Fitness Equipment Review: Marcy WM1509 Multigym


For those of us intending to start an exercise regimen, it’s important to understand that any successful program has two essential components: cardiovascular training, also called “cardio,” and strength training, also called “weight training.” For cardio, exercise that raises the heart rate and keeps it in a particular “zone” is the most effective type. For strength training to be successful, you must exercise against some type of resistance, such as weights. There are countless strength training exercises available, many of which require specialized equipment. Fortunately, there is fitness equipment called a “multi-gym” that allows you to perform a wide range of strength exercises, many of which previously required separate machines, on a single machine. Here’s some info on a multi-gym we quite like: the Marcy WM1509.
