What makes an elliptical trainer unique is the combined upper and lower body workout. That is why many refer to an elliptical as a trainer or cross-trainer.
Elliptical trainers offer the benefit of a low-impact workout, while exercising both your upper and lower body
The elliptical is a cross between a treadmill and a cross country ski machine, but instead of your feet sliding back and forth like they would on skis, the pedals will move in an oval or elliptical pattern
Since your feet never leave the pedals, your feet don't strike the ground so there is less stress and strain on your joints
It is like walking or running in midair
The shape of the elliptical movement mimics the natural path of the ankle, knee and hip joints during walking, jogging or running
In comparison, when you walk or run, every step causes a jolt to your body
This affects not only the joints in your legs, but also your lower back

What is the difference between a "magnetic" elliptical and a regular elliptical?sensible33 on Oct 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
In an old fashion elliptical the tension on the wheel is controlled by a cable and a strap that puts tension on it to make it more difficult to move the machine. The new way is through the use of magnets to slow the wheel down instead of the strap which is more efficient and less moving parts to deal with.
