Cross trainers are ideal for Cardio Vascular workouts and when paired with a sensible and balanced diet you can shed those pesky pounds in no time at all. Elliptical workouts include both the upper and lower body in the workout meaning that you get an all-round full body workout. Another plus side about using a cross trainer is that the exercise is a low impact activity meaning there is very little stress on your joints and bones. This makes it ideal for anyone with joint pain or aches and less likely to cause injury while exercising.

By using a cross trainer 3-4 times a week and spending 30mins at a reasonable to fast pace will burn a good amount of calories and fat. The other aspect to consider is diet, this is just as important as doing the actual exercise. A balanced diet consists of a good amount of fruit and vegetables, a balance between carbohydrates, calories, fat and protein. By reducing your overall daily calorie intake, eating complex carbohydrates and increasing your protein consumption you will be left feeling fuller for longer and team this with a good exercise routine you are guaranteed to start losing weight.
Protein bars are an ideal way to replace snacking on chocolate bars and will give you a source of extra protein. Protein shakes are also a great source of protein and if taken after exercise will help your body to recover much quicker from the strain.
