Fit­ness starts at home

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - YOUR HEALTH -

EX­ER­CISE in any form – mild, mod­er­ate or in­tense – is bet­ter than no ex­er­cise at all.

Phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity with mod­er­ate in­ten­sity is good enough to im­prove car­dio­vas­cu­lar con­di­tions and re­duce the risk of dis­eases such as high blood pres­sure, di­a­betes, obe­sity, heart dis­ease and os­teo­poro­sis.

A rec­om­men­da­tion of mod­er­ate phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity is to brisk walk for 30 min­utes a day, three times or more per week.

Walk­ing is the most pop­u­lar choice whether out­doors or on a tread­mill be­cause any­body can do it on any given day with­out spe­cial skills.

It is rec­om­mended that in­di­vid­u­als should take at least 10,000 steps each day or walk 8km a day.

One of the ways to achieve this fit­ness goal is by walk­ing on a tread­mill.

With the lat­est NordicTrack C2 tread­mill, you can now ex­er­cise in the com­fort and con­ve­nience of your own home to achieve your fit­ness goals.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the C2 tread­mill in­clude:

20 pre­set work­out pro­grammes

Get the train­ing you want with built- in work­outs de­signed by a cer­ti­fied per­sonal trainer to help you achieve your fit­ness goals. Choose from calo­rie- burn, in­ten­sity, in­cline and speed work­outs.

20- inch x 55- inch run­ning space

The C2 tread­mill fea­tures a 20- inch by 55- inch tread belt de­signed to re­duce noise and fric­tion for a long- last­ing work­out.

It is stretch- re­sis­tant and en­gi­neered to stay cen­tred on the deck.

0kph to 20kph dig­i­tal quick speed con­trol

Whether you choose to walk, jog or run, this tread­mill ac­com­mo­dates ev­ery work­out with speeds up to 20kph.

You can eas­ily ad­just your speed

at the touch of a but­ton.

0% to 10% dig­i­tal quick in­cline con­trol

With the touch of a but­ton, you can ad­just your in­cline by up to 10%. Higher in­clines re­duce im­pact on your joints and add va­ri­ety to your work­out. Plus, you will re­cruit more mus­cle and be able to tar­get your hips, quadri­ceps and glutes.

Space­saver de­sign with Ea­sylift as­sist

Fold your tread­mill up and out of the way for con­ve­nient clean­ing and stor­age. A hy­draulic damp­en­ing spring does the heavy lift­ing for you, so you can eas­ily fold your tread­mill to save pre­cious floor space.

Flexs­e­lect cush­ion­ing

Get the best of both worlds with ad­justable tread­mill cush­ion­ing. A half turn of the knobs of­fers su­pe­rior im­pact re­duc­tion with cush­ion­ing iso­la­tors on each side of the deck. An­other half turn of the knobs gives a road- like sur­face to

mimic an out­door run.

iFit- com­pat­i­ble

A revo­lu­tion­ary in­ter­ac­tive train­ing pro­gramme, iFit tech­nol­ogy helps you get much more out of each work­out.

Track your progress, repli­cate real- life runs with Google Maps, train with Jil­lian Michaels and tai­lor your work­outs to your spe­cific goals with this tech­nol­ogy. ( This fea­ture re­quires the iFit wire­less mod­ule, sold sep­a­rately.)
