with a bit more than 2 months till summer officially starts down here in Aust, i've kind of gotten fed up with the mix of whether we've been receiving, i can barely do outdoor AM cardio (never really could start), and treadmil's sell for anywhere from
800-1000$, so buying some cardio requipment is out of the question, BUT ive seen of a place that lets you hire out gym equipment for a certain amount of time, so i was thinking of hiring out some equipment for cardio for 3 months.. im looking to do low intencity/long duration cardio, but im not 100% sure on what equipment to hire out.. here are my alternatives:
-stepper
-rower
-exercise bike
-treadmil

and i duno what these two are but they offer them also
-air walker
-inversion table

for those who have done AM cardio b4, or those who have any suggestions, which would you recomend?

I like those eliptical things:) I always feel I get a better workout (and easier on joints) than on a treadmill, bike, rower, or stepper

If you have to use some damn machine, I'd say just use a regular treadmill. New treadmills arent so hard on the knees, they give a lot when you run so its not like hitting concrete(fags). The only machine I use is the treadmill and my knees are fine.

When I have to start doing cardio to cut for the contest I want to do.....I'm going to jump rope. Those machines bore me.

the whether down here is gay, one day its nice n sunny, the next day its pissin down rain, hard to get outside n do cardio consistently over a week, let alone 2 months, and with 2 months left till summer, i wana get serious about cuting, so cardio is a must

anyhow, i hired out a eliptical runner for 2 months, thanks geoffgarcia for reminding me what it was :thumbup:
