I just purchased an Eliptical machine with IFIT module being order today for it. I think that I will use this more than I did at the gym. I sometimes feel working out at the gym is only for show now a days. Thats just might though. I guess the last time I had a membership people were just sitting on the machines hardley doing anything and stopping to text.. People are waiting to use them lol. Oh well.

I have the Kinect, I have about 5 or 6 games for it. I also have the Wii Fit, but I haven't used it as much since getting the Kinect. I also have a gym membership to the local YMCA here. I love using so much there, I honestly can't name them all.

In the past, wii fitness games and house/yardwork have been my main exercise. I specifically bought the wii for wii fit and fitness games. I've been known to do some tai chi/qi gong to dvds. I use a treadmill, hand weights, yoga mat, stability ball and step in conjunction with the wii fit games. In the summer, I like to get outside and ride bicycles at least once a week, but would do it more if I could muster my courage to ride alone.

I walk my 11 year old dogs at least a half a mile daily; they've been losing weight and toning up, too. I have a stationary bicycle I bought on clearance years ago, but it's never worked correctly, which is a bummer. I bought a hula hoop from a local gal who custom makes them and I'm hoping to use it to whittle my middle. I'm pretty bad at hooping, though.

I just bought a groupon for 1 month at the local YMCA, so I think I'm going to try zumba or yoga class, maybe even water aerobics. (I haven't worn a swimsuit in public in over a decade, so we'll see.)

I have a recumbent bike but I also use my 5lb weights, my swiss ball, and my wii board for step ups. Will try to get a good step platform in the future!

Just wanted to bring this topic back to the top. What cardio equipment are you using into shape.

Just bought an elliptical so still in the love phase of it. Hopefully I'll seem some results soon.

No gym for me. I tried Curves in the past & while I think it is a great program; I just wouldn't go regularly.

I have dumbbells, a step/riser for the Wii Fit balance board, SP's fitness starter kit (ball, band, pedometer), elliptical, treadmill, stationary bike that doesn't work (on my list of things to see if can repair), new mini-trampoline. Mostly, I use my Wii Fit and other Wii workout 'games'. Trying to get into more routine use of my equipment.

I do have a gym membership that I use regularly (my company has a wellness program that pays for 1/2 of a gym membership). For the days when I can't make it to the gym, I have some dumbbells and a Gold's Gym mini-stepper (I think it was $40 at Walmart). I also use Walk It Out or EA Active on the Wii (I have Wii Fit too but I rarely use it).

I go through phases where I use X or Y equiptment. My most-often used piece over the years has probably been my yoga mat, but I am currently getting a lot of use out of an old ski machine. (No gym membership, but considering a 1 month membership at the rec center to cheer up February. :P )

I have a stability ball, resistance bands, 8lb weights, medicine ball, yoga mat and strap, foam roller, and many wii games at home that I use. But I also go to my local YMCA for water aerobics and the gym function. I'm thinking about starting a spin class once I reach a mini goal.
