I got the treadclimber today!
I'm about to change into my workout clothes and take it for a spin once I finish this episode of the Vampire Diaries [I'm still catching up on last season, shhh]. But a few initial observations:
-it's HEAVY and I hope I never have to move this thing ever again. Getting it across the yard and up a flight of stairs was a lot of work and I'm surprised my back didn't get hurt, honestly.
-it's not as big as I thought it might be, but it still does take up a good chunk of space in my exercise room. I'll have to reconfigure the room for doing my more spacious workout dvds.
-there's a big, flat tray/display that seems to be PERFECT for my laptop, so I can internet/watch netflix/"work" while exercising!
-assembling it was actually really simple, but I couldn't have done it by myself so I'm glad that my aunt stuck around for that
-it comes with its own heart rate monitor [Polar as well] but it's not as comfortable as mine and as long as I don't have any problems with using my own HRM, I'm just going to stick with that
-I'm really excited to try it out!
