Residential Elliptical Machines

Residential elliptical exercisers are a combination stair-climber/cross-country-ski simulator. The motion of your feet is in flattened circles or ovals (otherwise known as an ellipse), hence the name elliptical machine. The value of the workout depends on resistance that slows down the elliptical machines drive system as you try to turn it. Some elliptical machines use a band or belt driven drive system; nicer more expensive models use magnetic force to create resistance.

Elliptical machines have become popular for a few reasons:

· The pedaling is low impact and therefore joint friendly.

· Exercise on an elliptical machine is weight-bearing. This helps ward off osteoporosis.

· Movable arms are available on some models. This adds an upper-body benefit to the workout.

· Exercising on an elliptical machine is easy. Some cross country ski machines require a little coordination.

· An elliptical machine burns calories just as effectively as a treadmill.
