2016 is here. Our resolutions are made. Time to conquer! Staying healthy and staying fit are usually towards the top of our to-do lists. Do you want the most effective cardio? Do you want to focus on your core? Are you pressed for time and need a quick, killer workout on the go? We asked the experts at Gym Source to share their favorite fitness equipment for moms.
“Our favorite cardio machine is the Cybex Arc Trainer. Like most moms, this extraordinary machine wears many different hats – it’s a Skier, Elliptical, Stepper, Hiker and a Climber all in one! The key to effective cardio is changing up your workout as much as possible, and with 20 different incline options and 80-100 different resistance levels keeping you in proper form, this unit does just that.  Structurally, it’s the most heavy-duty cross-trainer in the industry—built and designed for clubs. When you buy one for your home, you can rest easy knowing it will last a long time with little to no maintenance. Because Cybex is the most research-driven manufacturer, you’re also getting a piece that’s among the most biomechanically sound for your body.  We love the Arc Trainer for moms (or anyone, really) because you burn 16% more calories than on any other elliptical in the industry in the shortest amount of time! What’s not to love?
Our favorite strength piece is the Cybex Bravo.  It’s one of the most compact, versatile and effective home gyms out there! This machine is especially ideal for moms because of the patented “core activation pad”.  Everything you do comes from your core. Since you’re working your core while strengthening all other muscle groups at the same time, this unique piece is great if you want to focus on tightening a postpartum belly while still getting a full-body workout.

For the busy “mom-on-the-go” or for someone with budget or space constraints, we recommend the TRX HOME suspension training kit.  These fitness tools are perfect for strength, core, flexibility and plyometric exercises. And since everything you need will probably fit in your diaper bag, it’s easy to pack up and take with you. This efficient training kit allows you to utilize your own body weight to get a killer workout in anytime, anywhere.”
