New X Trainer arrives

Well today I received my new x trainer - to go with my treadmill! Pictures above.

I was determined to assemble the whole thing myself and i did! I actually enjoyed the whole process.

Heading out to do morning cardio is not always possible with Mikes work schedule so we decided upon adding to the existing treadmill by purchasing the x trainer. We are thinking we might even add a third item - a spin bike. I have ridden the "body bike" many times before and love the feel and stability of these bikes.

Both pieces are made by Life Fitness - I have the T7 treadmill and the X7 x trainer. Both models are semi commercial and are a breeze to use - well as much as cardio gear can be a breeze - easy controls, and very user friendly.

You know where you will find me tomorrow morning - on my x-trainer, overlooking the pool with palms and frangipani tree in the background - sounds like a good view in paradise for me! Team it with my Bose sound dock for good tunes and early morning cardio will be GREAT!

The number 100!

I'm feeling a little sore tomorrow and dread what tomorrow might bring. You may ask why?

For the first time EVER I did 100kg for dead lifts last night! My back is a strong body part and i use this to my advantage!

My training is still going GREAT and more importantly so is my diet!

I am heading back to Qld soon to do another 10 days of training with my AMAZING trainer - Kristy

Just a quick post - I am looking forward to a quick cat nap while my little man is asleep - we have had unsettled nights. He has a viral infection.
