First of all I'd like to say that I'm extremely unfit, with me being 5"10 and weighing in at 125kg. I am trying to get fit enough to go on a skiing trip with some friends at work in February so I've started to do around 10 mins(5 mins of which is just warm up exercises) of exercise most days a week on a crossfit trainer. As such I'm wondering what kind of goals i should be setting myself on the crossfit trainer and how comparable they are to walking/running. I have read online that the distance crossfit trainers show are more lenient than more natural exercises so I am unsure whether my current pace of 1.2km in 5 mins on the crossfit trainer is actually comparable to the same pace walking/jogging/running.
Does anyone know how much leeway I should give to this pace so I can more accurately compare to a person doing their pace off the machine?
I also feel a lot of the work being done towards the front of my legs and am worried that I'm not working all my muscles. I don't really have that good a balance on this machine so I feel I lean into the machine more than I should. Is this something I should be concerned about?
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
