Cross Trainers

Cross Trainers - sometimes referred to as Elliptical Trainers - have become very popular exercise machines in both gyms and people`s homes. The origins of the exercise can clearly be seen in cross country skiing, but by introducing an elliptical path for the feet to follow more muscle power is recruited to perform the exercise, and therefore more calories are burned. If you need your exercise routine to be low impact then a cross trainer should certainly be a consideration.

In recent years we have seen models appear with adjustable ramps which are used to create an incline for the user to work against, thereby increasing calorie consumption as well as developing fitness levels.

Quietness, too, can be a consideration when choosing an exercise machine, certainly for the home. Whilst no machine can be totally silent, cross trainers in general are very quiet, certainly when compared with treadmills and rowing machines.

Traditionally, there have been three main types of cross trainer. Compact, with the flywheel located between the user`s legs, rear wheel and front wheel. A fourth type, which is less common, is now being adopted by more manufacturers, and this is the centre-drive system.

So, we are frequently asked - which is best? Well, any of them will help you get fit, lose weight etc so long as you like using the machine and you stick with it. Which is why we feel the compact design, with the flywheel beneath you, would probably be least favourite, and the main reason is posture. Compact machines can cause the user to lean forward, and straddling the flywheel housing can feel awkward, even unnatural in some cases, such as with a very wide flywheel housing or when a very short person tries to use one. Generally, compact cross trainers do not feel as smooth and natural to use as the other types.

And for the other types, we don`t think there`s a clear winning type. They all deliver smooth, quiet performance.
