The Black Friday elliptical machine deals have been consistently some of the most popular Cyber Monday fitness deals, being snapped up by people all over the world.

The electronic console comes with a handy smartphone holder, and the handles have a built-in heart-rate monitor.
Why get an elliptical machine?
Elliptical machines build up your cardiovascular fitness, just like any vigorous exercise machine such as a treadmill or rowing machine might. However, similar to rowing machines, the key lies in the two additions of resistance and a "pulling" motion on the included handles.
This resistance training improves muscles in our back, arms and core in addition to our legs, keeping you stronger and fitter simultaneously. This improved heart health and upper-body strength is essential for later life and provides loads of benefits, improving the muscle-to-fat ratio in your body and making it easier to lose weight in the future.
This compound workout makes you both fitter and stronger, toning muscle while torching fat. It's no wonder elliptical machines are incredibly popular right now.
