    I need a new cardio type machine!!! What's "new"?


    After YEARS of compiling machiones at the house along with the wife who is a fitness nut, we have a bike, eliiptical and treadmill.

    Need something NEW as we are bored with these.

    Anything new/different out there?

    We are cardio fanatics so we abuse our cardio equipment.

    Need new machine

    Do you have access to a parking lot or road that can be a little beat up?

    Haha no and I live in BLIZZARD LAND anyway.

    It's bitter cold here 9 months out of the year

    We are inside cardio people. We also both hate running (outside) as we both have brutally bad shin splints.

    Inside cardio only is what we are looking for also due to time constraints related to work. it is EASY for us to hop on the machine at 5am and get in the shower and head to work.

    Thanks Rodja

    Two suggestions for indoor stationary machines: A rowing erg or an air dyne

    We use the air dyne for low-impact conditioning intervals with our team-athletes at school.

    Otherwise, go to an empty parking lot and push your car for some intervals.

    I know you said that you have a bike, but have you looked into an actual "spinning" bike?

    I had one and IMHO, it can really get a good workout in

    Revolving staircase. Not a stepper but the revolving type. Very challenging, awesome for the legs and you sweat your ass off. I started using one at the local gym and use nothing but.

    Hi Whacked,
    Mowing your lawn is also a great exercise.
    I mowed my lawn twice in a month. I found it very effective exercise as it increases my stamina

    Agree with this. A C2 rower will destroy you. And intervals on an Airdyne is awesome. Also if you have the scratch then maybe a VersaClimber.

    Take a look at the X-iser. At first glance, it looks like a stepper, but it will give you a great burst-type workout.
