Hey Bulldinkie!

I'm so glad to see your post. Whoever was the numpty that told you it would not work obviously has their own issues to deal with. If I had a treadmill at home I'd rather be walking than sitting when watching TV. We don't have room at the present time but I'm still thinking about it.

Do you even notice now that you are cycling when doing these things? Making any exercise enjoyable is a plus - not to mention your heart health has probably improved dramatically!

You go girl! Burn that rubber!

Whoooo whoooooo!

I find that my treadmill time goes by faster and easier when there's something I can "do" while I'm walking/jogging. Some people can't manage to read while exercising, but I do. That really helps. If I had the space to put the treadmill in the same room as the TV, you bet I'd use it while watching videos or shows. I'd NEVER sit down to watch TV if I could be moving on something. A mini-trampoline or even just sitting on a Pilates ball can help with keeping some part of you active (even if it's just the abs) while you otherwise watch TV or play games.
Glad it worked for you! It just makes sense, doesn't it?

My husband rides the exercise bike every day, and plays his PSP or Nintendo DS while doing it. He originally weighed 225 when he started doing this about 3 years ago, now he weighs 175. It works!!

My feeling on it is, do what you gotta do to keep interested in doing the exercise. I always watch DVDs while on the bike or treadmill, myself.

its amazing how fast the hour goes by.It gets to be natural, your feet going while playing games.
