Thinking 'Bout Elliptical for Cardio when Burning/Freezing Out - Thoughts?
I'm allergic to sweat that comes from exercise. I inherited it from my mother.
Okay, but in all seriousness, it's been above 80° almost non-stop here for the past few weeks and I find it incredibly uncomfortable to go outside and do any form of "strenuous" cardio - be that simply walking at a fast clip or biking. So I'm thinking about getting an elliptical.
I ended up buying my weight equipment from Craigslist last year and was fairly happy. Weight bench, 400 lbs of weights, etc., for maybe $150 total. The Boulder area craigslist is listing several ellipticals from anywhere from free to >$1000. I've taken a look at the ones that are <$50 and they seem to be a very simple type and compact. Which is good as I have negative room in my apartment.
Anyway, what do folks recommend with this? Are ellipticals worth it for when it's sweltering or the ground is covered with a foot of snow? If so, is there anything in particular I need to make sure I DON'T get, and anything I need to make sure I DO?
