I'm new to this machine, but I 'm falling in love with it. I think it's easy on my knees.
The only concern is that I feel like I am not really working out...It's just different than treadmill...
Do you think elliptical trainer is still effective?
Have anyone had a good result with this machine?
I use the elliptical trainer Eunie. I can't run because it is too hard on my back. The elliptical does work. Try using the different settings. The hill settings (especially interval) will give you the best workout.
I love that machine! I love running but it's hard on my knees & ankles...
Anyway, I work out (hi-intensity) for an hour and I "supposedly" burn between 900-1000 calories everytime. Of course those numbers are never right b/c it does not take your body type/age into consideration. A 50 yr old, 140 lb woman is going to burn a different amount of calories than a 25 yrs old, 140 lb woman.
they are wonderful! depending on your fitness...1-2 weeks will tone you hips and thighs dramaticaly...tightens them right up. jeans that were tight can slip on no problem after 2 weeks....like, 3 belt holes smaller .......fantastic for hamstrings shapes your butt but doesn't make it BIGGER. yeah...i started going to the gym when i hurt my knees and couldn't run anymore...the eliptical is so fantastic!
I luv that machine too... i'm such a girl but it's first point fo call when i go the gym, after warming up that is, usually go on at the end of my sesh there too each time for 20 mins and on the mountain setting.
