My New Home-Trainer

I just got back home in Maastricht from spending Easter weekend at home in Schiedam with my parents! But more on that later…

Last year I visited my gym at least 3 times a week, and also went to a yoga class. Since we’ve moved to a different apartment (in a different part of town), the gym is just too far away from my home! I looked at gyms closer to my home, but I couldn’t find one I like and frankly, I didn’t mind the extra 40 euros I saved monthly by not belonging to a gym!

However, I did miss the regular work-out! So I have been looking for ways to do my workouts at home.. This weekend I finally found something I have been looking for for a long time!

Meet my newest workout buddy! 

I got my very own home-trainer! Yah! :D I bought this baby secondhand for just €30 ($40)!

It’s got wheels in the front so I can wheel it through the house easily and set it up in a comfortable place. Like say, in front of the TV or in my room so I can listen to music.

It’s a pretty simple model, but it’s got some nice features. It’s got different resistance settings and the display tells me my time, distance and even my heart rate!

It’s comfortable enough, although the stride is a bit short.

I can definitely work up a good sweat on my new bike! and all in the comfort of my own home, with water and a shower nearby! ;) I’m sure I’ll get great use out of it. And all that for just a €30 investment! Between the bike and my yoga mat, I do believe I’ve got a pretty good home gym set up! ;)

    Working out a home saves so much time! I have a couple videos, but living on the third floor, I’m pretty sure my neighbors don’t like me doing jumping jacks and high knees! A bike sounds great, especially since you can watch tv while riding it :)
