Making you sweat is just the beginning.
Using algorithms to craft efficient at-home workouts, these fitness gadgets put the artificial intelligence in pain and gain.
Getting started is easy. Jen Sinkler, a writer and personal trainer, says that she often encourages clients to begin strength training at home by simply carrying around heavy household objects, such as jugs of milk. That said, some basic equipment can offer you variety and structure. We asked these experts for their favorite recommendations.
Wearables seldom make us healthier. Will Google's "heart points" be any better?
Quarantine reminded us that we could work out anywhere. But “anywhere” is not a place we go to do important things.
Peloton aficionados say the latest exercise craze gives them a sense of community they sorely missed.
Unlike the NordicTracks of the past, people actually use these.
Home fitness machinery, in all its bulk, was once relegated to the garage or the basement. Now, with a little help from Silicon Valley engineers, it is moving onto the wall. In recent weeks two tech start-ups, backed by millions of dollars of venture funding, have introduced sleek wall-mounted fitness systems that stream workouts into their customers’ living rooms, bedrooms, dens, foyers or home offices.
Three companies — Tempo, Tonal and Forme Life — are competing to supplant cheap dumbbells with smart machines priced in the four figures.
Fashion-focused athletic wear from bedazzled bras to leopard-print leggings is rivaling basic-black performance gear. But is it fitting for fitness?
Remember that creaky stationary bike your grandma used to have in her basement? Well, forget about it. Today’s big-ticket home-gym equipment is nothing like that. The list of treadmills, bikes, and rowing machines below are so advanced that you can join live classes or work out with a virtual personal trainer right from the comfort of your own living room.
If you want to recreate the same type of workout you were doing at your favorite gym, in a boot camp class or at a speciality studio, you’ll need to invest in the workout equipment that will let you execute specific exercises properly. (You can also surely integrate some of the stuff you already have into your gym-at-home routine, so don’t neglect those old weights or that exercise bike that’s been a laundry rack for the past three years.)
First, I have some quick advice on giving yourself more materials to work with than “a couple dumbbells” or “nothing at all.” Then, I’m going to explain how to structure your working-out pursuit in a way that will make it feel a little less like you’re just uncomfortable flopping around your living room day after day until the end of time.
Vibration machines have popped up in gyms alongside traditional equipment, and manufacturers claim ten minutes of vibration a day can be equivalent to an hour spent working out. Standing on a rapidly shaking platform will, according to claims, improve muscle tone and circulation, and accelerate weight loss.
It’s an appealing prospect: passively standing on a platform and doing, well nothing, while your body seemingly tones and loses weight on its own. But is there evidence these vibration machines actually work as they say they do?
It apparently allows you to exert yourself more without feeling as much pain.
Technogym, therefore, believes that if you make it difficult for your employees to be unhealthy, and convenient for them to keep fit through an assortment of initiatives, it’s highly likely they’ll keep in tip-top shape. Why? Because healthy employees make happy employees, and happy employees work better. It’s a win-win situation. But more about that later.
When it comes to good gym etiquette, our Facebook fans and Twitter followers told us wiping sweat off of shared equipment and machines is basically their Golden Rule.
But even though it’s gross to lie down into a puddle of someone else’s perspiration on the bench press, there’s not actually anything inherently germy about sweat. So what’s the deal?
"Exercise machines" are oxymorons. The devices we've come to depend on for so many of our physical exertions -- the bikes, the climbers, the treadmills -- aren't just stationary tools intended to encourage movement; they are also the functional opposites of their industrial counterparts. Rather than save us from physical labor, they demand it of us.
As boutique-style workouts become the norm, the ranks of cardio and weight machines are thinning.
Experts say the likelihood of dying, being badly injured or contracting a serious disease as a result of a visit to a hotel gym is rare, but the potential is real. The risks include equipment-related injuries, heart attacks and a constellation of contagions, for which gyms are an ideal breeding ground.
According to hyperenthusiastic reviewers.
If you're going to create a home gym in a small space, make sure these items are on your list.
Want to work out more often, but don't want to shell out for a gym membership or pricey boutique fitness classes? No more excuses! These workout essentials will help you sweat it out at home—no gym membership necessary. Pick and choose from our curated list of gear
The thing is, I can get a really good workout in with my little box of tricks. Sure, a treadmill and full set of weights would be pretty sweet. But I can do at-home workouts like resistance band butt workouts, warm-ups and cool-downs for my runs, abs workouts, and a variety of strength-training exercises all in the comfort of my own home with very minimal equipment and space.
All of the workouts and practices you love, plus body and mind work you never even knew existed.
This isn't just a mirror. It's a cardio class, it's a yoga studio, it's a boxing ring, it's your new personal trainer, and it's so much more.
You don't have to go out to get results. Or choose between small screens and bulky machines to hit fitness goals at home. With Tempo, there is no compromise.
Tonal learns from your body and tracks your progress in real time to take the guesswork out of strength training.
