Our Favorite Exercise Equipment

Popular equipment in most gyms are the treadmill, the elliptical machine and the recumbent bike. How does this compare with the Oakmont Fitness Center users and what is the most popular exercise equipment here?

A survey of 70 people, about equally divided between men and women, was conducted. The question posed, ”What is the one piece of equipment that you feel provides the most physical benefits for you?” The number one choice was, the envelope please, the elliptical trainer, including the elliptical with the arm pulls, with 16 votes. Followed closely in second place with 14 votes , was the treadmill. The recumbent bike, the recumbent bike with arm pulls, and the stationery bike, my personal favorite, was favored by 7 people. Almost all the other equipment was picked by someone, which included the inversion board, rowing machine, lat pull, cross pull, fan bike flex rider, ab roller, free weights, stretching area, fly machine, sit reflex, sitting leg press, nautilus personal circuit, balance equipment, stationary bike and 2 enthusiastic votes for the wobbler {body vibrator}. Lastly, 3 people responded that all the equipment was equally beneficial. This small sampling demonstrates there is a piece of equipment at the Fitness Center for everyone. What is yours? See you at the gym.
