    Think lucky has one, I have an eliptical trainer.......and love using it, I did have a plain old stepper and could use it foe ages without getting a little out of breath. The eliptical trainer is good it works ur legs, arms, etc and your heart and lungs, I do get slightly out of breath too.
    I have managed to increase the distance too.

    Good luck with whichever piece of equipment you choose.

    I bought one of those gazelle's off the tv - didnt last too long on it - I was getting hip pain with it - i think its because it makes you do an unnatural movment as you dont bend your knees.

    It is so bloody heavy as well - it is now gathering dust under my bed at the moment.

    I've got one. If you want to bend your knees you can. I'm still on crutches - 3 weeks post hip replacement operation - and can use this using the bar for partial weight-bearing. Some of the time I lean forward onto the bar and using bent knees push the peddles backwards - the angle is almost like climbing a hill but without the tension. It really makes for a cardio workout for me.
