Do you have a lower extremity injury that doesn’t allow you to use typical cardiovascular machines at the gym?
Or do your legs ever just need a break? As a Nurse Practitioner, I spend a lot of time on my feet (as seen above!) And as a triathlete, I commonly have an injury that prevents me from running. Machines similar to the one pictured below are available at the KROC Center. I encourage you to check this out if your legs need a break from cardio.
You can still get in a cardiovascular workout while taking care of those legs. Here’s your solution, an ergometer machine (see picture below) allows you to strengthen your arms and get cardiovascular exercise at the same time.
