Greetings: Ino my 5th week of SP! Staying motivated and doing all the right things to be successful on my weight-loss and life-long healthy journey!
Question/HELP: Right now all of my exercise routines are with DVD's (including Spark's 28-day Boot Camp!). I'm torn between buying an elliptical trainer (or not). I'd joined a gym a few years back and had the best workouts ever using one. A great part of the reluctance is price. So here I am trying to rationalize.
Having the freedom to get in a 15-min, 30-min., or whatever (and whenever) workout would be perfect. I've converted my 2nd bedroom into an office where a spacesaver-sized one would fit just fine. And I visualize using it as a life-long tool. (My VERY-fit neighbor's been using hers daily for the past 6 years!)
But I just can't move forward with a decision? Originally I thought, "o.k., look for a used one on Craigs List or Ebay." Upside: wouldn't have to be put together!! Downsides: a) I haven't come across any spacesaver ones; b) a used one doesn't come w/ a warranty.
Then there's the challenge of finding just the right one that'll pretty much replicate the professional ones in the gym. I've read so many comments where in-home exercise equipment doesn't pan out; though having the discipline and momentum is not an issue for me.
But I just can't get off the fence??? I welcome your advice/experiences. Thanks alot.
