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.

    Perfect for a no space area for a machine. This does a great job and is so portable (if you wanted to) you could take it on vacation!

    This was a decent purchase. I wasn't too impressed but I wasn't disappointed either. I think reading the reviews prior to purchase really prepared my mind for what was to come. It's been about six months now and it's still working. It is more of a stepper that requires a ridiculous amount of energy and strength to operate but I just do what I can. Overall, Im satisfied. Warning: If you are a bigger person this may not work too well for you because my husband who is 6" and weighs around 200lbs finds that the machine tilts a bit with rigorous motion.
