So, with the change in season, I find myself having to switch up my workout routine. I've been using the elliptical machine we have in the basement, which gives me a great workout, but it's COLD down there these days. I don't like the cold!
I looked up manual treadmills today. Checked out a few reviews on them and I've come to the conclusion that I don't know the good from the bad. LOL One reason I want a manual is that it's quiet. I can do it in the living room and still hear the TV. The othe reason, and this is the more important reason, I don't have a lot of space. I need something I can fold up and put away. The Denise Austin treadmill is foldable and seems like it MIGHT be a good deal. At about $180 I can get a treadmill that will fit in my living room, it's fairly quiet and I can tuck it away when I'm done--or when people come over. But, do manual treadmills give you a good workout?? Hmm, I'm not really sure.
Next, I went looking at some aerobic videos. Most of the ones I have are a bit old. Kathy Smith, Denise Austin. I have a few Billy Banks too. But I sort of wanted something different. To mix it up a little. Of course, most of the ones I saw online use a step. I don't like those types of workouts, it's hard on my knees. Plus I'm not coordinated enough. So, I'm left with the same old tapes, I guess.
My third option? Bring my problem to you all! LOL What type of workout do you do? Are you like me where you'd rather workout in your own home? Do you swear by aerobics, treadmills, stair climbers or what? Help a gal out here! :)
