I’ve been thinking about buying an elliptical trainer for awhile. It’s the same old debate: if I spend all that money, will I actually use it? Will it just be a new, expensive and rather large dust magnet? Well, I bought one today. I did a lot of research online last night and had a few models I wanted to give a test drive. I was concerned about it being sturdy enough for me and I wanted one that had a super smooth motion. I decided on a New Balance 9.0. I ended up getting it for the same price that I found online via Froogle, so that felt pretty good. It took myself and Jess quite a time to get it assembled – I don’t think I could have done it myself. Thanks Jess! It takes up all of the space in my guest room. In fact, we had to put it on a diagonal in order to fit it in there. (My guest room is pretty small and the trainer is darn big.)
Now the hard part – getting in the habit of using it at least 4 times a week.
