The Cardio Twister™ is an exercise machine that combines cardiovascular and strength training all in one. It is a kind of step machine with a twist. Compact and sturdy, it can be used in almost any room of the house.
The Cardio Twister™ differs from traditional stepping machines in that not only does it move legs up and down, it also moves them in and out. This motion works the entire leg, including the outer thigh area and those dreaded inner thighs. The twisting motion focuses on the core – shoulders, chest, back and abdominals – even those hard to reach oblique muscles which trims your waist. It even tightens the buttocks and arm region while adding a cardiovascular workout.
A cardiovascular or aerobic workout utilizes large muscle groups and helps strengthen the heart and lungs while burning calories. The Cardio Twister™ gives you that heart rate raising workout while simultaneously toning the torso, arms and legs. It helps you lose weight and strengthen muscles to achieve that sculpted physically fit look.
But is it worth it? Priced just under $200 US Dollars (USD), the Cardio Twister™ is yours to keep, unlike that gym membership with its monthly or yearly renewal fees. It comes with a 30-day guarantee of “lose 10 inches in ten days or your money back.” It also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee and warranty.
The Cardio Twister™ boasts roomy non-slip pedals and comfortably padded handrails. It’s sturdy, steel base that can hold up to 250 pounds. You also get things like express meal planners, digital training computer and a ten-day diet plan along with a workout routine.
Losing weight and gaining a trimmer, toner body can only be accomplished with a regular healthy diet along with regular exercise. Just using the Cardio Twister™ and not watching what you eat may help you lose a little and tone a little, but it is with the combination of diet and exercise where you see the best results.
Before attempting any fitness equipment, you should consult with your primary care physician to make sure you are healthy enough for a vigorous exercise routine. Caution should be used with certain conditions, such as chronic back pain, as the Cardio Twister™ may put unnecessary strain on the back through its twisting and stepping motions. Monitoring your heart rate during physical activity is important to get the most gain without overtaxing your heart.
It is a fact that increasing muscle helps you burn more calories in a more efficient manner, so performing cardiovascular and strengthening is a wise decision. It is also a known fact that many people give up their exercise goals because of boredom. The Cardio Twister™ can help make your workout more fun.
