Hi Christy-I own an Orbitrek which I absolutely love. It only cost $200 but it has a lifetime warranty and it's very sturdy for it's size. I really get a great workout on it but you sound like you are in great shape so I'm not sure what level you would need to really get your already conditioned heart pumping. I know that when I crank up the resistance and use the arms my heart really pumps and I get an awesome workout
! What kind of machine does your step-mother own?
PS-Why don't you join our Elliptical/walker thread? We would love to have you post with us
