You might get a similar cardio workout from running outdoors or on an indoor bike, but the benefit of an elliptical trainer is your body’s natural position— because unlike “hunching down” like you do on a bike, or “pounding” like out on the road— an elliptical trainer simulates natural body movement with the added bonus of low joint impact.
The engineering of an elliptical is based on a push/pull movement that syncs the arms and legs simultaneously, maximising a dual—action movement and making it a cardio machine that can provide both an upper and lower—body workout.
Handlebars should be comfortable and the Intenza 550 series Ergo Flex Grip handlebars support more than one gripping position to offer users more options during workouts. The key to maximising upper—body benefits is to distribute weight and resistance evenly. In other words, pumping arms just as fast as moving the legs— when done correctly, the elliptical can target the glutes, hamstrings, quads, chest, back, biceps, triceps and core muscles.
With 10 preset programs, the Intenza 550 Series Elliptical Trainer has a workout to engage and power up everyone from beginners to experts! #howfitnessshouldfeel
