Workout Equipment for Beginners

If you are like most people, you have made some New Year’s resolutions for 2019. One of the things that tops the list of so many people is a resolution to in one way or another to improve your health. That is always a good thought. Unfortunately, so many of us fail to carry it through the whole year and on into everyday life.

Sometimes we spend large sums of money and in the end have little to show for it. If we followed through and accomplished the goals we set that would be good. But if we do not follow through, we find ourselves with equipment and toys and memberships which will be wasted and afford us no good.

What I propose to do here is to present you with some equipment which you can use to help to achieve some of your fitness and health goals without maxing out your credit cards. So, if you fail to achieve your goal you at least will not have to get a second mortgage on the house.

Workout Equipment for Beginners

The format here is to present you with choices of different types of workout equipment that you can fit to your particular situation or goals. None of the articles presented will cost over $200 and most quite a bit less. We will present the product and explain how it can be used to help you meet your health goals. You can decide which will be best suited to your situation and purpose.

All the equipment that I shall present can be purchased on Amazon and I will give you a direct link to the product from this website so as to make it easy for you to access.

XTERRA Fitness FB150 Folding Exercise Bike

The XTERRA Fitness FB150 folding exercise bike is the cost per results that one can get in achieving good health in the coming year. It has a solid X frame and only takes up 18″x18″ of space when folded and stored. It has a large seat and padded handle bars. It has a digital readout on a 2″x1″ LCD screen which displays speed, distance, time, calories and pulse. It has 8 levels of resistance controlled by a large Dial tension knob. It can be easily rolled and store out of the way and out of site.

Bicycling is a great way to burn those calories without jolting the body as is done in jogging or running. It makes it convenient to be able to roll it out and ride for 20 or 30 minutes and then store it out of the way. If done in the morning it will raise your metabolism so that you will be burning more calories throughout the day than if you had not exercised.

At this price there is not a better deal anywhere.

There is an easy to read monitor that tracks your distance, speed, time and heart rate. It has rolling wheels to make it easy to store out of the way. And it has a wide padded seat with a back rest.
