I recently discussed my pending purchase of an elliptical trainer on Blogher- see the article here.
I put a lot of research into the selection of this fitness equipment and I wanted to find out what others had learned from their own experiences. I have destroyed 3 pieces of exercise equipment in less than 2 years, so my extended research was done with this in mind.
But, this post is not about the elliptical I want. This post is about the fact– I had no feedback on the Blogher article [okay– I do tend to make some women angry, but I am sure they do not want to ask if I should be angry]– so I wondered if it was because I posted no graphics with the article. My stats indicate the article has been read 65 times since Friday [2 days ago], and I promise that is not all me. No comments, nothing.
So with this in mind– I went in search of elliptical clipart. Free elliptical clipart. I cannot save up for an elliptical and pay $10.00 a pop for a royalty-free vector graphic. I own Coral Gallery which has a lot of clipart. The problem? I purchased it in 1993 and fitness ellipticals did not exist when I purchased the software. And of course– everyone knows by now– I am not a graphic artist.
The graphic on the right is what I found. Where? Microsoft. Yes, I have used this resource before. Finding free clipart online is rather difficult. Don’t believe me? Search on elliptical clipart and understand what “royalty-free” means.
