05 Dec 12 days of AHF Christmas: Home Gyms
Editor’s note: To help get our loyal followers ready for Christmas, and let them know about the many great deals available through At Home Fitness, I’m revealing the 12 days of AHF Christmas. Here’s Day 2:
“On the second day of Christmas, At Home Fitness sent to me Two home gyms, and a sales associate with a great fitness plan for me.”
Home gyms are easily one of the most versatile pieces of fitness equipment if you want to build and maintain muscle, all the while improving overall fitness as well. At Home Fitness carries more than a dozen great manufacturers who make home gyms and/or their first cousin – functional trainers.
Functional trainers are similar to home gyms in that they have weight stacks on their base, too. The main difference is in the cable systems and that they come with different shaped handles. This provides more options for working out and because the cables do not have to follow a fixed plane, more sports specific routines are able to be implemented.
First is Life Fitness’ G7 Dual Adjustable Gym (without bench). The G7 is a popular health club model-inspired dual adjustable pulley home gym.
It offers the highest level of options and customization for your workout, making it easy for any level user to get started and stay motivated. The features exclusive to the G7 allow you to build your own training workouts, track your progress and follow along with a certified personal trainer, who will guide you through the two training routines.
Second is the award-winning Inspire Fitness FT1 Functional Trainer. Rated the No. 1 Buy winner for the 5th year in 2016, the FT1 training allows you to have complete freedom of movement in any direction or plane while performing weight resistance exercises.These unrestricted exercises are designed to move the way your body naturally moves. Many of the freestanding exercises incorporate core, secondary, and stabilizing muscles, giving you a more efficient workout.
The FT1 is an excellent training machine for athletes interested in sport specific exercise movements or for people looking to strengthen their overall bodies, increase stamina and coordination or lose weight.
The one-handed adjustable high/low pulley system adjusts to more than 30 height positions quickly adjusts for all your exercise needs and the dual weight stacks allow you to work each side of the body independently for a more balanced workout.
