My least favorite piece of fitness equipment is the elliptical. Since I am still dealing with my injured foot, I have been spending a lot of time on ellipticals and have started to dread working out.
Spending 30-40 minutes on this boring machine is complete torture. My mind wanders, I get easily irritated by those around me (especially the ones running on the treadmills!) and end up wishing the minutes away. Sometimes, with the help of a good magazine or TV show, I can occupy my mind long enough to get a fairly decent workout.
Is this for real? Is a toddler/small child really going to find this thing FUN? What happened to just good old fashioned playing?
What do you think, do kids really need adult style fitness equipment? and while I have your attention, what is your least favorite piece of exercise equipment?
