  • Heart Rate Control Training

    It’s not uncommon to see gym equipment outfitted with high-tech heart rate monitors. What exactly does heart rate control do? Do we really need it? Well first, let’s distinguish between some different terms here. A “heart rate monitor” is simply a tracker that reports your heart rate to you in real time through the use of sensors. A machine equipped with “heart rate control,” on the other hand, will actually adjust the settings on the machine (such as speed and incline) based on how your heart rate fluctuates as you exercise.

  • Treadmills--It's All About the Cushioning

     

    Treadmills are typically among the first machines considered for a home gym – they offer a great workout for people of all fitness levels, and are based on our most natural movement patterns. But when selecting a new treadmill, pay special attention to the suspension system. The right suspension system will protect your joints from the impact of exercise and enhance the overall feel of your run.  In fact, compared with road running, properly cushioned treadmill running typically reduces impact by about 15%-40%.  A great suspension system will provide the cushioning and shock absorption you need to handle your most intense workout and still give you lateral stability and support.

  • The 3 Top Treadmills for Heart Rate Control Training

  • Why Choose an Orthopedic Belt?

    Treadmills can offer a lower-impact alternative to outdoor running, providing that the cushioning system is properly built. Better treadmills’ belts and decks are designed to help your joints absorb shock upon impact, while providing a firm push-off.   Orthopedic belts take your comfort to the next level, and help make your treadmill workout even safer for your joints.  They are thicker than regular treadmill belts and designed to further reduce the amount of concussion when you walk or run.  The ribbed surface of a good orthopedic belt also is designed to provide better grip for running shoes, and is also especially helpful in a higher incline workout.  Many new treadmills already have orthopedic belts, or you can replace the belt on your current treadmill with an orthopedic belt.  To do this, you will need a treadmill with rollers that are at least 2.4”.

  • “I Can Shop Anywhere for a Treadmill. But I Only Have One Place – Gym Source.”

    It’s all about relationships. In 2010, David Grunhut, President of Astor Chocolate, came into Gym Source’s flagship store in Midtown Manhattan and told sales executive Nigel Anderson and his team that he “wanted a healthier life.”  Nigel and Mr. Grunhut discussed his goals, tested out a few cardio machines and ultimately decided that the Cybex 750R recumbent bike with TV screen would best serve his needs.  It turned out to be a hit for Mr. Grunhut, a big hit -- in fact he used it religiously.  So in 2011, when Mr. Grunhut heard the buzz about the Cybex Arc Trainer, he came back to Gym Source and conferred with Nigel yet again.  With Nigel’s expert guidance, he selected the Cybex 750AT Total Body Arc Trainer.  He was so impressed with the results he got with the Arc Trainer, he came back in December 2012 when he decided to replace his old treadmill.  This time, again with Nigel’s advice, Mr. Grunhut chose the True PS 850.  “When you look at treadmills, you have so many feature and machine options.” explains Nigel Anderson, “I knew the True PS 850 was the optimal machine for Mr. Grunhut.”
