Ellipticals

An elliptical trainer is a popular home gym machine used to provide a low-impact workout. Elliptical machines are designed to encourage exercise with less pressure on the joints than a traditional treadmill. Unlike running and other high-impact sports, an elliptical machine decreases the risk of impact injury by removing the jarring impact associated with jogging -- elliptical machines have oversize foot pads so the foot never has to leave the pedal and never has to slam back down. Some elliptical trainers have articulating pedals that adapt to your stride for an even smoother workout. A correctly calibrated elliptical machine will mimic the natural movement of the hips, knees and ankles to prevent wear and tear; basically an elliptical machine makes walking a little more like cycling.
Elliptical machines typically have adjustable resistance so you can enjoy a high intensity workout or keep the movement easy if you're working your way out of a sedentary lifestyle. While most elliptical trainers work the user's upper and lower body some models do not have moving upper body components. Using an elliptical cross trainer is designed to elevate the heart rate more than build muscles.
Elliptical trainers provided a dual workout; they combine upper and lower body exercises into a single activity so you can enjoy the benefit of two workouts in one. If it's available, make sure to use the upper body part of your elliptical trainer -- set the resistance and use your arms for balance as well as exercise.
Elliptical trainers can actually be more efficient in burning calories than a simple treadmill. By exercising more muscle groups simultaneously on an elliptical machine, a more intense workout can be achieved in less time. Elliptical equipment is currently the most popular item in health clubs and is steadily gaining popularity for use at home.
Like a treadmill many elliptical machines now feature multiple exercise programs. Don't worry about doing the same thing over and over again; you should be able to choose from alternating resistance, hill training or intervals. High-end elliptical machines often have a built-in heart rate monitor so your resistance level is determined by your body's performance.
When you shop at Overstock.com for discount elliptical trainers and other home gym equipment you can fulfill all your fitness needs and burn fat, not hard-earned money.

  • Compact and Sturdy

    Angela B. Rating:5.0

    My husband and I both use this mini elliptical and are both able to work up a sweat. I love that there is an element of balance to the work out...you have to use your core to avoid wobbling. To me, that's a bonus. We love it!

    Wanted a small machine that I could but in my family room to exercise (goal of 10,000 steps per day) at anytime and that would not be an obstruction. It was easy to set up. Easy to use and easy to move around. I have no problem with balancing to use it standing up. Once you get use to the shortened stride it is not difficult to use. I use it while watching tv or movies on Netflix. I have only had it about a month, but so far so good. Hope that I will not have some of the problems listed in the other reviews.

  • Great Little Elliptical Machine

    I wasn't sure about how this would work, but I wanted something so that I could get my UP steps on rainy days --- After 15 minutes in the standing position, his little machine kicked my butt. I am actually quite impressed with the workout I get on this. I do 15 minute intervals in the standing position and each time I break out in a sweat. I have a small apartment so this is PERFECT! I definitely recommend this product.

    TW-mn  from Minnesota, Rating:5.0

    This was very easy to put together. It took me about 15minutes with my 9y.o. helping me. If you are doing it by yourself it would take maybe 7-8 minutes, seriously. It has a smooth ride to it. My whole famliy is enjoying using it. You have to have good balance if you are going to stand and use it. Overall it is a great piece of equipment.

    I had it a month and now it sounds horrible. There does not seem to be a way to fix it.
