I live over an hour’s drive from the nearest fitness center or organized gym, however it’s simply not possible to maintain a membership; The weather in our local area is severeâ€¦ For approximately several straight months, there’s snow on the ground as well as un-even temperatures below freezing.
The Spring as well as fall tend to be windy, rainy as well as chilly! Summers are especially tepid as well as humid.
Finding the right conditions to go for a run or a bike ride is rare, then most of the time, it’s necessary to workout at house as well as inside. I’ve set up a fine house gym. Since I exercise every single morning, it’s important to myself and others to have a comfortable space as well as satisfactory equipmentâ€¦ However, the larger machines are harshly high-priced! Buying a jump rope, free weights as well as yoga mat wasn’t a big investment! Adding a mini trampoline as well as some battle ropes didn’t affect our budget all that much. I needed to save up before I was able to purchase a stationary bike. I prefer the bike. The seat is super comfortable as well as the operation is quiet. I can workout with the bike while the rest of the family is watching television or sleeping as well as not disrupt anyone. I’m able to learn on our kindle while I pedal. The bike offers a variety of programs. I can customize the workout by duration, distance or calories burned. I can make the session more challenging by adding resistance or pedaling faster. The bike also keeps track of our workouts, as well as I appreciate to compete against our personal best. It’s helpful that the bike works our muscles, gets our heart pumping as well as inspires a sweat without any damaging impact on our joints.
