We’re midway into January 2018. Hopefully, you have set (and kept) your New Year’s resolutions. If you haven’t made any yet, it’s time to do so. There’s nothing like taking a moment to pause and hit the reset button on your life as we move further into this new and refreshing year. And there's no better way to reset than with The Maxiclimber Sport, at-home vertical climber. This is one of my favorite, at-home fitness machines that will assist you on your way to a healthy and fit lifestyle.
The Maxiclimber Sport is exclusive to QVC and I’m thrilled that I get to bring it to you live, on-air this year. This piece of equipment is your New Year’s Resolution.
YouGov NY tells us that the top 5 New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 are as follows (respondents were allowed to include more than one in their reports):
It should come as no surprise that diet and exercise are at the top of the list. So what does that mean for you? It means that you need to commit to a lifestyle change this year if you want life-changing results. A nourished mind and body, and the right fitness equipment have to be the root to your approach rather than a quick fix diet or workout that will wither over time. Simply trimming off dead branches won’t guarantee a healthy tree if the root has gone bad.
The Maxiclimber Sport is a low-impact exercise machine made to mimic climbing or hiking. It gives you a way to get a complete, all-over body workout, combining cardio and toning from the comfort of your own home in just 5-10 minutes a day. Yes, you will work your arms, your legs, your core, your glutes, your shoulders--your entire body all at the same time! WearAction.com stated, "A 200-pound person can burn up 850 calories in a one-hour session with a vertical climber" . So with every fluid motion, you are targeting all the muscle groups at once and torching calories as you go.
This is why I am so passionate about The Maxiclimber Sport. As a personal trainer, I recommend it highly. If you are new to working out, trying to figure out how to get started and what you are supposed to do is overwhelming. With The Maxiclimber Sport, you do not have to think about what muscle groups you need to work or tone. You just have to step on and it takes care of the work for you through its innovative design.
With the Maxiclimber, you are getting an effective and efficient workout. And secondly, you will see results in little time. In fact, we recommend starting with as little as ten minutes a day! And the more you use it, the greater the results you will see. There’s nothing that’s more motivating and encouraging than seeing results! This is when the fear starts to dissipate from your eyes and when the breakthrough really begins.
STEP 1: CONQUER YOUR FEAR and YOUR WALLET
Conquering fear and frustration is half the battle. I know many of you have a fear of the gym and I completely understand. I have written articles on this subject alone. Basically, this is your fear of the gym: fear of the equipment, fear of looking foolish, out of place, or just not getting with the program. On top of that, gym memberships are costly.
While on a much lesser scale, this same fear can apply to home gym equipment. Many people get discouraged because the equipment alone can look intimating and the price tags can be exorbitant. Some at-home vertical climbers can cost you well over $2,000! There are pulleys and straps and cords for who-knows-what. Somehow, you have two left over springs in the box (How did that happen?). Maybe there is a funny looking bar in the middle of the apparatus and you don’t have a clue whether you are supposed to sit on it or swing from it! I get it. It’s enough to make you give up. But don’t! Half the battle and very first step of your workout is knowing that you are making a wise purchase at under $150 and knowing all the parts and adhering to correct exercise form.

STEP 2: BREAKING IT DOWN
The beauty of The Maxiclimber Sport is that it comes almost entirely pre-assembled. You just have to pop in the handlebars, attach the calorie counter, and screw in the two bottom bases to the unit and secure with the safety pin. Done. Now it’s time to get acquainted with what you are getting:
STEP 3: STEP ON AND GO!
The Maxiclimber Sport is made for all ages, stages, body types, and fitness levels and can hold up to 240 lbs. Park it in front of your television, put it in your office, your bedroom, or wherever you are most likely to use it. Simply fold it up and store in a closet or under the bed when not in use.
This is for you! I like to say that if you can walk up or down the steps in your home, then you can embark on this fitness journey. I especially love this for beginners because of the confidence gained once you start seeing results. It’s the breakthough that leads you to challenge yourself more because you will feel better and more confident in your body.
All Fitness Levels
While I love the Maxiclimber for beginners, this is for all fitness levels, beginners and advanced fitness levels alike. First of all, I love that the Maxiclimber uses your own body weight. This lets YOU be in control of your workout rather than your workout controlling you! You control your pace, your speed and your workout and therefore, effectively tone and tighten without putting too much pressure on your lower body. There are also three levels of resistance through our Integrated Elastic Assistance System which allow you to adjust the resistance level for an easier or harder workout.
Kids. Yes, kids can use this! Of course, make sure to watch over them and that they are safely and appropriately using the equipment. My eight-year-old daughter loves The Maxiclimber Sport. It’s a great way to get her to workout with me and get her off the electronics! Kids love it because it’s fun.
Let this be your #NoFearNewYear. Be on your way to a healthy and fit lifestyle. Commit to change and do it wisely with the best vertical climber on the market at a steal of a price.
