We have an exercise bike but I cannot use it, due to my bad knees. The exercise center at our local clinic has purchased a recumbent bike which I hope to try. Unfortunately it came without its pedals, so I must wait til that is resolved. Meanwhile I am using the elliptical, for around 20 minutes, while my husband uses the treadmill. He uses the exercise bike for 20 mins. at a time, 3 times each day, then down to the clinic for 20 mins. on the treadmill in poor weather OR 20 mins. on our local hiking trail reclaimed from an abandoned railroad roadbed when weather allows. I swim 2ce a week, hike to do errands when weather allows, join him for the elliptical when it doesn't. It takes a lot of exercise to move a pound at our age, especially at my poor speed!
