So I have been researching workout videos and I think I know which ones I want to pick up, but something else that I was looking at was getting an Elliptical machine. If you have a Elliptical, which model do you have and what do you like/not like about it?

Thanks in advance!

We were given one a few weeks ago, so I'm just getting used to it. It's an Eclipse something or other (I can look later). I like it, but I don't have anything to compare it to, because I've never used any other one.

I have one but I won't be very useful. Ours is a Weslo and I'm not sure what kind it is but dh bought a pallet of defective workout equipment at an auction so ours is not perfect. The display doesn't work on it and I can't adjust the tension. I still like using it because I get a good workout on it but it's not the best because it's defective. LOL.

We had a hand me down one for a while, used it only a handful of times. I personally didn't care to use it. I'm just one of those people that can't stand doing the same repetitive motion for a long time. I prefer my videos that let me move around the room and changes up every couple minutes.

Thank you for your help. I am researching a few models before making my decision. I just feel that at this point with an infant it is just too hard to try to make it to the gym. I love going to the fitness classes but it always seems like it is time for her to eat when it is time to leave. I am nursing so by the time I feed her, then drive 45 min. she is wanting to eat again during the class, which means I have to bring in a bottle of expressed milk. It is just a pain to organize it all.
