Product Features

The Horizon Fitness AT1501 Ascent Trainer is an elliptical machine for your home gym. It features an adjustable incline and variable stride length so you can control more about your workout. For those who are just starting out, you can keep the stride length short and the incline low, and as you get used to it challenge yourself with steeper inclines and longer strides. In addition to providing you with a more effective cardio workout, these options also enable you to choose which muscle groups in the lower body you focus on toning and strengthening. With no include, you are basically walking or running, while at a steep incline, you are basically climbing steps, making use of various muscle groups. There is also a heart monitor built in, so holding on to the machine in the correct place will track your pulse and give you a good idea as to whether or not you are moving quickly enough to effectively burn calories.

The Horizon Fitness AT1501 Ascent Trainer is a good piece of machinery for people who have the money and the room in their home to allow for its use. However, simply having a piece of home gym equipment will not be enough for weight loss. Even using the machine on a regular basis will not produce weight loss, if you are not eating right. You must not only use the machine nearly every day for at least 20 to 30 minutes, you must opt for a healthy, reduced calorie diet if you want to see results. It is also ideal to use a proven weight loss supplement, either a fat burner or appetite suppressant to help accelerate your weight loss efforts.
