Comments: 30 minutes a day, six days a week and I've gone from 256 to 218 in just a little over 3 months. I use this machine for an aerobic workout prior to using another machine for strength training. I have found the combination of the two very beneficial to losing not only pounds, but inches from my waist & thighs. I found it easy to get started however my ill coordinated friend cannot use the skier, he is stuck on a bike which just doesn't do the same.
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.
