2. Can you try before you buy?

I dislike the feel of the cheap home machines. I scored a Precor elliptical at a thrift shop for about $300 and have loved it. But it would have been several thousand dollars new. Another idea, look for a used spin class bike. Those are really smooth to exercise on, don't take a ton of space and are relatively inexpensive.

I second looking on Craigslist. People get tired of giving up the floor space for the exercise machines that they aren't using and sell them cheap.

Another idea, I have a small trampoline that I bought for my son's OT. But it is also fun for short cardio sessions and didn't cost much.
