- Nautilus StairMaster FreeClimber 4400CL
The StairMaster FreeClimber 4400CL is the most space-efficient professional “Stair Stepper” model. It’s also perfect for home gyms, condos, and aprartments because of its small, compact footprint (2 x 4 feet, with a height of about 5 ½ feet). It only weighs 126 pounds—plus it has wheels in front! The 4400CL incorporates all the latest StairMaster technology and design refinements including a cordless design—you charge the battery by simply using it! Huge backlit cutting edge C40 LCD display, rail-less configuration (promotes proper upright posture when exercising), reading rack with accessory tray (use for audio players & remotes), and huge water bottle holder! But trust me; this is a challenging workout which simulates a cross between doing stadium stairs, and riding a bike up a long hill. Regardless of your age or fitness level, the FreeClimber 4400CL stepper will offer you a pleasurable, fun, and undeniably challenging workout.

- LifeSpan TR2000-HRC Compact Treadmill
The LifeSpan TR2000-HRC 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-HRC not only takes up much less room than the standard treadmills, but the TR2000-HRC 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-HRC 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-HRC 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 350 lbs.—see the LifeSpan website above for more!

- Quantum Fitness Power Crunch 600
The Power Crunch 600 uses a patented dual pivot technology, which allows for both upper and lower crunch movements to be performed simultaneously and offers the most intense abdominal workout available. Only the Power Crunch 600 offers left and right oblique isolation—simple adjustment allows easy isolation of side to side internal & external oblique muscles. The Power Crunch 600 not only eliminates the human error factor in performing your crunches, but every rep you do is guaranteed to give maximum benefit to your entire mid-section (including upper, lower, and left/ right obliques). The University of Houston's Department of Human Performance extensive Electromyographical (EMG) tests were performed on a wide variety of people ranging from old and young, to male and female. The Results: “The Power Crunch 600 out-performed all major abdominal floor exercises with up to 51% greater involvement in the upper region of the rectus abdominis and 44% greater in the lower region.” Now you know why it is nick named the “The Ultimate Home Abdominal Machine.”

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.
