Baseball's Opening Day is here and that means that summer is right around the corner. For players and fans alike, Opening Day is a blank slate, a new chance to forget about last season and start fresh, especially if you're a Cubs fan like about half the staff here at Safer Wholesale. The other half of us are White Sox fans and still feeling superior since the 2005 World Series.
Baseball players have spent the last six weeks getting in shape for the upcoming season, and though most of us don't need to be in peak physical conditon like professional athletes, it couldn't hurt to follow their lead and start getting into shape for the summer. Give yourself your own blank slate, forget about winter's indulgences, and take Opening Day as inspiration to start working out - summer will be here before you know it!
Whether you're looking to build muscle endurance like a pitcher, or bulk up like a major league home run slugger, or just want to look good at the beach or lounging by the pool, there are workouts and equipment for every fitness need. Elliptical machines and treadmills give a great cardio vascular workout, help burn calories for weight loss, and when used for extended sessions, help build endurance. Dumbbells, chin up bars, and ab chairs are great for building muscle and increasing strength. Whatever your fitness goals, you'll be able to find specialized workout routines and fitness equipment designed to target your problem areas.
You can even find workout equipment designed especially for kids, to help get young baseball players into great shape for the upcoming Little League season. Studies have shown that children develop good life long exercise habits when they grow up in households where an emphasis is placed on physical fitness, with families that engage in physical activity together. The best thing about home workout equipment is that you can even put it in front of the TV and watch the game while you get in shape. So get off the couch, get your gear, and get in shape for a great summer!
