Get strong and blast fat with StairMaster’s latest machine

Image

After 30 years in the gym- StairMaster has dropped a few sizes. Their new StepMill 3 has been redesigned from the ground up. Now, your favorite piece of gym cardio equipment easily fits under eight foot ceilings and standard doorways.

The new size means the traditional StairMaster toughness can now fit into all new settings- apartment buildings, medical offices, home gyms, hotels and spas.

It’s all the sweat, in a smaller size.

With StairMaster’s StepMill 3,  users can achieve one of the highest calorie burns per minute of any cardio machine.

What’s so great about the StairMaster is it’s ability to give you a great workout in whatever time you have available. That’s because lifting your weight uses the largest muscle groups in your lower body- the back, the glutes, thighs and calves- making every minute of your workout count.

You’ll work hard,  without being hard on your body.

Climbing one mile per hour on StepMill 3 is as effective as running 7mph on a flat treadmill.

Challenge yourself and keep your routines fresh with over 25 pre-programmed motivating workouts.

You don’t need a big machine to get big results. See the new StairMaster for yourself. Stop into MGL Fitness on 500A Pilgrim Way in Green Bay, Wisconsin. We’re your One Stop Fitness Shop – and the new StepMill 3 could be your one-stop fitness machine!

Taking your exercise outdoors

ElliptiGo

Ready to take your exercise outdoors? The first warm weekend of spring has finally arrived in northeastern Wisconsin, and many of us can’t wait to take our routine outside. There are a number of good reasons to do so.

* Exercising outside reduces stress:  according to a report published in Environmental science and technology, 71 percent of people feel less stressed after a thirty minute walk.

* Exercising outside is more enjoyable:  the change of scenery keeps you involved longer, and makes the activity more fun.  Being outside also means you’re more likely to exercise with friends or among other people, that can add to the enjoyment.

* Exercising outside helps your body:  breathing in fresh air increases the oxygen to your brain and blood cells. That results in better mental clarity, and greater energy to the body.

* Exercising outside exposes you to sunshine – spending 30 minutes in sunlight can give you nearly a day’s supply of vitamin D through skin exposure. But be careful, we all know that too much can raise the risk of skin cancer, not to mention a painful burn.

There are a number of different options for getting exercise outdoors: walking, running, participating in sports, engaging in yard work.

If you are looking for something a little different this season, check out the ElliptiGo. Part elliptical machine, part bicycle, it mimics the motion of running without the impact, and allows you to get out of the gym.  Anderson Cooper recently tried one out on his show when checking out the newest fitness trends for 2013.  We imagine he would have had even more fun exercising with the machine outdoors!

Want to try out the sensation for yourself? Try one out at MGL Fitness, 500 Pilgrim Way in Green Bay, just off Ashland Avenue. Or give us a call at 800-335-2770. Hope to see you

The Case Against Infomercial Exercise

television-2.jpeg

 

It’s so tempting! You’re flipping around the dial, watching late-night TV, and the ad catches your eye. Exercise programs that promise nothing but fun and results, with loads of happy and muscular models touting the benefit. Before and after shots that are nothing short of miraculous. Equipment that stores under the bed or in the closet  but rivals gym quality. Earnest TV stars and fitness celebrities who urge you to trust them and buy!

How many of you have called the toll-free number in an inspired ( or weak) moment? And how many of those promises did your late night purchase deliver?

The truth of it is,  you have very little chance of succeeding with equipment and fitness programs purchased this way.   No matter what you think you’re getting from seeing it on television, there are always a few surprises.  Gliders that don’t glide,  home gyms that turn out to be more difficult to operate than advertised,  equipment that seems a lot more shoddy in the light of day. 

Not only that, but in order to succeed at your fitness goals, your equipment has to fit YOU – your likes and dislikes, your fitness level, your budget, your space, and your schedule.   And the only way that can happen, is to see it, try it, and ask questions about it.  Chances are, if you could try out that home infomercial equipment before you bought it, you might opt for something else entirely. 

 Maybe you’d go for a Precor elliptical or treadmill, the standard in commercial gyms everywhere for it’s quality and durability. Or an Inspire home gym, top rated  for a solid body workout in a small space, or a Landice treadmill, voted #1 in  customer satisfaction by a leading running magazine.  We also have bikes and free weights and kettle bells and fitness balls, and yes, even some of the fitness products that you see advertised in those late-night infomercials!

So do yourself a favor and come on out to see us at MGL Fitness. We’d love to talk to you about the best way to reach your fitness goals, with equipment and products to fit your budget, lifestyle, and fitness personality.   Bring your gym shoes and kick the tires and try stuff out before you buy. We’d love to set you on the road to fitness. Then, rest easy, knowing that MGL Fitness stands behind its products and service – for more than 20 years serving customers in Green Bay and Appleton just like you.

And that’s something you just don’t get with a late night 800 number!

 

 

 

 

Making Your Dollar Count

Let’s face it, in this economy, your decision about where to spend your hard-earned dollar is more important than ever.  

 

 04_28_47-us-dollar-bills_web.jpg 

 

If you’re visiting this website, you have more than a passing interest in your health – you know that investing in yourself now – with quality exercise equipment – will pay off mightily in both the short term and long term.  Cardio and strength exercise helps you live life to the fullest –   as a healthy, active person who is not hampered by illness brought on by inactivity and overweight. 

 

 

Your health is your most important asset.  We can  guide you to the best equipment that will help you reach your fitness goals. We pride ourselves on more than 20 years supporting the fitness goals of the community, and offer the very best fitness lines around– with expertise and service that surpasses the rest. 

 

 

But we offer you even more than that.  Your dollar spent here gives you the added satisfaction of knowing that you are doing your part to help support your local Green Bay and Appleton economy in these tough times. 

 

 

Did you know that each dollar you spend at a local independent business returns three times more money than one spent on a chain?  That’s money that continues to circulate locally – at other local businesses – which in turn stimulates our economy.  Most of the money spent at chain stores circulates elsewhere – out of the city, and mostly out of state.   

 

And if you need more reasons to buy local, try these:   

 

  • Local businesses  put less demand on city services than most big box stores, and generate more tax revenue per sales dollar, which in turn helps keep your taxes lower.
  • Local businesses are healthier for the environment. Our stores are people-sized. They consume less land, and fewer utilities.
  • Local businesses build character. What makes a city special? It’s the unique businesses and people that make up its character. Big box stores multiply their similarity across the country – making one city look very much like another. Buy shopping local,  you  stand up for the unique character of your community.

 So come on in and check us out.  Do something good for your body, and for your community.  And make those hard-earned dollars count. Hope to see you soon.
