Default Cross Trainers for Tall People

Hello all,

I'm looking at getting into shape. I'm 6'2'' and over the last year I've gone from around 230lb to 180lb mainly through diet.

I want to get something like a crosstrainer so I can get rid of my remaining body fat. I also intend to take up weight training again to build some muscle.

My questions a

1 - Are the home cross trainers a good investment? And are they suited to my goals? I'm looking at these:



I'll be honest; I have no idea what I'm looking at.

2 - Bearing in mind that I'm 6'2'' and my ceilings are only 7'6'' am I going to be able to use something like this? I didn't have any problems with my (recently deceased) treadmill so it should be ok, right?

Thanks in advance!
