Review of Crosstrainer Exercise Machine

Crosstrainer Fitness Machines

What is a Crosstrainer?

Crosstraining is another word for elliptical-training. So crosstrainers are basically elliptical trainers. The latest crosstrainer models include both upper and lower body movement, to work and strengthen muscles in both the upper and lower body. So crosstrainer workouts now provide greater fitness benefits for a lower perceived physical exertion-rate. Elliptical cross trainers are an effective low impact source of muscle strengthening and cardiovascular fitness. Whether used at home or a fitness-gym, they are probably the healthiest, least impact form of cardio-training.

Crosstrainer: Training Heart Rate

Crosstrainer/elliptical workouts produce a training heart rate in the 160-175 bpm range (optimum for burning calories), and the heart rate rises quickly, so the exercise time needed is quite short (20-30 minutes).

Crosstrainer and Stride Pattern

A key feature of a cross trainer/elliptical machine is the stride pattern. A few exercise machines permit the stride pattern to be altered to suit the exerciser. Cross trainers offer weight bearing, cardiovascular-aerobic exercise (but low-impact), so the user has the benefits of a weight bearing exercise routine without jarring the body.

Crosstrainer Exercise Equipment

Crosstrainer machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Crosstrainer machines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
