Treadmill vs. Elliptical - Which is Better for Getting in Shape

As someone who reviews fitness equipment professionally, I continually get asked which is better for getting in shape, a treadmill or an elliptical trainer? They are the two most popular types of fitness equipment on the market. Treadmills have been around for about 30 years, and elliptical trainers first came on the scene approximately 10 years ago. Since the introduction of elliptical trainers, otherwise known as cross trainers, they have continually gained market share on treadmills.

Treadmill Benefits

The popularity of treadmills is based on the fact they accommodate the most common forms of exercising - walking, jogging and running. You do not need a special talent or coordination to use a treadmill. You just turn on the machine, set the speed and you are off. There are several features that make treadmills appealing.

For some reason, I always had fun on elliptical cross training machines. I am unsure of whether it is because I feel like I am floating on air or have the freedom to go forward or backward, but I’ve always enjoyed working out on them at the gym.

The Life Fitness Club Series Elliptical Cross Trainer is like having a gym style cardio machine in your house.

Elliptical trainers come in all sizes, levels of complexity, and price ranges, varying from fairly simple entry-level models to top of the line types with enough features to make their consoles nearly as complex as those of a jet fighter.

Review of Verso by Kettler CT 307 Elliptical Cross Trainer

For a low-cost, straightforward, entry-level elliptical trainer that gives a fine workout but lacks many of the more sophisticated exercise metrics of the more expensive models, the potential elliptical exerciser may want to turn to the Kettler CT 307 Elliptical Cross Trainer, a compact, affordable model produced by a German company and distributed in the United States by a firm in Virginia.

Review of Schwinn 460 Variable Stride Elliptical Trainer

Most elliptical trainer exercise machines have a fixed stride length – perhaps 18 inches, perhaps 20, depending on the model, but still with no adjustment possible. The Schwinn 460 Variable Stride Elliptical Trainer takes a different approach, however, which I find very useful: the foot pedals automatically adjust the stride length based on the amount of pressure you exert on them with each step.

Review of Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer

The Sole series of elliptical trainer machines offers a whole array of progressively more sophisticated elliptical trainers, with the model number indicating where the particular machine falls on the continuum -- the higher the number, the more advanced the machine.

The Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer represents the higher end of modern elliptical trainer design, and features enough sturdiness, powerful but smooth resistance, and data feedback from its sophisticated computer console to give any level of user a well-rounded workout.
