Have a fun, fast, fat-blazing indoor workout without feeling like a rat on a wheel.
Exercise machines weren’t created to punish people who eat too much. That’s what diets are for. But men and women spend hours, day after day, churning their arms and legs and waiting for the StairMaster or treadmill to make their bellies vanish. The result: They make it about as far as the average rat.
But your machine workout doesn’t have to be a road-or row-to nowhere. “By decreasing the duration and varying the intensity of your exercise sessions, you’ll get better results in less time,” says Chris Carmichael, founder of Carmichael Training Systems, and coach to Lance Armstrong.
