It’s that time again where you sit down, evaluate the past year, and think about ways to improve come January 1. Often times, these New Year’s resolutions involve getting in shape, eating better and having an overall healthier approach to your lifestyle.
Unfortunately, ambitions of going to the gym to run or lift weights often fizzle out before Spring. However, with an intentional purchase and the right mindset, you may be able to turn a workout resolution into a full fitness overhaul.
At Sears Hometown Store in Franklin, they are ready to help you start your new year exercising off right. They have a great selection of exercise equipment and sports gear at affordable prices. A wide variety of styles are on offer including treadmills, fitness and sport accessories, ellipticals, weights and stationary bikes to kick start a year of health.
Their website states that when looking for new equipment, whatever it may be, “come by and our professionally trained staff in Franklin can help you shop models according to price, condition, brand and style.”
Right now, they are having a huge end of year sale. There’s no better time to restart your fitness goals. Below is a selection of their highest rated equipment for your 2018 fitness goals and beyond:
This is Sears’ top elliptical seller. It is dependable with 20 levels of power incline, eight programs and a fitness tracking system. According to the website, it is also in tune with your natural motion. “Utilizing an oversized surface with a no-slip rubberized grip, pedals flow in an overlapping rotation and glide in a long, flat elliptical pattern to create a forward motion that mimics your natural stride,” the website states.
This treadmill delivers a total body workout with a unique CrossWalk Upper Body Resistance that helps to burn more calories and tone more muscle. It also features 16 workout apps, quickspeed controls and iPod/iPhone compatibility for all your music needs.
This rower is one of the highest rated pieces of workout equipment that Sears has to offer. For a less conventional workout, this is the way to go.
The S1RW is an air/magnetic rower with a padded handle and a long seat, making it user friendly for all. It features a wireless heart rate receiver with chest strap included and a smooth, 13 pound flywheel that provides a “natural feel and consistent momentum.”
“This upright, adjustable exercise bike combines value and versatility,” the website states. There are 22 preprogrammed workouts and 20 resistance levels. It is designed for home convenience and has easy to use features.
For the more practical, simplistic exerciser, this deluxe weight set is perfect. It is durable, versatile and brings convenience to your home workout.
The mini stepper is perfect for a quick, easy exercise that will yield noticeable results.
This resistance band is a great supplement to any workout. It is strong resistance and a convenient door attachment. It also comes with a pamphlet of suggested exercises.
Lastly, they have the classic exercise ball for the yogi inside of everyone. The ball helps to build “a powerful core to increase flexibility, coordination and balance.” It also features an instructional exercise chart.
