Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: The Best and Worst Times of an Elliptical

The Best and Worst Times of an Elliptical

Last week I wandered over to Planet Fitness on Stockton Blvd. in south Sacramento to check it out. I like this particular club because they are all over the country so I can workout regardless of where I am. That particular gym in south Sacramento is huge, bigger than the gym in Kona, yet despite all of its size, there is no aerobic rowing machine.

Rows of ellipticals, step aerobics a/k/a the roadway to hell, and treadmills, bikes.

The rowing machine is my favorite because, obviously, I get to sit down. Just like I favor the leg extension piece of equipment because I get to lie down flat on my face. At least with the rowing machine, I am working both upper and lower a bit at the same time. Which was sort of the idea with the elliptical but for much longer periods of time.

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Best Days of an Elliptical.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents 
I have a treadmill and if I ever join a gym again it would be to have access to a rowing machine.  And, by-the-way, I agree with you about the elliptical.

Carol Williams I sold my treadmill 30 years ago and swore I would never buy another expensive exercise machine. That Precor cost as much as my first new car.

Hello Elizabeth - your last sentence in your personal blog post sums up the "feeling" perfectly - for an elliptical, a boat and dare I say a short sale(?).

Ellipticals are a fine source of exercise, Elizabeth.  But, for some crazy reason when I get on one, I can't get myself in sync to make them comfortable to work with.  I guess I'm just a swimmer!

Good morning, Elizabeth... could never wrap my mind around a rowing machine... I'm all about the treadmill and the elliptical myself. Different strokes for different folks, as they say... at the end of the day, what counts is what keeps you going with an exercise regime.

Good morning Elizabeth. This cracks me up. Exercise but on the down low. :)

Michael Jacobs When you think about it, that applies to a lot of things, LOL.

Myrl Jeffcoat Probably because there is no freeform allowed, you gotta keep the pace and keep walking or climbing. I imagine your free spirit would resent it.

Nina Hollander I imagine you are pounding the tread and running in place, which is something I would never in a million years do. Even if I could, and I can't.

Sheila Anderson Just trying to find the little silver rays of light in dreaded exercising, and yes, I try to not to overdo it. I figure if I were to pass out from sheer exertion on the rowing machine, I'm closer to the ground and less likely to injure myself.

HI Elizabeth... I neither pound nor run... stopped running 30 years ago. But I do fast walk.

I'm not a big fan of the elliptical nor of the treadmill, and prefer either the recumbent bike and more recently 3-4 spin classes a week.
