What exercise equipment do you like the best?
How much of a difference does it make in body/health results in the quality and cost of exercise equipment? In looking at the various treadmills and cycle machines, the prices can vary a lot. Which machines do you consider the best, and what do you feel will give you the same results, but quality equipment at a more reasonable price? Thinking of turning an unused bedroom into exercise space. The room is like 12X12. What pieces would you consider your most important equipment choices to fit in that space, and why? meaning which pieces accomplish what exactly? For example, a cycle gets your heart rate up, but what results and what area of your body gets in shape using a cycle machine? Ditto on treadmills, and other equipment you believe strongly in.
Please feel free to list your favorite brand/model and why you chose that one.
