The first advanced exercise Mike demonstrates on the Total Gym is one he learned from fitness trainer and long time Total Gym user Todd Durkin’s video. The exercise he demonstrates is known as the “Iron Cross” or “Snow Angel.” It’s a great workout for the upper body including the back, shoulders, chest and core.

Mike says that he didn’t start with the advanced series, but rather had to work his way up in the program. Even though the Total Gym opens the door to advanced workouts it still remains very simple to use. The Total Gym is versatile and makes it easy to go from level one to the advanced workout series – just by following simple, easy-to-understand workout plans with videos and a deck of Total Gym exercise cards that can be mounted. Mike says the Total Gym gave him all the tools he needed to start a workout plan, even as an overweight beginner. Now he’s on to the advanced level and says that the same can do the done by you. By the way, Mike lost over 100lbs.

Challenging yourself on your fitness journey is extremely important. A lot of people of people tend to get discouraged early on in their exercise routines because of difficulty or the workouts being too strenuous. Do not let these factors deter you. The beauty of proper exercise is that it works. If you can make it through these moments you will get stronger and when you get stronger, you will be able to continuously challenge yourself to take your workouts to the next level.

We would like to thank Mike for motivating us once again to challenge ourselves and take our fitness to the next level using the Total Gym. If you would like to purchase a Total Gym to either start or continue your fitness journey, please visit us at Total Gym Direct.
