PowerBlocks
We’ve got these and they’re good. But… if you have the space, we’d opt for multiple dumbbell sets.

If you don’t have the space, then we recommend the Powerblocks. You can read more about that here and a comparison between PowerBlocks and Bowflex.

PowerBlock Stand
(optional; just makes it easier to change and grab); however, in about the same space, you can get a dumbbell A-frame that can hold 5 sets of dumbbells. We favor that as the most efficient for workouts as there’s no down time or hassle in changing locking in/out the different weight levels.

Beyond that we favor the elliptical because we can bike, walk, jog and run outside. The cardio piece that simulates a different kind of cardio is the elliptical, plus it’s overall kinder and gentler to anyone suffering from knee, back or joint pain.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Elliptical
We have a Precor Elliptical similar to this one.
