it''s very personal which motion you prefer, which is why it''s great to try both if you have the chance. i''m partial to the precors...i injured my big toe a couple years ago and the running motion puts too much pressure on that toe. after a few days on a life fitness, i am sore and have to take a week off to recuperate. most of the precors at my gym have the arms that move as well.Date: 1/25/2007 10:20:39 PM
Good explanation shortblonde. And because I prefer running, it''s why I only like LifeFitess Ellipticals. The Precor machines just seem so unnatural to me. Plus, most Precor machines don''t have arms that move and that''s another deficit to Precor. I would prefer to mimic a natural run and include motion to both my upper and lower bodies.
i weighed myself at the gym after my workout today (45 minutes on the elliptical) and am happy to report that i lost another 2 pounds since last week, for a grand total of about 8 pounds in the past 6 weeks or so. yay!
