Day #17: The Home Gym Equipment Dilemma

Friday, November 12, 2010

Well, well... I may be exaggerating a little. Not much of a dilemma, just trying to make a decision here.

The good news: tomorrow morning I'm going fitness-equipment shopping... YAY!!!! First, I'm gonna check out a few stores I found over the Internet to get an HRM (pedometer included). Cross your fingers! Because I've had so much trouble to find one! I live in a big city and yet I haven't had any luck now but I am sure I was just looking in the wrong places!

Anyhow, I also want to get either an elliptical trainer or a stationary bike but I'm just torn between the two options. If I am going to invest in equipment, I want something I can make a good use of. I have just posted this question on the Fitness forum so I hope I get a couple of opinions.

I was going to ask for your opinion, but I have just realized I have been asking way too many questions to my sparkfriends so I am just giving you guys a break!


As always, thanks for reading!

    Thank you guys!

    I go outside and walk (almost) every morning but I want something I can do at home at night after I finished my workday and it's too dark to go out.

    I have NO idea if I want a bike for spinning or not and I have NO idea if I can c25k on an elliptical hahaha

    I have never been much into any kind of sports so I have absolutely no clue (well, I guess it shows! :P). But I am really looking forward to get a piece of equipment to exercise even if it's pouring rain outside. I am so motivated that I will probably end up destroying my house and building a gym instead! lol

    Never stop asking questions! emoticon

    The dinner discussion this evening was elliptical trainer, stationary bike, or something else. I live near the beach in the Tampa Bay area. Walking and biking is heavenly here. Why bring it inside? Then what is the perfect solution. We're still working on this as well! You really aren't alone!

    what you plan to do with the equipment?
    bear with me, at the gym I go straight to the track, I have not used any machine yet.
    I mean
    bike (is it for spinning? or just virtual biking)
    ellipical (can you c25k on it? my hubby said no, he used to use the ellipical all the time. but now being mr competitive, he wants to RUN. he is on the treadmill)
