    I will probably visit Dixons ...

  • At home elliptical / stepper recommendation?
    Looking for a recommendation for an at home elliptical or stair stepper...preferably under $500, under $200 even better. Doesn't have to be fancy, just something to generate a sweat on the days I can't make it to the gym.

    Sturdy enough to support someone over six feet, and over 200 lbs...

    Thanks!
