Body Flex Cardio Body Champ Body Rider 2 in 1 Dual Elliptical Trainer | was $369.99 | now $259.99 at Target
Save $110 on this awesome cross trainer. With eight different adjustable levels of magnetic resistance, it offers an excellent cross-training workout in addition to cardiovascular training. With a heart rate monitor and calorie counter built into the dual-action handlebars, you can closely monitor your workout in real time.
The Body Flex Cardio Body Champ allows you to choose your rehabilitation and recovery rhythm. With an easy-to-read console, your full body workout routine can be tracked and monitored.
It even includes a media holder so you can watch Netflix on your tablet while you take your workout to new heights. A slim, light machine, it's also a real space saver.
Elliptical machines are incredibly popular for a reason: one study in the scientific journal Gait Posture found elliptical machines generated more muscle activity in the quads, hamstrings and more than walking, treadmill walking or exercise bikes.
That's not even counting the fact your arms are pumping and core is twisting too, making the elliptical a total-body resistance workout in addition to a great cardio exercise.
