Exercise for fat loss
AlanGator posted:
I tried and love that site but it's made me realize how much more I need to exercise! I hate running (hurts my knees) and I'm stuck inside due to bad weather a lot. Does anyone have experience with indoor aerobic exercise programs? My wife bought me that exercise system for the Wii but I haven't tried it yet. I see lots of adds for machines on TV but there must be a better (and more economical) way to burn calories at home. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the link to ontarget - I signed up. For exercise I wear a pedometer and make sure I walk 5000 steps per day. When it's nasty weather outside I have a treadmill. It's boring but works.

I workout, outdoors, 95% of the time but I have a Schwinn recumbent bike, handy, when weather's bad. 20 minutes on a medium level program will have you perspiring, heavily. Watching a dvd or reading a magazine is easy since you're seated w/ legs, extended.

Recumbents are excellent equipment for those suffering joint pain. I paid $200 for mine, two years ago. Good luck!
