Did you vow to start exercising more in the new year? If so, you’re hardly alone; during the year now behind us, over a third of Americans reported making a fitness-related resolution.
Fortunately, today’s equipment and devices make developing good habits so much easier. You just need to bring a little bit of motivation and we’ll help you eliminate excuses to help get you started toward the unique gifts of fitness and better health in 2017.
Think you don’t have enough space for the convenience of in-home exercise equipment? This motorless walking treadmill folds to only 14″ high for unobtrusive storage. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, this treadmill’s walking platform folds flush with the handlebars for easy storage in a closet or against a wall. Plus, its resistance is created by magnetic force, eliminating the need for AC power, so you can set it up anywhere in your home.
Say your life is too busy for an exercise routine? Track how many steps you take daily, then try to increase it bit by bit as you go about your day, with an objective of 10,000 steps. This ultra-thin pedometer is no wider than a book of matches. It slips comfortably in any shirt- or pants-pocket and tracks your steps using a state-of-the-art German accelerometer for optimal accuracy no matter how the pedometer is worn. The pedometer counts up to one million steps in its 7-day memory. How’s that for a goal?!
Do aches and pains keep you from moving more? This low-impact exercise machine provides a complete cardio workout from the comfort of a favorite chair. A Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, the pedaler combines a bike-like workout for the legs with an upper-body ergometer, letting you maintain overall cardiovascular fitness and muscle tone without putting strain on weight-bearing joints. This pedaler makes a great unique gift for anyone who likes to catch certain TV shows during their day – they can pedal as they binge-watch.
The first step is the hardest…but excuses carry no weight with us (pun intended). Take it one day at a time and persevere. Before you know it, exercise will become as ingrained in your day as brushing your teeth!
