Cross Trainers

If you have visited a gym in the past then you would have probably seen a row of cross trainers. A combination of the stationary bike in the fact that it is a low impact movement together with the fact that you use both your upper and lower body make this an excellent piece of cardio equipment if you are looking to maintain or improve your overall fitness.
Cross Trainers

Most cross trainers come with variable resistance levels to cater for all users from the beginner to the advanced, with differences between machines including the options available on the display unit and the length of the stride motion. These are all important when considering which cross trainer to buy, and each product’s features is talked about in detail in our cross trainer product articles.

Exercise Bikes

Exercise Bikes are perhaps the most well known piece of cardio equipment for improving your cardiovascular health and performing fat loss exercise. There are three main types of exercise bike, the normal stationary exercise bike, spinning bikes and the recumbent exercise bike where you are positioned closer to the ground in a more horizontal position.

All three types offer an effective form of low impact exercise and are compact enough to be used either in home or commercial gyms. With so much variation in the types, features and price of exercise bikes it can be difficult to know which type is right for you. In the exercise bike product articles we compare a range of the best exercise bikes and find out what makes them so different.

Rowing Machines

If you are looking to buy a new rowing machine for using at home then there are many different manufacturers and models to choose from. The main areas these vary are in how they generate resistance, the display options and how compact they become if they can be folded.

With rowing machines now popular for home use as well as commercial gyms, companies are constantly coming up with better looking designs and interesting features.

One such example is WaterRower, who have revolutionised the design by creating rowing machines in a natural wood finish as well as having the resistance generated by water to provide a more realistic rowing experience.

Treadmills

Despite the increase in popularity of other cardio and fitness machines, the treadmill is still arguably the most effective machine for maintaining and improving your fitness levels. The majority of modern treadmills are now designed for home use, with folding models available that take up relatively little floor space when stored away.

Although the function is essentially the same, there are many differences between the types of treadmill available, including how easily you can increase and decrease your speed and incline, as well as some offering the ability to adjust to your heart rate automatically to keep you within your target range. These product articles aim to help you choose the treadmill that is best for your budget and training needs.
