Cross trainer

Exercise helps maintains or enhance Physical fitness and overall health. I should say, it is important part of our daily activity. Health is wealth so we must therefore take extra care on how to maintain it. Warm days here in Germany is just so short and therefore outdoor activities would only be enjoyed for few months. Though winter sports could also be an option. Despite the long cold season, I noticed that Germans are really health conscious and most of them are really into sports. My sister was actually very amaze to see a lot of fit mothers. Mothers who are already back in shape yet pushing a pram with a 2-3 month old baby is a common sight. Even during winter, I often see a lot of people jogging although of course dress in warm clothing. Although I have a great appreciation for such enthusiasm,I just cannot do that. I'm very much lazy for that. I prefer my winter days spent inside and kept warm. So Jerome and I thought of having cross trainer and last monday it arrived. All of us were both excited how to use it. Although at first I was a bit hesitant about it because we are really out of space. This machine would eat up a lot of space in the apartment,that for sure. But then, as we discuss the pro's and cons, I finally gave in to the idea of having one.I should say the installation itself would make you fit. It's horribly heavy. I think it's around 60 kg. My hubby do the installation all alone. Kinda warming up at the same time.=) I tried the fitness test and I enjoyed it. Here's the pic of the elliptical that we bought:
For an apartment like we have which is so small, then this is just too big. But then, we just don't care as long as this can be a big help.
