Sometimes going into the gym can feel overwhelming with all of the different machines strewn about. Which one should you choose? How do you get the best workout for your time? Here at Fitness HQ, we’ll happily go over that information with you. In the meantime, we’ve presented an overview of the benefits of the elliptical, and why you might want to consider one for yourself.
Work the muscles you want:
Ellipticals focus their workout on your legs, an area many people wish to improve. On top of this, however, they also work out the rest of the body. Because of this, they provide an extremely efficient use of your workout time.
The elliptical provides a great avenue for burning those unwanted calories. In fact, with heavy exertion, you can burn up to 400 calories in just 30 minutes!
Despite the major health benefits of running, it can do a number on the joints. Luckily, ellipticals offer you a low impacts alternative. Because you don’t constantly jar your legs under the weight of your own body, you can rest easy knowing any joint pain won’t get exacerbated.
Have these piqued your interest regarding ellipticals. Give Fitness HQ a call for more information about this or any of our other equipment. You can reach us at (512) 346-9300 for our Austin location or at (210) 699-8100 for our San Antonio location.
