    Since you’re looking for something for cardio, I would say a treadmill or a stair climber. But if I could only buy one piece of workout equipment, it would definitely be a kettlebell! You can do lots of cardio stuff with one of those.

    jennmariee:  It does have to do with my size. I’m curvy with a “perfect” hourglass figure, but I could definitely lose some weight, but I do carry it really well. As a former athlete (volleyball) who wants to now get into a new challenge (sand volleyball), I also have a lot of muscle. I have bigger legs, but it’s mainly all muscle. I can definitely kill someone in a workout who is a lot smaller than me, I’m just really self conscious. This would be the only time of year I could run outside, too. It’s so hot here from March to October that I sweat profusely just standing outside for five minutes.

    That and I don’t trust drivers around here. Like that one person who sped up to get into the turn lane, used no turn signal, when the light was yellow. Bad enough on a bike. Drivers around here (Florida) suck, which is why I don’t drive at 22.

    Also say Treadmill. If you use it correctly it can and will work your whole body. When I had one in my house. I lost 60lbs. Mind you I was eating more healthy but I was having a blast walking and running sometimes 3 miles to up to 6 miles a day. It was great for my body and I felt amazing!

    Hands down a rowing machine. It works the major muscle groups, is a low-impact exercise with adjustable resistance, and you can have a nice easy stretch or a 2k test that leaves you shaking and on fire with lactic acid or anything in between. Plus the fish game on those Concept2 models is pretty cute.

    Adjustable hand weight sets. You can find all sorts of cardio workouts, but weights really amp up the weight loss.
