Yes, the class I am taking is for rank beginners at our park district. They have several levels that will probably keep me busy for a while.

We have no basement (slab on grade) and thought that it would be too noisy in our upstairs family room. any experiences out there?
I was thinking about setting mine up in the trash can!

Seriously, my wife bought it several years ago and after she passed away it just sat there. I tried to use it a couple of times, but just couldn't get into it. Even bought a TV to set up in front of it. It is a high end model. We bought a cheaper one, but it was done after about a year so we bought an expensive one. Last month I suddenly had high blood pressure so I will keep it for next winter when I can't go outside. I'll have a walkout basement so it will go in the lower level family room looking out over the mountains. That should help the enthusiasm.

All exercise equipment should go in the garage. That way, when you have a garage sale to get rid of it (for pennies on the dollar) you won't need to lug it...just let the buyer take it away

Been lifting weights since 20 years old (back when the first Wells Fargo stage coach crossed the west). Probably die on a weight bench in a gym somewhere...
