Elliptical Trainer Guide

Main Muscle: Quadriceps

  1. To begin, step onto the elliptical and select the desired option from the menu. Most ellipticals have a manual setting, or you can select a program to run. Typically, you can enter your age and weight to estimate the amount of calories burned during exercise. Elevation can be adjusted to change the intensity of the workout.
  2. The handles can be used to monitor your heart rate to help you stay at an appropriate intensity.
Ellipticals offer convenience, cardiovascular benefits, and have far less impact on joints than ground-based cardio such as running. A 150 lb person will burn on average 387 calories in 30 minutes, compared to more than 450-700 calories running. It’s recommended that you use the arms on the elliptical to create more movement, if your elliptical has them.

Aug 5, 2015 4:41 PM: I usually use the elliptical daily for an hour, burning up to nearly 600 calories every time. I'm almost up to 7 miles since I started going to the gym about two weeks ago.
