It seems that our lives are always busy. We know that it is important to get exercise but often can’t find the time. When we do, we try to squeeze in too much into our workouts and end up straining our joints, tiring ourselves out, and generally making exercise a tough sell for ourselves in the future. But what if we could avoid the joint strain and still get the full-body workout that we need? And what if we could do so while on the way to work or while running our normal errands? If that sounds intriguing, let’s talk about the Me-Mover FIT and the Me-Mover SPEED (2021).
The Me-Mover FIT (2.3)
The Me-Mover ties in the benefits of a step machine that you can ride outdoors for a workout that is not only more than sufficient, but with the added benefit of soaking up the sun and breathing some fresh air. It combines the workout for muscles affected during cycling and running, as well as back and chest muscles. That means that your heart pumps, boosting your heart rate, which in turn burns calories.
The ride is like a combination of a bike, a scooter, skis, and a walk, minus the impact on the joints, or in other words a low-impact, ergonomic stepping machine on wheels. You are on wheels, yet the motion of propelling yourself forward is actually based on you stepping into the depressible pedals, which simulate a walk.
The Me-Mover is composed of an alloy aluminum blend which makes the vehicle both light in weight, yet sturdy in terms of strength. The manually operated Me-Mover’s speed and capability of distance coverage do not rely on any electronic bits, controlled by only how fast and far your body can take it. The more you use it, the more fun you will have.
The Me-Mover offers a safe, stable ride with a high position that yields additional visibility. The handlebars adjust to your preferred height manually. The handlebar grips have been redesigned for additional comfort, and the CST tires, resulting in a simple and smooth ride, with a clean and operational braking system. Taking turns is a breeze, with the whole machine suitable for shifting laterally to help with easy turning radius achievements.
While the Me-Mover comes preassembled, an assembly tool kit is included when it is shipped. However, if you want to get it from place to place, you do not need to disassemble the product every time (that would be crazy). In fact, the Me-Mover folds in, letting you pull it or push it, much like you would a dolly or a cart. When unfolded, the dimensions are 108cm X 118cm X 59cm (42” X 46” X 23”), while in folded, portable form, the dimensions are 103cm X 50cm X 60cm (51” X 19” X 23”).
Because you need to hydrate when you exercise, when you receive the Me-Mover product, you will also get a bottle holder to attach to your machine. The Me-Mover is available in black, white, red, orange, and blue colors, with some premium color options involving glossy paint coverage with polished welding nodes on the rear frame.
The Me-Mover Speed
If you are looking for a workout, but one that will increase your ability to go fast and easily make fast turns, you might want to consider the Me-Mover Speed, the newest member of the Me-Member product line.
Much like the Me-Mover FIT, the SPEED ride is smooth, providing a high-intensity workout, that doesn’t induce joint strain, yet burns calories at an efficient rate by working out 6 to 8 major muscle groups.
The Me-Mover Speed sports 16-inch trim tires, upgraded rims, and improved transmission and sport-suited handlebars. The design allows for a ride that is able to gain higher speeds, yet handles curves and turns at those speeds in an easier fashion.
It offers all of the same conveniences as its Me-Mover FIT brethren. You can easily fold it and take it anywhere. The rider propels it, which lets him or her control the speed and distance, all while delivering the exercise. All of this while being able to serve as a functional vehicle that can take you places at higher speeds, letting you cover more distance with the same basic workout levels.
