    Default Exercise Equipment

    I had a gym membership but its too easy to talk myself out of not going. So I was thinking of trying something at home.

    I was looking at the Total Gym

    Has anyone ever tried one?

    What piece of equipment is your favorite?

    Theres alot of reasons I dont like the gym - the main one is I always seem to catch some kind of bug when I go - even though I wipe down the equipment - its like a germ fest in there

    Just get an elliptical or a treadmill. The hard part is getting a cardio workout at home - you can always go buy a cheap kettle bell or dumbbells for any resistance/weight lifting.

    You can probably find a cheap one on Craigslist if you don't want to pay full price.

    Chicks should not be going to strangers houses to buy stuff off Craigs. That's a man's job.

    Use your own body weight for muscle definition, yoga for flexibility and run/cycle (or elliptical trainer) for cardio

    And eat well.

    I have an elliptical a treadmill and a stationery bike and I use them all. I think an elliptical, and of course diet, would be good.

    I eat too well - thats my problem - oh and alcohol - I eat way more when I drink than I ever could think about eating when I smoke

    Oh and the total gym does use your body weight and I think it has some cardio benefits as well

    Well - does not mean a lot!

    Save your money - honestly. Buy a skipping rope if you feel like you need some equipment, seriously, press ups, inclined, marine, wide arm, cross thumbed etc etc are all better than free weights for your average chick who wants to get slimmer, same with different sit up variants, squats and toe raises. Our body provided all the resistance we need.

    Dont go on a mad protein feast either - unless you are body building or seriously training, it is not needed

    They can all be done for free with no extra kit
