Journey Gym Review and Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity of getting a Journey Gym for review. The journey gym is a complete, lightweight, compact fitness system and it is intended to make it possible to bring your gym with you where ever you go, since it is basically as big as a briefcase.  That is a great concept, and for the ones that are not thinking on taking it everywhere, it allows it to be stored with ease when is not being used. I love the fact that is portable because that allows me to bring it with me to my girlfriend’s apartment and work out there without worrying if I forgot something I needed.  Everything is there and neatly kept when not in use.  

I also like that you can create an account online and that gives you access to online video workouts to get started right away and you can even create your own video routines with the available pre-recorded videos available online. You can even add your own music to the video, and also download it to your computer and burn a DVD.  The videos feature professional instructors guiding you step by step on how to do the exercises and it is almost like having your own personal trainer.

There are exercises for the whole body and also use it as step to workout cardio, and the best of all is that the workouts are short but still effective. You can do shoulder raises, back rows, bicep curls, triceps kickbacks, bench presses, side bends, crunches, squats and more.

The Journey Gym is perfect for someone with a busy life style. The journey gym is simple, convenient, and practical. With all that definitely there is not excuse to skip my workout, so that means consistency and well so far I am happy with the results. I have gained strength progressively and also muscle tone.

If you are seriously thinking on start exercising at home I would recommend the journey gym to you.

It comes with 30 resistance bands (five on each side plus ten additional bands) for a customizable resistance system of 5 to 75 pounds per side.  One set of adjustable handles so resistance only begins when you are in the correct position. Full set of legs which are used to raise the gym into a stair stepper for a full cardio workout.  A workout DVD specifically designed for the gym with a 5 minute set up video, a 10 minute circuit tone workout and a 20 minute circuit strength workout.
An online community at www.healthisajourney.com where you are able to create exercise videos, track your activity and nutrition, and share your progress with friends and family. 

When I first opened it looked very very extremely complex, but it's really simple to set up and use at the various resistance levels.

The Journey Gym can be purchased for a one-time payment of $299.00 (which is about 3 months of gym membership fees on average) or you can also purchase it in installments

"The installment payments option to purchase a journey gym, along with everything you need to start your health journey, leads to a full purchase of the product over a course of 5 payments of $49.95 once a month. The initial payment is $49.90 ($14.95 for the 30 day trial offering + $34.95 shipping & handling) and then 5 subsequent payments are just $49.95 each. Simply select this option on the installment payments page."

I don't know of any fitness equipment that is so complete and affordable.

Journey Gym has recently been given 5 star Rating from the American Council of Exercise.  This is a great honor because not many fitness products receive this rating. 

Lastly, just remember exercise ALONE is not the way to tone your body and look your best good nutrition is essential.  For that reason, Journey Gym wants to give five of my readers a Nutrition Guide written by Kim Lyons, their star trainer, so you can get started on the new you even before purchasing your Journey Gym open US ONLY. This guide has been given amazing reviews as the tool to support you on your weightloss/fitness program.
