Comments: I have a hip problem that make it impossible to go up and downstairs or carry my bags throught the airport. Runs in the family and many mostly male members have artifical hips. I purchased my first Nordictrack Skier at least 20 years ago. I might just be me, but the no impact no twisting exercise is perfect. Still no artifical hip. Whenever my hop bothers me, a week on the skier fixes me back up. I'm on my second unit as I kept my first unit outside in northern California dur to lack of space. Anyone with a bad hip should give it a try.
A classic in the home fitness world, the Classic Pro Skier is still a fan favorite for its effectiveness. Smooth, natural motion of Nordic skiing offers exercise without injury or discomfort, while adjustable resistance and elevation let you easily adjust the intensity of your workout. Independent resistance controls for the arms and legs give you training variety. The LED feedback window tracks time, distance calories burned and pulse.
