...and so far we just love having it here. It's so convenient and you're left with *no* excuses, lol.

(Two main reasons for the exercise bike over the treadmill or something else: 1) heck of a lot cheaper, and 2) takes up way less space and we don't have much of it in our apartment to begin with.)

I cancelled my gym membership too at the end of the summer, for financial reasons, but I still have access to a gym through my school. However, while the weight room is tolerable, the cardio area is always insanely overcrowded and you always have to wait for a machine. So it made a lot more sense (financially, and for convenience) to stop paying $40 a month for the gym and to instead shell out the dough for a bike at home.

The one we have is an upright bike made by Pro-Form. It wasn't too expensive and so far it's working great. My parents actually have the treadmill made by the same company so they recommended it to us. It (the treadmill) is nice too, I used it in the summer. It has a heart rate monitor, an incline, and a nice track image to let you see how far you've run. Not sure how much that cost though.

I think if there were no financial or space constraints, I'd probably buy a rowing machine (ergometer) actually. That's an incredible full-body workout.
