  • I don't see why you couldn't adapt the video in some way, but if you do not have a video yet why not look into some that are for elliptical owners.

  • Stair Stepper... I have a compact one that I stick in the closet, technically could stick it under the bed... check freecycle and Craigs List for those that bought thinking they'd use it but it ended up collecting dust... ~*Smiles*~ (I've done that)

  • Walking videos, such as Leslie Sansone's WATP's and The Biggest Losers Power Walk don't use treadmills....they are walking in place, knee lifts, kicks, side steps, etc....

    You can see one of Leslie's 1 mile walking videos and even try it FREE all the time on the Exercise on Demand channels website here: http://www.exercisetv.tv/workout-videos/walking/1-mile-walk-2786

  • I use the "walk away the pounds" videos by Leslie Sansone. I have many of her dvd's and her work outs are great.
