Maximise Your Workouts: The Benefits of Elliptical Trainers

For anyone wanting to ensure they get an excellent workout without the expense and hassle of joining a gym, then consider elliptical trainers for home use. Elliptical trainers offer all the major benefits of a serious cardiovascular workout, but without the impact and jarring action that can occur on the joints. 

Elliptical trainers for home use are just as good as their gym equivalents. Traditional methods of cardiovascular training such running can place stress on your joints, which isn’t the best option if you are on the delicate side. 

Plus, if you have ongoing problems with your hips, knees or ankles, then running is almost always ruled out. If on the other hand you invest in elliptical trainers for home use, you are eliminating the impact of your feet striking the floor and hurting your ankles. 

There is very little impact on your body with elliptical trainers because you aren’t pounding your body on a hard surface. Instead, you are using a cycling motion with your lower body while the upper body is engaged in a backwards/forwards motion. 

This makes elliptical trainers perfect for those who have joint problems, for pregnant women, older people and also anyone who is heavier and finds the running motion on a treadmill difficult or taxing on the muscles. 

Elliptical trainers for home use are also very easy to use, and the dual action of using your arms means they burn some serious calories. In fact, elliptical trainers burn on average 773 calories per hour compared to around 600 calories per hour on a treadmill. 

There’s an added bonus to using elliptical trainers for home use – they are easy to slot into your working or busy day, plus you are able to use elliptical trainers while circuit training or even when doing high intensity or interval training for a serious metabolism boost and calorie burn. 

One of the big attractions for elliptical trainers for home use is that they take up much less space than a treadmill does. This makes them ideal for homes where space is limited, but where you still need a serious piece of home equipment that is going to give you the same results as a treadmill

Overall, elliptical trainers for home use are a great way for the entire family to get fit and have a full body workout in even short periods of time – and all without placing stress on the body.
