Elliptical trainers are fantastic exercise machines as they are low impact meaning they are friendlier to your hips and knees. Although they come in different shapes and sizes most are designed so that you drive them with your legs and your arms in combination with each other. This means your arms and your legs can both apply force to the machine, which will have variable tension to increase or decrease the amount of effort required.
Many people prefer an elliptical trainer for their home gym, as it combines the effectiveness of an exercise bike and treadmill into a single machine.
