"Selectorized" dumbbells are adjustable dumbbells whose number of plates (i.e. weight) can be easily changed when resting in the dumbbell stand. This is achieved by adjusting the number of plates that follow the handle when lifted, e.g. by turning a dial or moving a selector pin — rather than manually adding or removing plates. This makes it very easy to change the weight of the dumbbell between exercises, and the stand typically doubles as storage for the additional weights not being used for a particular exercise.

I have worked out in gyms and have a home gym with pro level equipment, but this machine is easily the greatest home exerciser I have ever purchased. I bought one for a friend and used it when I stayed over, then loved that machine so much over our expensive elliptical and treadmill that after hesitating a little bit I literally bought another. Yes this should be a verified purchase as I am a repeat customer. Get it - it’s an easy workout at the lowest resistance levels, but at moderate and above it will kick your behind in good ways. Thus, from beginner to elite, you can grow into this machine, whose vertical oval “climb/elliptical”, shorter and higher than the standard horizontal loop, should become a new cardio machine standard.
An elliptical trainer or cross-trainer (also called an X-trainer) is a stationary exercise machine used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact injuries. For this reason, people with some injuries can use an elliptical to stay fit, as the low impact affects them little. Elliptical trainers offer a non-impact cardiovascular workout that can vary from light to high intensity based on the speed of the exercise and the resistance preference set by the user.
The moving footpads have an “Orthopedic Soft Step Cushioned Anti-Fatigue Material”. It’s very soft; I love the comfort it offers. It also has a stationary side step (one on each side), in case you want to rest in the standing position. I personally think this is an unneccessary feature as you can stand still on the moving footpads. The only thing is, if you stand still on the moving footpads, you run the risk of falling if you’re disoriented and can’t maintain a stationary position. I don’t have this problem so it’s not an issue for me.
Serious runners look for three key traits in a treadmill: excellent cushioning, a spacious track and a high top speed. Many look for treadmills with automated inclines too. Cushioning on treadmills for serious runners can deflect shock much better than asphalt can, so investing in a high quality machine can help extend each training session and a runner's career. The leading treadmills we highlight in this category have at least 60” tracks, can exceed 12 mph and have a wide range of incline settings. Read More…
