How to get swimsuit ready while there’s snow on the ground

February 6, 2013

The weather outside may be frightful, but spring break season is just around the corner, and if you’re taking the kids (or treating yourself) to the beach, it’s not too early to begin the process of getting swimsuit-ready. While you may not be able to take your workout routine outside just yet, TRUE Fitness offers the perfect home fitness equipment to motivate you to slim down and tone up.

Keep that heart rate up!
With it’s integrated touch screen technology, the TRUE PS850 treadmill is perfectly designed to help you stick to your workout plan and reach your fitness goals. Choose from a variety of scenic landscapes and perspectives and plug in your iPod for a little extra motivation to reach your full beach-body potential.

The TRUE PS850 is designed specifically to give you the most effective and inspiring workout, and we’re not just talking about those scenic landscapes. TRUE’s patented Soft System┬« technology puts you in control of the firmness of your running surface while its digital heart rate monitoring system will help you reach your target heart rate and achieve maximum effectiveness in your workouts.

Keeping your heart rate up is crucial if you want to lose weight and look your best for the beach. Heart rate is a good indicator of the intensity of your workout, which in turn corresponds to the number of calories you burn. Estimate your target heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 and use the TRUE HRC Cruise Control to automatically adjust your workout to maintain your target heart rate. Minimal thought, maximum effectiveness.

Tone those legs
Of course, getting swimsuit-ready isn’t all about losing pounds. If you’ve reached your ideal weight and are looking to tone your legs, TRUE Fitness stationary bikes are the perfect solution. The TRUE ES9.0 Upright Bike is ideal for bike-lovers looking for an indoor biking experience that’s similar to biking outside. The snow on the ground may prevent you from breaking out your bicycle just yet, but because the TRUE ES9.0 provides a realistic cycling experience you won’t have to. Its aero bars, armrests and gel seat provide maximum comfort, while the bike’s ergonomic design is ideal for long distance sessions, so you’ll be ready to hit the beach before you even break your real bike out of storage. Best of all? The TRUE ES9.0 also has TRUE’s patented heart rate control technology, which will help you keep your heart rate up for the entire workout.

But if you’re recovering from an injury or are the type that likes to read while you exercise, the TRUE PS50 Recumbent Bike is the way to go. It’s low to the ground and has a mesh seat that’s designed for lumbar support, providing easy access and the ability to reduce back stress while you exercise. The seat allows for an infinite amount of adjustments so it can fit every body type and fitness level. And the TRUE PS50 has the same heart monitoring capabilities as the TRUE ES9.0, so you can still maintain your target heart rate throughout your workout.

Let’s go to the beach
So as you’re getting ready to hit the beach and dreading the moment you have to put on that itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny-yellow-polka-dot bikini, remember that you don’t have to do it all on your own. Whether you prefer running or biking, want maximum support or maximum motivation, TRUE Fitness has the perfect equipment to help you become your ideal you.
