I think most Gyms have a Circuit Training system. You may have to have the Trainer show you which machines to include, or how to do them.

MOTIVATED - Thanks for the advice. I haven't see one of those arm-pedallers in years! Unfortuanately, my gym does not have one. And, sadly, I don't know how to swim.

The increase in heart rate from strength training is not quite the same as that from genuine training.

An arm ergometer (pedalling for the arms) or swimming might be heel-friendly cardio?

But the circuit training is a good idea.

If there is a Curves Gym near you I think it would be Ideal for your situation. They will usually give you a Free Week to try the workout and see if it will work for you.

I have been struggling with plantar fasciitis for almost a year. I've seen a podiatrist, and have gotten it to the point where it is "manageable," but working out can still be an issue. I've tried low impact cardio like the elliptical and spin class because they were recommended by my doctor, but even those exercises can aggrivate my heel.

I've found that the only exercise I can really do with no pain (or fear of hurting myself) is strength training...and gets my heart rate up, too. So, I'm thinking about making circuit training my main type of exercise for the time being. Is this appropriate? Is it enough? I have learned not to do strength training on the same muscle groups for 2 days in a row. Since circuit training is also considered cardio, is that still necessary?
