I’ve been back in a traditional gym (I joined the Planet Fitness so I can go with a friend who uses the location a few blocks from my house) and if you were wondering I still hate the elliptical. The whole motion of the machine just feels unnatural to me and I spent the whole time hating it/trying to do it correctly.
I attempted it for all of 30 seconds and returned to the treadmill for another 15 minutes.
Next up, weight machines A.K.A. lifting heavy things with my parts repetitively.
