1/19/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

If you are trying to create a home gym you don’t always have to shell out thousands of dollars for a well made cardio machine.  Do your research.

Look for deals on the internet from dealers or private people looking to unload equipment.  I bought my spinning bike from my Pilates center. 

Go to a second hand sports equipment store like Play It Again Sports.  They had 6-8 cardio machines for sale the last time I was in there last.

On the internet I found a Health rider H14OE for $999, a Star Trac Spinning bike for $750, and a NordicTrack T9 CI for $1099.

When the weather warms up, certainly biking on a trail or on the street, or going for a walk outside is a great solution.  Try taking the stairs when available.  Park further away in a parking lot.  Any effort is better than nothing.
