Great idea. I am currently doing quite a bit besides running, most recently have been working with a personal trainer in the weight room for the last 6 weeks.<br>
In addition, I use the cardio equipment at the gym, bike alone and with a club and inline skate. Wonderful to have a new place to discuss these.<br><br>

I actually prefer the Stairmill to the stepper but I will use the stepper if the mills are all taken. And I wouldn't exactly call it love, more of a love/hate thang.<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

So where are you using the stair stepper?<br>
Another piece of equipment I love/hate is the Bosu ball. Squats with dumbell front raises and just standing on it with a body bar for bicep curls get my heart rate way up there. This is something you could have in the house as it doesn't take up much room.

AHH, so you meant if you could have a Stairmill you would? They require a high ceiling. Hey, as long as you use your home equipment that is great. How many people buy that stuff and use it as a clothes rack. We have a brand spanking new gym in my apartment building and we had to pay an assessment for it. We've had a gym for a long time but it consisted of donated equipment which worked fine for me on days I didn't want to go the half mile up the block. Anyway.....when they first redid this one it was getting some action but now it is virtually empty. I use it once or twice week and never see anyone. Super says it hardly gets used except by a handful of regulars.<br>
It's got club quality stuff and cable TV, mirrors......2 ellipticals, 2 treadmills, 2 recumbent bikes a universal machine and a set of dumbells. Someone left a ball in there which I use for ball against the wall squats.<br><br>
Off to go for a run, training later at the club.

I forgot to mention, our gym in the building looks out on the ocean. Which is nice, except at night of course. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
