Cardio Equipment: Work Off That Turkey

We'd be the very last people to tell you not to enjoy some holiday yummies. The very last. But the second the holidays end, the swimsuit season push begins. So get a machine. That way, you can gently ease back into health, instead of panicking around June 5th the way you did last year.

Tell us about your cardio routine, and your questions about this equipment!

I'm just hanging out, really.

LOL :-> Isn't that always the debate? "Will I really use THIS one or will it end up as another coat rack?"

Is the shipping 5 dollars? How long does it take to ship?

We like to request you give us five business days for processing/shipping of your order. (It is often faster.)

Wish Woot would offer a deal on a bike trainer that I can put my bike on when the weather is lousy. However these deals look tempting!!!

Wouldn't advise getting on the inversion table whilst still full of turkey.

That could be messy.

I completely agree.. I have thought of engineering my own, but since I'm not a mechanical engineer, I'd probably forget something essential like how to keep the bike from jetting off in the event the back tire actually touches the floor... :-/

There are lots of those available, and they are pretty cheap!

Just search for "bike trainer" online. I use them all winter every year.

I've been considering getting a stationary bike, but I would very much like to use one while using the computer. With that in mind, would it be possible to convert any of these so that they could be used relatively easily while at a desk/table? It may be possible to adjust the height of the desk/table as needed, but I'm also worried about having the handlebars getting in the way...
Anyways, that's my question!

I know people somehow mount it where the little screen is. I'd imagine a nice bungee cord.

Not sure if anyone will see this, as this sale is almost over. But do you think it would be worth it to get the SquareTrade Warranty for the stationary bike? How likely is it to actually break in the first 3 years if it doesn't break in the first 90 days? And are they difficult to fix, as in if I know a little about mechanics and can get the parts myself, I should be fine in repairing whatever issue arises?

It's a stationary bike. You don't need to brake.

haha wow... That was a complete brain fart on my end. Obviously I need to go back to 2nd grade and learn the difference between break and brake.
