A guide to fitness and stamina products

Exercise is a very important part of one’s life, as it does not only provide a means of physically keeping fit and healthy, but also a means to keep people spiritually fit and healthy. Due to the stress in modern life, many people are choosing to exercise at home or want to, but they do not know where to start. To this end, this article will give a guide to fitness and stamina products.

Treadmills

Treadmills and their advantages Treadmills are machines that pass an elastic running track through a machine (hence, the name ‘tread-mill’) at different speeds and different inclines. Treadmills are very good ways to lose exercise from the comfort of one’s own home because you can go on them whatever be the weather. They are convenient, they can be used while watching TV (or even chatting to friends) and there are no potentially annoying sweaty and/ or leering people watching you which there can be, in a gym. Disadvantages of treadmills
The disadvantages of treadmills are that they are quite expensive for even the cheapest models. They are usually quite cumbersome and large, so they may not be suitable for houses without much free space. Moreover, some people just prefer the freedom and rewarding nature of (geographically) moving and seeing different sights when they are running.

Exericise bikes, weights, pilates and yoga equipment

Exercise bikes In a similar vein to treadmill exercise, bicycle exercise can be done on exercise bikes. These are stationary machines which mimic the feel of riding a pushbike at different inclines (‘resistance’). Unlike the treadmill, though, there is no set speed because obviously, the user generates this. Weights, pilates and yoga equipment For these reasons, some people prefer to leave the ‘more rigourous’ exercise for sports or jogging and simply, do weights, or yoga or pilates workouts at home. Weights equipment includes dumb-bells, weights benches and resistance bands. Especially with the huge increase in the popularity of these, there is now a huge array of different yoga and pilates equipment available. This includes equipment (from small exercise ball to large aero pilates machine), instructional videos and, especially for yoga, theoretical books. There are many dedicated online sites which offer these, in addition to places like Amazon and eBay.
