The week before we left for vacation I put together the elliptical I bought a few weeks back. I was really tired of paying for a gym membership that we barely used each month due to timing conflicts. I figured the money spent each month for the gym could be spent on the first piece of our home gym, which will get more use because we can use it when we feel like it.
I purchased the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 elliptical after reading several promising reviews online and since NordicTrack’s owner ICON Fitness is the world’s leader in fitness equipment. You can read the full specs on the elliptical here. Jamie really likes this elliptical because it has adjustable ramp incline settings for more resistance.
My sister has gotten the most use out of it so far since she’s the only one that really had some free time. Between packing for vacation and work Jamie and I had been pretty swamped. Jamie spraining her ankle two days before vacation didn’t help either, but that story is for another post.
