Product Feature: Quick Adjust Suspension Cross Trainer

When I was approached to do a feature on some home fitness gear, I jumped at the opportunity.  My thoughts at the time were, a new year-a new me…I can do this!  Yeah, right.  What was I thinking?  I haven’t been inside a gym since my kickboxing days pre-kids (8+ years ago!)  But now that I’ve received my sample, there’s no turning back.  I must do this!


Sportline’s Quick Adjust Suspension Cross Trainer allows you to target every major muscle group for the upper and lower body.  You can modify exercise intensity by quickly adjusting the rope length with innovative Lock-n Load Quick Adjust Pods.  A foot cradle adds a dynamic element to your workout with static and sliding actions so you can change lower body  exercises quickly and easily.  By customizing the rope length you can also change intensity levels and move from one exercise to the next to improve your athletic performance and agility while burning calories and improving your cardiovascular fitness.  The system includes two Quick Adjust pods with suspension rope, a door  anchor, two handles, two foot straps, a foot cradle and an instructional DVD.  The system mounts to standard doors without screws or drilling, so you can  easily set up, store and travel with this quality home gym unit.

In addition to the DVD and equipment, there is also a printed workout guide.  I like this because I actually don’t have an ideal set-up where I can watch the DVD at the same time as I use the Cross Trainer.  I can hang this up on a nearby wall and have a constant reminder of what I should be doing…what I need to be doing!  The equipment doesn’t take up that much space and you’ll always have the convenience to workout in the comfort of your own home, on your own time.  Available through Sportline’s website, the Cross Trainer retails for $59.99 – a very reasonable investment if you ask me.

    This looks like it’s easy to use and convenient in terms of set up. It’s also ideal for New Year’s resolutions when it comes to getting healthy!

    I’ve used it a couple times but am embarrassed to say that since I started a new job a few months back, I stopped. Things are easing up a bit so I hope to start a routine soon!
