Do you think the fitness regime and equipment is only required for sports-person - Or it is meant for all ?
In particular, I appreciate your statement, under the first sub-heading, Gadgets and Gears for Health and Fitness Freak, that "Personally, I believe there are no short-cuts for gaining fitness or losing fat, a regular regime of controlled diet, exercise and yoga can make a huge difference."
It's nevertheless fun to have an indoor gym -- spaced alongside an indoor pool ;-D -- for those days and times when exercise can't be outside because it's dark or it's too inclement.
How long would be the warranties on fitness regime-related equipment?
The sad truth is fitness equipment in most cases becomes a high tech hanger before it is moved to balcony or out of the house. Too many of us believe we can be fit only if we posses the latest and the most advanced gadgets although folk in best shape is folk who spends a lot of time outside, in nature, living the real life.
I was in best shape in days when I was jogging every morning, no matter the weather but I got few colds in winters. In these cases home gym would be probably more suitable for me so I could stay fit even when i couldn't make my usual training. So in my opinion treadmills, ecliptic trainers and similar stuff should be viewed only as complimentary part of overall fitness regime and only when we have already established some kind of working discipline.
