How To Choose The Best Exercise Equipment For You

We strive to offer the very best fitness equipment and revolutionary systems to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. With so many high-quality pieces of equipment to choose from, it can be tough to decide what would be best to add to your home.

To help narrow down the contenders, here are some steps you can take to help you decide on the right piece of NordicTrack exercise equipment.

Start By Determining Your Equipment Budget

Your budget for a new piece of equipment is a great way to narrow down your options when it comes to browsing for that perfect machine. Depending on your preference, you can find a variety of budget-friendly machines from the stationary bikes to affordable treadmills. Even better, if you find your ideal machine is out of your current budget, NordicTrack offers two different financing options to help you afford the right machine for you.  

Identify Your Health And Fitness Goals

Once you have your budget figured out, it is best if you identify what you would like to gain from using workout equipment at home. Below are some examples of how you can pair equipment with your health and fitness goals.

Best exercise equipment – NordicTrack
  • Goal – Banish a muffin top and tone all over: The Fusion CST is a great full-body targeting cable machine combining cardio with strength training to help people make amazing transformations.
  • Goal – Improve blood pressure and lower risk of heart disease: Running on the treadmill is an excellent way to make your heart work more and increase your blood flow, leaving you with a better resting blood pressure and significantly lowering your risk of cardiovascular issues.
  • Goal – Low-impact workouts that will bring up heart rates: An elliptical or exercise bike are great machines that are easy on your joints while allowing you to crank up your heart rate and burn some serious calories.
  • Goal – Fast weight loss: An incline treadmill can burn calories faster by using the incline option than working out at a 0% incline. In a recent study funded by NordicTrack, the X22i showed positive results, including significant decreases in body weight, fat mass, and lean tissue mass, as well as showing an increase in aerobic fitness.

If you are already invested in a sport such as long distance running or cycling, it is easier to determine what machine will help you reach your training goals.

Check Your Available Equipment Space

Last but certainly not least, be sure you carefully measure the area you have for a new piece of equipment. Consider that any equipment you decide to get will cover a little space, especially equipment that does not have a folding feature.

So, before you commit to a machine, make sure you check its dimensions with your available space. If you are low on space, a stationary bike or the Fusion CST are compact enough to fit in many homes with ease.

By following these steps, you should be able to decide which piece of equipment is the one for you!
