Motivational Monday: Why Ellipticals Are a Great Workout Option

Posted: Updated:

  If you are not ready to run, but walking is too boring, you might want to try an elliptical machine.

  Ellipticals are becoming more popular and have in there gained considerably on treadmills even in overall sales.

  Elliptical machines might offer some advantages over treadmills. For example:

  • Using an elliptical machine can be less stressful on your knees, hips and back than is running on a treadmill. Walking on a treadmill, however, exerts about the same force as using an elliptical machine.
  • Unlike treadmills, some elliptical machines are equipped with movable upper body handles or poles, similar to ski poles. These allow you to exercise both your arms and your legs.
  • Most elliptical machines can be pedaled in reverse, which allows you to work your calf and hamstring muscles a bit more than does forward motion.
