Evrery mom of little kids knows how hard it is to be able to get out and get some very needed exercise. I would love to go bike riding to get some exercise, but I can't take my 3 kids with me to do it. I would also like to jog, but I don't want to take the 3 kids all by myself. So I had to find something that I can do without having to leave the house. I can exercise using an elliptical in my own home when the kids are napping so I can do it more often so more likely to keep with it.
