"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.
For $1,500, you can easily find a treadmill that comes with innovative features and a well-built frame, and these are a few of our favorites. These models offer more attractive entertainment packages than the $1,000 models, so you get a few more bells and whistles but we consider these models worth the extra $500. Our top choices for this category include models that are priced ideally for what they offer. Read More…
More recently, treadmills are not used to harness power, but as exercise machines for running or walking in one place. Rather than the user powering the mill, the machine provides a moving platform with a wide conveyor belt driven by an electric motor or a flywheel. The belt moves to the rear, requiring the user to walk or run at a speed matching that of the belt. The rate at which the belt moves is the rate of walking or running. Thus, the speed of running may be controlled and measured. The more expensive, heavy-duty versions are motor-driven (usually by an electric motor). The simpler, lighter, and less expensive versions passively resist the motion, moving only when walkers push the belt with their feet. The latter are known as manual treadmills.
Treadmills provide an effective cardio workout, and a home treadmill gives you the freedom to work out anytime you like. That means you can pack more calorie-burning exercise into your busy lifestyle. And with a treadmill in your home, you'll also have an easier time convincing other family members to get active and stay healthy. In choosing a treadmill, you'll need to decide between the manual and motorized types. If you're a multi-tasker, you can pick a model with an attached work desk, and if you have weight-bearing health concerns, an anti-gravity treadmill provides reduced joint stress. Take the first step and you'll soon find the treadmill that meets both your fitness needs and your budget.

A better placement option for the heart rate monitor sensors, would have been on the moving “Multi-Grip Handles”. That way you can move your arms back and forth while getting a heart rate reading. I chose an elliptical machine so that I could work out my arms & my legs simultaneously and the current heart rate monitor sensor doesn’t allow that. Another annoyance is that it takes a couple of minutes before the machine will read my heart rate. I think the sensor is a bit too sensitive on the finger(s) placement. So for a couple of minutes, I’m not moving my arms getting the workout I wanted. Again, this is nothing major but the machine has this feature, so why not be able to utilize it effectively? I plan on getting an external heart rate monitor (the kind you strap around your chest) so that I can keep both of my arms moving during my entire workout.
