Automatic Folding Treadmills

If you see yourself hitting the ground running in 2020, Sunny Health & Fitness has several treadmills that can accommodate your running, walking, or jogging programs. Our team especially likes treadmills because they serve as exercise alternatives during the colder winter months. Even though they’re convenient, these portable cardiovascular machines are the perfect mix between style and power.

Rowing Machines

Versatile In-Home Magnetic and Water Rowers

Rowing is an effective activity that you can perform to build a strong cardiovascular system while you develop major muscle groups throughout your entire body. If you’re a hard-core rowing enthusiast, you’ll love the smooth, consistent, and authentic experience that the Obsidian Surge Water Rower can offer. Quickly rising as a staff favorite, this machine has an all-inclusive performance monitor that will help you track your performance with a built-in 500-meter race mode. You can easily pick up the pace and challenge your effort with the integrated Tabata HIIT training feature.

If you’re concerned about noise in shared spaces, consider a machine with a virtually quiet belt-drive mechanism, such as the SF-RW5885. This machine is designed for the modest home gym user with its compact design and simple operation.

Heavy-Duty Stepping Machine

Don’t let the space saving size of the Versa Stepper fool you. This portable machine is equipped with a powerful hydraulic resistance system that will have your glutes, quads, and calves burning in a few short minutes. In addition to the cardio stepping action, attached resistance bands provide you with the opportunity to incorporate upper body and core strengthening movements that can be performed during stepping motion for a better full-body workout.

Assisted Squat Machine

Complete With Several Workouts

Develop strength with this one-of-a-kind home squat machine. Strengthen your lower body, shoulders, arms, and back, on this exerciser that promotes compound movement (two or more muscle groups working cohesively). Activating groups of muscles together requires more muscle activation, so you’ll burn more calories. With 3 adjustable resistance bands, you’ll easily intensify your workout and develop muscle groups.

Upright Row-N-Ride®

We love this product because it has our best selection of unique squat exercise intervals that will challenge you for weeks.


Compact Ellipticals

Convenient Cardiovascular Machines

If you are concerned about the limited space you have to workout and you need more comfort and support, consider a mini elliptical exerciser. These products not only come equipped with a convenient carrying handle that makes transportation easy, they can be used while you recline on your favorite chair or sofa. With wide supportive foot plates, and smooth magnetic resistance, you can enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle in the comfort of your own home.
