Okay, so this is the opposite of a donut, but...
Does anyone have a "smart" home treadmill or bike? I've been loosely interested in them for a while, but didn't want to spend Peloton money really and also didn't know about the alternatives.
I'm a light runner (~15mi/week in warm months), but do not run outside in cool months (exercise asthma) nor do I go to a gym or have a treadmill today. I'm also not the biggest treadmill fan, but think I could maybe get into it if I had a giant screen with someone encouraging me or with a good view to immerse me.
Conversely, I am not a biker, but mostly I think just because I always feel like I am on the verge of dying biking outside (cars). I actually think I'm more prone to bike inside vs run, but not totally sure, as I've never had either.
I've gotten interested in this deal from ProForm where you buy 3 years of their subscription service (iFit) and you get the bike or treadmill for free. Which is, by far, the best deal available in this market. The issue with the treadmill is that the screen is barely bigger than your phone; I don't have an issue with the bike (screen is iPad-sized) per se, but I'm wondering if it's better to just bite the bullet and get something better if you're going to do it. Granted, I don't know if something IS better. I just don't know.
What I do know is that, I think especially with the pandemic and us taking lockdown seriously for a variety of reasons, I'm more interested that ever in getting some serious home gym equipment.
So long story short, finally - anyone have any opinions on smart home gym equipment?
