Assault AirBike & AirRunner: Minimalist Cardio Equipment
Gaining in popularity over the last decade, CrossFit® gyms are popping up everywhere, but what if you could make a CrossFit-style workout space in your own home? Priding itself on its minimalist nature, some may not consider a treadmill or bike as a part of a CrossFit workout, but the Assault Fitness AirBike and AirRunner are the perfect fit to complete your in-home session.
If you’ve ever tried an Assault AirBike you’ll know what we mean when people frequently have a love-hate relationship with them. They work so well (love), while pushing you to your max (hate). The AirBike will help you stay motivated throughout your whole HIIT workout. You can do the hard-hitting pre-programmed Tabata interval workouts or build your own workout based on calories, distance, time, or heart rate. With a 27-inch steel fan that provides unlimited resistance and the ability to pedal, push, and pull for a full-body engagement, the AirBike delivers an unparalleled workout experience.
The Assault AirRunner is another great addition to your HIIT workouts. This treadmill is motorless and self-powered so that it packs a powerful punch in a small package. True to its name – it feels like you’re running on air. With no maximum speed, you can work out as hard as you want and change speeds at will. It is sturdy and durable. Built with a steel frame, and it remains the lightest treadmills of its kind, making it easy to maneuver around your workout space without having to deal with finding a power source.
Adding Apps to Kickstart Your HIIT Workouts
One of the reasons people pay upwards of $50 to drop in at a studio that focuses on high-intensity workouts, is the motivation and guidance provided by the in-facility coaches. You can experience a top-quality workout from the comfort of your personal gym and bring that guidance home by incorporating specific training apps using your smartphone, tablet, or connected TV.
Some running apps that work well with interval training on the Precor treadmills are Nike+® Running, Couch to 5K®, Runtastic® Pro, and Strong Runner. While some of these apps do have a small monthly charge, this solution is still more economical and flexible than committing to a large monthly membership fee and contract.
