Smooth Fitness is Keeping the Whole Family in Shape! {#SmoothBlogger}

While I've spent the past two months talking about my own experience with Smooth Fitness and the Smooth CE 8.0LC Commercial Elliptical Trainer, I can't leave out the fact that I haven't been the only one excited about the ability to have the gym right here in our home.

That's right. As with pretty much everything that I do in life, my two mini cohorts were instantly curious. From the day that this elliptical trainer arrived, they wanted to know what it was for, what it did, and, most importantly, if they could try it out.

While I resisted each and every time (after all, the CE 8.0LC is far from being a toy or item to play on), I later found that my husband was allowing the girls their own exercise time when I wasn't around. Typical.

However, the first time that I got to see Big Sister E and Little Sister B using this machine, I had to admit that I had underestimated them. While I thought that they would just be climbing and playing on it, I was surprised and pleased to find that they truly were able to use it as it is designed.

While Big Sister E is a little too short to be able to use the moving handlebars, she really is able to fully extend the pedals and operate the flywheel smoothly and comfortably.

Considering I'd love to instill an appreciation for exercise early on, I'm happy to let her take a turn on the CE 8.0LC (with my supervision, of course) and get her body moving.

Little Sister B, on the other hand, lacks much of the height and coordination to really get things moving. However, that doesn't mean that she still isn't able to put in her time pumping her little legs back and forth while holding on to the stationary handles.

While I'm always standing close by in case either of my elliptical machine fans needs me, anytime that they are able to work off some energy (tiring them out) while inspiring me to want to take a turn ends up being a win-win situation for all of us!

Although the Smooth CE 8.0LC Elliptical Trainer is designed with the precision and technical specifications to make it a commercial grade, professional machine, it is clearly easy enough for children to operate. And if that isn't motivation enough for someone like me to get up and get moving, then I don't know what is!
