Reasons Dogs are Better Than Gym

As a per a survey in U.K. walking your dog is more beneficial than hitting the gym. And if you are the one who wants to tighten your currency belts in more ways than one, than you can certainly replace your pricey workout membership to invest in a pair of walking shoes. Dogs love to go out, stretch themselves and breathe fresh air - like you do. Here are three compelling reasons for you to enjoy the evening with your dog than the gym instructor.

1. Get more exercise to benefit your waistline

UK researchers have found that taking a dog for a walk can help you burn calories for that slimmer waistline than exercising in a gym. A U.K. research team surveyed about 5000 respondents and found that dog owners get more exercise walking as compared to people who hit the gymnasium to burn those calories.

More over the time spent while walking in comparison to exercising revealed that dog owners walked a minimum of seven hours a week while gym enthusiasts spent one hour and twenty minutes each week while walking or running on a treadmill. In fact, this survey also revealed that 86 percent of dog owners enjoyed their walks with their pooch in comparison to a sheer 16 percent of workout enthusiasts who actually loved exercising at the fitness center. What’s more as almost 70 percent admitted that they felt it was a duty which they need to abide to on daily basis.

Body-Solid StrengthTech EXM 2500S Home Gym Review

Looking at the Body-Solid StrengthTech EXM 2500S Home Gym reminds me of the weight machines that I would use during weight training for high school sports.

The only difference is that this gym combines all of the movements that I would move from machine to machine to do and makes them available on a single unit.

How Does the Body-Solid StrengthTech EXM 2500S Home Gym Work?

The Body-Solid StrengthTech EXM 2500S Home Gym uses cast iron resistance and is able to accommodate many exercises; including lat pull, chest press, leg curl and extension, row, tricep extension, ab crunch and more.

This gym is set up like a typical weight machine that can be found in any gym. Most weight machines only focus on a single exercise however, while the Body-Solid StrengthTech EXM 2500S Home Gym provides much more versatility.

Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym Review

I really wish that I could afford all of the high end exercise equipment that I see on the market, but I can’t. When it comes to saving space and money, Best Fitness had me in mind and created the BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym.

This gym is compact and will take up less space in both my home and my wallet. It is designed for a limited space and a limited budget, yet it does its job pretty well.

How Does the Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym Work?

This gym uses a weight and pulley system and works the upper body, back and legs through a variety of exercises. The resistance is controlled by a stack of plates that weigh 150lb.

The low height of this machine makes it friendly for basements or rooms with a low ceiling height. If you are looking for a machine simply for general fitness and strength training, the Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym might meet your needs.

Marcy Recumbent Mag Cycle Review

The benefits of using an exercise cycle are many, but some people avoid them because the seat is so uncomfortable. No piece of exercise equipment is going to do you any good if you avoid using it.

The Marcy Recumbent Cycle has eliminated the problem of seat discomfort; rather than subjecting the user to a small, hard seat, the Marcy Cycle has a generous chair that will not only make using the cycle a joy, but will also support your back.

Anyone who has given up on exercise bicycles because of a poorly designed seat will love exercising with the Marcy Recumbent Cycle. This cycle is also the choice of people who are trying to get back into shape following an injury or illness.

Weider X-Factor Door Gym Review

Nothing seems more convenient to me than to be able to take my gym with me wherever I go. The Weider X-Factor Door Gym is a gym that conveniently mounts to any standard door, allowing you to take your workout to any location that has a door.

While the concept is great, the quality of this gym seems to come into question upon further investigation.

How Does the Weider X-Factor Door Gym Work?

The Weider X-Factor Door Gym conveniently attaches to any door and uses resistance to give you the same type of workout that you are able to accomplish with weights. Included are three exercise DVDs and a chart that diagrams 50 different exercises that you are able to perform with either the handles or ankle straps, depending on what area of the body you wish to target.

The bands provide up to 220 pounds of resistance and provide a full range of motion so that you are able to get a complete workout.

It takes 5 minutes to set it up and put it on the door.

Powerline BSG10X Home Gym Review - Limited Space, Quick Assembly

I’ve always dreaded the thought of having to assemble a home gym due to the fact that I am less of an engineer than I would like to admit. It is for this reason that the Powerline BSG10X Home Gym appeals to me– the gym comes in a single box and 90% of the assembly is completed right out of the box.

Aside being practically pre-assembled; this gym is compact, versatile and well-built and has received quite a bit of praise.

How Does the Powerline BSG10X Home Gym Work?

Quick Assembly
Powerline prides itself on how quick this gym can be assembled, with claims that you can begin working out in as little as 30 minutes after opening the box.

Small Footprint – Dimensions
The unit has a compact frame and only takes up an area four feet wide and six feet tall. It is 70 x 42 x 80 inches and weighs 344 pounds. It will fit nicely in rooms with short ceilings.

I am always cautious of any advertising that claims you can get in shape with little to no effort at all.

With the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym, you are able to reach your fitness goals and do so in only 20 minutes of high intensity workout, three times a week. Those 20 minutes are extremely productive however, and require plenty of effort.
