    This Exercise Glider Is A Discount Elliptical With Plenty Of Features

    August 13th, 2019

    Product review of exercise glider.

    Today’s home exercise equipment offers a wide variety of options. From treadmills to elliptical machines to rowing machines, the selection available can be overwhelming. The Gazelle glider is a unique alternative. The Gazelle Freestyle glider is easy to set up and provides a fun, low-impact workout. It is an easy to use exercise glider that can be used at a slow walk up to a fast run. However, many users have reported that since the only resistance it has is the user’s weight it does not raise the heart rate enough during exercising. While the Gazelle is solidly built with extra wide, non-skid foot platforms, some Amazon reviewers report it lacks stability and is noisy.

    It is an inexpensive, cardio option which can be folded up for storage. The glider can be moved, but users say it really should not be considered portable. If you are looking to get up off the couch and get moving or if you are just need of a low-impact way of exercising, then the Gazelle Freestyle is one piece of exercise equipment you might like to consider.

    Discover The Tony Little Elliptical Trainer Named The Gazelle Edge

    November 2nd, 2018

    Product review of gazelle edge.

    There is a new compact machine on the market for home-gym rats. Inspired by the traditionally larger elliptical machine, the Gazelle Edge offers a cardiovascular workout for an affordable price. The Gazelle Edge has received mostly positive reviews, “I absolutely love this glider! And for the price you cant beat it,” said one customer. Similar low-priced elliptical type machines cannot compare to the Gazelle Edge in terms of stability and durability. A full range of motion and a 5-function workout computer which logs speed, distance, time and calories burned comes with the easy-to-setup machine.

    A foldable design for easy storage, non-skid foot platforms and steel frame make the Gazelle Edge a customer favorite. “After trying out about a dozen different elliptical exercisers in sporting stores, I eventually bought the Gazelle Edge. It is a great little exercise machine but does have some short comings,” said another customer. Accordingly, customers stress that the Gazelle Edge is not a replacement for traditional elliptical machines. Customers describe the on-board computer as “inadequate” and characterize the resistance training as “unnatural and unsatisfactory.” However, it is “perfect” for those customers who do not want to spend $1500 on a deluxe elliptical machine. characterize the resistance training as “unnatural and unsatisfactory.” However, it is “perfect” for those customers who do not want to spend $1500 on a deluxe elliptical machine.

    Over the course of the last decade, Bowflex has established itself as the premier name in home fitness equipment. Anyone building a home gym centered on Bowflex equipment knows their name is synonymous with quality. Now one of the latest offerings from Bowflex can be yours with the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1. The adjustable Bowflex SelectTech bench has been specially designed for use with the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbell systems and offers a wide range of exercise options. With an adjustable bench that easily switches from 17 degrees declined to 90 degrees inclined, users can move fluidly from exercise to the next.

    The ergonomic design of the incline or decline weight bench promotes good posture while exercising, helping to avoid injury in the process while focusing the work on the proper muscle groups. Bowflex is so proud of the sturdy design of this unit that they offer a 30 year warranty on the frame; now that is confidence! While the Bowflex SelectTech bench was designed for use with the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells, it is not necessary to own this adjustable bench to use those weights. At nearly $250, the Bowflex weight lifting bench is significantly more expensive than even older models from Bowflex, meaning there are better deals to be found that don’t require a sacrifice in overall quality. The majority of online reviewers were pleased with their Bowflex SelectTech adjustable bench, but it appeared to be less of a hit among serious weight lifters. Many users complained of poor construction with their unit and stability issues that gave them great concern.
