You’ve probably seen it on TV, or heard about it. The Gazelle is a well known machine used to burn fat and build muscle in the comfort of your own home.
Advertised on TV, endorsed by fitness professional Tony Little, this machine is similar in design and motion to the animal it’s named after. It is a simple and effective tool that is low impact and easy on the joints. It’s easy to use and does not take too much time to learn.
The way it works is simple – standing on the foot pedals and grasping the handles at about chest level, pushing and pulling your arms and sliding your feet back and forth is the way to start. The gazelle will glide with your movements, creating a simple, yet effective workout targeting mainly your legs, lower buttocks, and waist yet at the same time, offering a complete aerobic cardiovascular workout.
You will be hard pressed to find a machine that is simple, fun and effective like this one.
Personally, I like the natural, flowing motions will help you get on track and moving towards your exercise goals, whether it’s a slimmer waits, stronger legs, or even just a healthy heart. It is inexpensive, efficient in terms of space and very effective. It is available, usually on a discount at most local sporting good stores and can be used by all members of the family.
The low cost of the gazelle is what makes it a great home exercise option. It comes in different models, allowing you to select one that has the right features for you. You can also purchase exercise videos, that offer variety, and inject a sense of enthusiasm and fun into the workouts. Many exercise variations are possible with this machine.
At the end of the day, remember that this is just one tool among hundreds. While it’s definitely something to consider not only price, but also in convenience and effectiveness, you must do your research and consider other equipments too.
If you can, try and be consistent with the use of this machine. Make it a part of your daily routine, while watching TV or listening to music. This makes the experience fun and convenient.
For best results, include some aerobic exercise and weight training along with the gazelle. When used properly, this is a good option and can be exactlly what your body needs to get you back on your feet and motivated to keep you on track with your workout routine.
