    I'm from Michigan, and we get winter here as well. My preferred cardio is road biking, so that is out during the winter. The obvious thing is to have an indoor solution. For me, it's a road bike...

    I did a lot of research previously on rowers. I didn't end up buying one, but, as mentioned, the Concept II Model is the "Gold Standard". I also thought the Sole SR500 looked good, and was priced...

    I've been down the same path. Looked at multi-vitamins from a reputable fitness brand, and wondered exactly the same thing. Still taking the Men's One A Day here, along with a few other things.
