SEVERINA418: I definitely think you should try each one out before making a choice. If you go with a Gazelle, the reviews and articles I have read suggest getting one with resistance.

(1) How much can you afford to spend? I don't know how good exercise bikes for under $200 are. The prices for the Gazelle seem to run between $150 - $200. Although some SparkPeople members don't recommend it, I am a very firm proponent of the Schwinn AirDyne Evolution. I love the fact that it is well-built and works both the legs and upper body. I have had mine going on the 5th year now and ride it daily. However, the price is $650-$700. The Gazelle would be much cheaper. I have tried ellipticals and treadmills that sell for $1500 - $3000. I opted for the AirDyne. If you live in a bigger city, there is a good chance people are selling a Gazelle or exercise bike in want ads, garage sales, on Craig's List, etc.

(2) I absolutely agree with the others who point out you need to buy something that you will actually use. I must admit that I know far more people with exercise bikes, treadmills, and ellipticals that don't use them than do.

Which is better on your body? The bike hurts my knees too much, so I use an ARC. The ARC is a cross between the Gazelle and elliptical. Try them before you buy them.

whichever one (or something else) that you're mostly likely to use.

Whichever one you will use and keep using ;).

I have gazelle, and an exercise bike, ( not a fancy one). I find I enjoy using the gazelle more.
I don't know which is better, but if I am not using the bike much, the gazelle is working for me.

Which would be better for a person trying to get in shape? A gazelle or an exercise bike?
