I laughed out loud at some of the expected responses.

One a serious note. Have any of you ever been here during a hurricane warning? You must move everything inside, even your garden hose, even your vibrator. Anything that can be blown around in 80-110 mile an hour winds. Not only to protect your property, but to remove missiles that could kill or damage elsewhere. Exercise equipment would be a real nightmare to move inside

Nothing worse than being speared by a vibrator at 110 miles per hour.

One more note: We were away on a trip about six years ago when a hurricane warning came up. When we got home, our neighbors had moved every single item of our stuff inside our garage. EVERYTHING. How great is that?

Yikes!!! Would never had thought of this, but what you've stated shows the importance of keeping disposable rubber gloves on hand just in case you need to move your neighbors vibrator indoors!

I moved into a resale home a couple of years ago. The previous owner had converted the golf cart garage into an air-conditioned workshop since he was an avid woodworker.

I moved my treadmill and stationary bike into the air-conditioned golf cart garage and have a cool, dry place to do exercise and also a window to the golf course.

I have one car and my golf cart in the double garage.

That was one more great point of buying a resale. Could not have found that already in a new house.

OMG, if I ever started using one of those machines, people would be calling their insurance agents to see if they have adequate sinkhole and earthquake coverage!

WOW! Quick, effortless weight loss in just minutes a day.

Not quite that easy... but of all the equipment I own... This is the only one I will bring down with me. I've owned four so far and wore them all out.

Understand that when I first saw one... I laughed at it. Still found it hard to understand what it was about until I researched it. Now... Where I go... it goes. It has a lot of benefits.... One, being that you can't get on it without feeling good...
