Finding the perfect piece of fitness equipment can be a little confusing with so many different types on the market these days. Every other infomercial on television is advertising some sort of fitness equipment. You need to have a good idea of your target area, or areas, the space you have available to use and to store your equipment, and how much money you are willing to spend to get yourself in shape. Once you have the basics in mind then you can narrow it down a little.
One consideration if you are on a budget with limited space is Tony Little's Gazelle. You can get the basic model for less than $100 and it folds down to store in a tight space. The workout is a total body workout and you can do a variety of exercises to target specific parts of the body.
Treadmills are a very popular option for cardio and they are simple to use as well. You will be looking at a heftier price tag but you are more likely to stick with a piece of fitness equipment like a treadmill that mimics your natural movements of walking and running.
Of course there are plenty of other options but you might want to start small before you invest in a total home gym or something of the like. As with any new fitness program, you will need to check with your doctor to make sure that the fitness equipment that you decide on is going to be a healthy choice for you.
