Ok... It's official... I am TOTALLY in love with Cardio Theater. Apparently this is a name brand for this particular machine, so I'll explain so you know what I'm talking about. Every treadmill and elliptical machine the gym has, has a personal 22" tv screen mounted on it. You can change it to whatever channel you want (they have cable) and plug your head phones in to watch whatever you like! This is a BRILLIANT idea! At my last (EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!) Lifetime gym (they JUST doubled their prices!) they didn't have these. So we're trying out the other gyms... they may be cheaper but this tv while doing cardio is a stunning idea! At Lifetime I'd count the seconds as I walked... just getting to 10 mins killed me because it seemed to drag on endlessly... but with the TV cardio... I totally focused on the tv and before it dawned on me, I'd walked for 25 mins (@ a moderately high intensity) without even realizing it! I'm DEFINATELY changing gyms now! Woot Woot! Cheaper, AND the exercise flies by? I'm IN!
WE WILL SUCCEED!
