Elliptical training

Who it’s good for: People who have good balance and exercise endurance

Tips: Riding an elliptical machine is not for the exercise novice. It’s ideal for people in good cardiovascular condition who want a higher-intensity, no-impact challenge. Start at a constant ramp height and constant resistance and make adjustments as you get stronger. Or choose a pre-set cross-training program. Adding arm movements will amp up the cardiovascular benefit.
