I have to admit that I am a sucker for a good marketing when it comes to fitness products. My wife follows lots of fitness influencers on Instagram, and I noticed a lot of them are using products like Sweet Sweat vs TC1 waist belts. These products are designed to be worn around your waist during a workout, and cause you to lose weight through heavy sweating. I decided to give these products a try and see if either improved my workout, or if they were just another marketing gimmick.
Over the years, I’ve made a point of making sure my home is full of some of the best at home workout equipment that I can use whether I’m doing programs like T25 or P90X3, or just using independently of any program.

Then, I have to decide which version that would best suit my needs between Bowflex Max Trainer M3, M5 & M7. There are some key differences that I looked at to decide which was the best workout equipment for me and my family.
Since spring has sprung for most of us in the county, that means that beach/bikini/swimsuit season is on the horizon. Whether you stuck to your new year’s resolution or have been slacking a bit, there is still time to fire up your abs and get rid of those “not in” love-handles that might have crept back into the picture. One of my favorite ways to get in shape quick is by dedicating a few weeks to Beachbody On Demand workouts at home, which will have you seeing results in no time.
With the explosion of races like Spartan Race and Tough Mudder, people are getting off the treadmill and finding new ways to combine cardio and strength training into their at home workouts. Even if you’re not training for a race, and just want to add a great full body burn to any of your other at home workouts, finding the best vertical climber machine could be just want you need to elevate your routine!
One question I get asked all the time is which dumbbells are best for at home workouts. The Powerblock and Bowflex adjustable dumbbells are the two premier products, and I have actually used both of them at one time or another in my garage gym, and in my basement for workouts. There are a few other products on the market with similar functionality, but these two are the most popular and most reliable products worth your investment.
