I had one goal this year for myself – taking care of my health. I committed on January 1st, along with my husband by my side, to take care of myself body, mind and soul. Growing up an athlete I’ve always loved to workout. I love how it makes me feel. I love how it makes my body ache (that means it’s working). And I love how I see results on my body when I workout. As a busy full-time working mom of 5, I’m going to be honest with you. Finding time to workout isn’t easy. It’s not easy AT ALL. When I heard that NordicTrack had their NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle out, I was completely intrigued because I knew it would give me the best of both worlds – working out with a trainer, but also working out at home. It was a win win.
NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle
8 years ago my husband shed 100 pounds in 4 months by doing 2 things. One – he started eating healthy. Two – he started spin classes. He went to spin classes 4 times a week and their completely helped transform his body. My husband isn’t a big lover of classes at our local gym, but this class in particular really got him. He loved it. Throughout the last 2 years his weight has slowly crept back on. I could share with you a million excuses, but the reality is – we’re just busy. He doesn’t have time to go to the gym in the morning. He doesn’t have time to go in the evenings. We are so busy with the kids, our lives revolve around them. We need something EASY to do at HOME.
Enter: NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle.
When I told my husband that I was chosen to review this item from NordicTrack, he lit up like a Christmas tree! This. This is exactly what we needed. This. This is exactly what we’ve been hoping and wishing for for ourselves. This. This is a true game changer for busy people who don’t have the luxury or ability to get to the gym as much as they want to.
Let me tell you about the NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle first and then I’m going to tell you why and how this has integrated into our lives so seamlessly. Before I review ANYTHING on my blog, I need to make sure I have spent time with something and really feel connected to it. I’ve been using this for the last 6 weeks and I am in love with it! Head over heels. It had me at hello. In love with it.

I’m telling you right now, what I love the most is the CONVENIENCE. I’m working out AT HOME when it works for me best. I love to workout when the kids are sleeping in the morning. I know I don’t have time to go to a gym, but I do have 30 minutes where I can pop in the basement and ride! My husband loves to workout right before dinner (I don’t know how he does this!), so he can easily go down into the basement and ride while I’m prepping away! The convenience of this amazing machine is incredible! It IS the biggest factor for me in why this will be such a success for us. The convenience alone sets you UP for success!
