Gym Not For You? Why Not Try Out These Unusual Fitness Products

1 CommentMonday, 19 March 2012  |  Paul

For millions of people, the gym is a haven. A place to get fit, meet people and just feel better about themself. For others however the gym is a place to be avoided at all costs. It can be an intimidating environment if you are not one of the super-slim, super-muscular types, but it can also be boring. Pounding away on the treadmill or cross-trainer every day with dance music blasting in your ear is some people’s idea of hell. If the gym is not for you, there are some great fitness products available that you can use in your own time and best of all, in your own home.

Working out at home can be great fun and beneficial. Many people find that they exercise more regularly at home as they do not have to make a visit to the gym and do not have to pay the monthly membership fees. Not for the faint hearted is Inversion Therapy. Inversion Therapy involves hanging upside down using a specific inversion table such as the Teeter EP-850 Sport. These Teeter Inversion Tables have been found to relieve back pain and relax muscles but can also be used to perform a variety of exercises. With the Gravity Boots included with the table you can perform inverted sit-ups and squats.

Less extreme but no less effective is a Pedal Exerciser. It does what it says on the tin and is a great at-home fitness product that will not take up too much space in your home. The Pedal Exerciser Deluxe for example can be used to exercise both upper and lower limbs. These pedal exercisers provide the same type of workout as a bike but without the cost. As you get stronger you can adjust the resistance on the Pedal Exerciser to strengthen your arms and legs further.

If you are looking to improve your core strength look no further than the Sissel Fit-Dome Pro. Another space-saving piece of exercise equipment, this fit dome is a great way to perform a variety of exercises. Imagine half a Swiss Ball on a flat plastic base and you have the Sissel Fit-Dome Pro. This truly unique product is ideal for improving balance, cardio, strengthening and proprioceptive training. The dome can be adjusted in pressure and can be used with the base facing up and down for a variety of workouts.
