My 'Home Gym'

It's official...  I have exercise equipment in my house.  I admittedly fell off the Insanity wagon, and I am even more out of shape than before.  I have a muffin top.  Seriously, it looks like I am three months pregnant.
Body Champ Cardio Dual Trainer, $279.99

I've always liked doing the bike and elliptical at the gym, but I need something that I can do at home when I'm being a bum.  Insanity is great, and I'm willing to try it again, because I really felt stronger and showed improvement... it works because I have indoor workout shoes and I can do the program on the television.

That said, exercise equipment is expensive.  I scoured Craigslist for weeks for something suitable and debated whether I should go with the bike or elliptical.  Something for cardio.

Then I found a dual trainer on Amazon that would allow me to do either bike OR elliptical... a 2-in-1 machine!  It did require assembly (I had help with mine) and it's not the caliber of machine you'll see in the gym... it wobbles a little and the screen isn't super high-tech.  But it does the job, it's not too big, and I like it!  I need something to stare at me every day... so I put it in my formal dining room.  :)

It's not super-cheap, but it's very inexpensive compared to most exercise bikes/ellipticals, and I've spent more on a purse before.  So I figured it's a decent investment, especially considering how much I need to lose some weight.  Here's hoping!

  1. I love using an elliptical machine for my cardio workouts. It is a smooth motion that has limited impact on the body. I love mine!
