Sure, have you ever used a pedometer to track your daily distance?

Got to the gym today, 5 minutes on the bike 20 minutes hills on the stepper, 15 minutes on the rower and 10 minutes on the eliptical.

I am going to work a lot harder next week, but not bad considering my jet lagged state!

Ah I haven't heard them called an EFX before, we have eliptical cross trainers at the gym, I use one a lot. We also have a device called a cardio wave which is similar except the foot plates go out, as if your were speed skating. And your arms are still. It gives an awesome butt workout! And strengthens the knees.

Yep Kyles! I'm beginning to feel the "awsome butt workout" too! Hee hee I've been at it for a month now and started to see results. I tried the cardio wave but I need to develop a feel for it still. Enjoy your workout.
