Swimming. I'm not sure if that would be hard on your knee but it's a great cardio workout. Maybe get a bike(without a motor).

I was going to say step aerobics until I read further that you have knee problems. I am almost positive that kind of exercise would strain it.

In that case, I would have to go w/ swimming as well.

Jumping rope. If you do it right, there is very little strain on your knees, and it burns more calories than anything else in the same amount of time. 10 min. of jumping rope burns as many calories as running for 30 min.

ive been trying to do 20 minutes on the bike and usually 5 jumping rope. I will increase the jump the more strength I get back in my knee.

Swimming is most excellent for joints! Impact is very low on them!
