Does anyone have a Gazelle? I know a friend that doesn’t really use theirs and I could probably get one for cheap. I’ve been on it and its a really smooth ride, but I don’t know about the intensity. Any reviews?[/quote]
Unfortuntaley, I used to own one (and a six-second Abs, and a Bowflex…yeah yeah I know).
The Gazelle sucks. You would truly get a better workout by holding onto a pair of Dip handles and just swinging your legs as fast as you can (you’d look equally stupid, by the way). I gave mine away (yep - someone took it :).
Technically, the Gazelle I owned was of an early design with no resistance - maybe the ones with resistance are better, but I strongly doubt it. It creaked and groaned. It was also not big enough for me (and I’m only 5’10"). The built-in HR monitor was not even funny. On the plus side, I believe the supplied water bottle was OK though…
Get a skipping rope, or do Tabata bodyweight squats or a million other things.
For sale (still): six-second Abs and a Bowflex…
