    ...wallet just not ready for the commitment.

    Does anyone know where I might purchase an indoor exercise bike, cheaply, online? (What am I saying, does anyone know..of course you guys know.) Used is okay, as long as it is not still sweaty or anything.

    Me, my thighs, my butt, and my stomach thank you.

    As a weight watchers lifetime member, I should know better than to eat as much as I do...but food just tastes so good. So I figure I'll do the next logical thing - buy an exercise bike and use it to hang laundry from.

    ps: If anyone does have a good lead on equipment that is like...REALLY...cheap, please help!

    ...5 years later when my Mom sold it in her own garage sale it had 5 miles on it

    Anyway, the point is there are thousands of pieces of almost brand new equipment out there just waiting for a new basement to hang out in

    So you're saying go out of my house, and go to my neighbors' garage sales? Sigh. When are folks going to start having online garage sales?? [perhaps the internet is starting to make me a little lazy and socially inept.]

    How's this? Has lots of bars for hangers and stuff. And it's a Scwinn too

    $25, 600 miles, near Philly... sounds like a deal.

    Hi Patrice, a bike is good, but so often they end up sitting in a garage.

    Resistance training is one of the best forms of exercise for women in the over 25 and up age group.
    Weightlifting exercises burn fat,increase bone and muscle mass and can burn calories for more than an hour after a workout!

    Try some weights,they keep you in shape, strengthen your bones,(so important because of Osteroporosis) and build muscle,of which women can lose up to half a pound a year.

    Once you get the weights and enjoy the workout, a punching bag and a pair of boxing gloves is another great way to get your parts moving, besides, it's a great anger management tool

    Sheesh!

    I've invested a great deal of time and money in my belly and I'm darned if I'm going to do anything to endanger it now...

    So, walking to the liquor store is exercise, right?

    All very very good suggestions. I might do a combo of them. I like the idea of riding a stationary bike while watching reality TV (sigh) and I also like the idea of lifting weights. And dancing while vacuuming...sounds lovely! Though that might only happen once or twice a month - ha ha.

    Heavily yours,

    I'd sell you ours, but then my wife would not have a place to hang clothes and stuff on it?

    What I always find funny is that those of us who really need to use it don't and my kids who ride for days on end think it is fun to ride for an hour on the exercise bike.

    I use to race bikes, so I know what I'm talking about on this subject....

    Rather than buying an exercise bike, buy a real bike and a mag trainer.

    Why? First you get a bike, which you can ride both indoors (boring) and outdoors (fun). Secondly, the mag trainer folds easily, fits a in a closet and has adjustable setting.

    Blackburn trainers are regarded as the best, though about two years ago, I sold my Blackburn wind trainer on eBay and turned around and bought a Performance Bike mag trainer and have been very happy with it. The difference between the mag trainer and the wind trainer is that the mag trainer is quiter and has adjustable settings, while the wind trainer builds resistance as you go faster. For most people, the mag trainer is a better choice.

    You can buy one used on eBay for $70-$100. I wouldn't pay more than $100 and if you're paitent, you won't have to.

    Hmmm, interesting...I have a bike already, but by the time I get home it's a little too dark to ride. If I got this "mag" thingie, I could just use the bike I have upstairs while watching American Idol (I'll have to edit out that tidbit later.) So what is a "mag"? I am going to look it up, for sure, but maybe others would like to know?

    Thanks, Netsweat!!

    Mag = magnetic.

    To use technical terminology, it's a disc thingy attached to a cylinder that places resistance on your bike's back wheel. The higher the setting, the more resistance is placed on your back wheel and the harder it is to pedal (think about pedaling uphill).

    For more information, here is one from the Performance web site.

    That's inertia! It works the same for human bodies as for the inanamate kind: A body tends to keep doing what it has been until something stops it. So, those who do a lot of exercise (your kids) will continue to do it even on an exercise bike unless something [a video game?] stops them. Those who *need to* exercise, though, have to overcome the inertia of sitting still!

    Humans also have extra motivation beyond the laws of physics--it feels good to keep on doing what you have been. The body tends to complain about any major change (increase or decrease) in activity until it gets used to it.

    That mag resistance thing is EXACTLY what I need. Plus, it'll make me want to go out of my home and actually ride outside someday. When the sweats fit better, of course.

    Magnets...inertia...so much to overcome. Sigh. No wonder most of america would rather pop diet pills.
