I have a cage rack with pullies and a smith machine and squat rack all in one - it is a great machine.

But

My buddy has a versaclimber and he is a MONSTER. They are expensive, but I have though about getting one several times. When I use his I am sore ALL over. It amazes me haw great he looks from just this machine. But he gets after it - like always trying to beat his records and all that and drenched in sweat when he is done.

I'm just scared it will be another piece I will give up on collecting dust - only this one would cost more than my others combined! LOL

You have to build muscle!! You lose muscle mass every year. Take a look at 70yr old person. SKIN AND BONES, ZERO MUSCLE and struggle getting out of a chair , walking up steps , etc. My point is weight training to some degree will keep you in much better shape than just cardio. HELL GO FOR A WALK EVERY DAY! Low impact. Unlike running or jogging. I just think most people don't understand or care to understand. They just start doing cardio because that's most common or ITS EASY. Hmmm, think about it. Most of us are lazy as hell. Doing anything strenuous is, "TOO HARD" BOO F-ing HOO! Suck it up and get after it. You can thank me 20 years from now. It's actually pretty darn empowering once you get into this whole journey. Wish I would have done it 20 years ago.
