I came across this graphic from Proform on the benefits of the elliptical trainer, and wanted to share it, because the elliptical can be a great addition to any fitness routine. With virtually no impact and an easy, natural movement, the elliptical can give you a great workout without beating up your body as much as running or other high-impact activities.
Want to get a little extra core work out of your workout? Let go of the handles and stand up straight. Not only will it require you to be aware of your posture, it also helps to improve your balance and core stability.
Is the elliptical part of your regular routine?
