To help fight the anxiety I have you all know I added water color painting to my routine and just recently I purchased a piece of exercise equipment, the Trio Trainer, to add to my now small home gym/office/craft room.
One of my favorite things to do is ride my bike daily in the summer every evening for 5 miles. I know how much better I feel when I do it so I decided to add a piece of equipment to our home.
When I used to work out at the gym my favorite equipment was the elliptical so my DIL found this piece that has everything I love all in one. It’s an elliptical trainer, recumbent exercise bike and an upright exercise bike and only takes up a small corner in my office.
I don’t know if you’ve looked for a trainer bike lately, but they all seem to be spin bikes on the market. That little seat is a big NO for me and it’s really not what I’m looking for. I want to ride a bike like an old lady, upright and all I have to do is hold on and pedal.
Now I can do both, ride a bike or use the elliptical, and sometimes I switch mid workout and do a little of both; which is fun. Any thing I can do to alleviate my anxiety is a win in my book. This model I purchased at Dunhams for $300, I felt that was a good price for what it does.
The only down fall is it took me 2 hours to assemble it. I had to laugh and say that in itself was a workout. Did you happen to notice the BIG seat and backrest? Best features ever for this old gal. I place my ipad on the space provided and listen to a sermon while I workout. I think I’m going to enjoy this piece of equipment for the winter months until I can get back outdoors again.
