Starting a new work out regime? Ask Bridget for training tips! Read more
I used to keep fit on my personal treadmill from home, which I enjoyed a lot but since my knee has been taking some strain, I have now converted/traded it in for an Orbitrek Platinum fitness machine. What are your views on this? Will this keep me fit enough? I have also started using the vibro shape belt for my tummy areas.
I have always been a fit person so just want to know if both these new machines will maintain my current fitness/weight.
Hi, my sincere apology for only getting back to you now.
Firstly what is the problem with the knee?
How long has it been painful?
What are your limitations and why?
The orbitrek is great as it has cardio vascular benefits without the jarring.
What level of fittness do you want?
Your training is best to be in line with what your goals are.
Firstly once you are clear on what your exact goals are its alot easier to training accordingly.
There are so many different levels of fitness for so many different activities.
Clarity is key.
The best way to get fit is doing interval training. Invterval meaning increasing and decreasing level and intensity for a period of time.
The golden rule is always work 20% out of your comfort zone in order to improve fitness and get the most amount of benefit.
Hope this makes things a bit clearer.
