As the clock ticked to 2012, many of us pledged the same resolution we do each year and that’s to get in shape, lose the extra pounds from the holidays, and really, just lead an overall healthier lifestyle. With the help of a few key appliances, this year could be a lot easier to keep your resolution and stay motivated and all without even visiting a gym! Check out these products that will aid in your transition to a healthier lifestyle in the New Year: 1. Kettler Polo M Exercise Bike By investing in a Kettler exercise bike, you’ll be able to work out on your own time and in the comfort of your own home. Exercising at home is great because it’s so much more convenient than driving to the gym and you can even catch a couple of episodes of your favorite TV show while burning a few hundred calories. This model is perfect to track progress to your goal with the easy-to use display showing your calories burned, distance traveled and even your heart rate during the workout. 2. Deni 3 Tier Digital Food Steamer – Stainless Steel A food steamer is a great way to get started with a healthy cooking routine. Not only can steaming retain 50% more vitamins and nutrients than boiling, but another bonus is you can prepare your entire meal with just the use of this product. The extra tiers on the Deni model allow you to steam everything from rice to seafood and, of course, vegetables all at the same time. 3. Cuisinart Smart Power 7-Speed Electric Blender No kitchen would be complete without a multi-speed blender. The Cuisinart 7-speed electric blender is powerful enough to mix, chop, crush or pulse whatever healthy meal or snack you’re making. Smoothies and protein shakes will be a beneficial addition to your new lifestyle and a breeze for this powerful blender. I wish you the best of luck in staying motivated and reaching your goal this year — I know you can do it!
