Exercising isn’t just an item on your to-do list, but a pathway to a more balanced and productive lifestyle. The impacts of physical activity on your body and mind have been studied for decades, and embracing fitness is an undeniably worthy cause.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that a single workout can have immediate benefits like better sleep, less anxiety, and reduced blood pressure. The mental health benefits outlast your sweat session by improving your brain function and reducing the risk of depression. As if happiness isn’t enough of a selling point, exercise can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and various types of cancers in the long-term. Case in point: we should all be sparing 20 to 30 minutes a day to work out.
An interdisciplinary fitness routine can help make your gym time fresh and effective. Yoga, cardio, lifting and high-intensity interval training are just a few types of workout styles to embrace for a balanced program. Whether you’re building your at-home studio or joining a local class, be equipped to put your fittest foot forward in 2021. We’ve rounded up where to find state-of-the-art equipment and classes at Aventura Mall. Now get to work!
Technology is challenging norms and innovating how we move our bodies. Tonal, one of the most unique fitness products on the market, has managed to create a patented digital weight system in a compact format. The impressive machine offers up to 200 pounds of resistance using magnets and electricity.
There’s no longer a need to rack weights or store bulky equipment in your home. The 24” touchscreen display hangs on the wall and allows users to follow along with Tonal coaches. Try Pilates, barre, yoga and kickboxing on top of weightlifting for a dynamic workout schedule. Staying on top of your progress is made easier with Tonal’s performance tracker.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fittest of them all? Known for its cult-following of yoga pant enthusiasts, the activewear brand has taken stake in the fitness equipment industry. NBC News named Mirror the best compact home gym equipment with live classes. Transitioning from minimalist home decor to a one-of-a-kind workout, Mirror is stylish and sweat inducing. The ability to take live classes will make you feel like you’re back in the studio. Users can choose from more than 50 class genres, offering 5 to 60-minute sessions, at all levels.
One of the most interesting elements of Mirror is the one-on-one training it provides to fitness enthusiasts in need of guidance and accountability. With hundreds of five-star reviews, it’s a hot commodity to own in 2021.
Peloton isn’t just an exercise brand; it’s a lifestyle. With more than 1.2 million followers on Instagram, the company has lit a match and set the fitness world ablaze since its founding in 2012. Peloton riders and runners have found community in shared classes with energizing and themed music playlists, following their favorite instructors like celebrities and boasting about their workout streaks.
The new Peloton Bike+ has upped the ante on the original model, offering a swivel touchscreen that offers 360º movement. While the brand has always offered a dynamic range of workouts outside of its cycle options, bike owners can now complement their rides with a full body experience from the bike’s new monitor.
While the new Bike+ might have your attention, don’t sleep on getting the Peloton Tread. Runner’s World rated the treadmill highly, noting the “running surface has one of the most realistic feeling belts we’ve ever run on.” Experience guided runs built directly for your goals, whether you’re focused on increasing core strength or building your stamina for an upcoming marathon.
