    The thing is with stationary bikes, they are a great starter piece of equip but when using my heart rate monitor (accurate, not the one on the bike) i burnt less than half the calories in the same amount of time. In the beginning transitioning into exercise it was fine, and i lost weight but it didnt last long before i needed something else (elliptical) which kick started everything again.

    I'm considering a cheap one from eBay or gum tree. Sometimes the hire price ends up mounting to be the cost of a new one or decent second hand one.

    Yes, I agree. I would never recommend just doing the one exercise. I usually do a mixture at the gym and use the bike as an extra when trying to lose the baby weight - home exercise equipment particularly helpful when kids are sick and can't get out. Our bike is currently holding the kids hats whilst I'm utd!

    I bought mine off ebay. I think it was about $500? Came with a 5 year warranty and I haven't had any issues with it.

    I'm a big walker but due to the humid wet season we have here I bought a treadmill, it's an industrial one as I didn't want cheap rubbish that wouldn't last. I use it all the time. Dh has his gym also so we don't need motivation as we have always enjoyed our exercise.

    I have a treadmill. It's just buried in other stuff in my office. I just cannot get the motivation to use it. I've tried but nothing beats being outside for me. I also find I get so bored on a treadmill.

    It's called Lifespan. I bought it back in 2012 though.
