What To Look For In An Elliptical Trainer
To get a decent elliptical trainer you should be prepared to spend at least one thousand dollars. If you spend less than that don’t expect the machine to be as well built as the higher end models. It is also very important to try the elliptical trainer out in the store before you buy. The less expensive ellipticals almost always tend to make noise. The more vigorous the workout the more noise it will make. The other problem is they tend also to wobble and move.
With a very fast workout some of these elliptical trainers even move across the floor. Since some machines are not as well built as others, pay special attention to the warranty, and if it’s a short one you should purchase an extended warranty.
Also some of the elliptical trainers were found to be uncomfortable for shorter persons because of the flywheels and handlebars. Watch for your feet not to slip off the pedals, and the movement of the handlebars should not be so wild as to cause you to bump into them.
When reading reviews on elliptical trainers remember that no matter how good a company is, it is always possible for a bad unit to escape notice, till you get it home and assemble it. Most companies are happy to stand by their elliptical trainers and will be very helpful should you have problems with the assembly or the use of the unit.
Buy an elliptical trainer that you are comfortable using and it will become fun and easy to use.
