Tips For Buying An Elliptical

Elliptical trainers are the latest cardio equipment to hit the market. They tout a full body, low-impact workout — smoother than a treadmill because the foot doesn’t strike a hard surface, and more engaging than a stair-stepper because it involves a circular movement. Some models have handles that strengthen arms while you exercise.

Prices range from $599.95 to $4,500. The difference involves placement of the arm handles — some models have them too close and others have foot pedals that might not be wide enough, according to the American Council on Exercise.

Once you get on a good elliptical, you may not want to go back to a treadmill. Although a good elliptical may cost more than a treadmill.

With an elliptical you work up a sweat much faster, and you hardly know you are moving. It’s like exercising outdoors.

Elliptical machines feature resistance settings to work specific muscle groups — the gluteals, quadriceps, hamstrings and lower legs.

And remember the better the quality of your purchase the more you will want to use it. “The last thing you want is a very expensive clothes hanger.”

Things to consider before you buy.

Measure the space where you plan to put it.  Add your own height to the dimensions of the equipment.

Consider a spot you will visit frequently, such as a corner of the living room or bedroom. “If you trip over it, you’ll remember to exercise often."

Did you know?

Studies show that working-out reduces tension, and people feel a sense of accomplishment when moving up in their workout intensity level.
