The treadmill at the school cost $5,000. I could never afford one like that for home. I guess schools have money for all kinds of things. We also have an eliptical of which I can't do very long on. I am sticking to the treadmill and will be working up to a 1/2 hour on it. I am already up to 25 minutes. I did the variety workout on Friday where you climb some hills. I also ran on it for a wee little bit. It is a great stress buster.
Thanks so much for the dumb bell spark goody! Wow, Good luck with getting your gym aerobics teacher to consider putting a class with weights on the schedule! Best Wishes and hope it all works out! -Risa
