   Gary, I certainly don't mean to hog the post ... but this morning, I had an epiphany  (word of the day)! Though an immediate negative for this, is a larger RV is needed. One of the recliners or something similar could be removed, and in it's place put (just an example) a Schwinn Airdyne. In our 5er it would fit where we put a chest freezer, which we're not going to get rid of  ;)!  I measured our Airdyne, it's only 48" long and easily movable! For those folks, who, for whatever reason cannot use a bike outside,this offers a good arobic exercise. As a plus, for those with a knee or leg issues, they can use "only" the handles (it has a footrest). You can still get the arobic benefits, and also upper body toning!

Great idea Todd. Having your workout gear with you and accessible makes it much more likely that you will stick with it.

Todd, we took out the recliner and put a cat condo in it's place.  After we make sure the cats are comfortable, we take care of ourselves.  Hasn't always been that way, but WE learned.   ;D

    Sarge, that is a pretty neat set-up. I'm sure that somewhere in our basement, we could put a little equipment.....maybe   ???  !

Thanks, that space was originally intended for a pull out freezer, which I have no use for. After a little thought I realized that pull out slide was perfect for the workout stuff. Diane's weights fit in nicely as well. The slide tray has a 200# full extension weight capacity.

Looks interesting, I will have to look at it better when I get some time.

     Raymonda would tell people about her exercise program:
Strolling---down memory lane
running---off at the mouth
jumping---to conclusions
pushing your luck

2 push ups--- putting on her bra.

I hope God is enjoying her.

This site looks good. As I'm heading home soon I might use it to get fit for next year's trip! Thanks for sharing.

We carried two bikes for a couple of years and actually road them a bit but have spilled twice and DW isn't doing much so we left them home this time as we currently motor south from the PNW. I play pickleball whenever I can and really need to start using the resistance bands which I have in the coach but have mostly been ignored. Pickleball can be hard on the body, but really find the exercise beneficial on a number of levels.

We are determined to walk as much as possible and try to limit late night snacks as excessive weight can be a real problem as we age, especially on joints. Actually feel pretty good as I hit 70 in a few weeks. The heat and dryness of the desert definitely helps the aches and pains.

We walk most days. Judy supplements with step aerobics and light weights and some weight training for me.
