The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    what is your prefered machine for cardio?

    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.

    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
