Hey -
I have an Orbitrek elliptical that I've been using for awhile now. Its a cheapo elliptical. It doesn't have the techologies on it, like the heartrate monitor, or the calorie counter, or an incline. Basically it has a tension function and thats it. I'm wondering if I'm getting as good of a workout on my cheap elliptical as I could be on one at the gym, like a pre-core elliptical? Anyone who has used one please let me know.

paperdollme I see you're fairly new to 3FC ...

I have no idea about the Orbitrek and haven't read about it on this site yet... But if you are working up a good sweat are enjoying your workouts then by all means it must be good for you. I would suggest that after a couple of weeks you bring up the tension a bit and do other workouts like walking and some weight training or stretch band workouts, and you will be getting as good a workout as at any gym...

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress...
