Home Gym Etiquette 101: An Open Letter to My Daughter in the Time of COVID – James Fell

by fitness journalist
I love you. I would step in front of a Nickelback concert for you. But during this exercise in the time of COVID, I need to explain some things about gym etiquette. I know you’re going bugshit because you can’t go to karate or your fitness classes, and I’m happy to have you working out with me in the home gym. I also understand that you’ve never worked out in a conventional gym before, and must explain that there are certain things that you just don’t do. Let’s get to it. No stinky perfumes I know you meant well, but […]

Ronnie Coleman Looks Strong Training Arms in Home Gym

Ronnie Coleman is training arms like a beast in quarantine. Ronnie Coleman is a beast of a man.

Having a personal gym is nothing new for Hoppen’s clientele – “I’ve designed thousands, all of them different,” she says – but what has changed, in light of the pandemic, is what people want from their workout, and where they […]

I Love to Walk, and This Space-Saving Treadmill Has Been the Perfect Home-Gym Solution

by fitness journalist
I’m never going to be one of those people who loves to run. I’ve tried over and over again, jogging on tracks, treadmills, and through the woods. I just don’t enjoy it. But I do enjoy walking. Getting steps in is my favorite way to spend my lunch hour, and my husband and I look forward to walking our dogs as our designated family time. Walking is a big part of my maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but living in central New York where cold temps and dangerously icy sidewalks abound, I find that I have a difficult time reaching my […]

These Adjustable Weight Benches Will Perfect Your Home Gym

by fitness journalist
So you invested in a reliable pair of adjustable dumbbells and maybe even resistance bands for your home gym, but now you realize those can only get you so far. Workout benches let you level up your home workouts by tackling different exercises and, in effect, different muscle groups. Think of the possibilities. Bentover rows. Triceps kickbacks. Bench presses. All of that’s doable; you’ve just gotta filter through weight benches to find what best suits your needs. But, from junk benches to veritable gems, there’s no shortage of options when you type “weight benches” or “workout benches” into ye olde […]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawnie from Fabulous I am so glad I purchased the Rock n Fit. I workout every other day and really look forward to it, unlike other equipment I have tried in the past.
