Effectively combining strength training with a cardiovascular workout, the Heavyrope is the ideal combination of two of the most important exercise activities. Available in multiples weights — one, two, four, five, and six pounds — these eight-foot ropes increase your cardiovascular endurance and burn calories while strengthening your wrists, hands, lower and upper arms, and shoulders. The added weight increases resistance, making jumping rope a more difficult exercise, while increasing your heart rate and metabolism.
Make good use of your bike, even when the weather is too nasty this winter to even think of hitting the pavement, with the Kinetic Road Machine Fluid Trainer. This simple device works in tandem with your existing bike, almost instantly transforming it into a stationary bike perfect for off-season training, or just staying in shape. A magnetic drive system provides all the resistance you need for a realistic road feel, while a 6.25-pound flywheel gives it a natural-feeling wind-down. It's perfectly stable, even when you want to stand up while you ride, and it fits bikes with 22 to 29 inch wheels, so it's bound to work with yours.
