  1. I am a big fan of the elliptical, it gives me the Cardio boost but not quite as tough as the traditional treadmill. I do use the stair master from time to time, it definitely builds up the legs. Weights are great when I’m looking to build muscle, but I tend to stay away when I’m working on my Cardio. Thank you for sharing, this is great information! 

  2. Wow, I have never heard of the stair Master before but it is a good product that I will really like to make use of looking at the fact that it works really well. I must say that it is really good to see that you have shared great fitness equipments that I can make use of for my cardiovascular system. I am going to be doing more work outs now. Thanks a lot for sharing this. Cheers.

    1. Hi Henderson.  Actually I had a  lot of trouble trying to find a good picture of a stair master even though I have used one in the past, so I found a couple in a local gym and just took my own picture of them.

  3. Now I see how important jogging can be for the sake of the heart and when it goes down into equipment, we use the treadmill which happens to be a one of the most common equipments in any gym at all. Helping the heart stay healthy should be our priority as a fault fo its importance in our existence. Also these mini gym equipment is another wonderful one that I look forward to adding to the one’s in my house. Beat regards.

    1. Thank you for your observations Benson.  

      Yes you are right about our heart needing to be a priority in our exercise regiment.  I have so appreciated the fitness trainer that I have promoted on this website and now wear everyday, as a means of helping to monitor that.

  5. First of all I’m a 100% workout men, and if there is something that I love is running outside, In forest beach… but since I have moved to Canada we have 6 month of snow and I can’t run anymore like before and I feel very bad, and the fact of reading your article with explaining the importance of that for our heart and all disease we can get if we’re not doing cardio exercises make me scare, I will try to have a treadmill and give a look of this product.

  6. Wow, these are very good exercise pieces of equipment that even I can say are really great for cardio as well. When we were thought about the cardio, we were told that it involves all the mechanisms of the body, the full-body metabolism. I see that you have shared something awesome concerning this. I really admire that. Personally, which of these do you see as the cheapest that one can acquire quickly.

    1. Thanks John for your contributions here.  

      To answer your question i have found that Amazon probably has the cheapest prices and the fastest delivery on any exercise equipment.  You might want to check it out.

  7. Cardiovascular Disease can control our so many activities we get into because when the heart is taken control of, we be some slaves to whatever have conquered it. It is very much advisable that we taken exercising seriously and not with levity like most of us do. These fitness equipment are very common and we may have come across it and overlooked it. Thanks for sharing this wonderful article .

  8. First of all thanks for all the fabulous cardio tips, 

    I have been fighting my fat %, and extra weight quite for a while now, 

    and I reached the point in which I really need to have a proper equipment home to do it. I was reading a lot on cardio exercise, and most of what I found is that I need to keep my heart rate at about 65% of maximum, considering my age, in this way, it would not matter so much if I do treamill (that I could adjust height and inclination) or stairs work (that I would need to adjust speed that would be harder I guess).

    Do you have any advice on that? on which machine it would help me the most to keep the heart beats constant and at a specific pace for a while?

    Thanks, Luiz

    1. I appreciate your comments and your question Lutz.

      To help with your question you might want to click on the links in this article which would take you to exercise equipment available in Amazon, but there you will also find treadmills.  That is good about then is that they are not terribly expensive but usually have heart rate monitors built in which allow you to exercise your heart at a controlled rate.

  9. The treadmill is one of the best exercise equipment I have seen so far. Wow!

    You’ve said it all… This awesome training equipment is capable of rectifying some health issues one might be facing. I usually run, but not on a treadmill. Treadmill running looks really cool, the best exercise to combat cardiovascular problems just as you have said and obesity too.

    thanks for sharing.

  10. Thank you for bringing up the best cardio fitness equipment ringing the importance of exercise in every person. I see the three equipment all equally good to invest money in. 

    I have tried the treadmill and I like the test I’ve gone through. If you just want to walk or you want to run you can control the speed.

    I can see The Stair Master more favorable to a physically stronger individual that can move up and down.

    The Mini Gymn is also good not only for exercise for the heart but also for bodybuilding.

    All of these are a choice for individuals inclined to health benefits and you can have it all if you have the budget. If not then just acquire it one by one.

    The good thing about the equipment is that you need not go outside you can just do the exercise you can have in the comfort of your home.

    1. Hi Abagatan

      Yes, there can be advantages to having your exercise equipment within your home:

      1.  You have the convenience of not having to go outside, especially in bad weather.

      2.  You are more likely to exercise regularly, if the equipment is near.

      3.  If you are a senior or in any way physically handicapped. it does not
           require you to leave the house.

      4. If you have children at home you can  babysit and exercise at the same time.
