Wanted to update folks on my winter search for a good indoor exercise mini-machine (need "mini" because of my small home).
Some may remember that I wanted to get a "Tony Little Rock and Roll Stepper" because (to me) it looked like it used a natural body movement similar to walking up a hill. It's kind of funny what happened afterwards, cause I couldn't find it for sale anywhere on-line, and so I even had an executive I knew at Wal Mart trying to find me one. Turns out they don't make them anymore!!! I had Wally World searching for an item that no longer exists! LOL!!! I sorta had to laugh over that!
(You can still find them here and there on the net, usually high prices, cause they aren't made anymore. There are also one or two other name brands, but they also usually sell at fairly high prices.)
The latest thing that has raised my curiousity is a machine they actually "do" make still, called Stamina 55-1610 In Motion E1000 Elyptical Trainer (man, talk about a NAME!!! Couldn't they have shortened it just a little???? LOL!!!)
This is a mini-elyptical. They say the range of motion is small compared to a big one, but folks who are buying it are ranting and raving about how much they like it. It's still not in my buying range (at 80 to 100 bucks), but it's on my radar for a "maybe" future purchase someday.
Mostly I was curious if anyone here had ever used it? If so, does it really seem to work up a sweat and would you recommend it?
And my search for indoor exercise stuff has been wild at times: I found this thing called a "T-Bow", which looks just like a kids toy...a big curved piece of plastic...and it sells for like 140 dollars...and you just rock back and forth on it! Amazes me the things that are being sold in the name of fitness, these days! What a rip off!
But some exercise machines are good (I use to use my mini trampoline religiously and loved it), so I'm a believer in a good indoor machine that is compact.
