I wanted your guy's feedback on the jacob's ladder cardio machine. I'm planning on going to a different gym to test it out and I wanted some feedback from some people who have used it and there thoughts about it!

I've never heard of this machine, but I looked it up and it seems like it would be a great workout. I like the cybex arc trainer a lot, but all really good cardio machines have the same idea: low impact exercise for upper and lower body simultaneously. With a weight vest, this thing could probably be strength and cardio training simultaneously.
Just do bear crawls (at your local high school stadium to up the intensity). Save yourself a butt load of money.

For a heck of a full body cardio workout it would be a nice machine. as a spectator sport its even better than the stair climber.
Cardio though is either for working the heart muscle or for burning calories, to me for either of these purposes I don't need or really want a machine that makes me work my ass off. I just need something that makes my heart get going or keeps me moving.
FOr a home gym this this is completly useless, it's huge, and extremely expensive. FOr a similar worout the Versaclimber takes up a ton less space and costs less. Actually with the versa climber even the spectator value is higher because there are sometimes several in a row.
