Oh Summit Trainer, You Have Much To Learn About Me

Last week I mentioned the evil, hateful machine that had me gasping after 10 whopping minutes. Turns out it’s a LifeFitness Summit Trainer. I wasn’t worried about the fact that it burned me in so little time, the step mill did the same thing the first time I got on it.

The cruelty of this machine is that the motion is step-like, similar to a stepmill, but there is no momentum, like the elliptical. If you don’t move the machine doesn’t move so the motion is initiated by your legs. Your very sad, unhappy legs.

After my chest/back workout last night I had my sights set on sweaty, heart thumpy, air gaspy cardio. I headed to the cardio room, pointed a fan at me (highly recommended), and bitch slapped that Summit Trainer for 40 minutes.

I am so earning my one Guinness tomorrow night.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
