To get started with this at-home fitness machine, you'll need to choose a location. In the location of your choice, you should have room to stretch out both arms beside you, and it should be neither too hot nor too cold for your comfort. If you think you might be unsteady on the machine at first, pick a location near a doorway or in front of a high-backed piece of furniture that you can hold onto. After you've chosen your location, set the machine down on its professional steel base.
Before you mount your machine, you'll need to select a resistance level by using the dial on its base (in the center). If you need any help doing this, consult the included owner's manual. Keep in mind that if you don't know what resistance level is appropriate for you, it's best to start with a lower one and change it later.
Next, it'll be time to mount your fitness machine. To do so, push one of the pedals all the way down with one foot and step on by putting your weight on that foot. Once your first foot is securely on, you can follow with the next one. Make sure your feet are resting near the middle of the pedals instead of hanging over either the front or back edge, or else you could fall off.
After you're on your machine securely, start moving your feet, going slowly at first. You'll notice that as you push the pedals, they'll make each foot go out to the side at the same time that it goes down. This will enhance your workout by increasing the number of muscles you're working, as you'll actually be performing two motions in one. As you move, if you're comfortable with this type of exercise, you can gradually pick up your pace.
When it's time to step off this machine, make sure one pedal is fully down and step off with the other foot. Following that, step off with the foot that's down.
The Lateral Thigh Trainer will tone your thighs, buttocks, stomach and even your arms without requiring you to do high-impact exercises that involve running or jumping up and down. It'll also enable you to go quickly enough to burn fat and calories and improve your cardiovascular fitness level at the same time. While you're on the machine, you may feel as if you're only working your legs and thighs, but you'll really be moving your entire body as you complete your workout.
Each Lateral Thigh Trainer offers seven resistance levels, ranging from easier to very difficult, so if at any point your workout becomes easy, you can turn up the resistance. Once you move up a level, the pedals on your machine will seem heavier and harder to move, while they'll move more freely with less work from you if you move down a level. People who have never exercised before, or who haven't exercised in years, should always try the lowest level first.
This at-home workout machine comes with a digital step counter which will let you see how many steps you're fitting in within a certain period of time. If you're not getting the results you want from the machine, you'll simply have to fit more steps in at the same resistance level to make yourself burn more calories and fat.
The pedals on each machine have been designed to prevent slipping, which will reduce the chances that you'll slip or fall off, although you still must be careful. If you wear shoes that are slippery and aren't very suitable for exercise, the anti-slip pedals won't be able to do much to counteract that.
The Lateral Thigh Trainer is compact enough for most users to carry on their own and will fit in a vehicle. Therefore, you'll be able to move yours from room to room in your home and bring it with you on vacation if you're traveling by car. It may be handy at a cottage where there's no gym in sight or at a hotel if you don't feel like venturing out of your room to the gym. This machine does not require electricity, so you won't have to worry about searching for an available outlet.
With each machine, you'll get a workout DVD that will offer you a guided step workout with a virtual instructor, plus a Powerhouse Food Plan that will assist you if you're watching what you eat.
The Lateral Thigh Trainer is suitable for people of various fitness levels. If you're fit enough to go out walking down the street, you'll be fit enough to use this machine. Anyone should consult a doctor before beginning a new exercise program, though, even people who have worked out extensively in the past.
Some users who work out with this fitness machine, especially very fit people, may feel like they're not using their arms enough. To remedy this issue, you can move your arms in any way you'd like while moving your legs on the pedals. You may want to swing them back and forth or up and down, moving one or both each time, as these movements won't be extreme enough to seriously mess with your balance. If you're a very athletic individual, you might even want to hold small dumbbells in your hands while doing this.
Under no circumstances should any other body part of yours, besides your feet, touch the foot pedals. It might be tempting to push them up and down with your arms or knees, but the machine hasn't been designed for this type of exercise, so it may not be safe.
It's acceptable for children to use this workout machine if their doctor has given their approval, but children should always be supervised by an adult while using any fitness machine. They generally aren't as coordinated as adults, and if left unsupervised, will be more likely to trip and fall or otherwise injure themselves than most adults.
