Why get this elliptical machine deal?
With a heart rate monitor system built into the handlebars and a media holder for your phone, tablet or e-reader, this is a great choice for a home elliptical machine. Wheels on the back make for easy movement and storage, while the low price point is perfect for those getting into fitness for the first time in 2021.
With lockdowns closing gyms across the country, the pandemic is challenging our perceptions of health, and some of us are only getting fit for the first time right now. With that in mind, the elliptical is a low-impact full-body workout that won't hurt your joints, and can be adapted to do total-body resistance exercise or just a quick cardio blitz.
While ellipticals have been a commercial gym staple for donkeys’ years, that doesn’t mean they aren’t suitable for the home. If you’re in the market for one and you have the space - go for it!
