    I'll try to keep this quick
    I want to get my fitness up while I'm in uni and I already own a cross-trainer and I want to take it with me, but I'm not sure if it'd be too heavy for a first room floor, and I'm not sure if it seems just a really odd idea.
    Does it seem totally crazy to bring my crosstrainer to uni to keep in my room?

    Thank you.

    Bit mad if you ask me, why not join the university gym and use theirs? That way you make use of the other facilities as well.

    I'm very self conscious of gymming in front of the people in my college though :\ I'd be using the college gym where I know basically EVERYONE (I'm nowhere near the smallest)

    Any more? :erm: thanks

    Use the university gym! Everyone in my gym's too busy working and listening to their ipods/watching the iplayer to care what other people are like.

    (Plus you might not have room for it in your room, just sayin')

    One of my friend's housemates brought a cross trainer to uni.
    They hated her for it - it made so much noise, none of them could concentrate while she was on it.

    Unless you're certain you have thick walls, I'd leave it.
