A-list fitness gift ideas: Home gym

Are you or someone close you you looking to get stronger in 2012.
If so, an A-list Christmas gift you should consider is a home gym machine.
What could be a better way to ensure that you’ll exercise than to have the convenience of owning your own home gym?
A home gym gives a person the ability to exercise whenever they want and to totally control the workout environment because it’s in their own home.
The Home Gym includes one or two weight stacks, with fixed arms and hand grips. It can be bulkier and more expensive than Functional Trainers.
Most movements on a Home Gym follow a set plane, such as military press for shoulders, bench press for chest or leg extensions.
Home Gyms are great for beginners as they are generally regarded to be easier to use, but they can also benefit experienced lifters.
They can be a good complement to lifting with free weights because Home Gyms will keep you on a controlled lift and do a good job of isolating specific body parts.
