Yet another newbie question should I keep my schwin airdyne?
 
I have a commercial treadmill and a Concept model C rower and am wondering if keeping the airdyne makes sense since as with alot of folks my space is limited. I have a couple of decent bikes sized for me and a place to ride outside.


I started to acquire weights and some other equipment and realize more is needed :rolleyes:

So what say ye- keep it or get rid of it?

Thanks in advance...

Give it to grandma..or an injured MMA fighter.

I'll take the other side of this (sort of). They just bought one for my gym (Rogue). Not that it gets much work. But it can be integrated into Tabatas at the very least.

I'd get rid of the Airdyne and use the money and space for something with more CF value.

John is right in that you could use the bike for Tabatas, but I'd personally opt for some other more frequently used Tabata-friendly gear and use the vacated space for the Tabatas themselves. Medball(s), kettlebell(s), etc....

Cheers,

Mark

Agreed, 100%.

BTW, I have my bike on a $50 indoor trainer all winter. Just as good as an Air-Dyne, just as monotonous! :rofl:

I happen to like my Airdyne... I say keep it and just wheel it off to the side when you're not using it. But that's just me

Get rid of the rower and keep the Airdyne. Just as good and takes up less space. Also you will get a good price for it.

I think John wants to buy your rower.

Hmmm... I gotta go with keeping the Airdyne.

For interval training, I think it is the best thing out there short of actually doing track intervals. It feels better to me than rowing (when doing max intensity 10-20 sec intervals) and I have the Waterrower, which feels a lot smoother than the C2 IMHO.

How much space does it really take up?
