I purchased a spin bike, had tried them and liked them, but I find I am not using it because it hurts my knees and it stresses my neck and shoulders from how I must be positioned on the seat/handle bars. I want to get a machine of some kind……I used to have a treadmill and sold it, but I want something aerobic that will also tone…..do you have any recommendations? I am also looking at the Bowflex Tread Climber…it says it combines, stair, elliptical and treadmill for low impact and I really need low impact. If it hurts me, I won’t do it…..thanks for any light you can shed.
I’ve had an issue with my knee. After 40 years of running I can’t believe I am having problems. Anyhow, I’ve been using the elliptical trainer, without raising the incline. When I raise the incline I can feel the strain. However, I have also been using the treadmill with the incline raised to 10%. I have been following this routine for the last six months and it has gradually allowed my to start running again. Although I limit my running to the treadmill and not the asphalt street.
