Journey Gym –the Fitness Laptop
The journey gym system retails for $2227 via Amazon! Journey Gym
Now, I can sit here trying to tell you about how great the Journey Gym is for circuit training and how it is capable of transforming where and when you work out, as you will always have a gym with you…but why don’t I let you watch this two minute video give you the details. The Video will answer every question and doubt you may have. Go ahead…I’ll work out on my Journey Gym while you watch…
The Chief Blonde Remarks: So now that you understand how easy to use, effective, and laptop-like the Journey Gym is, now I’ll tell you what I think of it–and more important, what my working-out husband thinks of it. I thought I would be confused by the initial set up. It just looked so organized and simple, I didn’t think I could figure it out. So I showed it to Walt–who can figure out most anything (without directions). So while he opened the Journey Gym and poked around, I read the 5 easy set-up steps. I gave Walt a couple of pointers (HAHA) and we had it set up in 1 minute–really!
So here is me giving it a try:
Teehee! Actually it is super easy to set up. You just open it, attach the legs, attach the handles to the level of resistance band and start working out, like I am in the picture above. The Journey Gym comes with a work out/training video–yipee! I am horrible at figuring how to work out myself. My husband feels that he could use it in place of the gym in the basement, when he travels or if he just wants to work out upstairs in front of the TV! He is an experienced gym rat so the 20 different resistance bands that deliver from 5 to 75 pounds of resistance (and are built right into the gym) are what made a difference in his mind. I am only 5′ 4″ so the design fits me well, but Walt is 6’6″ –he was surprised how the Journey Gym has adjustable handles (just one touch of a button) to quickly accommodate his height. The gym can accommodate two people working out at once and will hold up to 350 pounds. Walt is a mere 215 pounds–so I can’t be over 135 pounds if we were to use it at the same time…hmmm. Oh well, I don’t want to show him up, so we will probably use it separately. My absolute favorite part (other than the fact Walt loves it) is that it stows right into our entertainment center, where we can reach it easily for daily use! Women over 45 and their husbands (and younger women too) will love Journey Gym.
