Elliptical trainers are steadily growing in popularity, and are the most exciting machines on the market. Elliptical machines offer a low-impact, or no-impact stride, which can be done in either a forward or reverse motion. This type of stride motion allows you to enjoy an excellent cardiovascular workout without jarring of your hips, knees, ankles or lower back. The smooth motion works the large muscles in your legs, thighs, and lower body. By changing direction, incline, and resistance levels, you will tone your gluteals and quadriceps better than with any other cardiovascular machine. It also effectively works the calves, hamstrings, and hip flexors. It’s the perfect aerobic exercise to help increase bone density without the impact. Ellipticals have taken the world by storm, but all elliptical machines are not created equal. We’ve identified the brands and models with the most bio-mechanically correct adjustments to properly fit the various needs of each user while limiting the amount of stress on the knees, hips and back. So whether you prefer Octane’s 18 different stride length choices or a patented Cybex Arc Trainer, Fitness Showcase is on the leading edge.
