Gazelle Exerciser

I am 60 and just received one from my daughter who is moving.
Do you find that they make exercising easier?
How long have you had it?
I am still having trouble with figuring out the miles, calories and things LOL, can you help?

Thank you,
Snofyre

  • My friend's parents got one of these and loved it. It got them into further exercise. I think if you haven't been an exerciser it is a good start. If you have been working out for a few years, you may not find it challenging enough. My mom just got a treadmill at 70 years old. I encourage her all the time and she loves it. Don't worry about the calories and miles--just work on building up your time. Do a search to figure out how to take your heart rate and go by that when you are using it. Good luck and I hope it is a great start for you:-)
