I have now moved my pro-form cross trainer machine a total of 6 times. I値l bet I致e had more of a workout just moving the thing than I ever got using it. I was wondering it other Fiero nuts have the same dilemma. My wife wants me to sell it, but nobody in their right mind would pay what it cost. I知 sure I知 going to workout with it someday soon. LOL
Meanwhile, I need to rest, my arms are sore from moving it.

i used to use my home gym alot in high school. but i was the 90lb wuss trying to bulk up for football. now i admit that i rarely work out at home. i find that going to the gym is much better.

a. im spending money regardless if i go or not so i better go.

b. i look pretty darned good now so i dont have n e complexes about being small.

c. the girl at the front counter is cute, not to mention a few members too . but seriously i only check them out after my workout... kind of an award or something.

LOL, Robert! I feel your pain...it's really hard to stick with an exercise program when you're doing it by yourself. Is there anyone who will work out with you? Your wife, maybe?

I have been lifting free weights off and on since I was a freshman in high school. I got started because at 5'6" and 135 lbs, I was tired of taking sh*t from bullies. Then I got addicted to it. Over the years I've taken layoffs of as long as 2 years, mainly because I couldn't find a partner, and exercise is incredibly boring when you're doing it alone.

Right now I've been lifting with the same guy for about two years. We're on a maintenance routine...we're not trying to get bigger, we're just trying to keep our chests and shoulders proportional to our beer bellies. I'm now 195 lbs, of which I'd guess about 30 lbs is lard (pizza and beer).

That scale swinging up near 200 is like a flashing sign: "Caution: Middle Age Ahead!"

I use my weight machine all the time.
It holds 15 shirts and about 8 pairs of pants.

The only thing wrong with lifting weights is they're so darned heavy.

I get to use a different one everyday when I have to deliver the bloody things from my package car to the front door. That's all the workout I need for the day! That and Gateways!!

I sold my machine, I couldn't take the frustration of losing my heartrate changing things for the next muscle group.
Now I use a bench that also inclines, a bunch of dumbells, and chinning/dip bars, more room in the house this way.
Since I like lots of butter on my popcorn and have been known to eat a half gallon of ice cream at one sitting all this exercise barely keeps me at 20% bodyfat.

I have 2 machines. That is one advantage to owning a Fiero (I've had for 9 months). It will fit in my 2 stall garage with them and my wood saws and wire welder. My 76 Buick Skylark conv (I've had for 24 years) has to sit ouside with my 61 Studebaker Lark(I've had for 26 years). Now you know where my prioritys are with my cars.

Ive found that excercising is darn near impossible to do by yourself. You (I) really have to have someone else with you (me) or else you (I) dont stick to it for more than a week.

I have a very dusty excercise bike and rowing machine. (Neither of which are good at holding clothes )

(I read my first statment and put my revisions in parentheses just in case there are those out there with more willpower than me )

I just have a bunch of weights and barbells loaded up to max weigbt lying around the floor in my batchelor pad. It seems to impress the chicks, even though I'd probably throw my back out trying to pick one of them up and do some reps. LOL

I don't have a weight machine but have been having to do free weights and exercises daily to rehabilitate my left knee after having ACL surgery. Man, I never did that much working out BEFORE surgery. As soon as I am recovered enough to work the clutch again, those weights and exercises are history.
