I am enjoying all of the help offered up and everyone is being so helpful. The last one is a good one and I did do that for a loong time! I used to do routines to the vcr. All of the years my kids were growing up I got up early and did my routine and walked outside. I just can't stand that anymore! We are talking 20 years here! I guess we all top out with types of exercise. The kids are gone now. I hate doing routines by myself now. I go to Pilates class and love the live class.

I just want a basic thing like my old treadmill for the in between days. I don't want to have to be focused too much on it, but I want to get my time in here!

My daily life has changed over the years and I start work early in the day and exercise later on. My DH is often at home at that time and I can't really bounce around in front of the TV as he is using it. More of life changes!

Thanks again and you are all helping here.

I have an elliptical that is kept in the laundry room/my workout room. Here is a thought, you can find some great workout dvd's that can give a HUGE amount of variety and different workouts and they take up a whole lot less room to store! I love workout dvd's because I can pick a workout based on my mood if I am here at home. I go to the Y and do spinning 3 times a week and do their weights the other 2 days there. But here at home I depend on my elliptical and assortment of dvd's. Also, if you have Netflix, they have a "watch intstantly" section that you can pick a few different workouts there and do them off of the computer.

Good luck and congrats on the new work to your house! Let us know what you come up with!

I use a stepper at home. At first it seems futile, because it's a slow build to increase your heart rate. After about 10 minutes though I am sweating like I've been running.

Hi Kathy, I do my aerobics at home on my treadmill in the extra bedroom, but it folds up so it's not too much in the way. I also have an exercise bike in the living room. I'm not crazy about putting it there, but I figure my health is more important than whatever people might think when they come over to visit. Good luck, I hope you figure out something that works for you.

We have just redone some of our house and DH no longer wants the treadmill in the foyer. (well neither do I but I don't know what else to do with it). I go to Pilates class 3 x/week but I like doing my aerobic work at home for convenience.

Does anyone out there do their aerobic work at home using a more compact piece of equipment or collapsible and storable piece of equipment that they would recommend in this situation?

Thank you so much

Kathy
