Here in Minnesota you do have to actually prepare for winter.

A New Year: the Perfect Time to Start a New You

It’s a brand new year! Although resolutions are all well and good, I am striving for more permanent changes in my life. There are many things that I want to get started now and continue through the entire year. Things like getting organized, cooking new things, and being the best version of myself.

One of the things that I know I need to work on to become the best version of myself is exercising…regularly. Not just the maybe once a week when I feel like it. Because let’s face it, I rarely feel like it.

I’m not a fitness expert, but Heartland America offers a variety of exercise equipment so that anyone can workout from the comfort of their own home.

I have compiled a variety of ideas for you, for your man, and for both of you. There’s no time like the present to get started on a healthier, happier you.

Women's Fitness Equipment
Sony Portable CD/Cassette Boombox, Ab Circle Pro, Women’s Hi-Tec Darwen Running Shoes, Step 360 Exercise with Cords.

Music always helps me get charged up for my workout. If you exercise at home, you can crank it up with the Sony Portable Boombox and never have to deal with headphones.

The Ab Circle Pro is a great way to get your upper, middle, and lower abs in shape and give you that lovely small waist you’ve always wanted. It’s simple and offers three levels of resistance so you can train at your own level of fitness.

Walking or running improves your whole body strength and endurance. Hi-Tec Darwen Running Shoes bring together quality and comfort to propel you further in your fitness goals with shock-absorbing soles and traction to keep you on the right path.

With the Step 360 Exercise Board you can get a full body workout. The adjustable air-filled chambers offer progressive resistance as your fitness level improves. The step board also interlocks with resistance cords to tone your arms, back and chest, and flip it over for a stable place to attain deep stretches.
