Ultimate cross-training workout

A few years ago, my father-in-law lived in Chicago and we went for a visit. I had just started running and he saw how fit I had become. He was eager to show me a new machine he had bought. I had seen it before on infomercials during those late nights when I had to walk around the house for hours trying to get my daughter to burp after her late-night feeding. Anyway, I am always wary about those infomercials, but I figured if Chuck Norris endorses this product, it had to be good. So when he opened up the box and I helped him put it together (rather easily, I might add) I was anxious to take it for a test ride.

I followed the exercises on the pamphlet and quickly felt the burn in my arms, legs, and abs. This thing was really cool. And we easily folded it up to slide it under his bed afterward. During the 4 days we were there, I used it every day - it was just so simple to use and get a total body workout so quickly.

When we returned home, I thought about buying one, and have had it on my wish list ever since but we so don't have room in our house for a home gym - yet. I will be getting one as soon as we finish our renovations, however. So anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to cross paths with Total Gym recently and can't help but recommend this great product for the ultimate cross-training workout. Check out the video on the right sidebar and please let me know what your experience has been with Total Gym.

Keep on running ;-)
