Carbo San Lucas, Mexico

This is one of my iFit incline training workouts.  Not my best.  I was tired and I did this a 10pm.  Too late!!  30% incline just about killed me. But I got it done and that’s all that matters 🙂 Want to learn more about Cabo San Lucas, Mexico?  Click on the link below the picture.  It’s a beautiful area.  I may have to take a vacation there one day!!

NordicTrack X9i Incline Trainer

The NordicTrack X9i Incline Trainer is their #1 selling treadmill. NordicTrack first started selling Incline Trainers six years ago, and since then they continually have grown in popularity. The reason for their popularity is that Incline Trainers are very effective in burning calories, losing weight and getting in shape.

For those not familiar with the Incline Trainer, it is basically a treadmill that inclines to extreme levels of up to 40%.  You generally use these machines for walking because of the extreme incline, although they can also handle running.  The advantages to this unique treadmill concept are…

  1. You can get the same intense cardio workout from running while walking.  It is similar to hiking up a steep mountain.
  2. Since you’re walking and not running there is less stress to your joints and back.

However, many individuals use the Incline Trainers for running.  With the release of the NordicTrack X9i Incline Trainer you have the benefits of the previous models. In addition you get an extra long 62″ treadbelt, which is adequate for a runner’s long stride.  With the X9i you can either walk at steep inclines, or run at a more level incline.  Of course, if you are a fanatic you can run at steep inclines, but probably not for long.

I pretty much am walking my workouts.  5 knee surgeries, two foot/ankle surgeries and a double fusion in my lower back keep me from running at this time.  My times are slow, but trust me when you hit some of these high incline percentages you have no choice but to slow down your speed (unless your a super athlete who runs hills for training :).  I wasn’t going to post my times and distances since I will admit, I’m a bit embarrassed by them.  But I have to start somewhere and all I want is to see these numbers improve.  I am only in competition with myself after all 🙂
