They are many reasons why people prefer to workout on a elliptical
trainer more than they would on a treadmill. Along with
keeping the body in shape and toning up the muscles,
they are low impact cardio vascular workout machines.
This means that they go easy on the joints of the legs
and the knees. Especially helpful for those who are in
the sixties and seventies, or those who have a had a leg
or a knee injury. They also provide a variety of
resistance levels, incline levels and programs for the
beginner as well as the advanced.
Thus treadmills and fitness rowers are high impact
cardio vascular machines. This means that it puts
pressure on the knees as well as on the lower part of
the legs. Not recommended for those with knee and foot
injuries as well as the older people. It's a very safe
machine to use unlike a treadmill machine, where you
might fall off if the speed is increased suddenly. Thus
it provides a complete workout and the more expensive
elliptical exercise trainer come with many additional
features. The more expensive versions of the elliptical
trainers are meant for gym use and those who are into
the advanced state of exercising.
It's important to ask the advice of the doctor before
starting of any exercise. Thus ensure that before you
are ready to join a gym or even climb on top of the
elliptical exercise trainer, a doctor's advice is
heeded. Before you begin to use one, ask a personal
trainer or the gym instructor to show you how to use the
elliptical trainers, this will help you better in the
workout. During your workout, you can change the incline
and the program levels by using the control panel.
Ensure that all electrical and mechanical fittings are
in place to save you from injury.
