I chose to invest in myself. Time management is a topic most of us deal with and are eager to adopt ways to save time and energy that will allow us to make room for everything we need to do. I find that when cuts need to be made to my schedule, it usually is my wants, like adequate time for exercise, that get the cut. Making time for workouts at a local gym or fitness club, while offering many added benefits like social interaction and variety, also have a heavy cost regarding time; commute, parking, check-in/out, and waiting for equipment availability. To fit in the amount of time involved regularly is often just not doable.  


My solution has been to invest in aids to have quality exercise time at home, that way ensuring I get in my workout while cutting out the added time for the gym.  I do try to attend the gym once a week for a workout, gaining variety, social interaction, trainer coaching and checking out what is new.   


I took some time looking for a home gym that would fit my space, budget, and need, the market is varied and extensive. After only a short time I was sold on the Bowflex HVT, Hybrid Velocity Training.  Packed full of features:
