LIVE with Kelly and Michael Feature Must-Have Fitness from Gym Source

Fitness is a hot topic in January, so it’s no surprise that must-have fitness machines from Gym Source were prominently featured on two of TV’s biggest morning shows this month.

First, NBC’s Today Show mentioned the “Elliptical Extravaganza” sale at Gym Source as a “Best Buys For January” on January 8.  Said contributing editor Elizabeth Mayhew: “Retailers are trying to capitalize on the fact that maybe you still have those New Year’s resolutions to get in shape. You can get excellent, excellent deals! At Gym Source for example, you can get 25% off ellipticals.”

The very next week, equipment from Gym Source was featured on ABC’s LIVE with Kelly and Michael during their “Workout With Us Week.”

Show host and former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan demonstrated one of his personal workouts at a Manhattan fitness club outfitted entirely by Gym Source.  The “Secrets of the Strahan Workout” shows Michael’s trainer Latreal Mitchell, (Michael’s self-proclaimed “conscience”) guiding him through a grueling workout.  His challenging routine includes foam rollers, free weights, kettlebells, the Hoist HD 1910 Personal Pulley System and a punishing stint on the Concept 2 Rowing machine.

Another day, Michael rocked the Schwinn AC Performance bike, and Kelly ran (fast) on the TRUE LC 1100 treadmill. Also featured was the Lifespan Treadmill Desk, which was described as: “a healthy way to stay fit. You can type on your computer while working out so that you don’t spend so much time sitting.”

The final segment featured both hosts taking the Presidential Fitness Challenge, guided by Self Magazine deputy editor Meaghan Murphy.  The challenge started with a 1.5 mile run – both Michael and Kelly ran on the TRUE LC 1100 treadmills.

It was clear throughout the week-long series that Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan are dedicated fitness enthusiasts who appreciate (and use) the very best fitness equipment and expertise available. We here at Gym Source are proud to be a part of it.
