This year, I decided not to get a gym membership and instead decided I would get a 1up Bicycle Trainer after doing some research on the internet. It is more expensive than most trainers out there but let me tell you it is a great piece of engineering. It is solid and sturdy and I don’t need a front block. There is no mess and it provides me a great workout. I also recently purchased the first 1.0 Spinerval DVD, No Slackers Allowed. Yeah, it kicks my ass. I set up the bike in the spare bedroom so that I have to look at it and it calls out to me when I’m being a slacker. I do miss fitness classes though but until I’m going regularly I don’t think I should commit myself to a gym membership plus we have mini-gyms at the office and in our complex. Can’t wait till I get over this cold!
