- LifeSpan TR2000-HR Compact Treadmill
The LifeSpan TR2000-HR compact treadmill is not your typical treadmill. It was designed specifically for anyone living in town homes, apartments and others who just have space constraints. Why? The LifeSpan TR2000-HR not only takes up much less room than the standard treadmills, but the TR2000-HR folds up into a full upright position (hydraulic assisted folding feature)! Also includes rear wheels on frame to easily move out of the way when it's not in use (great for quick and easy compact storage). The TR2000-HR utilizes an extraordinary "walk-through" design favored by seniors and novice treadmill users. The design removes the obtrusive front hood and relocates the motor and electronics to underneath the frame. The result allows the user to move forward on the treadmill and stay close to the console and handlebars without kicking the hood. Wait until you hear this-the TR2000-HR comes with one of the best warranties in the industry: Lifetime Warranty on the frame and motor! What a great value-uses all steel frame construction, heavy duty deck, oversized oval tubing, and 2-1/2" rollers as the mechanical foundation. The electronics include all the features you need without being complicated. Accommodates users up to 300 lbs.-see the LifeSpan website above for more!

- Tanita BC-554 Ironman Elite Body Composition Monitor
The BC-554 Body Composition scale not only measures weight and body fat, it also tells you your muscle mass, body water %, basal metabolic rate (BMR), metabolic age, bone mass, visceral fat and rates your physique! The muscle mass feature indicates the weight of muscle in the body. The Body Water % is the total amount of fluid in the body expressed as a percentage of total weight. The BMR is the daily minimum level of energy or calories your body requires when resting (including sleeping) to function effectively. The Metabolic Age compares your BMR to the average age associated with that level of metabolism. The Bone Mass is the weight of your bone in your body. The Visceral Fat is the fat in the abdominal cavity (stomach), surrounding the vital organs. The Physique Rating is a rating of your body type. Its sleek modern design of glass and silver looks awesome in any location. Uses advanced Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology previously available only to medical professionals! Simply supply your gender, age, and height in the memory, step on the scale, and the BC-554 does the rest!

What is Cardiovascular Disease?
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an abnormal function of the heart or blood vessels. It can cause an increase in risk for heart attack, heart failure, sudden death, stroke and cardiac rhythm problems, thus resulting in decreased quality of life and decreased life expectancy. The causes of cardiovascular disease range from structural defects, to infection, inflammation, environment and genetics. In order to help prevent cardiovascular disease one must adopt a healthy lifestyle and avoid smoking, fattening foods and stress.
