Cross-Country Ski Machine at Home
A complete and easy to use cardio equipment, combining the benefits of rowing devices, steppers and spinning bikes, the cross-country ski machine is popular both in gym clubs and at home. Its purchase for private use brings along numerous advantages such as allowing a total work out and the comfort of having it any time you feel like exercising at an affordable price. You can give up your costly annual subscription to the gym and your investment will quickly be covered. A quality device, the cross-country ski machine will give you almost identical results as professional equipment. Moreover, you can choose the most suitable time to perform your workout: in the morning when you wake up, after breakfast or in the evening, when you come home from work.
One of the main benefits of a cross-country ski machine is that is trains all the muscles of the lower body (thighs, calves, glutes) as well as the top (arms, shoulders, pectorals, abdominals, back). In fact, about 80% of the muscles are solicited during an exercise. The secret lies in its elliptical motion designed to replicate as closely as possible the natural motion of running while protecting the joints from shocks. Therefore, it provides a viable alternative for staying fit, removing fat, maintaining stamina, staying in shape, working your cardiovascular system and your breathing ability without running the risk of sore back, hips or knees.
Another interesting feature of the cross-country ski machine lies in its great ability to burn fat and lose weight. Half an hour of moderate intensity exercise performed five times a week can help you lose 300 to 400 grams of fat per month. The exercises seem easier than on traditional machines like spinning bike, stepper or treadmill. The cross-country ski machine is more efficient because all muscles are active and cumulative calories are expended. The difficulty is, thus, distributed rather than concentrated on only one anatomic part. A significant advantage for quick and motivating results!
