An exersice type machine, air walker or stepper

I need to lose lots and lots and lots of weight and need to be able to do some kind of exersice in the home.

Any machine I have will need to hold a lot of weight (lets just say I'm no Kate Moss) so the higher the weight limit the better.

My weight loss is in your hands (Well I have to have someone to blame) :thumbsup:



PS this is the first thread I have started so I apologise for any mistakes in advance.

I'm not going to be much help on this but I can advise you of which exercise bike NOT to get. There is a Carl Lewis one that looks great but, in essence, is very poor. There is very little in the way of resistance settings and its very noisy - mine is just a clothes hangar now as its simply a waste of any effort and time as it doesn't do any good.

I'm afraid to say there is no quick fixes in terms of steppers, bikes etc as only the expensive ones will give you a good start.

My only advice to you is to goto the gym - its cheaper and will help you more. Remember - everyone that goes to the gym is either trying to lose weight or just like looking at themselves in the mirror - they are no better than anyone.

Good luck - i'll probably see you in the gym myself (*looks down at the xmas tire*).

I kind of agree with the above about joining a gym - the equipment will be of a high specification and there will be lots of variety. If you buy an exercise stepper, all you will be able to do is ..... step ..... after a time you will more than likely get bored of it.

Sometimes it isn't easy to get to a gym so it is convienient to get a machine at home ... I have never enjoyed stepper type machines so cannot offer any advice there I am afraid.

Sometimes gyms sell off their equipment at knock-down prices from time to time so it may be worth phoning around to see if you can get a commercial grade machine at a consumer price!

Wow thanks for the replies.

I'm not sure if the lateral thingy will hold my weight but I will look into it.

I am eternally grateful for the carl lewis tip ********* have just reduced them and I was seriously considering it.

As for joining a gym, I would love to stuff what other people think, I just can't afford it, I am going to see if my Drs have any reduced fees schemes though.

Thanks again.

Everyones exercise preferences are different, but I personally like rowing machines for an all round work out.

Aldi have one in for £119.99 Go here then choose special offers.

The benefit of buying from Aldi, is that they offer a 1 year, no quibble return guarantee on ALL their goods, so should you not like it, or it break for any reason you can take it back for a cash refund.

i have a fantastic delta gravity walker really heavy duy unlike lots on the market and it is the only machine i can use for ages and not find too boring .i spend an hour on it a day same as my husband it is low impact but really works .my husband lost four stone it took his weight and he was 18 stone.

We got a Tony Little Gazelle Platinum Plus from QVC last year. Theres a similar model here(can't vouch for this site I've never used it) or on QVC who have a 30 day money back guarantee.

The picture makes it look v small but it is quite big :) Good machine but wouldn't bother with the dvd that comes with it. Maybe have a look about for some more reviews and opinions on it.

ive had a gravity walker and i would recommend them, stick on a cd or watch the tv and you forget what your doing (almost), i used an ab roller too, cheap and they do work if you stick with it! :) though to look at me now you'd never believe me! :00ps:

that is exactly what i use. mine is the infiniti delta gravity plus and it has no noise to it and is not high impact so although it fills the bedroom i use it everyday .and for the tummy i use my ab trimmer which is boring but worth it easier than normal sit ups .

Hmmm the gravity walker seems to be the perfect thing I am looking for, I am slightly worried about the weight limit on it (yes really) I have lots lots lots to lose but I am going to do a quick search to see what I come up with now I know the name. Thanks

I bought one of these tonight and first impressions are VERY good.

It has a full 3-year guarantee with service hotline (landline 01 number). I am not aware of any other rower with this kind of guarantee at anywhere near this price.

It is heavy (32KG) so is stable - much heavier than most at this price. They flywheel is 8kg, again much better than anything else at this price. I have allot of experience with rowers and I'd say that this is a cheap mans Kettler Coach (these retail at approx £360). The rowing rail is solid aluminium.

Can give you an update when I've given it a good try out. There were a couple of washers missing from mine so I can't finish assembling it. It is better than most in this regard too - it is nearly fully assemble in its box and you only have to attach the front foot, pedal stops and pedals.

:thumbsup:
