The Intenza 550ETi Elliptical trainer combine the movements of running and stairclimbing but without the bodily impact. This makes the elliptical a great option for exercisers who want a gentler workout because of joint problems or pain. Moving handlebars add an upper body component while adjustable resistance, and incline1, increase effort for a full body workout from a single machine – which makes it a feasible choice for exercisers who are pressed for time.
Studies have found the benefits of an elliptical workout are comparable to those of a treadmill and both are two of the most popular pieces of exercise equipment at most facilities. A good elliptical should be solid, easy to operate, and feel natural to use.
