I do not know if any Sparkers are aware of freecycle.org, but I belong to it..

Members post things they wish to give away or requests for things they need, online,, other members reply if they wish that item..The point of the thing is to recycle everything we have to clean things up on the planet, but still utilize what we no longer wish to keep.

Yesterday I got an email that a woman a couple miles from me had two items for workouts: one is a 12 inch bar attached to a spring which is also attached to foot straps. You stand in the "stirrups" and pull up on the bar and the tension in this spring is VERY tight!!
The second one is one of those pedal thingies on a small frame that you put on the floor in front of you. IT also has "stirrups" to place your feet, then sit and pedal. DD tried them both,, I tried the spring thing, but it is to difficult for me with arthritis and fibro.. She will use it.

When we finish using it, we will pass it on, likewise..

    emoticon Health issues seem to make getting exercise so much harder. Fortunately we can still walk, and every little bit helps.

    Freecycle sounds great, esp. in bigger communities. Here's hoping some good exercise bands show up soon.

    Have a great day. :)

    Thanks for the heads up, I will get it in to the favorites just to see if we have anything like this in Maine.
    DH and I have found a scrap yard we tried to give away an old treadmill, no takers so it went to scrap yard, We were paid for the metal. Otherwise we would have had to pay for the weight at the dump. I prefer to give away if possible thanks again Pat in Maine. I can give away clothes too. GREAT!
