The Stairway to Nowhere

Up early in the morning and off to the gym
Determined once again to get myself slim
The place is full of tight butts and flat abs
How long I'll last here is still up for grabs
I sweat through weights and cardio stuff
After about 30 minutes I had quite enough
There's one more machine that has my name
The stair-stepper always put me to shame
I climb to no-where, my legs giving out
I hate this sucker-Id almost rather be stout
Once again I leave feeling quite depressed
People love this stuff? oh surely you jest....

    actually the star stepper or what ever its called is not for obese who are beginner thou its claims to be zero impact but I've got sprained ankle doing it the bicycle and ski type machine is the best zero impact to burn fats and low weights resistance weight lifts tone muscles and burn faster than the machine. .. Congrats on your win. Morgan
