There's a cross trainer to suit all users of all standards, whether you are looking to loose a few pounds or train for a marathon. Which is best for you depends on budget and what you want to achieve, how often its to be used and where the cross trainer is 'going to live'. Hopefully, this site will give you all the information you need. Let's face it, models are brimming with features and facilities to ensure you get a safe and effective workout but do you need all those flashing lights?
An elliptical trainer or cross-trainer (also called an X-trainer) is a stationary exercise machine used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact injuries. For this reason, people with some injuries can use an elliptical to stay fit, as the low impact affects them little.
Elliptical trainers offer a non-impact cardiovascular workout that can vary from light to high intensity based on the speed of the exercise and the resistance preference set by the user.
When a cross trainer, normally on sale for a pound under £400, goes on sale for half that, you've got to take notice.
We found Orbus Leisure doing just that on the fabulous XT520 Elliptical Cross Trainer.
