About Cross Trainers

Cross trainers or elliptical trainers are growing in popularity and offer a gentler form of workout in the comfort of your own home. Some claim using a cross-trainer exercises more muscle groups simultaneously and is, therefore, more efficient in burning calories. If you like toned and supple limbs but don’t like the high-impact, muscle-building effects of lifting weights, look into buying an elliptical cross-trainer.

Elliptical cross trainers are great for people of all ages and fitness levels. They are easy to use require little practice and allow you to select a difficulty level through incline and intensity settings. Buying the best cross trainer for your own needs can be a bit daunting.

Cardiovascular exercise machines

For those not familiar with this versatile piece of fitness equipment; they are low impact cardiovascular exercise machines that simulate motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling and skiing. Cross trainers remain stationary and are used by standing in an upright position while holding on to the handrail. You keep your feet on the footplates and by circulating in a smooth fluid motion build strength in your arms and legs with little or no impact on the knees, back and hips.

Popular Elliptical Cross Trainer Brands

You’ll find a large number of brands names making sports and fitness equipment with most of them now producing a range of cross-trainers. Some of these include:

  • Tunturi
  • Pro-Form
  • NordicTrack
  • Horizon
  • Reebok
  • Kettler
  • BH Fitness

As with most fitness equipment purchases the best advice is to buy a high-quality brand that has the features that most suit your needs. Features like resistant systems and stride length vary from machine to machine so it is always best to check and compare the specifications on all the machines you are interested in.
