Main­tain­ing a work-life bal­ance

IF you make time in your hec­tic day for a healthy life­style, you’ll find you have more en­ergy, which low­ers stress and helps you through chal­lenges.

Ex­er­cise is ben­e­fi­cial in bal­anc­ing work be­cause:

Ex­er­cise re­duces stress lev­els: Ex­perts rec­om­mend ex­er­cis­ing three times weekly with a min­i­mum of 30 min­utes. Re­gard­less of age or phys­i­cal abil­i­ties, reg­u­lar ex­er­cise pro­motes good blood cir­cu­la­tion and you will be able to tackle work with a more pos­i­tive at­ti­tude.

Helps you get a good rest: Ex­er­cise is a good way to give off en­ergy so you’ll be able to sleep more soundly. A good rest will lower risk of mis­takes in your work and you will also have more fo­cus.

Re­duces risk of sick­ness: Stress could af­fect your im­mune sys­tem and lead you to fall­ing sick eas­ily. Ex­er­cise re­leases en­dor­phins, which can make you happy.

En­dor­phin is a chem­i­cal in your brain that acts as a nat­u­ral painkiller.

Build­ing good team play­ers: Peo­ple who main­tain fit­ness are more likely to par­tic­i­pate in team ac­tiv­i­ties and projects.

With the US No.1 Fit­ness Brand in the World NordicTrack C2 tread­mill, you can now ex­er­cise in the com­fort and con­ve­nience of home.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the C2 tread­mill:

>Twenty pre­set work­out pro­grammes

Built-in work­outs de­signed by a cer­ti­fied per­sonal trainer help you achieve your fit­ness goals.

> A 20-inch by 55-inch run­ning space

The C2 tread­mill fea­tures a 20-inch by 55-inch (50cm by 140cm) tread belt de­signed to re­duce noise and fric­tion for a longer last­ing work­out. It’s stretch re­sis­tant and en­gi­neered to stay cen­tred on the deck.

> Zero to 20KPH dig­i­tal quick speed con­trol

Walk, jog or run – this tread­mill ac­com­mo­dates ev­ery work­out with speeds up to 20km/h. Ad­just your speed at the touch of a but­ton.

> Zero to 10% dig­i­tal quick in­cline con­trol

With the touch of a but­ton, quickly ad­just your in­cline up to 10%. Higher in­clines re­duce im­pact on your joints and help add va­ri­ety to your work­out. Plus, you will re­cruit more mus­cle tar­get­ing your hips, quads and glutes.

> Space-sav­ing 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.

> Flexs­e­lect cush­ion­ing

Get the best of both worlds from ad­justable tread­mill cush­ion­ing. Turn it one half turn for su­pe­rior im­pact re­duc­tion, with cush­ion­ing iso­la­tors on each side of the deck. Turn it an­other half turn for a sur­face that feels like the road to mimic an out­door run.

> iFit-com­pat­i­ble

A rev­o­lu­tion­ary in­ter­ac­tive train­ing pro­gramme, iFit tech­nol­ogy (re­quires iFit wire­less mod­ule, sold separately) helps you get much more out of each work­out.

Track your progress, repli­cate real-life runs with Google Maps, train with Jil­lian Michaels, and cus­tomise your work­outs to your spe­cific goals.
