not sure if i can help you make that decision, i have a treadmill and i run outside. i just saw on an infomercial that bowflex ( i think it was them ) have a treadmill/elypitcal. it looked pretty cool. i also just read a brisk 20 minute walk 5 times a week can take off an xtra 15 a year. just thought i would share.
I have a treadmill and an elliptical. I have found that the treadmill (or even walking outside) helps improve my energy and keeps my weight down, while the elliptical (which I use only two or three times a week) seems to help build muscle tone and strength. If I had to choose only one, I guess I'd go with a treadmill that has an incline; that way, I could get aerobic workout and could also walk some with the incline for a little more muscle workout. For me personally, I am also more likely to keep up with my exercise regimen when I use the treadmill than the elliptical. I know that when I keep up with my walking, I have no trouble with my weight. I really think that my daily walks helped me to have easy childbirths and helped me lose weight quickly after after the births of my children. Please post your decision.
I have decided on a tredmill, I think I will get a better cardio workout a be more likely to loose the weight. Thanx
I have worked on treadmill for a while, possibly three or four years. Not regular exercise, I went to gym when I feel it is necessary. I am approaching 40s, and would like to lose some weight. I am 5'3'', 125Ibs. Believe it or not, I gained about 10 pounds since I came here. Forgot to mention that I originally came from China, and I am petite here. In my country I am medize size.
I plan to restrore to my original weight, which is, I plan to lose 10pounds. I noticed that I put on most of my weight around my hip and waist area.
Any suggestions are welcome.
