All about our Home Gym
Ok so obviously these images were shot a while ago because my hair was still red. But i’ve been sharing a lot of my home gym in my stories lately and I’ve gotten a lot of questions so I thought I’d take to my blog to give you all a better tour.
It has been so much fun working out at home. We worked with Nordictrack and iFit and have their machines which I wanted to share more about in this post because I am not going to lie, I expected to get ones that were like the machines at my gym.. but these BLEW MY MIND!
I had never seen machines like this! For cardio we have the elliptical, bike, treadmill, and row machine. The row machine is probably my personal favorite – you can select work outs on the screen that either make you feel like you are rowing down an actual body of water – they have a ton of locations you can pick from! Or you can do work outs with a trainer.. one of my favorites is a quick 15 minute burner that has you do interval training on and off the rower. David’s favorite is the treadmill since he has been training for another triathlon. You can select to do hikes, runs, or work with a trainer. But with an upcoming surf trip he’s been doing the HIT training workouts on the row machine that takes him on and off the machine mixed with floor exercises. The best part is that the treadmill automatically adjusts.. so if you are going uphill on the hike the treadmill will adjust its incline and speed to make it feel like you are really on the hike. I love to do the trainer work outs on the treadmill because I love anything that is interval training and it has pushed me to try new speeds at new inclines that I normally wouldn’t try myself.
The same thing goes for the fusion machine – you can follow along with weighted workouts and the weight will adjust automatically based on your profile and the workout. I love to do a little cardio mixed with mostly weights so I LOVE this machine. There is soooo much you can do with it and the work outs you watch on the screen are really helpful because some of the moves I had never seen before so it is fun to mix it up.
