I'm trying to decide between a Vision Fitness R2200 recumbent bike and a Vision Fitness X6100 Elliptical trainer. The bike runs $1000 and the elliptical is $1400. I'm out of shape, have an occasional pain in my right hip (and left knee) so am looking for a low to no-impact workout. I've heard it both ways.. the recumbent is less impact and the elliptical is less impact. Not sure which, if either, is true. Not overly concerned about the difference in price between the two although $1400 is about as high as I'd want to go for this venture. I hate gyms so refuse to go that route. Hoping you experienced workout types can offer me some advice. Thanks in advance. The elliptical can be seen here. The recumbent can be seen here.
