  2. Exercise Bikes Make It Easy to Get in Your Recommend Cardio

    From the American Heart Association to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every reputable public health organization advises regular, moderate-intensity exercise to maintain one’s cardiovascular health. Incorporating just thirty minutes of cardio five days a week into one’s schedule can result in dramatic, lifelong health benefits, but for many of us, finding the time to make it to the gym can prove incredibly challenging (if not impossible). Thankfully, low-cost, high-impact home gym equipment enables even those of us with the most hectic schedules to workout from the comfort and convenience of our own home. And when it comes to the category of exercise bikes, the IRONMAN Triathlon X-Class 310 Smart Technology Upright Bike provides the ultimate home workout experience.

    For a piece of exercise equipment to excel in a home setting, it’s important that it fit easily into the layout of your home. Already far less bulky than your typical bike when deployed, , the X-Class 310 Smart Technology Upright Bike’s is more compact than other bikes when in use and its oversized transportation wheels facilitate no-hassle relocation and storage. Equipped with a specially-designed “Quiet Drive” belt transmission system, users can workout to their favorite music (through the built-in Bluetooth speakers) or watching television without any mechanical interruptions or intrusions.

    And beyond its optimizations for at home use, the X-Class 310 provides a comprehensive and satisfying workout for fitness enthusiasts of all experience levels. A thirty-two-level magnetic tension system gives users the ability to adjust to the perfect level of resistance and difficulty, while the three-piece high-torque crank system delivers a smooth, always consistent rotation. Cushioned to achieve sustained comfort, the X-Class 310’s sizable seat and backrest can be adjusted to accommodate users from 5’2” to 6’4” in height and have a maximum weight capacity of 350 pounds.

    Finally, to keep users motivated and informed of the progress they’re making everyday, the X-Class 310 prominently features an easy-to-read, dual-backlit LCD display that monitors distance travelled, calories burned, time spent, and current speed. And through the seamless pulse sensors built into the bike’s hand grips, athletes can easily view their heart rate climb as they workout for additional level of fitness feedback.

  3. How the Right Bench Can Amplify Your Weightlifting Workouts

    As an increasingly popular form of exercise amongst men and women, weightlifting provides a multitude of health benefits including: denser bones, stronger connective tissue muscles, and tendons, improved balance, and much more. While one can complete many weightlifting exercises with weights and a bar alone, a high performance, reliable weight bench is required to get the full range of benefits and reach your goals faster.  Luckily, there’s the IRONMAN Triathlon X-Class 1500 lb Light Commercial Utility Weight Bench with Olympic Preacher Curl and Leg Developer Attachment.

    Inspired by the dedication and tireless drive of Ironman triathletes, the IRONMAN Triathlon X-Class Light Commercial Utility Weight Bench is durably constructed out of 2” x 3” tubular steel for unwavering strength. Equipped with a heavy-duty U-shaped stabilizer bar with flat platform to prevent movement and rocking during use, the bench supports users up to 6’4” tall and boasts a maximum weight capacity of 1,500 pounds. The bench’s strong construction also extends to its seat and backrest, which is made out of 2.5-inch thick commercial-grade multi-layer foam, to ensure sustained comfort during even the most high-intensity workout sessions. A 40.5-inch extended back and head rest also provide support for a wide range of workouts.

    The IRONMAN Triathlon X-Class Light Commercial Utility Weight Bench also features a detachable leg lock-down bar, the perfect assist for ab crunches, sit ups and more. The bench’s seat can be angle-adjusted into four different positions (0, 5, 10, and 15 degrees) to best suit the user’s preferences and is supported by a twist-locking pop pin for added security when locking in. There’s only a 1.5-inch gap between the seat and backrest no matter what angle either part is adjusted to, resulting in nearly 100% comprehensive support. From the seat, to the back rest, to the head rest, every cushioned surface is covered with soft yet durable double-stitched vinyl that can be easily sanitized with household cleaners.

    Finally, the bench is equipped with oversized transport wheels for no-hassle relocation, an invaluably convenient feature for home use. It can also be paired with the IRONMAN Power Cage and Squat Rack to form a complete weightlifting station in the comfort of your own home.

  4. Top 4 Things to Look for When Buying an Inversion Table

    Top 4 Things to Look for When Buying an Inversion Table

    While all inversion tables are designed to help you reap the health benefits of suspending your body against the pull of gravity,
    not all inversion tables are created equal. Check out the top four aspects to explore to find the table best suited for your needs.

    Safety Features
    Safety is your main priority, with a table that securely holds you in place at any angle. Look for safety handles that let you easily
    return to upright position, secure ankle clamps or ergonomic ankle holders, and a durable steel frame. Check the weight limit as
    well as the height adjustments to make sure they match with your own.

    Inversion Control
    Some inversion tables are manual, while others are powered by motors. Either choice should let you control the degree of
    inversion. Quality tables will offer controllable angles that range from a slight angle all the way up to the fully inverted 180
    degrees. Manually controlled tables often come with tethered safety straps that let you easily and securely control the degree of
    inversion while reclined.

    Comfort

    The inversion platform can vary from a bare, mesh frame to a padded and even heated backrest. Mesh frames with little to no
    padding may be more flexible if you’re intending to use the table in a vigorous exercise routine. Padded frames are ideal if you’re
    using the table for pain relief. Padded ankle bars contribute to both safety and comfort.

    Additional Features
    Inversion tables may come with any number of additional useful features that make them stand above their competitors.

    • Infrared Heating Elements: Certain tables come equipped with infrared heating elements incorporated into the back
      pad. Far Infrared Ray (FIR) heat therapy can be helpful for soothing muscle aches and back pain. Look for a thin, built-in
      FIR carbon filter heating element and safety features that let you control the time and amount of heat with a remote control.
    • Storage Options: Some tables are designed to fold up for storage when not in use.
    • Convenience Options: Additional features can add a level of convenience, such as side pockets for storing items you may
      need at-hand.

    No matter what table you choose, make sure it’s safe, dependable, inverts fully and smoothly, and comes with additional features tailored to your specific needs.

    Check our great selection of inversion tables to see which suits you best.
