the old Nordic Track Achiever has been in our laundry, a little idle, gathering dust. it is a great way to exercise when the weather is not cooperating, like now, with the rainy, windy conditions of Hawaii. It's now winter in Hawai, and these past few days have been days when you can't go outdoors. The Nordic Track is a great way to get exercise into your routine without having to deal with the weather. You can vary the exercises on the Nordic Track. You can go as long as you want to or as little as you need to. The Nordic Track takes a bit of space in the laundry room; however, it can be a convenient "clothes rack" for some days. The heart monitor keeps track of the heart beat, the minutes elapsed on the machine, and even the calories burned. The only thing is to get motivated to start doing the exercises on the Nordic Track. Once you get started, it is hard to stop. You can challenge yourself to get more done daily.
