Your workout will fly by if you switch up the machines you use, says Diana Maitland, training manager for Equinox Fitness Clubs in New York City.



To get the best results, pay attention to your rate of perceived exertion (RPE), or how hard you're working on a scale of 1 to 10.


What To Do RPE
0:00-5:00 Warm up gradually 5
5:00-7:00 Pedal steadily at about 85 rpm (level 7-10) 5-7
7:00-8:00 Speed up to 100 rpm (level 7-10) 7-9
8:00-14:00 Repeat minutes 5 to 8 twice more, going 2 minutes moderate and 1 minute fast 5-9
14:00-15:00 Recover for 1 minute 5



Next:  Elliptical

I bike around my neighborhood. There are alot of hills and so its challenging. I try to combine a workout with a destination. For example biking to the library or post office. It's something that I have to do anyway, might as well burn off some calories in the process!

I tried it - it is a fast workout and fun to switch out the machines, but my calorie burn was 300. Still a good 40 minutes
