Combine High Intensity with a Low Impact Workout
Ellipticals are used in both home and commercial gyms, elliptical trainers guide your body through a fluid circular motion. Many ellipticals also offer upper body training-so you can make the most of your workout. Choose an elliptical trainer for cardio equipment that delivers a fluid, low-impact workout. Consider whether you're interested in the long-stride length of a front-drive elliptical, the smooth walking motion of a rear-drive elliptical or the reduction and joint stress achieved through a center-drive elliptical. A elliptical crosstrainer is an exercise machine used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact.
