08 Jul Where to find best high-end fitness equipment in Arizona: Treadmills
Editor’s note: This is the first in a seven-part series on how to find the best high-end fitness equipment for your home gym. Featured today are treadmill reviews.
These days we are bombarded with advertisements promising us great savings and value. But what if you were willing to spend some extra money and wanted the very best quality equipment for your personal gym?
Where would you go for advice about high-end treadmills and other fitness equipment? What would you buy?
Some people make the mistake of writing down the name of equipment they’ve used at a commercial gym and assume that’s what would also be best for their home gym.
That couldn’t be further from the truth. Club brands are chosen for durability because they can be in use for 10-16 hours a day. You’re not going to get the smoothest rides, runs or lifts, or most comfortable seats on machines that are built to sustain great stress.
A monster dump truck is best for a quarry job, but obviously not your daily commute to work or a road trip. You’d obviously opt for a more comfortable, stylish truck for personal use. In a similar vein, the most heavy duty fitness equipment is not the best choice for a home gym.
To find the best high-end fitness equipment in Arizona, including top of the line treadmills, turn to the pros at At Home Fitness. They have treadmills that are used by everyone from marathon and professional runners to the average couple next door.
If you want the cream of the crop for high-end treadmills, the Bentley or Louis Vuitton if you will, here are three great choices at different top of the line price points from $3,900-$7,000 and above:
Landice L8 Executive Treadmill (AHF price $5,900) – The Landice L8 LTD Executive Trainer contains the most features to be found in the L8 LTD series. In addition to its computer-animated display, it offers additional fitness tests to help you push your body to a whole new level. Landice is No. 1 when it comes to top of the line motors, superior electronics panels, and solid, long lasting construction.
People might be surprised to learn they can mix and match treadmill features even at the elite level. 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.
Men’s Journal rated Landice extremely high, giving them the “Gear of the Year Award.” The magazine reported: “Looking to the automotive world for inspiration, Landice created a treadmill with the brushed aluminum finish of an Audi TT, the round, red-and-white analog gauges of a ’55 T-bird, and the audio console of a Lexus SC 430. Under the hood it’s powered by a 3 hp engine that exceeds health club standards and pushes its top speed to 12 mph – a very respectable pace.”
