    I've been a serious runner for many years. Unfortunately, between running and playing hardcourt tennis since I was a child, my knees are in pretty poor shape. I've tried to start back running recently, but my right knee especially has given me a lot of trouble. So I've decided that it may be time to find a low impact exercise that still give me a good cardio workout without the strain on my knees.

    After talking to a friend, he suggested an eliptical trainer. I had never heard of one, so I did some research. I like what I've read, but would like to hear a few more opinions before I buy one. Anyone here own or use one regularly? And if you do, what do you think?

    I use one 5 or 6 days a week in the gym. Much better than the treadmill and saves my knees.

    I play golf, so I get plenty of walking in, so the less stress I put on my body doing cardio the better.

    Maybe you should try getting a free pass at a local gym and testing one out for yourself so you can see if you really like it or not.
