s having the best of both worlds – enjoying summer and feeling and looking fit.

Eight great reasons to lift weights

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

If you don’t know it by now, strength training is for a lot more than guys who want to look good in cutoff shirts.
There are a whole host of reasons why having good muscle tone and performing regular strength training exercises can benefit men and women of nearly all ages. Here are eight great reasons to lift weights:
1. Increase muscle mass – Multiple studies show that a three-day-a-week strength training program can increase muscle mass over time.
2. Avoid muscle loss – Adults who don’t perform strength training exercises on a regular basis lose on average between 5-7 pounds of muscle every decade.
Cardio exercise is extremely beneficial, but it doesn’t maintain or build muscle mass as we get older.
3. Improve metabolic rate – When muscles are strong, they increase metabolic rates. On the flip side, muscle loss is accompanied by a decrease in a person’s resting metabolic rate.
4. Reduce Body Fat – After as little as three months of strength training a person can lose 4-5 pounds of fat even without big diet changes. According to studies, regular strength training will result in more lean weight, which burns calories faster than fat.
5. Increase bone density – Strength training not only builds muscle, but improves bone density.
That’s why doctors are constantly telling people 40 and over, and especially senior citizens, to lift weights or use functional trainers.
Stronger bones mean less risk for breaks during falls.
6. Reduces injury risk – When people lift weights, it also strengthens ligaments and tendons and improves balance and coordination. All of this can help you avoid injuries.
7. Improves quality of life – Lifting weights increases balance, stability and flexibility. This makes performing every day activities easier.
Lifting weights puts your joints and ligaments through a full range of motion, greatly helping flexibility as well.
8. Makes you more confident – Both men and women who lift weights feel better about themselves.
It can help with confidence and even help manage symptoms of depression and anxiety.
If you’re looking to start or improve your existing strength training regimen, contact one of the At Home Fitness superstores in Arizona or shop online for great tips and deals.

The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill

The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill

This summer At Home Fitness is proud to add the new 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill and 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmill to an awesome lineup of award-winning specialty fitness equipment.
The co-owners at 3G Cardio have five decades of combined experience in the fitness industry and have designed these new treadmills the way most people would: quality over bells and whistles.
Rather than paying up to about half the retail price for electronics as people do with treadmills from some companies, the 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill and 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmills put substance ahead of style. The result are elite treadmills that everyone will be able to get a good run or walk on.
“Our feeling on a treadmill is you don’t need to spend a lot of money on fancy entertainment features because you have that already on your iPad,” the 3G Cardio design team stated. “With our new treadmills, all your money is going toward a top-quality machine.
“You’re paying for the quality and feel of the treadmill that you want. The programing is simple compared to some other models, but you get everything you need and if you want more entertainment put your tablet on there.”
The 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmill sells for $2,499 and features a DC 3.0 hp motor, 20.5×58 belt size, max user weight 350 lbs and weighs 216 lbs once assembled.
The 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill retails for $3,999 and has a DC 4.0 hp motor, 22×62 belt size, max user weight 400 lbs and assembled weight of 386 pounds. This is a high-end treadmill, which is about half the price of comparable commercial and elite treadmills.
The Pro Runner has a 5 year parts, 1 year labor warranty, while the Elite Runner warranty covers owners for an incredible 10 years on parts and 2 years on labor.
Both of the treadmills offer performance and feel of comparable models up to twice their price.
“Simple and effective” is the 3G Cardio motto and it’s evident in these treadmills.
Although the manufacturing emphasis is clearly on the performance of the treadmill, don’t think that the electronics aren’t outstanding as well.
With numerous pre-programmed courses, fitness tests, one-touch speed and elevation settings, heart rate control and the ability to custom create your own workouts, you will never become bored or overwhelmed when it comes to your programming options.
You can enjoy your music through the built-in speakers and cool down with a multi-speed fan. If you want more entertainment, connect your tablet and enjoy surround sound while watching your favorite movie or TV show.
Try out the new 3G Cardio Elite Runner Treadmill and 3G Cardio Pro Runner Treadmills at any of the At Home Fitness stores in Arizona or shop online and www.athomefitness.com.
