FEATURES THAT MATTER MOST
Exercising in your proper heart rate zone, you'll optimize your workout toward meeting your fitness goals.
Most elliptical machines record distance, speed, heart rate and time elapsed. Machines differ greatly in the type and number of workout programs available.
Articulating foot pedals
Articulating foot pedals are most important on front-drive ellipticals since the movement isn't as smooth.
Padded foot pedals
Some ellipticals offer increased padding, such as orthopedic pads, to cushion the pedals for a more comfortable workout.
