ElliptiGo takes cardio workout outdoors

Friday, September 12th, 2014
The ElliptiGo

The ElliptiGo

Riding an ElliptiGo is so much fun that you might forget you’re also getting a great workout.
Using an ElliptiGo is like your traditional elliptical machine was suddenly able to leave the floor and ride outside.
The ingenious machine is part elliptical, part bike.
It transforms the health club or home gym workout many of us are accustomed to and brings it outdoors in a whole new way.
When riding the ElliptiGo you are constantly moving. It provides an excellent cardiovascular workout, but because you also have to push with your legs and pump the handles with your arms, you also get a good strength workout.
An article from active.com calls the ElliptiGo possibly the best cross-training tool for runners.
“it’s perhaps the only cross-training tool that closely mimics the running motion and can be used outdoors,” the active.com article states. “Cross-training can be the saving grace for any runner interested in longevity in the sport as well as for new runners looking for ways to increase fitness without additional pounding.
“In fact, most coaches and training plans advise that healthy runners of all levels incorporate some amount of running-specific strength training, such as core work, drills and single-leg exercises, and low-impact cross-training, such as swimming, cycling or riding the elliptical, into their routines.”
Co-founder and ElliptiGO co-president Bryan Pate enjoys people’s reactions when seeing the machine for the first time.
“Don’t judge it until you’ve tried it,” says Pate. “It looks different, but it definitely works and provides the best cross-training experience available on the market today.”
An ElliptiGo lets you cover a lot of ground, enjoy the fresh air and at the same time it’s easier on the joints than running.?Let’s face it, it’s also a great change of pace from a standard elliptical machine or bike.?The ElliptiGo has three speeds and you power it with foot movements like you’d use on an elliptical machine, while controlling the handlebars to steer, adjust the resistance and speed and brake.
It weighs just 40 pounds.?Depending on your leg strength, you can ride the ElliptiGo anywhere from 15-25 mph. The ElliptiGo can take a short while to get used to, but is actually pretty simple to ride. Once you find the right stance to ride it and work on turning corners, you’ll find you can actually get some good speed going. Even going up hills is pretty easy.?It can accommodate people of just about all sizes, with a weight limit up to 250 pounds.?Made of sturdy, but lightweight material, the ElliptiGo weights 40 pounds. The bike retails for around $2,000-2,400.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
The 3G Cardio® AVT™ 6.0 Vibration Machine offers the quality, durability, and performance necessary to challenge even the most advanced athlete and it can also benefit everyone from the average couple next door to senior citizens.

The 3G Cardio® AVT™ 6.0 Vibration Machine offers the quality, durability, and performance necessary to challenge even the most advanced athlete and it can also benefit everyone from the average couple next door to senior citizens.

Building a high-end home gym has many great advantages. It will help you make a bigger commitment to fitness, while avoiding the aggravations of having a health club membership.
There are many great options available for a home gym, which sales associates at any of At Home Fitness’ four superstores in Arizona or their website www.athomefitness.com can assist you with
It’s important to be able to perform both cardio and strength training in a home gym.
Try your equipment out thoroughly before purchasing it because the best fitness machines are ones that you will use.
Here are five suggestions for a high-end home gym based on products available at At Home Fitness, but of course you might want to substitute some brands or model when it comes to some of the equipment:
Octane Fitness Q47ci Elliptical (MSRP $4,999, AHF sale price $4,499) – Octane is a fitness leader after year after year, and nowhere is that fact more evident than in the flagship Q47 Series Elliptical cross trainers. These top-of-the-line ellipticals deliver club-quality form, function, and results to your home gym; they are unquestionably the most ergonomically advanced and technologically superior ellipticals available.
3G Cardio 6.0 Vibration Training Machine (MSRP $4,999, AHF sale price $4,499) — The 3G Cardio® AVT™ 6.0 Vibration Machine offers the quality, durability, and performance necessary to challenge even the most advanced athlete and it can also benefit everyone from the average couple next door to senior citizens. Built for any type of commercial environment but at a price point comparable to other vibration plates made only for home use, the 3G Cardio® AVT™ 6.0 will blow away the competition on features and overall value.
It features a 34” x 28” vibration platform with a machine weight of 267 pounds, maximum user capacity of 500 pounds and 30-50 Hz capability.
Landice L8 Executive Trainer (MSRP $4,695) – The Landice L8 has an oversized running area and a frame designed for runners over 6-foot in height or for people who simply want the top-of-the-line for performance and durability. Marathoners, triathletes and other elite athletes regularly train on the L8, which has a 22” x 63” four-ply treadbelt running surface. 3-1/2 inch diameter rollers. It has a footprint that measures 34” x 83.”.
The L8 has Landice’s most feature rich console.
Torque Fitness F7 Fold Away Strength Trainer (MSRP $4,149, AHF sale price $3,099) – This home gym includes an Adjustable Weight Bench. The F7 Away Strength Trainer has a dual weight stack gym that offers true, independent functional training packaged in a small fold-away footprint. With two adjustable swivel pulleys – each with 30 positions – and two different widths, the F7 accommodates users of all sizes in performing unlimited exercises.
Extras – It’s very important to have proper flooring in your home gym. When the floor has a hard surface, such as wood or soft tiles you definitely need floor mats. If your workout room is carpeted you may not need floor mats – or only in selected areas. Make your workout room more inspiring by putting up photos, posters and-or motivational posters.
Other extras that will put your room “over the top” include setting up a stereo system, TV, such as exercise balls and stretch tubes.
Consult your specialty fitness store for more information.

Good vibrations: Ohio H.S. athletes tapping into fastest growing segment of fitness industry

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);

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.
