For the love of the Nordic Track Skier...


Seriously, I love this thing. I'm sure that I've given the backstory of my love affair with the Nordic Track pro-skier, but here it is again, in detail:


1995: My parents bought the Nordic Track skier, back in the peak of its popularity. I wasn't allowed near it.


1997: We moved the Nordic Track with us from Hawaii to Nebraska, where it was almost immediately forgotten about, stored in the corner somewhere (I think in the basement?)


2002: The Nordic Track moved with us again from Nebraska to Tennessee, only to be stored in a corner again, collecting dust.


2010: The Nordic Track skier found its new "forever-home" with me. It is used several times a week and (if objects had feelings, of course) is happier than its been since 1997!


And it works, by the way. It's a wonderful cardio workout! My lower body, especially my butt and the backs of my legs, and my back and upper arms have all been completely reshaped since I started my skiing.


Oldies are goodies.

Me want one too!

That's great you are able to use it at home. I had a treadmill at home that I ended up selling about 2 yrs ago. Now I wish I didn't because I could run on it at home when I didn't want to go to the gym. Booo..

My family has one too, bought in the early 90s. It never really was used much and now it's stored away in a back room.
I should try it out again sometime. :)
