It is getting cooler outside and for some, performing cardio outdoors or heading off to the gym to jump on a machine is just not in the cards. I have a solution – at-home cardio equipment. Trust me, as someone who has cardio equipment in her home, it is the best thing and here’s why.
Reason #1: Convenience
If I wake up late or if I am behind schedule I can jump on my home treadmill or elliptical to get in a quick cardio sweat sesh. It is not only convenient it doesn’t require me to waste time travelling anywhere. You also always can guarantee you can jump on it whenever you want vs. waiting your turn in a crowded gym.
Reason #2: You don’t have to worry about coming behind someone else’s sweat
I am serious – hygiene is a factor when you are working out on treadmills used by multiple people in the gym. Having the luxury of not worrying about other people’s sweat is a major bonus when you hit your own cardio equipment at home.
Reason #3: You can go intense in peace
High intensity interval training is not only all the rage but effective in burning fat during and after training is complete. Some of the latest at-home treadmills and elliptical machines have custom programming that allows you to set up your own special program (that no one else will change) so you can modify your interval training according to your training needs without using a generic program found in public gym equipment.
Reason #4: Know how much you’re actually burning
When you use equipment found in the gym you can’t enter your own profile (age, gender, etc.) to get a more accurate total calories burned which renders the information the cardio equipment shows you useless OR you have to wear extra heart rate monitors to get more accurate results. With top-notch home cardio equipment, you can input your own profile stats and get accurate information about the level of effort you put in which will help you with your fitness goals.
Reason #5: You can go as long as you want
Whether you want to do quick, short yet effective HIIT workout or a longer steady-state cardio one, owning a treadmill or elliptical in your home means you can stay on it as long as you want. In some more popular and crowded gyms they have time constraints on cardio equipment because so many people are waiting for them which can be disruptive to your workout and overall training plan.
Reason #6: Be entertained
Who has ever gone to workout at the gym which has a series of televisions only to have each screen on a channel you have no interest in? That can get boring very quickly. Plus, the screens can be too high which places your body in an awkward posture while on the machine. Not with at-home equipment. If you purchase the right one, you can get a cardio machine with entertaining add-ons and screens that don’t require you to crank your neck. And let’s face it, the more fun the workout is the more likely you will stick with it.
