Kywave, if you have access to a pool, swimming and water aerobics might be the best mode of exercise for someone with arthritis.
Not as an expert by any means, but as someone who has frequented the gym semi-regularly for about 15 years now, I see people of all ages, shapes, and sizes on treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, and rowers. As long as you use the machine/equipment appropriately, and know the limitations of your body (stability, flexibility, strength), any piece of equipment or any cardio machine should be suitable for any person.
Motivation to Run
in Treadmill Questions
I love to exercise. I hate to run. Let me rephrase; I hate running just to run. I love to play soccer or football or frisbee or tag or anything where running is required. But put me on a track and tell me to run, place me on a treadmill and tell me to run, or even plot out a map around town and tell me to run - and I hate it. Any way for me to break this lack of motivation for running? I'd love to have a treadmill, but as of right now, I know it wouldn't be put to use.
