Slowly Conquering the Crosstrainer of Death!

I'm a bit keen on the whole gym thing and I figure if I'm paying for it then I may as well get my worth out of it. So I went yesterday morning after I dropped Caeligh at kindy yesterday and did 20 minutes on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the bike, shifted a total of 300kg on the chest press (and oh yeah baby I'm feeling it this morning!!!! lol) and then I did TEN WHOLE MINUTES on the Crosstrainer of Death!!!! I was so impressed. I only did six minutes a couple of days ago and was hoping to just better it - even by a minute - but I felt okay so just put my head down and kept going until I got to the ten minute mark. I can say though that the last minute and a half were hard!!!!

Went in again last night and figured I'd try a different approach so I hit the Crosstrainer of Death as soon as I arrived. I figured I'm already tired by the time I get to it after doing the treadmill and bike first so I wanted to see how far I could go so I jumped on and did 15 MINUTE plus a 3 minute cool down. I was so impressed with myself cos I was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to do much more than 10 minutes.

I'll let you in on a secret though - the Crosstrainer of Death actually burns about 50% more calories than either the treadmill or the bike and I figure if I can get more results with less time then maybe the Crosstrainer of Death is going to become my favourite machine!!!!
