Dee,
Tell me about your new elliptical trainer. How do you like it? Is the "motion" of it good, like one you'd use at a gym? If I may ask, how much did it cost? We'll be probably purchasing a piece of equipment this fall (hopefully an elliptical!) and I was just wanting to hear more about it. Thanks!

Jen24: I love the elliptical. It's a ProForm CrossTrainer 820 (I think). I got it at Sears on sale for 399, original 499. I think it's still on sale. The motion is pretty good, maybe not absolute top of the line, but it's definitely not bad. The foot pedals are adjustable, so that helps. One of the things I like best is that it's quiet. It doesn't generate much sound. I like that 'cause now when I want to sit and watch mindless tv, I feel more inclined to use my elliptical and watch because I will be able to hear it. The display features include your rotations per min, minutes per mile, time, heart beat, resistance, calories burned, fat calories burned...I think that's all. Oh, it also has a fan to cool you and a bottle holder. =) Aren't I the sales woman? =)
