Wrestling with the Tall People's Elliptical with Arms. September 7, 2011

Briefly worked out at the new gym today.

Elliptical Machine with Arms
Tried out one of those elliptical machines with the arms.

Seriously, there should have been a warning sign on this machine saying, "For Tall Folks Only."

It seemed that to use this machine comfortably, your stride must be considerably longer than the length of any of my strides.

In addition, I used the preset cardio workout program on this machine.  The resistance at times was too much.  There were times I literally had to shift all of my weight onto one of the foot levers in an attempt to get the lever down.

After my wrestling with the Tall People's Elliptical with Arms, I moseyed over to the stationary bicycle section.

Stationary Bicycle
The next machine I got on was a stationary bicycle.  Fortunately, it was for a person of my size.  But, on the other hand, the machine thought I was a ghost.  My heart rate was listed at "0" for a good chunk of my time on it.

I really wished I was at my old gym instead where the equipment ain't so odd.

Guestimate calories burned for the day:  400


  1. Ha ha! My wife has one of those. And no - she's not tall either....

  2. @Glenn - Hopefully, you are tall enough for it.
