An elliptical machine, also known as a cross-trainer, is a piece of stationary workout equipment that incorporates several different cardiovascular exercises on one machine. On an elliptical trainer, you can simulate running and cross-country skiing. Many machines come with moving arm handles to provide an upper-body workout. According to an article in The Washington Post, an elliptical machine provides a no-impact workout and will not boost bone density or strength muscle.
A treadmill is a type of indoor exercise machine that allows a person to walk, run, or jog in place. Most are electric, but some can be manual; both sorts operate with a circular belt that loops around a stationary base. They are popular in gyms and sports clubs, and can also be purchased by individuals for home use. Most models come with a variety of features including speed and incline options such that users can customize their workout experience pretty easily. Runners often like to train on these machines to do things like springs or speed-controlled exercise, and they can also be a good way for people to get a workout in when the weather is bad or in places where there aren't a lot of safe outdoor running trails.
A recumbent bicycle is a bicycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons; the rider's weight is distributed comfortably over a larger area, support by back and buttocks.
Upright bikes simulate a regular bike, only you don't go anywhere. Bikes are great for toning your thighs and they give your knees a break while offering a terrific aerobic workout. Bikes also suit anyone who wants to read while working out.
