I was thinking about grabbing a trainer for my bicycle- it never gets used these days (I used to live in bike-friendly Portland, and now I live in less-bike-friendly DFW and don't feel comfortable riding), but when I looked into it I realized that I could probably get a used elliptical, my preferred exercise machine, for a similar price as a decent trainer.
I thought I'd ask if anyone here had any thoughts or suggestions for me. I'm looking for something I can use at home while I watch TV, and it'll save money (which is very tight right now) over having a gym membership as well as being easier to cram into my day.
In terms of sheer space efficiency, putting a trainer on the bicycle we have around anyway is the way to go...but in terms of which exercise I prefer, that's ellipticals all the way.
Anyone have any thoughts? I'd also appreciate feedback on specific trainers and/or what to look for when picking up an elliptical.
