What is a Ski Trainer?
A ski Ergometer is a cardio machine that allows you to burn fat quickly. Especially ski fans can use this device during the summer break to prepare for the coming season at home or at the gym.
What does training with the Ski Ergometer look like?
You can do the exercises with the Ski Ergometer either sitting down or as fast skiing in standing position. The advantage of the training is the high calorie burn. This means that such a cardio workout is very suitable for losing weight and boosting the metabolism in addition to strength training. It is also a good way to strengthen endurance and muscles.
All major muscle groups are trained, such as the arms, shoulders and the entire back muscles as well as the abdominal muscles and the posterior.
During a workout with the Ski Ergometer, pull the two grips down with the arms close to the body, pulling the shoulders together. Kneel down and stretch your bottom backwards. It is important to keep your back straight and to bend your knees slightly outwards, but not beyond the tips of your feet.
For whom is a training with the Ski Trainer suitable?
For beginners as well as advanced skiers it is important to increase the training slowly & to regenerate sufficiently after the training. However, if you still want to train with the Ski Ergometer for several days in a row, you can also do this while sitting down. This is easy on the legs and only the upper body is challenged. In general, however, a training session of 5 to 10 minutes is sufficient to really work out. This is repeated about two to three times a week.
In general, if you have back or knee problems, you should consult your doctor!

What is an Extreme Rower?
Training with the Extreme Rower, even though you are sitting, is a very demanding workout, because the whole body is in motion. If you want to lose weight, the Rower is even better than the Ski Trainer, because you can burn up to 10,000 calories in just 10 minutes of intensive training.
Just like the Ski Trainer, rowing requires all major muscle groups such as shoulders, back, abdomen, legs, arms & bottom.
Who is a training with the Extreme Rower suitable for?
A workout with the Extreme Rower is suitable for anyone who wants to burn a lot of calories and train their whole body at the same time. In order to be able to train especially effective and varied with the rowing ergometer, you should consider interval training. Interval training is a change between fast and slow training phases. This means, for example, that you warm up loosely and then work out to the full, only to row loosely again so that you can alternate between the load and recovery phases.
If you already have an Extreme Rower at home, daily rowing is possible. It's best if you train for ten minutes in the morning, at noon and in the evening. Otherwise, 3 times a week for 10 minutes each is a good amount of work.
What does training with the Extreme Rower look like?
Because the training happens in a sitting position, you push off with your feet and pull the bar up to under your chest. You then move back and forth with your back straight. Your stomach is tense the whole time.
In general: If you already have known back problems, you should consult your doctor.

What is an Assault Air Bike?
In CrossFit as well as in professional sports this hardcore cardio device is an essential tool. It is one of the toughest training devices on the market and helps keep the whole body in shape.
How do you train with the Assault Air Bike?
The hand grips of the bicycle ergometer are dynamically designed like those of a crosstrainer and you work out in the same way with your arms and legs. In order to build up even more strength during training, you have the option of training arms and legs separately. For this purpose, two struts are attached to the front of the device on which you can rest your feet. The fact that the Assault Air Bike's Dual Action System requires you to push, pull and pedal at the same time makes the workout particularly intense and demanding.
Especially practical is the fact that there are 8 preset training programs installed in the Air Bike.

When doing the exercise it is important to keep your back straight and adjust the saddle to hip height to avoid a crooked back during the exercise.
